Bitcoin Investor ‘Hollywood Madam’ Files Lawsuit Against Former Friend for Crypto Access Theft
Heidi Fleiss is suing her former friend for allegedly stealing millions in bitcoins. Fleiss planned on using the funds to save a species of parrots.
According to court documents, Fleiss inherited funds from her father’s estate and thereafter, she converted the money to bitcoin.
Fleiss also gave her former friend $1 million USD for cryptocurrency investment at the time. Two years later though, Fleiss asked for the funds back and her friend refused.
Rather, her friend opted to continue controlling Fleiss’s cryptocurrency accounts. According to Fleiss, the funds would have generated a $1 million profit by now, and moreover, she is alleging $4 million in damages.
