LONDON - The bosses of actress Eva Longoria’s Las Vegas restaurant and nightclub have filed for bankruptcy after racking up debts of almost $5.7 million.
The Desperate Housewives star launched the Sin City branch of Beso with business partner Todd English in December 2009 — a year after opening her flagship Hollywood restaurant with the same name.
The lawyers for Beso LLC filed legal papers in a Vegas court Thursday.
The lawyer said the company was expected to pile up losses of more than $76,000 a month, while Beso executives owed nearly $1.8 million in lease payments, contactmusic.com reports.
Longoria, who owns a third of Beso, had poured her own cash into the firm and recently boosted the business with a $1 million loan and covered $375,000 in legal fees.
