Blind Item #10

This permanent A list mostly movie actor who is an Oscar nominee/winner owns a distillery as part of a LLC he established about a decade or so ago. The liquor produced by the distillery is not doing well against one of the most established names in that type of liquor. which distributes all over the world and to the country next door. Our actor had several of his employees go to work for the well established rival and randomly put poison in the barrels of liquor. They did so and now people are dying. He is hoping the liquor company will have its reputation ruined and he can swoop in.

Clooney/The DOminican Republic ?

sandybrook said...

Clooney's?

Tricia13 said...

5Americans died there last few years... does Sean Penn own anything? Can see him here

Natalie said...

If you really have this info then why are you going to the fbi or whoever. Are we all now accomplices?

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

Wow! This sounds a little over the top for belief, but, agreed, it sounds like it's meant to be Clooney.

DontQuitYourDayJob said...

And Beyonce was there with James Dean.

Brayson87 said...

That seems pretty extreme, there's bad liquor all over place nowadays anyway.

E said...

If Enty knows, the authorities know, trust on this. I'm sure that's how he found out in the first place

Nummi said...

Not buying this one.

Boldblonde said...

@Natalie, you must not be aware of how this site works

Boldblonde said...

Sounds very plausible. These people could have indeed died if they all drank the same poisoned alcohol.

HushHush said...

This probably the DR. Mexico had several cases of tourists dying from wood alcohol. The bartenders were putting rubbing alcohol in the booze at all inclusive resorts. This would make more sense if it was a rival resort, or country, because I'm off the idea of the Dominican Republic.
Who else owns a liquor company? Clooney sold his. Dan Aykroyd has a vodka company, Crystal Skull or something.

kiki71 said...

Omg, seriously. Clooney has that 'guy next door' appeal on screen supposedly and yet he is in a bearded fake relationship with prop kids he never sees all in order to run as a politician some day and now this with the tequila company. Plus all his shady gay stuff like the accident in Italy. These blinds plus the transgender your kids club for Hollywood highbrau mommies makes me want to vomit. I live here and work in the biz but am still shocked by the level of soul-selling depravity that goes on.

CBGB said...

This is dark.

+1 Natalie

Tricia13 said...

Quite a few Matt M has a bourbon ,Reynolds a gin, I thought Penn might.... he’s definitely a bastard-but rating is specific to “Perm A”?(

Kellikopter said...

Hugh Jackman has something too. Remember that video he and Ryan Reynolds did where they were supposed to make commercials for each other's liquor company?

Kellikopter said...

But RR and HJ would be foreign born, right? And idk about Hugh, but Ryan has never won or been nominated for an Oscar, I don't think.

HushHush said...

+1 Tricia.
I guess we should count out Ron Burgundy Scotch. It's real, but it doesn't come from Whore Island like he said in the movie.

Kellikopter said...

@Tricia, I think Matthew just has an endorsement deal with Wild Turkey. I don't think he owns anything.

Tricia13 said...

@kellikopterGotcha! And I can never see “hey hey hey”... doing that!
@HushHush😂❤️RB.... “I’m in a glass case of emotion”!

HushHush said...

It says country next door. So either it's Mexico, or Dominican Republic.
Like I said, there's been deaths in Mexican resorts, but DR is big in the news.
I think it's Sean Penn. He lived Haiti after the 2010 earthquake working relief. So that is "a decade or so ago." Plus Haiti is falling apart now, not unlike Venezuela.

Unknown said...

Sounds like a bunch of bull. But just in case Enty, can you at least reveal the type of liquor so I can stay away from it on my next trip to the DR?

hiyosilvergirl said...

Dan Aykroyd started up Crystal Head Vodka about a decade ago.

HushHush said...

While we're talking about the DR. I'm looking forward to/waiting for, a blind about who shot David Ortiz. They say the hitman was a cop. Who would take out Papi? That would be like shooting Bob Marley's band, oh wait.

Melvin The Reanimated said...

I have connections to the liquor industry. I know for a fact Casamigos is doing well. Crystal Head is not. This is Dan Aykroyd, not Clooney

Heather said...

Does anyone own a rum company? I mean DR is more rum than vodka, tequila, gin, etc. It is garbage. Also, this doesn't add up, people would not JUST BE SICK IN THE D.R. I caught montezuma's revenge there back in 2003 and cannot believe people go there.

nancer said...

oh yeah, kill the competition's customers. sure, that will work! nobody will ever know! my employees would never rat me out! they'd never extort me! it's a perfect plan!!

this blind is a load of pure horse shit. way too many of the blinds are these days.

Hanniam said...

@nancer: With you on the horse shit call here.

And it wouldn’t even make sense for Dan Akroyd in DR. They’re not known for their vodka. Neither is Mexico. And while Canada has some very good vodkas, none is an industry leader that I can think of.

