Misplaced Assumptions

As a fallback, many celebrities are venturing into businesses. Careers in the entertainment industry are unstable and there is truth in the saying that one is only as good as the last project. If the last project flops, the celebrity might be put on hold, as producers would not want a succession of losses.

Celebrity Entrepreneur (CE) realized the possible fleeting stage of her career in only a few years of her career. At that time. CE already had a name and at the peak of her career. Thus, she banked on her fame when she opened her business. After a short-lived endeavor, CE had to close shop. However, she was already hooked on opening businesses. Similar to the entertainment industry, the business climate can be volatile and clients can be picky. Her businesses were not doing well, as the years passed.

Although CE would have projects, her calling to entrepreneurship was loud. However, she no longer has enough money to invest. It was time for friends to help.

CE tried to ask for financial assistance from Wealthy Acquaintance (WA). WA would have the money CE needed, but she did not receive any favorable response. WA was too busy with his own affairs, especially in taking care of his younger ward.

Lucky for CE, her Businessman Friend (BF) offered help. Accordingly, BF assisted CE in securing a seven-digit loan from a bank with him as guarantor. The deal is that CE will regularly deposit money in BF’s account to payback the loan. The bank will then deduct an amount from the bank account of BF. During the first few months, CE was consistent with the payment. Then, she started skipping months and soon, no payment was being transacted in BF’s account.

Sensing something was very wrong, BF went to the home of CE to ask for payment. The two talked and BF explained that he needs to be paid soon, as he has bills and tuition fees to pay. His wife has already noticed the withdrawal of the huge amount from their account regularly.

CE explained that she has no regular work and the business she opened was at a loss. As CE was alone at her home at that time, she said to BF if her body could be her initial payment and dropped her clothes. BF was aghast at seeing the naked body of CE. He replied that he is a happily married man and she’s too old for him. He insisted that he only wants his money back and told her to put on her clothes immediately. Then, he added that she should make payment arrangements within the next few weeks, or else, he’ll see her in court.

  1. Applause for BF. Hope he gets his money back though.

    CE - plan your businesses well if you want to succeed. But first, find means, unload your properties if any, to pay BF.
