‘I Do Love Him – Screw Everyone’: Journalist Quits & Marries Pharma Bro Martin Shkreli STILL Protects Him After Dumping!
What. The. Effort.
You guys remember Martin Shkreli? Speculative sponsor bought the rights to a much needed AIDS drug and raised the price by more than 5,000% ?? The so-called “Pharma Bro” has been stuck as one of society’s most objectively horrible people for a few years, eventually being convicted in 2017 for fraud unrelated to the original price hike. that head. Shocking that someone would gouge the price of life-saving drugs for vulnerable people would ALSO get around the law, wouldn’t it?
Anyhoo, a few years ago he appeared in the news AGAIN when a Bloomberg The journalist covered the FELL IN LOVE story with him, confirming in December 2020 that she had left her marriage and job to date a federal prisoner. Then he to pour her not long after she gave the interview Elle about it. And then she gave an interview about that.

That should have been the end of Christie Smythe15 minutes of fame, right?
Well, for some reason she kept talk about it. She is slowly self-publishing a memoir about this relationship, which is short-lived though it may be, on Substacks. It is called SMIRK. And over the weekend, she gave another celebrity interview about this relationship. Overflowing Sunday Times about the unusual situation, she admitted:
“I don’t think I was attracted to him initially. Yes, maybe. It was more of a curiosity. I didn’t think of him as a romantic subject. “
No, she’s a consummate professional. But the absolute magnetism of animals do eventually causing her to leave her chaebol husband and give up her journalistic integrity to date him. She recalls:
“I felt extremely frustrated having to keep bottling everything up. I was just, like, ‘What is everyone worried about? That I would love him? ‘ After that thought sank in, I said, ‘You know what, maybe I love him – enchanting everyone.’
Right! Dating regardless, always a great philosophy! Don’t let anyone tell YOU not to date a horrible vulture who makes money exploiting sick people’s vulnerabilities! Believe in yourself! You can do anything! LOL – League of Legends!
Of course, she chooses to see the good in Shkreli, saying he takes her writing career very seriously, which is “very flattering”. She said while she wasn’t allowed to have sex with him – he was, of course, in jail their entire relationship – they had great conversations about “books, science, pharmaceuticals, crypto, family, hopes and dreams.”
It is impossible not to notice that “cryptocurrency” precedes “family” and “hopes and dreams”. Electric shock machine. She told the newspaper:
“We were never embarrassed by anything to say. We always make each other laugh. “
Things really took a turn when the pandemic hit – and she couldn’t visit him anymore. She does it by telling Elle relationship – and the direct result is bankruptcy. A man’s cartoon little villain actually broke up with her by his comments to the magazine in their profile, saying through a rep:
“Mr Shkreli wishes Mrs Smythe the best of luck in the future.”
Even so, she continued – and continue – defend him!
Recently, on Monday afternoon on social media, she erupted in criticism about the relationship and her latest interview – which she gave despite now having a new boyfriend. . Well, she went on and but… refused to continue? We guess she’s in the camp where saying no press is bad press? Hey, at least we can understand that part.

She really became a total martyr on Twitter despite this, says the attacks on her choice are showing a lack of empathy for inmates and their loved ones. She writes:
“’WHY does she keep telling this crazy story?’
Well, there’s a good reason: There are millions of people with loved ones in prison who face stigma, abuse, and all kinds of negativity just for the sake of caring for someone who has committed a crime. Wrong. Dots.”
She then added:
“And just to add: If you’re trying to say my situation is ‘unique’ and unlike all the others… no, it’s not. Every story of someone with a loved one in prison is messy, complex, and unique in its own right. These are all compelling, individual HUMAN stories.”
LOLz, she literally interviewed him because about what he did. She enters, eyes wide open, with the background that this is someone who is harming the world. And she wanted to act like he was Jean Valjean. OK. You continue to be friends. Good luck with your new relationship.
