We gave Philakone several chances to speak to us and find a way to clear the air and soften the blow of what we are about to tell you. We DM’d him, spoke to some of his (now former) associates, emailed, and even attempted to text him. While he did engage with a couple of ‘middle of the night’ DM’s two days ago, he has simply either refused to clear the air or is continuing to lose the battle with substance abuse.
**A quick note. Substance abuse is a disease and a sickness. It is not a laughing matter in any way shape or form. What Philakone is going through, the actions that he is taking, are headed to an even darker moment that we hope he doesn’t reach. Many of his former associates are very, very worried about him.**
PHILAKONE IS A FORMER DRUG DEALER
We are awaiting the Manitoba report that reveals that Philakone was arrested nearly two weeks ago and spent almost 9 days in jail. Why did this happen, and why was he arrested? Philakone is a former drug dealer in Winnipeg and is constantly under the watchful eye of authorities there. They are constantly monitoring his communications, his live streams, his YouTube messages – and become alarmed and very suspicious when he began to flash significant amounts of cash via messages in Discord and via DM’s on Twitter.
Still, he continues down a path that is about self-harm, narcissistic, hurtful to himself and those around him, and that ultimately put him in jail last week and the week before.
OFFICIAL PAPERWORK FROM POLICE PENDING
We are waiting on a copy of the official paperwork from Manitoba police, but have four different sources that have confirmed to us that Philakone was picked up for suspicion of money laundering and drug distribution. He made a court appearance, posted bail, and will await his hearing in a couple of months.
His lack of activity in the crypto space over the past 17 days left many with all sorts of questions. We now know that Philakone was behind bars and trying to find a way to communicate with his followers in any way that he could.
He revealed his incarceration first to @sirPatec (who has since deleted his account after being viciously threatened by Philakone upon his release from prison) in a Discord chat and call several days ago.
A quick screenshot:
Philakone has also burned nearly every bridge that attempted to build itself around him. Those that have attempted to reach out to him and help him extricate himself from his drug addiction.
Here is a screenshot of his relationship with a former friend blowing up:
There is much, much more to this story that we will release later this evening. We are fielding dozens of DM’s right now and gathering the information to make sure it is released responsibly.
One issue that we want to make clear. There have been several individuals that were brought into the tangled web that Philakone weaved and are the worse for it and wish they had never gotten remotely close to the guy. Go easy on them. Twitter can be fraught with good intentions that are met with voracity and bad deeds. Philakone is a drug-addicted disaster that is mere moments from imploding,
***this has a very Zeke Echelon feel to it…who is still nowhere to be found. Once revealed to be a fraud, he disappeared. Now Philakone is claiming to disappear.
