Once a successful cryptocurrency YouTuber with a claimed business worth of $40 million, Ben Armstrong, also known as BitBoy, has seen his world come crashing down. His empire has collapsed, his friends have turned against him, and his wife has filed for divorce.
The downfall began in August when his friends and business partners ousted him from his company HIT Network. Since then, Armstrong has been accused of extortion, theft, sexual harassment, and workplace violence. His reputation and personal relationships have been greatly damaged.
His wife, Bethany Armstrong, filed for divorce in October after learning of his affair with a four-time divorcee. She has also hired a forensic accountant to investigate their finances.
Known for flaunting his wealth by wearing a green Gucci suit and driving a Lamborghini, Armstrong lost his sports car in a strange transaction with one of his former fans and an investor of his BEN cryptocurrency. This transaction resulted in a lawsuit where Armstrong claimed he was extorted. However, the judge ruled in favor of the new owner due to lack of evidence of payment.
The downfall of Armstrong’s business also had a negative impact on his personal life. His wife filed for divorce and his former business partners have accused him of inappropriate behavior at the office, including sexual harassment and throwing objects at employees.
Armstrong’s YouTube channel, which once had over 1 million subscribers, was taken over by what he claims to be a “criminal conspiracy” and “terrorists.” He also signed a contract worth $1 million a month with a gambling company, Stake.
Amidst all of this chaos, Armstrong has claimed to be going through a midlife crisis and a spiritual crisis. His once successful and extravagant lifestyle has come crashing down, and he is now facing the consequences of his actions.
