Six months before ''GTA IV'' is set, he suddenly became very wealthy. Currently, he lives in one of three (or more) luxury homes - a [[Leftwood]] mansion with a helipad, a luxury mansion in [[Vinewood (HD Universe)|Vinewood]], [[Los Santos (HD Universe)|Los Santos]] with a parked [[Shamal|Shamal (a private jet)]] outside, and the glass penthouse of [[Harborside Plaza 10]] in [[Alderney City]], fitted with a glass elevator which has a glass jacuzzi inside as seen in the show [[I'm Rich]] on [[CNT]]. He hires strippers to meditate inside his home, "to remind people just how rich he really is!". He likes to get back at his bullies by purchasing the companies they work at and firing them, doing the same thing to everyone at an amusement park when he wasn't tall enough to ride a roller-coaster. He owns fifteen nearly-identical [[Infernus]] sports cars all monogrammed with the logo that he spent $15 million developing only for his personal use. It reads "TMT" (possibly inspired by Tony Montana's logo in Scarface, and jokingly reminiscent of the McDonalds logo) and the reason he fits everything from gold rims to buildings and even his own condoms with his logo is because he believes "Bitches love initials". He is also sometimes pictured with an entire fleet of [[Patriot]]s, a red [[Cavalcade]], a powerboat on the water, or a helicopter. In [[2008]], he was discussed on a mock television show [[Fizz!]], in which he was shown outside [[Bahama Mamas LC|Bahama Mamas]] stepping out of a [[Super Diamond]] followed by an entire parade of scandily-clad dancing women.

Six months before GTA IV is set, he suddenly became very wealthy. Currently, he lives in one of three (or more) luxury homes - a Leftwood mansion with a helipad, a luxury mansion in Vinewood, Los Santos with a parked Shamal (a private jet) outside, and the glass penthouse of Harborside Plaza 10 in Alderney City, fitted with a glass elevator which has a glass jacuzzi inside as seen in the show I'm Rich on CNT. He hires strippers to meditate inside his home, "to remind people just how rich he really is!". He likes to get back at his bullies by purchasing the companies they work at and firing them, doing the same thing to everyone at an amusement park when he wasn't tall enough to ride a roller-coaster. He owns fifteen nearly-identical Infernus sports cars all monogrammed with the logo that he spent $15 million developing only for his personal use. It reads "TMT" (possibly inspired by Tony Montana's logo in Scarface, and jokingly reminiscent of the McDonalds logo) and the reason he fits everything from gold rims to buildings and even his own condoms with his logo is because he believes "Bitches love initials". He is also sometimes pictured with an entire fleet of Patriots, a red Cavalcade, a powerboat on the water, or a helicopter. In 2008, he was discussed on a mock television show Fizz!, in which he was shown outside Bahama Mamas stepping out of a Super Diamond followed by an entire parade of scandily-clad dancing women.
