Lawyers for Beso LLC said in a federal Chapter 11 filing on Thursday that they project losing more than $76,000 per month at the CityCenter restaurant and nightspot.

Lawyers say Beso owes nearly $1.8 million to CityCenter for its lease at the Crystals mall inside the resort complex.

Longoria owns nearly one-third of the business but is also listed as an unsecured creditor.

Lawyers report she gave a cash loan of just over $1 million and paid $375,000 in legal fees.
