In an interview Caesar did with The Domenick Nati Show on June 21, he said that, for five years, the only days he took off were holidays because he was working so much to be able to give Maria the money she asked for.
Caesar explains why he gave Maria so much money
It started with Caesar paying for Maria’s visa and airplane ticket.
“At that time, I was trying to get the visa done, I was trying to get her airplane ticket done, I was trying to get everything on point so that she could get there. And then when she didn’t even make it here, that’s when I called the show and that’s when they helped me out,” he said.
When Caesar and Maria did finally meet, Caesar was disappointed when Maria, right away, asked for more money.
“At that time, she had some bills to take care of. So since I was there, I probably brought like $7,000. So since I was there I was like, ‘Well, let me help you out.’ So what I did was, I gave her $2,000 and then she was like, ‘Can I get at least 4?’” he shared.
Caesar continued: “I’m like, ‘What are you talking about? I came here to see you! I didn’t come here to spend all my damn money.’ I thought we were gonna go on trips. I thought I was gonna see Ukraine, nice places there. Didn’t visit nowhere at all.”
Caesar reflects on the amount of money he gave to Maria–$90,000 a year
Then, Caesar said Maria asked for a regular payment of $800 every two week.
“She was like, ‘In order to be with me, you’ve got to give me about $800 every two weeks.’ And she was like, ‘Cause I don’t want to work in this country. And if I work in the country, it’s not going to be good for me because it’s corrupt.’ That’s what she was telling me. She was like, ‘Hey, I just can’t work in this country like that. And if I do work somewhere else, our relationship is over. So if I leave the country, then our relationship is over.’ And then that was it,” he said.
All in all, Caesar estimates he gave Maria about $90,000 a year for five years straight.
“About $90,000 a year for five years. I’ll say it’s been around there. It was like $800 every two weeks. A whole $800 every two weeks for approximately five years straight. I was working like seven days a week. I wasn’t taking no days off. That’s real. That’s no bullsh*t you guys. That is no bullsh*t. That’s saving up my tips and everything. That’s a fact,” he said.
Now, Caesar says he’s enjoying making money purely for himself.
“And now, since I haven’t given no money at all to anybody, I have my own money. So now I’m actually having my own money and I can actually do things,” he said.
