Alanis Morissette got SCREWED!
According to a lawsuit filed by GSO Business Management (they’re the guys who handle high-profile clients’ financial affairs), Alanis’ former business manager Jonathan Schwartz stole close to $5 million from her estate.
The disturbing transgression came to light after Morissette fired Jonathan in 2016 for a new manager. In a smart move, A.M.’s new advisor decided to look into her finances and they subsequently discovered $4.7 million unaccounted for.
After the singer’s camp threatened to sue GSO, the company decided to go after Schwartz himself by requesting a court order to have him removed from the firm. Furthermore, GSO is ordering J.S. to pay every cent back to the Canadian.
As for what John spent some of the money on, the suit claims he paid off a $75K gambling debt in addition to financing a lavish $50K trip to Bora Bora. Apparently the alleged thief has a taste for the high life and unfortunately used the musician to fund his opulent lifestyle.
Ugh! This is the LAST thing the beauty needs now that she’s pregnant with baby #2!
But wait, the insanity doesn’t stop there! Jonathan’s defense claims he used the dough to finance a pot farm business at Ms. Morissette’s request. Obviously, the creative’s reps vehemently deny this wild assertion.
Hopefully this case is resolved as quickly as possible. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for you Alanis!
