Bill Perkins and Dan Bilzerian accused Jean-Robert Bellande (JRB) of cheating in a high-stakes home game that the latter hosts, pointing out the highly suspicious fact that JRB also backed 50% of two or more players at the table. This comes even though JRB himself lost over $400,000 that week.
The infamous Instagram star Dan Bilzerian accused Daniel "Jungleman" Cates of ‘ghosting' along with Sina Taleb in a high-stakes poker game hosted by Bill Perkins.
It all started this sunny morning of Sunday, May 24, when Bill Perkins shook Twitter with a highly interesting story, that a major cheating scandal has occurred, one he believes would make the Mike Postle scandal look trivial in comparison, as this scandal involved famous ‘heroes' of the poker world. However, he did not say exactly who it was.
Even though Dan Bilzerian may have taken some flak subsequently after the shooting massacre in Las Vegas, he may be getting some additional cover from the criticisms laid against him thanks to the latest release of a video footage he took from that fateful Sunday night.
On a Youtube video published September 20 Wednesday entitled ‘In Depth with Graham Bensinger', social media star Dan Bilzerian revealed to sports journalist Graham Bensinger that different from what most people assume, he made his own money via poker and he is not spending his inheritance doing so.

On Monday (April 25), Brian Rast was challenged to repeat Bilzerian's cycling prop bet - he stands to win $600,000 from Bilzerian and Perkins, while only needing to shell out $100,000 of his own money should he fail.

In earlier news, high-stakes poker player Dan Bilzerian originally was risking his $600,000 on a biking bet starting from LA (his home) to Las Vegas (Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign in Nevada), but now he could also end up losing his private jet if he fails to complete the circuit.

It seems like Dan Bilzerian is finding it hard to stay out of trouble in the past week or so. Last weekend, he made headlines after allegedly kicking a women in the face at a nightclub in Miami. On Wednesday, he was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport on suspicion of possessing or manufacturing illegal explosive devices.

Twitter and Instagram sensation Dan Bilzerian might have gotten himself in some trouble after a wild party in Miami last weekend.

Celebrity and gossip site The Dirty claims that this video shows Bilzerian kicking a women in the face. The victim, who has remained anonymous, said that she would take legal action. Bilzerian has so far not commented on the incident.
How did it go? Well, not so good as the naked women, 19-year-old Porn Star Janice Griffith, ended up breaking her foot against the side of the pool. Bilzerian probably could have been more careful, but on the other hand Griffith should not have grabbed Bilzerian's t-shirt during "take off".
