According to TMZ
, Mayer may actually have over $465,000 in dirty money.
This all goes back to earlier this year, when a man by the name of Darren Berg was sentenced to 18 years in jail for running a Ponzi scheme. Berg bilked over $100 million from investors. According to legal documents, Mayer was one of the people who received dirty money from Berg's company.
According to New York Daily
, Mayer received the funds from Grabow & Associates, a booking agency. The agency worked with Mayer and they were the ones who reportedly paid Mayer with the dirty money.
According to Daily Mail
, the booking agency paid Mayer for an appearance back in 2008.
Mayer's lawyer spoke out and said that the singer did indeed perform at a corporate event back in 2008 and the booking agency did pay Mayer for his services.
Trustees are now suing people who they believed received funds from Berg's company, and they are still in the process of finding more people.