Sounds like the story is supposed to be about Casamigos and Mexico, but their biggest US exports by volume are way down market from Casamigos competitors. And to get the best stuff, you’ve gotta buy in Mexico anyway.

Thorne said...

Uh you better reveal this one NOW

twounstable2 said...

👍

Unknown said...

So the takeaway from this is maybe, maybe, maybe Dan Ackroyd is making his own ghosts to bust, money coming and going.👻👻👻👻👻👻👻💀

Gnarfcat said...

The Dominican Rebuplic deaths are thought to be from some sort of poison or toxin. The poor victims all shared the same symptoms - They think it might be from pesticides sprayed just prior to death in the area though.

Morninglorri said...

Haiti is literally next door to the Dominican Republic

Kate k said...

😂😂😂

MeliticusBee said...

The blind says that liquor brand is owned by an llc started by the actor. The LLC doesn’t have to be open about their ownership. i.e. actor’s ownership is undisclosed.
I think this is Sean Penn and a rum produced in Haiti.
There have also been deaths in Fiji that are similar to DR deaths which would rule out pesticide spraying...especially since symptoms are not those usually associated with organophosphate (pesticides) poisoning.

celebrity murderer said...

This is made-up like all the other 'murder blinds.'

Gator said...

I thought Clooney sold the business & made a killing....no pun intended. What happened in the DR is certainly suspicious, though.

MeliticusBee said...

Notable that the earthquake in Haiti was 9 1/2 years ago...
LLC was set up about a ‘decade’ ago.
This is Penn.

hothotheat said...

Sean Penn

HushHush said...

@MeticusBee Rumour has it that the 2 deaths in Fiji were from Ebola. There's a huge, uncontrolled outbreak in the Congo. Check out Florida Maquis on Youtube. That is the worst case scenario. And it's not the only case.

I wondered if the deaths in the DR were related, but it sounds like poison/pesticide. There have been other deaths of tourist in the past in places like Thailand, in Phuket. Pesticide in drink containers (two Canadian sisters), and two NYC sisters last year in the south pacific I think. The Mexican cartels have targeted tourist spots in the past to destabilize their economy and government.

Rosie riveter said...

Also
This not true.

B626 said...

Akroyd is A+List? An Academy Award winner nominee?
Read the blind

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Hey, @B626, Aykroyd was nominated for Driving Miss Daisy. Do some research before you make pithy comments that make you look like an idiot.

Vita said...

Based upon the info, i think sean penn, Haiti/DR is the most likely guess. His life seems to wander into lots of blurred lines. This is creepy as shit, and hoping not true.

As far as poor David Ortiz, I read that they believe it was a paid hit put out by a politician who believed he'd been flirting with/having affair with his wife. That hit in such a crowded spot was terrifying and insane.

HeatherBee said...

Do you think they murdered Burt Reynolds?

Tricia13 said...

He’s also Foreign Born and only ever been called a comic actor here.m(perm or former)
Unless there is an indie screen version/Canadian Adaptation of Hamlet that went under radar?

Jackie S said...

It’s Clooney. He and Rande Gerber (and another partner) founded Casamigos Tequila in 2013. They sold it to Diageo in 2017 but stayed on with the company. It was sold for $700 Million plus up to another $300 Million based on the brands performance over following decade. Their Distillery is in Jalisco, Mexico outside of Guadalajara.
Their biggest competition would be Jose Cuervo. Cuervo’s distillery is in Tequila, Mexico, also just outside of Guadalajara and a stones throw away from Jalisco. Would be easy to send employees from one to the other.
Neighboring country is the US
Some people will do anything for money. Guess the $700 Million wasn’t enough (if this is true).
However, Clooney will never go down for this IMO

JL said...

+1 Vita. Think the country next door is the big clue. Deaths in Dominican Relublic, which is next door to Haiti. They share the same island. So if Haiti, it is Penn.

ElCartero said...

Plus the distillery Crystal Head is made at is owned by the Newfoundland and Labrador liquor board, not by Aykroyd. They just contract production to it.

Cat Owner said...

This is not a thing that happened.

DaveDixter said...

Who Do Voodoo...?

Jack Rabbit said...

Any celeb whisky owners? I read that in at least a few cases in DR,the deaths came after drinking whiskey out of a mini bar in the room. I was thinking to myself that it would be very hard for some local yoko to poison those as they are sealed. This blind makes sense for a few reasons...whiskey has a barrel component and the mini-bar bottles being sealed means contamination happened wherever it's bottled.

Sd Auntie said...

well FBI is investigating so its just a matter of time.

What the actual f#ck!!!

SlimKeith said...

