Today's Blind Items - Celebrity Money Laundering

There is no doubt this massive monopoly launders money. It is one of the largest money laundering operations on the planet. It also isn't just for criminals, although, they do make up the vast majority of the people who use it. The crazy thing is banks are involved it which seems odd, considering the front of the business. It is a very murky world of companies and fronts and shell companies, but every single one of you reading this, knows its most famous brand. You may not have watched their content, but you know who it is, and this is not about Netflix. The murkiness of this company's business practices have long been known. The money laundering is a fairly recent turn of events. The origins of the money used to swallow up competitors around the world was facilitated by the dead billionaire, which, if you think about it, makes a lot of sense he would want to be involved.

Anyway, there is a new offshoot of this company that is supposed to empower women. It even portends to have a woman running the operation. It doesn't. All it does do is to add another layer of murkiness to the company and another outlet to launder even more money while pretending it is an advocate for change by making micro donations to charities and causes. Because of the empowerment message, a group of celebrities including a rapper who is best friends with the north of the border one namer who had a recent life event get paid to say nice things about the company. The celebrity significant other of this long time network star of a long long running network show is also a big supporter. The list is endless, but all they are doing is helping to legitimize the laundering of criminal proceeds or money being hidden from the taxing authorities. It is the new version of the Panama Papers.
