With all the negative attention Martin Shkreli has been receiving, it seems like he just likes the spotlight more than anything.
Last week we reported that Shkreli had offered Kanye West $10 million for the rights to his album The Life of Pablo which may have been a factor in the delayed release. Shkreli clearly just wanted to disrupt all the attention that the album was receiving, but now it looks like his plan has backfired.
In a series of tweets posted over the weekend, Shkreli claims that he lost $15 million in Bitcoin to someone thought to be of Kanye's camp. The fake sale of the album apparently got the best of the notorious pharam-exec who is known for hiking the price of a crucial drug by %5,000 and who also has been sharing creepy videos while beefing with Ghostface Killah and RZA after purchasing the one-off Wu Tang Clan album, Once Upon a Time In Shaolin.
“SOMEONE NAMED DAQUAN SAID HE WAS KANYES BOY AND I SIGND THE DEAL TO BUY PALBO AND SENT THE BITCOIN. CALL THE POLICE THIS IS BULSHIT” Shkreli tweeted.
Shkreli didn't stop there. He set up a video chat for anyone interested in helping him locate the missing money. There no telling what that chatroom was like, but apparently he then contacted Satoshi, the creator of Bitcoin, to get his money back.
The bizarre stories that have surfaced regarding Shkreli seem to keep getting weirder by the day and there's really no telling what stunt he will try to pull next. Read Shkreli's tweets below to recap the situation.
