Ethan Klein reveals agency that allegedly stole $600k has paid him back
H3H3’s Ethan Klein has finally been paid back after BBTV, an agency he signed with, allegedly stole $600,000 from him over the course of several years.
Ethan Klein is a prominent content creator who has been through the legal wringer several times over the course of his career on YouTube.
In 2017, he and wife Hila Klein underwent a highly-publicized battle over copyright infringement, in which they ultimately came out on top.
Years later, the couple faced a lawsuit from Triller after showing footage from Jake Paul’s boxing match against Ben Askren on a podcast episode — a battle they also ended up winning.
Now, yet another major victory has happened for Ethan and the H3H3 crew after an MCN he used purportedly stole over half a million dollars from him over the course of several years.
On April 8, Klein uploaded a video claiming that BBTV, a management company he’d signed with, had purportedly stolen $620,000 from him… and he was worried he wouldn’t get paid back.
“My fear is that they don’t have the money and that these guys are on the verge of declaring bankruptcy,” he expressed in the video. “I’ve been reading over the contract and my remedies are not that much. I could unlink immediately without giving a 30-day notice if I was afraid that they were going to go bankrupt.”
He even claimed that, as punishment for terminating his contract with the agency, he’d likely have to pay back his $10,000 signing bonus — something he was happy to do if it came down to it.
