A couple articles have the couple claiming that he was using drugs again but Facebook show Lavish vacations helicopters rides and there’s even reports that they have a new BMW which will definitely make you question their claims. If you dont recall it was this story. The couple said they would get him a house, trust funds, a vehicle etc. and seem to have doubled back on their word. they sold his camper and vehicle and havent given him one cent from the sale and kicked him from the property now he is taking legal action.
Johnny Bobbitt, the homeless veteran who gained worldwide attention when he used his last $20 to fill up the gas tank of a stranded motorist, reportedly took legal action Tuesday against the couple that raised $400,000 for him on GoFundMe.
A lawyer for Bobbitt filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction to stop Mark D’Amico and Kate McClure — the motorist he helped — from using any leftover money from the fundraising campaign, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
Bobbitt told the Inquirer earlier that he can’t use the $200,000 left out of the $400,000 that donors raised on GoFundMe, and he no longer has a camper or a car.
Bobbitt alleged in the injunction that McClure and D’Amico committed fraud and considered the GoFundMe account “as their personal piggy bank.”
McClure and D’Amico did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the legal action, the paper reported.
McClure told the paper in an earlier interview that they did all they could to help Bobbitt.
The couple and Bobbitt once had a warm relationship. In an earlier interview with the Inquirer, D’Amico said he controls the money and will start dispensing it when Bobbitt gets a job and stops using drugs.
“Giving him all that money, it’s never going to happen. I’ll burn it in front of him,” he said, adding that giving an “addict” the money would be like “giving him a loaded gun.”
The couple did make an appearance to explain their side of the story.
