In another reminder why most of the population is increasingly furious at the "elites", over the holiday weekend a 31-year-old portfolio manager for Moore Capital, Brett Barna, threw a wild “Wolf of Wall Street”-style Hamptons party, complete with Champagne, scores of bikini-clad women and costumed gun-toting midgets, and in the process trashed a $20 million mansion.
According to Page Six, Barna, "a portfolio manager at Louis Bacon’s Moore Capital Management, hosted the all-day “#Sprayathon” pool party on Sunday, where 1,000 people doused themselves in bubbly as rapper Ace Hood performed."
Making things more complicated is that Barna is not the owner of the 9-bedroom, 8 acre Hamptons mansion which "comes with tennis court, gym, outdoor pool & jacuzzi" where he celebrated US Independence Day in decadent style, and instead had rented it on AirBNB for $29,000, a fee he is now disputing.
Needless to say, the owner of the house is now quite angry: as Page Six reports, "the furious owner of the 14-bedroom estate in Bridgehampton plans to sue Barna, 31, for $1 million, saying the Wall Street hot shot had claimed the party would be a fundraiser for an animal charity for a mere 50 guests."
The owner, who asked to not be named, told Page Six that , “Brett came to me dropping Louis Bacon’s name and saying he was a big deal with the Robin Hood Foundation. He said there would be 50 people at the event and it was for animal rescue. But the only animals there were the people, a thousand of them. They drowned themselves in Champagne, they had midgets they threw in the pool, they broke into the house, trashed the furniture, art was stolen, we found used condoms. So many people were there that the concrete around the pool crumbled and fell into the water. It was like ‘Jersey Shore’ meets a frat party. We are preparing a massive lawsuit . . . We’re waiting to serve him."
"Brett was last seen on Sunday chugging Champagne with two midgets.”
Wild social media posts show partygoers dousing themselves in booze and dancing wildly.
The videos and photos below, capturing the festivities, will surely be Exhibit A-X in the upcoming lawsuit.
According to the publication, this is an annual bacchanal: Last year #Sprayathon revelers started a brush fire at a Hamptons manse owned by “Hercules” actor Kevin Sorbo.
Page Six adds that a rep for the embarrassed hedge fund didn’t comment, but a source said Moore raised $100,000 for Last Chance Animal Rescue, and they hired cleaners and left the house in good condition.
As CNBC adds this morning, Moore Capital said it has fired Barna. "Mr. [Brett] Barna's personal judgment was inconsistent with the firm's values," the company told CNBC in a statement.
"He is no longer employed by Moore Capital Management."
