Many people don't realize that PTSD (Post traumatic stress syndrome) isn't just something that affects soldiers in battle.

The daily struggle to maintain high standards and Michelin stars is just as hard on the physchie as real combat can be.

Turns out he was a victim of a Ponzi scheme.

He purchased rare bottles of wine that could cost up to $30,000.00 per bottle.

He gave the money upfront but never received the wine.

The company that did this deceived several others and resold the wine many times over.

 

One can only assume, among other things that he was very much in debt.
