US company Will Packer Productions, and Mo Abudu’s EbonyLife Studios have acquired rights to make a movie based on Bloomberg’s article on fraudster Ramon Abbas aka Hushpuppi.
In June 2020, INTERPOL allegedly arrested Hushpuppi for scamming and laundering money of over $100million. This fund was meant for Native Americans during the Corona Virus Pandemic.
Known for his lavish lifestyle on social media, Hushpuppi flies on private jets to exotic holiday locations. He also buys luxury brands such as Gucci, Fendi, and Balenciaga directly from their stores whenever he travels.
Arraigned and detained at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in Chicago ahead of his trial, the socialite recently pleaded guilty to the money laundering charges against him, which can earn him 20 years in jail.
