“Im not broke,” he answered his a smile when asked about his financial status.
But, despite not being broke, Bolt said, “It has definitely put a damper on me. It was for my future. Everybody knows I have three kids and still looking after my parents.”
Bolt’s lawyer reported that his client’s account had a balance of greater than US$12 million at the end of October 2022, but by the end of the year, only US$12,000 was left, indicating a loss of over US$12 million.
Bolt said base on the comments in the public domain, he is as “confused as the public” as to what happened.
