Makes you wonder, if he has a lot of money, why did he choose to stay in the same house as his parents in law all these years?
The answer to that question was made clear round the time he had relocated to a hotel in Istria on the northern Croatian coast after the earthquake. He tweeted out something to the effect that he didn’t want his girls growing up in Sisak where the standard of living was low and suggested he was going to begin looking at properties in Istria.
At the end of the Andrew Gold interview, he said something about living in retirement on an island with a fishing boat. He probably had enough to purchase a place in Istria but living on the coast or on an island is a few steps up from that and won’t come cheap.
There was also the problem of his wife and he likely was also looking for a place to deposit her and the girls on the mainland whilst he had sex holidays at his island retreat.
This whole scandal has jeopardised all of these grandiose plans and it’s notable that he mentioned to Andrew Gold that he regretted he could not reach out to every lapsed Patron to tell them they have been misled and to invite them to donate again. He doesn’t want to go back to 2017-2018 levels. He wants that 1000 patron goal for a reason. I think he was planning on living a life of semi-retirement from exJW activism at his beach retreat and handing over the keys to the Lloyd Evans channel to a Mark O’Donnell type whilst at the same time keeping all Patrons and donations for the channel and giving whoever took it over a salary similar to Tibor’s. He envisioned an “activist emeritus” position for himself and he could be interviewed by Zoom whenever the next WT scandal broke.
This is also why he cancelled a planned two month sojourn in Thailand and rushed back to Croatia after three weeks in order to stop his wife from divorcing him. He doesn’t want a public divorce and at the time all his activities had been kept secret. It also puts strain on his finances to pay child and spousal support, especially when based off Ipsilon Media earnings.
Hmmm ever wonder how he might have enticed his wife back into a marriage arrangement during this last holiday? I hope she put her foot down for a home deeded to only herself.
So appropriate for penniless ex JWs still trying to gain their own balance to donate to him so he can have a home on an island & to pay the wife off so he doesn’t struggle to pay child support.
