The Wealth of Croesus

This article gives you an insight into the crazy, wonderful life of a billionaire. The chap in question is the co-founder of some microchip company, whose private details are unravelling in court following a series of lawsuits.

The pick of the vignettes that are titillating the court include:

  • He had a secret underground party room, that even his wife was unaware of,
  • He smoked so much dope on his private jet that the pilot was forced to wear an oxygen mask,
  • He set up a drugs warehouse and dressed it up with fine art and top end audio-visual kit,
  • He would invoice friends and employees for drugs and hookers, for tax purposes, itemising these as "party favours".
Work hard, play hard.
