Holly Madison’s baby daddy, Pasquale Rotella might spend 13 years in jail over charges of bribery and embezzlement. Holly announced she was pregnant with her first child, a clear show of excitement on her part but she might not be able to spend it with the father of her baby.
38 year old Rotella is a party promoter and CEO of Insomniac Events. He was indicted in April for ‘channelling $2.5 million from an event venue to city officials in the form of personal payments.’
Court documents showed that more than $2.5 million of Coliseum money was ‘rerouted to the personal accounts of Coliseum Events Manager Todd DeStefano and General Manager Patrick Lynch via back-room deals.’
Rotella, alongside others have been charged on 29 counts of bribery, embezzlement, conspiracy and conflict of interest. He was released on $1.2 million bail.
If found guilty, Rotella faces 13 years and eight months in jail. He has said he is innocent through lawyer who is representing him, Gary Kaufman.
He is due back in court on September 25.
He tweeted a picture of him with a baby bump saying, “Yes the rumors are true.” He added saying, “My better half and I really appreciate all the love and congratulations! Thank you! We can’t wait to meet our beautiful baby.”
The two love birds have been dating for nine months. “I’ve always wanted to be a mom,” Holly told Us Weekly. “But I thought it would take longer!”
Holly is 12 weeks pregnant. Congratulations are in order.
