Daniel Negreanu Blackmailed Over Secret Family Claims
Things getting crazier.
In tomorrow’s vlog you will hear audio of a man trying to extort/blackmail me, claiming I used to live in Havasu Lake and abandoned a secret family to move to Las Vegas.
He said he will keep quiet if I pay him off pic.twitter.com/HljYMS3Xru

Here the audio and voicemail here:
It’s been a crazy few months for poker. The high-stakes cheating scandal included details of Bryn Kenney sending his stable members to see a shaman who wanted to administer frog poison.
Then Negreanu considered employing a bodyguard after being accosted by a woman at the WSOP who didn’t appear in her right mind.
Now we have random tales of blackmail over a supposed secret life Daniel Negreanu left behind. You couldn’t make this stuff up.
Daniel Negreanu Considers Hiring a Bodyguard
Daniel Negreanu is now considering whether or not to hire a bodyguard after a strange incident during a break in play during the 2022 WSOP.
His wife Amanda is said to be unnerved at the behaviour of a woman called Sara Palmer who accused Negreanu of chasing after her while streaming for his vlog.
Settle a debate with @RadioAmanda
If you were me at the WSOP do you think it would be worthwhile to have a bodyguard?

Palmer later tweeted that Negreanu locked his wife up in the house for two years while the COVID-19 pandemic was ongoing and then accused him of hitting on her.
Spent 2hrs @WSOP for 1st time. Everything looks awesome! ♠️😎
Leaving Paris, I felt someone getting closer & brush against me (PLENTY of room)
WTF @RealKidPoker FOLLOWING me with a sense of urgency! While streaming. (Nobody streams while speed walking & NOT on a break)
