Rachel Dolezal Facing Felony Charges For Welfare Fraud — She Was Pretending To Be Poor!

no title

It sounds like Rachel Dolezal is about to identify as a felon.

The former president of the NAACP's Spokane, Washington chapter rose to infamy when it was revealed she was posing as an African American.

The spotlight brought more scrutiny, as it often does *cough*Trump*cough*, and someone at the Department of Social and Health Services noticed gurl had a book deal but only reported $300/month income. Huh?

After a yearlong investigation, Dolezal — sorry, Nkechi Diallo, as she prefers — is facing charges of welfare fraud, perjury, and false verification for public assistance.

Yep. She was getting welfare. While also depositing about $84K into her back account over the course of two years, according to investigators.

Just another reason she's one of those celebs we just wish we'd never heard of…

Ever Wonder How Stars Can Lose All Their Money?? Check Out The Latest From Johnny Depp's Lawsuit!

no title

We've heard the story a hundred times — but how exactly can a management group lose all their star's money without him finding out about it?

The latest docs from Johnny Depp's ongoing legal battle with TMG may give some insight into the alleged coverup.

According to TMZ, the newest tune Jack Sparrow is singing in his fraud lawsuit is that The Management Group took out loans over a decade to cover up the money they had lost — using Depp's own property as collateral!

The loans reportedly total over $40 MILLION, the largest being $22 mil in a single loan from City National Bank! Wowza.

So we know TMG says Johnny dropped the money on a troubling wine habit and an audio engineer to give him his lines; what does he say they blew the money on??

The Pirates Of The Caribbean star says it was all just carelessness and incompetence. For instance, they paid off a neighbor who claimed to have a property dispute without even looking into it — and apparently kept doing so for years, as the $3,000/month starting in 2007 added up to $320K! Another time he says they simply forgot to cancel a lease, costing another $350K!

Johnny says he only found out about all the money problems in 2015 when TMG told him he would have to sell some of his property in France to keep from going broke. Eesh. Now he's just trying to get back $25 mil.

How does TMG feel about this? Well their attorney Michael Kump says:

That return to Dance Moms is going to have to wait a while…

After months of being held in suspense, now Abby Lee Miller is going to be held in prison as she was sentenced on Monday to one year and one day in federal prison for bankruptcy fraud.

As you may recall, back in 2015 Miller was accused of hiding $775,000 of income in a secret bank account while filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, charges to which she plead guilty last summer.

Miller was ordered to pay the $120,000 Australian that she snuck into the country and was fined an additional $40K.

Before her sentencing, the 50-year-old reality star admitted to People how terrified she was of prison, saying:

Soccer Superstar Lionel Messi Sentenced To 21 Months In Prison For Fraud — But He'll Probably Never See A Jail Cell!

Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersSoccerControversy

Well this seems pretty foul…

Lionel Messi is pretty much God's gift to soccer (sorry — football), but that doesn't mean he's the best at everything else in his life — like his finances.

In fact, the 29-year-old superstar was just sentenced to 21 months in prison for three counts of tax fraud early Wednesday morning!

We guess it's a good thing Leo decided to retire so young… because according to Spanish courts, the former Barcelona forward was accused of hiding more than $11 MILLION between 2007 and 2009!

However, along with his father Jorge Horacio Messi, Lionel is expected to serve out his sentence under probation as opposed to any actual jail time due to Spain's leniency on first-time offenders/the most famous man in the country.

Score one for Leo!

With that said, $11M is a ton of money, so maybe they'll try to make an example out of the Argentinian athlete after all??

Yeah… probably not.
