Inheriting a fortune from a relative who made billions of dollars breaking their back appears to be harder than one would think (that is if you are Brandon Davis).
Brandon is the grandson to the former billionaire Marvin Davis. Marvin made his fortune by drilling for oil and natural gas in the Rocky Mountains. After accumulating his riches from the energy industry, Marvin diversified his money into real estate with the acquisition of prominent properties such as the Beverly Hills Hotel and the Pebble Beach resort.
This accumulation of wealth eventually led to Marvin purchasing 20th Century Fox in the early 1980s, and selling it shortly after to Rupert Murdoch for a nice profit. Marvin died in 2004, leaving his legacy and fortune to his wife, children, and grandchildren.
This is where Brandon enters the spotlight. Having never achieved anything worthwhile in his life, Brandon has felt entitled to greatness and stardom simply from the fact that his family had money. This is the only logical explanation for the obnoxious behavior, child-like outbursts, and complete lack of respect for everyone around him. For example, last year Brandon was riding in a car with Paris Hilton when the paparazzi caught up with them, and asked Brandon about Lindsay Lohan. Brandon responded with, “Lindsay, who is she? I think she is only worth like 7 million dollars. That means she is really poor. Its disgusting.”
Another example of Brandon’s behavior would have to be his gambling problems. Reporter Janet Charlton claims that the Bahamian Atlantis Paradise Resort is suing Brandon Davis for bouncing checks in the casino there back in January (over $75,000 in debt). The Hard Rock Hotel also sued Brandon for $250,000 in unpaid gambling debts, but he was able to weasel his way out of paying by claiming that he was underage at the time.
None of this even touches the racial slurs that Brandon recently made at Paula Abdul over her Arab roots at Paris Hilton’s birthday party. All of this ridiculous behavior begs the question, is Brandon Davis the biggest loser in Hollywood?
