  1. Yeah let’s fund his drug hobbit a bit more hey. That’s why they stopped funding him. Just like cousins they do not support drug addicts who were given a life line at the club but decided to keep using.

  2. Because he did not have the self-discipline to save any money while earning hundreds of thousands of dollars has to ask others to fund him, what a joke of a man. I would love to know when the shoe was on the other foot and he was earning the big bucks if he dished out to any charities with their hands out?
