A new report from The Guardian claims that gay alt-right troll Milo Yiannopoulos was more than $2 million in debt during 2018. The publication cites a collection of documents assembled by his former Australian tour promoters.

Creditors listed in the docs include employees for his company, a wedding venue and his former sponsors, the billionaire Mercery family, according to The Guardian.

The newspaper writes:

The documents indicate that as of April 2018, Yiannopoulos owed $1.6m to his own company, $400,000 to the Mercers, $153,215 to his former lawyers, $76,574 to former collaborator and Breitbart writer Allum Bokhari, and $20,000 to the luxury jewelry brand Cartier.

As of 2 October, Yiannopoulos owed sums of several thousand dollars to far-right writers including Ian Miles Cheong, anti-Islamic ideologue Pamela Geller and science fiction writer Theodore Beale, aka Vox Day, the documents indicate, amongst others.

They were published on the website of an Australian far-right figure and United Patriots Front member, Neil Erikson, infamous for subjecting the former senator Sam Dastyari to a torrent of racial abuse in a Sydney pub.


Yiannopoulos spoke with The Guardian about the report, saying in an email that the documents referred to "company debts, not personal."

"I'm doing fine and bringing in $40k US a month," he said.
