“There was a time when the bankers let you go down, down, down… And me, he really let me go down very, very low. It contributed to my downfall, up to 2.8 million euros in overdraft (..) They had taken my apartment as collateral… One day, they told me, now you have to repay, and we will take you your apartment,” he said.

'I still have it by the way, there's a pile of stones left, it's worth a euro I think,' he explained.

More that's not all . Another drama also contributed .

“I had bought offices in Paris (…) I had bought that for 2.2 million. The offices were transformed without my knowing it into a hotel residence, it was not worth a lot of money. And the guy who sold me this, I was going to see him to say to him: 'Now you are going to give me back my dough. We had reached an agreement and the guy killed himself on the highway the next day. »