Not buying this blind. HushHush, people don't overnight from Ebola. That couple in FIji posted pics where they looked fine one day and then they were dead the next. Wish people wouldn't make up this BS that just scares people. I'm so sick of conpiracy theorists.

Vita said...

Jack Rabbit-- I just came to here to add the same thing! Scary stuff!

akbar johnson said...

The poison is Bigfoot piss mixed with Loch Ness Monster blood, impossible to detect!

KD said...

Throwing out the name of Sammy Hagar and thought he paired up with Adam Levine to invent a new tequila/ mezcal combo?

Jenn B. said...

Clooney, tequila, Patron, Mexico (next door country)

Within 30 of arriving in Santo Domingo, you will be told to NEVER go within 100 miles of the border of Haiti. Just beyond the luxurious all inclusive resort borders, is a dangerous place of desperation.

sandy2319 said...

@kiki71 I used to work in the business. I made friends with some people in the porn industry and well let me tell you they have the real dirt. After hearing what they had to say about the A listers and goings on I left HW and never looked back.
That who you need to befriend if you want to know what is going on just fyi.

Hanniam said...

@sandy2319: It’s a bit like the old adage about animals: if you want to know the character of a person, watch how they treat animals.

Sadly, that seems also to apply to porn stars and sex workers. I’ll bet they’ve got the most interesting stories.

I mean, two came out of the woodwork after a former hookup became president. You’d think that would be the category most likely to play it close to the vest, but no.

Aw, okay, waiting to be accused of TDS again. It’s not like it’s my fault the newspapers report disproportionately on POTUS’s peccadillos. I’m just a regular newspaper reading liberal, folks. Like, newspapers all over the world. I read broadly.

Including, to my occasional shame, CDAN.*

*No shame most of the time TBH, but enty really does have those icky moments.

akbar johnson said...

Wow, watching someone literally try to rationalize their dementia to themselves is fascinating. This guy just said he is a brainwashed robot but that's totally cool with him.

Hanniam said...

@akbar: That poor brainwashed fool. Must suck to be him.

I, on the other hand, just “literally” admitted to reading all kinds of news with different viewpoints from all over the world.*

*Including Fox, WSJ, and occasionally the Telegraph and even Breitbart.** Informed voters FTW.
**And the Daily Mail a little too much.***
***Which would be why these examples come so easily to mind, having appeared in the Mail’s News section instead of the Celeb section. They’re so embarrassingly clickable.****
****Also catering to a conservative-leaning base.

tl;dr Trump fans are really sensitive when you mention anything less than glowing that appeared in the news about him.

HouellebecqGurl said...

Press X to doubt on this whole BI, but I've been all over Central and South America and frankly NOTHING you could tell me would surprise me.
Last time, (the very last time ever), I was in the DR was only a 2 day thing on my way elsewhere. If you are going for business, I get it, but otherwise, you should NOT be there.
About 80% of the DR is some shit hole variant, from Omg red alert to mildly shit hole. The other 20% is resorts and very rich people. Resorts, no matter how luxe, still require you to get there via taxi or car service that can be very sketch and traveling off the resort is pretty stupid. Several days a week, there will be a huge influx of Haitians in the commercial areas near the Haitian border. DON'T GO THERE.
SERIOUSLY, DON'T.
That said, I don't find the DR to be quite as bad as Columbia,(hello, we've come to kidnap you. You will be robbed, possibly raped/beheaded, who can say?), Honduras, Guatemala, Brazil, vast portions of Mexico, etc., see Columbia.
I personally know someone who was kidnapped in Columbia, while visiting Columbian family there, and their car was riddled with hundreds of bullets. Seriously, just don't.
I would add that Jamaica and various other islands are somewhat the same, to varying degrees.
If you love beaches so much, go to Hawaii. Or fucking Florida.
You might meet with foul play, but the drug cartels don't fully control the entirety of either state and the vast majority of people speak English. For now, anyway.

Glue said...

Just saw on Twitter that Enty said it's NOT who we are mostly guessing, which is Clooney. So who is the other actor?

I have a list of celebrities who have Tequila companies and the only other actor is Dwayne, 'the Rock' Johnson and I don't see him doing something like this. He's genuinely a good guy. I know Timberlake has a company, but he's not an A list actor, unless I missed the part where he became A list?

Bruce Willis, Danny Devito and Dan Ackroyd also have alcohol companies, but I just can't fathom any of those guys being behind this...

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have a liquor company too, but not sure who is getting it in the divorce.

I'm at a loss if it's not Clooney.

Hanniam said...

@Glue Brad and Angie have a winery. That’s different than a distillery.

Does anyone have a stake in rum?

Michelle said...

Robert Dinero is involved with a Vodka company, and has been known for being pretty ruthless in his business dealings.
