Janice Dickinson can smile a little easier now, RadarOnline is reporting that the original supermodel’s $1 million in debt, much of it related to plastic surgery bills, has been erased in California courts.
In 2013, 59-year old Janice Dickinson shocked fans by filing for bankruptcy, telling RadarOnline at the time that, “I am upset and taking every step to pay everyone back and I feel terrible about it.”
Just last week, it seems that much of Janice’s financial burden has been relieved, “The debtor is granted a discharge,” according to the documents obtained by Radar state.
Janice reportedly owed $1 million, much of it due to unpaid taxes as well as various bills related to plastic surgery. When she filed for bankruptcy, Janice owed $8,000 to Beverly Hills dermatologist Arnold Klein and over $8,000 in debt to the Beverly Hills Anti-Aging Center.
Prior to the eradication of her financial woes, TMZ reported that her fiancé Dr. Robert Gerner was going to help Janice pay off her debts in installments, including an initial payment of $10,000.
Despite her heavy financial burdens, Janice was still undergoing anti aging treatments. In addition to Botox injections, Janice also told Star magazine that she was traveling to China for a controversial treatment involving human placenta.
She tells Star magazine, “If anybody is going to have a state-of-the-art, revolutionary skin-care miracle, it’s going to be me, with my hand out, first in line. My skin ahs gone from gray to rosy pink, and I feel great!”
The procedure is super new and probably won’t be approved in the United States anytime soon. Because it is so new, any long-term effects or side effects are still unknown. At any rate, it’s unlikely that the procedure will catch on as each treatment is $10,000! Then there is also all the expense of travel to figure in.
And despite having walked down the aisle three times before, in addition to major financial woes, Janice told UsWeekly last December that her wedding to Rocky would be a major event.
“Our wedding is going to make Brad and Angelina’s look like a trip to city hall!”
“It was love at first sight…We complete each other – our personalities really compliment each other.”
Janice is the mother of 27-year-old son Nathan with ex-husband Simon Fields and a 20-year-old daughter Savannah with ex-flame Michael Birnbaum and has appeared on countless magazine covers throughout her career, including Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Vogue and Playboy magazines and has also worked with fashion houses including Versace, Oscar de la Renta and Calvin Klein.
Although she had reinvigorated her career as a judge on America’s Top Model and had her own short lived reality show spinoff, Janice has been largely absent from reality shows making only a handful of appearances, including being on the fourth season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, guest judging RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race back in 2012 and is now covering celebrity news on Janice TV, a program on online network FilmOn.tv.
