Pearl Jam manager guilty of stealing money
Oh boy! This is not a good Christmas gift of alt rockers Pearl Jam's manager, Rickey Charles Goodrich. Digital Spy reports Pearl Jam's former manager Rickey Charles Goodrich has admitted to stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the band. Charges have been filed against Goodrich, with prosecutors accusing him of stealing $380,000 (R3924467.17 ZAR) in the four years that he served as chief financial officer for Pearl Jam's management company Curtis Management. According to the Seattle Weekly, Pearl Jam hired a private detective to investigate Goodrich, revealing that he had made several wire transfers from their account in order to pay off his own debts. Pearl Jam have not commented publicly on the case, which has been on-going since Goodrich was prosecuted in June.
