Dan Bilzerian is a bearded trust-fund baby who has made his mark on Instagram—garnering over 6 million followers and growing every day—by regularly uploading photos of him surrounded by bare-breasted women and fast cars.
He lives a lifestyle that most can only relish in, and his new profile in GQ only furthers that.
Here’s what we learned from it.
1. Every room in his house is full of loaded guns casually sitting around
“My greatest fear is that someone will break in and I won’t be able to decide what gun to shoot them with,” he once tweeted.
“There are guns lying around casually in literally every room in his house,” as Jonathan Grotenstein, a poker player and senior “All In” magazine contributor, said to “GQ.”
“Before you walk in, his security guard takes you aside and warns you not to touch them, because they’re all chambered and loaded. You look at the guns, and you look at all these women coming and going… and it’s hard not to wonder how it’s all going to end.”
2. He may get sued for throwing that naked porn star off the roof
Hustler Magazine arranged for Bilzerian to throw a naked porn star off the roof of his house into his pool, and when he went to toss her off the roof, she grabbed onto his shirt at the last second, causing her to break her foot on the edge of the pool when she landed.
But when her lawyer threatened to sue, Bilzerian had a simple response.
“Like your client, the facts of the claim won’t, quite, fly.”
3. His father went to prison
Bilzerian grew up in an 11-bedroom mansion in Florida, complete with its own indoor basketball court, batting cage, lake-front views, swimming pool and water slide. And Bilzerian’s dad, who fought in Vietnam, was just as outrageous as he is, and once sued Dan’s Little League baseball team for $5,000 alleging slander.
“Basically I didn’t get a ton of attention as a kid,” Bilzerian said. “I guess that’s why I’m such a flashy lunatic.”
When Bilzerian was 10, his dad told him on the drive to school that he was going to prison for nine counts of stock and tax fraud.
4. He invested $1 million in “Lone Survivor”
“When he invested $1m in the Mark Wahlberg war film “Lone Survivor,” for example, it was conditional upon him getting at least eight minutes of screen time and 80 words of dialogue. When his role was cut to almost nothing, he sued.”
Bilzerian eventually dropped the suit after the movie’s success, which he claims earned him $1.5 million back.
5. He’s rich, and he doesn’t “give a fuck”
Okay, this attitude was probably pretty obvious, but GQ notes that Bilzerian has quieted down recently. He now donates to charities, and he took “asshole” off his Twitter bio. He also declined to be interviewed for the profile.
But a text message exchange between Bilzerian and his social media manager shows he hasn’t changed too much. When Greg Baroth complained about his behavior, he didn’t give in.
“Oh well,” wrote Bilzerian, before posting an image of himself on a yellow life raft, being carried through a crowded nightclub with a naked woman in Christian Louboutins lying face-down next to him.
“Good thing I’m rich and I don’t give a fuck.” (RELATED: Ladies, Guns And Cars: The Life Of Instagram’s Biggest Playboy)
