The Young and the Restless Daytime Emmy-winning Shemar Moore (Ex-Malcolm), who went on to star for 11 seasons on Criminal Minds as Derek Morgan was in a courtroom in San Fernando, California on Wednesday of this week.  It all happened because of an actor who guest-starred on two episodes of the CBS procedural drama back in 2013, who pleaded no contest to charges that he stole more than $60, 000 from Mooore! According to the L.A Times: actor Keith Tisdell, 42, agreed to repay Moore, 46, the sum of $61,084.

Prosecutors charged that Tisdell took the money after he befriended Moore when they appeared in the same Season 8 episode. Tisdell was playing a character named Rodney Harrison. Shemar told the judge ahead of the sentencing of Tisdell that, “In bringing that story to life, we became friends. … We went into business together.”

That business Moore is referring to is none other than Shemar’s famous Baby Girl LLC, which sprung out of Moore’s favorite catch-phrase on Criminal Minds,  “Baby girl”.   However, Baby Girl LLC was started as a charity to help battle multiple sclerosis, a disease from which his mother suffered.  Tisdell was involved with the organization. Records show he was arrested on suspicion of embezzlement in January but ultimately admitted to grand theft.

During their friendship, Moore said he bought Tisdell $10,000 rims for his car, funded shared overseas vacations and gave him up to $20,000 to help with expenses. When an audit revealed cash from the organization was missing, Moore confronted Tisdell, who denied stealing the money, the actor said in court.

Shemar went on to say before the sentencing: “I’ve done a lot for him because he had me, my friends fooled.  I’m not here for money. I’m here because he betrayed a friendship. This is not OK. You don’t do this to people.”   In the end, Tisdell’s attorney gave Moore $5,000 worth of money orders. Tisdell has to repay about $56,000 in the near future,  or he could end up in jail.

What do you think about Moore being swindled by his friend and business partner? Do we all need to heed the warning and be much more careful in who we trust in our lives?  And on a side note: do you hope Shemar will come back home to Y&R somehow, someway in the near future?  Share your thoughts below!

    That’s an odd theft, Jimmy! The thief must’ve wanted the shoes for their own dolls or he or she has an even odder foot fetish!

    Oh, my, Jimmy. I still have my Barbies. None of them has shoes. That’s quite a feat, my friend. How did your daughter manage to hold on to those tiny little shoes? Mine always got stuck in the vacuum cleaner….Shoes are typically first to go missing on Barbies. LOL.
    I’m with 4ever. Weird thief with a Barbie foot fetish.
    Poor Shemar!!!! That’s a bummer….not so much the theft ; but being betrayed by a friend. WOW!! We live and learn. Be more visceral in judging people, maybe?

    My God—I feel so bad for Shemar. Nobody deserves this and how he got trampled on is a crying shame. I have had the same done to me but not to the extreme that was done to Shemar. I am glad he will have some closure to this I hope.

    As far as I’m concerned, that Keith Tisdell clown is nothing but an embezzler and a con artist.

    Just saying……….

    It’s a shame. Glad Shemar took him to court. It is not okay to do that. Shemar did a lot for him, was a very generous friend, and Tisdell took advantage of that.

    How long does he have to repay the money? I doubt he’ll be getting other acting jobs.

    Now everyone thinks Shemar is gay. Huh. I pray not.

    I don’t see any of these comments indicating what you’re suggesting, pat.

    You must be referring to comments on other sites or your friend, family and neighbors.

    Maybe people think that because there isn’t much documented dating history between Shemar and women. Or is it because he so easily trusted a man with so much of his money? Could it be because he’s been seen with the thief many times at different places? Possibly the concern is Shemar paid the man’s living expenses and had shared vacations together?

    For whatever reasons you or others have for suspecting him of possibly being gay, why would you be praying for him to not be gay? He is what he is already. Praying won’t change his sexual orientation.
