RIKKI ROCKETT DENIES FINANCIAL CRISIS:
February 5, 2009
Poison drummer Rikki Rockett has blasted reports he is facing a financial crisis – following a spate of rumors about his recent decision to sell an expensive watch over the internet.
Rockett announced he is selling off a valuable Rolex timepiece on auction website eBay – prompting internet gossips to speculate about his monetary situation. But the musician has hit back at claims he is close to financial ruin – insisting he is not selling his possessions to pay off any debts.
He posted on his Myspace Page, “I decided to sell my 2006 Rolex because I haven’t worn it even once since I got the new one. Besides, I’d prefer to set some of the memories attached to the watch aside. ‘Toss it up on eBay,’ everyone kept telling me. Fine, so I did. Now I’m all over the c*@p press with people saying like, ‘Oh, he must be broke!’ and bulls#*t like that.”
“Do I have to be on the skids (poor) to sell something? Do I have to keep everything I ever bought or in the public eye I’m going broke? Geez! I’m far from broke, ya fuckin’ douche bags! I’m just unloading a watch because I ain’t wearin’ the fuckin’ thing!”
