Its official. Now casinos have been lured into the web of Kelly Murphys deceptive ways. The Rio All Suite Hotel & Casinos Crown Theater and Nightclub apparently has agreed to host Krave Las Vegas (which in the press release announcing the deal, is called the No. 1 gay nightclub in the country) until it reopens later in 2013 as Krave Massive. Krave is a Kelly Murphy-run LGBT entertainment club, which had been trying to open its doors, unsuccessfully, by the end of 2012. The agreement announced between Krave and the Rio allows Krave to operate within the casino every Friday and Saturday night from 10:30 pm to 4 am until such time as Krave Massive is able to open its doors after renovations at its location at Las Vegass Neonopolis.

Theres a problem, though. Kelly Murphy is a felon, previously convicted and sentenced to prison for bank fraud. He served 16 months and subsequently was required to serve 5 years of supervised release. It doesnt seem as if hes learned his lesson, though, because it looks like hes up to his old tricks. But theyre catching up with him. Murphy has opened a number of businesses that cater to the LGBT crowd. Two of the four have been shuttered, closed down. Kellys Copa and Boys Club locations have been locked up and they have been evicted for nonpayment of rent. And word is out that employees at his other spot, Drink & Drag, have had their checks bounce. Murphys also been struggling to open Krave Massive, but has been hit by under-capitalization as they say in the biz world he reportedly had not been able to pay for the renovations needed to pass inspections so that he can get the OK to open the business.

And now, to circumvent all that and additionally, the assumption is, to get a revenue stream going Murphys done a deal with the Rio to get his Krave opened in their facility. Kind of an issue there, though. The Nevada Gaming Commission doesnt work or play well with felons. They tend to look harshly upon casinos doing business with a person with such a background. And the Rio should take a long, hard look at Murphys background. As should anyone who enters into business arrangements with him. Just one word of advice: beware!

re: Kelly Murphy Dupes Nevada Gaming Control

AUTHOR: DD - (United States of America)

Wow. You just never know what you're going to run across when you search online. I had no idea of the common connection of these places. I guess in desperate times you'll try anything, but it seems like this guy Murphy just seems to figure out how to replicate or re-invent himself despite the conviction and evictions -- and bankruptcies. He's either a great salesman or really well connected with the right people. I mean how does a guy like this stay in business? While searching, I also found a report in the Las Vegas Sun newspaper (online, of course - just go to the Sun's website and search for Kelly Murphy), which showed that Krave filed bankruptcy to the tune of $3.5 million in January 2010. From the Sun article:

"The company listed assets of $153,416 against liabilities of $3.5 million -- including some $485,000 owed to the Nevada Department of Taxation and Division of Industrial Relations for sales, entertainment and unemployment taxes; and about $601,000 owed to the IRS for payroll taxes. Another $847,000 in back rent is owed to landlord IRALP Inc., the bankruptcy filing says."

Given the history of Kelly Murphy and the other clubs he's involved with, I'm thinking the new landlords should be pretty wary. I, for one, will not be helping him line his pockets.
