Many of you will be watching the Academy Awards tonight.
One person who won’t be watching is a former A list celebrity in his corner of the entertainment world.
He is dead.
He was murdered.
Back in the day when he was at his peak looks and popularity, he still didn’t make as much money as someone would in mainstream entertainment. He did however have a long time benefactor who paid the bills and gave our celebrity an allowance each month that was considerable.
The benefactor was the mogul who seems to pop up so often in these stories with the violent endings.
At this point in his life, our celebrity was not doing very well financially and was all set to tell his tales.
It was going to be a book.
As part of the process of the book writing, word got back to our mogul.
He offered some money to the celebrity to drop the whole idea, but the money was a pittance compared to the advances that publishers had been offering.
Within two weeks of the mogul hearing about the book deal, our celebrity was dead.
Mogul: David Geffen
