Is Rudy Giuliani broke? NYC ex-mayor is available on Cameo for $275, trolls say join OnlyFans
Rudy Giuliani may no longer be a lawyer in New York City, but he's still available for hire. On August 10, the former NYC Mayor announced he was now on Cameo, the celebrity site that allows fans to connect with their favorite stars. You can now hire him to make a personalized video, which went about as well as you would expect. No sooner than he made the announcement on Twitter, users quickly trolled Giuliani with a variety of hilarious, and offensive requests.
The embattled lawyer is currently facing a massive cash crunch. In June, he had his law license suspended in New York for "false statements to courts and public," when he was Trump's lawyer. The move meant he is now left without any income and massive debts to settle. Reportedly, former President Donald Trump owes Giuliani a lot but has only paid the $200,000 in expenses he racked up. In January, we reported that Trump reportedly told his staff not to pay Giuliani's fees, sparking rumors they ended their friendship.
For Trump, it doesn't matter if Giuliani doesn't get paid, but it appears the former Mayor desperately needs the cash. He's currently facing a $1.3b lawsuit by Dominion over claims of fraud, which will go ahead after the judge tossed a motion to quash the suit. So is it a case of desperate times, desperate measures? It certainly seems to be. Giuliani is now taking requests on Cameo, but it will set you back $275 per request.
Is Rudy Giuliani broke?
By all indications, that certainly appears to be the case. In early August, HuffPost reported that Giuliani is "currently struggling under a mountain of legal fees," thanks to the Dominion lawsuit. The situation is reportedly thanks to the former President, who refused to shell out Giuliani's fees of $20,000 a day. It's unclear how much Trump owes, but it could be as much as a million, given Giuliani has been his lawyer for well over a year before he cut him off.
Unable to practice law in New York or Washington DC, and widely seen as a danger, Giuliani's law career also appears to be over. After all, even Trump wants nothing to do with him. To add to his woes, Giuliani is also facing an investigation by the FBI, over his activities tied to Ukraine. Nonetheless, he's continued to attack the 2020 election results, and the Joe Biden administration. "I am more than willing to go to jail if they want to put me in jail. And if they do, they’re going to suffer the consequences in heaven," he famously declared after his offices were raided by the FBI.
It's a massive fall from grace for the man that was once dubbed 'America's Mayor'. However, it doesn't seem like Giuliani is completely broke just yet. Thanks to his years of law practice, income from businesses and other areas, he has an estimated net worth of around $45m. Worst case, he could sell off one of his three properties to fiance his fight against Dominion. With that kind of net worth, it's unclear why Giuliani is on Cameo, it appears to be an effort to remain relevant amongst supporters.
'How much would you charge to confess everything?'
If he was hoping for some genuine requests though, Giuliani might be a bit disappointed. His Twitter announcement was met with much excitement, but not from fans. Instead, many people took it as a golden opportunity to troll him, tweeting odd requests in response. One user said, "My video request... One last thing...can you also do the video with your hand down your pants like you did in Borat? Thanks #RudyColludy...that would be great." Another trolled, "Can I get a personalized message for a good buddy of mine? His screen name is "BuyDen1". If I get confirmation that this is possible, I'll get a video."

"You know there is also OnlyFans. I’m sure lots of people would pay to see you naked," one person trolled. Another commented the move was "The social media equivalent of standing on the corner, cup in hand, asking passersby for spare change." One person asked, "How much would you charge to confess everything?"

"Wow! There hasn't been a fall this ironically tragic since Oedipus," one user tweeted. Another noted, "Dude, no amount of cameo funds will cover your upcoming legal defense tab."

Since Cameo requests are private, it's unclear if anyone has actually requested a confession from Giuliani. At the time of reporting, there were three five-star reviews on his profile, which appear to be from fans. Given that a request costs $275, most people will have to be content with tweeting out their fantasies but don't be surprised if you find a really motivated troll in the coming days.
