NYPD Blue and Deadwood creator, David Milch, loses $100 million on gambling

Four time Emmy Award winner, David Milch, 70, who is one of Hollywood’s finest writers and producers, who wrote Hill Street Blue, co-created NYPD Blue, and was the executive producer of HBO’s Deadwood has lost most of his $100 million fortune to gambling. In late 2015, Milch’s wife, Rita Milch, filed a $25 million dollar lawsuit against the couple’s business managers, Nigro Karlin Segal Feldsein & Bolno LLP (NFSFB), (who also represent Dr Dre, Eminem and Madonna), claiming that they did not inform her of her desperate financial situation. According to reports, Milch is currently living on an allowance of $40 per week, owes $5 million to the IRS, $10 million in mortgages and $2 million in fees. The couple have downsized their multi-million dollar property portfolio, and are currently living in a modest rental property in Santa Monica. Rita has sold a significant amount of her jewelry and art, and has organized garage sales to help support her family.
