As a child
Dan Bilzerian was born on December 7th, 1980, in Tampa Bay, Florida. Private equity and corporate takeover specialist Paul Bilzerian, Dan’s father, was a significant figure in the 1980s. Through his father, Dan is Armenian. Paul Bilzerian had already built a $40 million fortune by the time he was 36 years old. The bad news is that Paul was accused of tax and security fraud in 1988. Dan had just turned eight years old. As of 2001, the older Bilzerian had only $15,000 in assets and was over $140 million in debt.
Terri Steffen is the name of Dan’s mother. Adam is Dan’s brother and a professional poker player. The family formerly occupied Tampa’s largest residence, a 28,000-square-foot estate with ten bedrooms, during its height. After Paul fled to the Caribbean to avoid imprisonment, this residence was foreclosed on in 2016. Prior to the indictment of their father, Dan and Adam apparently had trust funds set up. How much of Dan’s current affluent lifestyle is the result of these money, and whether any of those funds were obtained illegally as a result of Paul’s alleged tax and security crimes is still up for debate.

After Bradley Ruderman was sentenced to jail in 2011, Dan and eleven other celebrities were ordered to pay back their earnings from Ruderman’s Ponzi scam.

Issues of Law
Lone Survivor’s producers were sued by Bilzerian, who claimed his $1 million loan was in exchange for 8 minutes of screen time and 80 lines of conversation. It was only a brief appearance in the final cut of the film, and he only said a single line of speech. For $1.2 million (plus 20 percent), he filed a lawsuit. In the end, the film’s popularity allowed Dan to recoup his initial investment of $1.5 million in the form of a profit of $1.5 million.
During a fight with model Vanessa Castano in August 2014, Dan was barred from a Miami nightclub. Victim: Dan said Vanessa and another woman had beaten his girlfriend. Castano sought $1 million in damages from Dan as a result of her injuries.
Janice Griffith, a pornographic actress, sued Dan later that year. For a Hustler picture session, he allegedly hurled her off a rooftop and into a swimming pool. Nevertheless, she suffered a fractured foot after falling short of the pool and striking the edge. She requested $85,000 from Bilzerian for her injuries, but he turned her down. Griffith then sued both Hustler and Bilzerian for damages.
Dan Bilzerian was detained at LAX Airport in December on suspicion of bomb-making. Immediately upon the dismissal of his charges, he was freed from custody. “Negligently neglecting to extinguish a fire in the open” was the allegation against Dan in February 2015. He was sentenced to pay $17, 231.
