Gay far-right activist Milo Yiannopoulos owes $2 million to different people and companies, among which, it part, are his employees (3/4 of the debt are owed to them), a wedding venue, former lawyers, jewelry company Cartier and the billionaire Mercer family. Far-right writers and provocateurs including Pamela Geller, Ian Miles Cheong and Theodore Beale—also known as Vox Day—are also waiting for their fellow far-right activist to pay some money to them. While attempting to get his Australian tour off the ground, Yiannopoulos reportedly asked his former promoters, Australian Events Management, to pay his living expenses, his employees’ wages and medical bills for him and his husband. He is also said to have asked brothers Ben and Dan Spiller, who ran the company, for sums which the Spillers say they had already given him. “I am less financially secure, more panicked and stressed, and more miserable than when we started,” he told the brothers, before adding that he had had to return his wedding ring to Cartier to settle his debt with the company.
