• Ted DiBiase’s Family Is Being Sued For Millions In Financial Mismanagement Lawsuit
WWE Hall of Famer “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase Sr.’s son, Brett DiBiase (former WWE Developmental Wrestler), was arrested in a multi-million dollar public embezzlement case in Mississippi in 2020.
Mississippi’s Department of Human Services is now suing the whole DiBiase family for alleged financial mismanagement.
The Department of Human Services paid Brett $48,000 as a representative of a company called ‘Restore2’. He received the payment using false & fraudulent representations.
The Mississippi Community Education Center paid former WWE World Tag Team Champion Ted DiBiase Jr. to provide training to human services staff in 2018 & 2019, but he made ‘no substantial attempt’ to deliver any training he was contracted to give.
DiBiase Sr. is being accused of defrauding the state in welfare payments of about $2.1 million through his religious non-profit Heart of David Ministries.
The lawsuit claims DiBiase Jr. persuaded then-Mississippi Department of Human Services Director John Davis to funnel $1.7 million to Heart of David Ministries.
In the end, DiBiase Sr. owes the state of Mississippi $1,971,223 in damages. Heart of David Ministries owes the state $1,721,223 in damages. DiBiase Jr. is being sued for $2,897,487, Restore2 is being sued for $48,000 and Brett is being sued for $824,258.
