Welfare Funds Directed To Ex-WWE Star Ted DiBiase Jr.
A former nonprofit operator has been charged after directing over $1 million to companies owner by Ted DiBiase Jr.
There have been ongoing investigations in to funding from nonprofit organisations, and the DiBiase family has already been involved. Back in December 2020, Brett DiBiase pleaded guilty on charges related to Temporary Assistance For Needy Families funds. Now, it would seem his brother Ted has been found to receive similar funds.
According to a report from The Mississippi Free Press, nearly $1.1 million was directed to companies owned by Ted DiBiase Jr. by former Tupelo nonprofit operator Christi Webb, who also pleaded guilty in court on 16th March. DiBiase has not been charged with any crime.
The report explained Webb’s position and the funding she had access to.
Until stepping down last week, Webb was the executive director of the Family Resource Center of North Mississippi, a nonprofit that handled millions in federal funds in coordination with the Mississippi Department of Human Services. The federal dollars included Temporary Assistance For Needy Families funds, which are meant to help poor families with children, and The Emergency Food Assistance Program funds, which provides nutrition assistance to families in need.
Ted DiBiase Jr. is the son of WWE Hall Of Famer ‘The Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase. The 40 year old’s WWE run ran from 2008 to 2013, and in that time he became a two-time Tag Team Champion alongside Cody Rhodes, as well as holding his father’s legendary Million Dollar Championship.
