Kim Dotcom is crying a river of tears because he is broke…though I note he hasn’t yet moved out of his rented mansion.
German entrepreneur Kim Dotcom has acknowledged that he has run out of money after spending over $US10 million on legal costs.
Speaking through a Skype call at the unBound Digital conference in London, Dotcom said his three-year legal fight could be coming to an end. âMy legal team resigned after I ran out of money,â Dotcom said. âI spent $US10 million to defend myself. They have drained all my resources.â
In times past this was referred to as a ‘forlorn hope’. Recklessly charging ahead despite overwhleming odds, hoping for a miracle.
He wouldn’t have such massive legal bills if he had only just hopped on a plan to the US and cleared his name. He has claimed innocence yet acts like a guilty crook.
Dotcom said the appearance could be his last public interview, because he suspected that the New Zealand government could use his lack of funds to revoke his bail Thursday during his next bail hearing.
âIâm an easy target because of my flamboyant lifestyle,â he said. âItâs hard to keep a low profile when you have number plates with âGODâ and âSTONEDâ on them. Also, Iâm German, and Hollywood loves German Bond villains.â
