According to the late Kevin Samuels’ friend, he died a broke man, heavily indebted with less than $1K in his bank account, and his family is planning to set up a GoFundMe account to give him a befitting funeral.
This is shocking if true. What was Kevin Samuels doing with all the money he was making from YouTube? This is unbelievable and I hope he left some money somewhere.
MTO News has details;
Now we have some more tea about Kevin who often described himself as a “high value man” and said that women would need to meet a high bar in order to get a man in his category. But it turns out that Kevin Samuels may have been BROKE!!
Media Take Out spoke with one of Kevin’s friends, who has been in touch with his family and he claims that Kevin was “deeply” in debt. According to the friend, Kevin’s family has been trying to identify all his assets and has only been able to locate less than $1,000.
Kevin Samuels was a popular Black online image consultant and widely credited with coining the phrase “high value man.” The term high-value man as it is commonly used today refers to a man of financial means and social influence. The term alone isn’t new or problematic in that society has always placed a higher value on wealthy men.
But Kevin often used the term “high value man” to troll Black women into believing that they didn’t have what it took to get a man in that category.
We spoke to a person close to Kevin and his family – and he told us that Kevin was ANYTHING BUT high value.
Kevin’s friend explained, “Kevin had a lot of debt, especially credit card debt and he didn’t have a lot of money coming in.” The friend told us that Kevin’s family has only been able to locate “less than $1,000” in his accounts.
The friend also told us that the family is contemplating setting up a GoFundMeto raise money to give the “high value man” a proper funeral.
You never really know what is going on with social media celebrities. Samuels was staying in a nice apartment and wasn’t behind on his rent. As of now, no one is saying that he owed them any money or he was behind in any bills. Just because the family can’t locate his money, doesn’t mean there isn’t any money there. We will see how this gets sorted out.
