Wanted: Delfin Justiniano “DJ” MontanoApril 10, 2008
If you see him, please tell him Brian Gorrel wants his money back.
Brian, btw, is DJ’s ex. He is accusing DJ of stealing his $70,000. In fact, his blog is dedicated to that end.
That said blog has also garnered 2,000,000 views in just about a month of being put in operation, and it’s not because of his writing style. You would have to go the site for you to know what I mean. Writing about Delfin, IMO, is the main reason for his success. It’s a typical lover-gets-swindled-story that wouldn’t elicit more than a second of pity if it hadn’t had a more tangible flavor to it.
What’s different about his case is that some members of Philippine high society get to be included in the fray. They are portrayed as hedonistic, power hungry, apathetic lowlifes among whom are those who are not even rich (Delfin included in this category), but who all leach the benefits that all Filipinos should get. He even accuses some of them of murder and assassinations. Apparently, they are not amused. Brian is accusing them of instigating media, the Philippine legal process, and even Google to get him to shut up. Btw, he also claims that Google may close his site down because of this.
He, however, has made it clear that he will close his blog if Delfin pays him back. So you better check out his site soon. Either, Google pushes him down or Delfin gets a change of heart and finances and decide to pay him back, and his blog is closed down; and you wouldn’t have a first hand look at what the fuss is all about.
