Actor Tobey Maguire is being sued over an illegal gambling ring that ran secret multi-million dollar poker games. An FBI Investigation found that Brad Ruderman, the CEO of Ruderman Capital Partners, lost $25 million of investor money in the poker games, including over $300,000 to Maguire. The games had a $100,000 buy-in. Lawyers for Ruderman’s clients are filing several lawsuits against the winners, in order to retrieve some of the money. Maguire was reportedly winning up to $1 million a month for three years. Other A-listers were involved in the poker ring, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon; however, they are not being sued. One source recalled, “Matt never won.”
