Dan linked to an article yesterday with some history of Tom Gores’ family and business ties. It went over well. But the internet is a big place, so today I’ll link as many articles I can find about the man who may or may not be the next Pistons owner.
I’m no A.J. Daulerio, so I have no interest in delving deep into Tom Gores’ personal life. But this story is out there and well known, so we’ll just point it out and move on. Deal?
Gores reportedly had an affair with his brother Alec’s wife. His brother reportedly used famed Hollywood private investigator Anthony Pellicano to find information on his then-wife. Pellicano, you may remember, did prison time for illegal wiretapping. Alec Gores’ then-wife testified against Pellicano, and the details of her affair with Tom Gores became public since Pellicano had some very famous clients and his trial became a media spectacle.
So there it is. It in no way affects his ability to own/run a team, and if you’re into the personal lives of public figures, there’s more out there for you to find. Personally, celeb gossip isn’t my favorite thing, but if you’re into it, I’m not mad at cha.
