Cindy Sims

Cindy Sims was Harry Nilsson's business manager and a co-founder of Hawkeye Entertainment. In 1991 Harry and his family had just moved to a new home in Hidden Hills, California, and had placed their Bel Air, California, home on the market when they discovered that Sims had been embezzling their money.

The Nilssons were forced into bankruptcy. "We went to bed one night a financially secure family of eight and woke up the next morning with $300 in our checking account," Nilsson wrote in a letter filed in court. Sims even took foreclosure notices off his home so he wouldn't know.

Finally, one Sunday morning, the Nilssons found one of the notices in the mailbox. It was the first Harry knew of the financial problems. "I'm scared," Harry wrote in the court letter, "I never believed this could happen. It was my greatest fear growing up and it's still my greatest fear. I used to tell Cindy (Sims) the worst thing that could happen to me would be to not have money again."

Harry and his family were forced to borrow money from friends such as Ringo Starr and to move to a more modest home in Agoura Hills, California.

Sims pleaded guilty to three counts of grand theft and served two years in state prison before being paroled in June of 1994.
