Social Gloves Fiasco
In June 2020 Austin produced an event called "Social Gloves: Battle of the Platforms" which pitted YouTube and TikTok personalities in a boxing event. The event was organized by Austin's company, Simply Greatness Productions LLC. The event was hoping to receive 2.2 million Pay Per View buys. According to a lawsuit filed months later, the event only drew 136,000 PPV buys. The lack of PPV interest set off a slew of lawsuits from performers and production companies involved in the event. Austin's company was reportedly at one point considering filing for bankruptcy and suing one of the marketing firms for failing to properly market the event. A marketing firm called LiveXLive sued McBroom's company seeking $100 million in damages. Two performers sued claiming to be owed around $2.7 million for their boxing services.
According to several reports, including one from the NY Post and another from Billboard, Brooklyn Nets star James Harden and rapper Lil Baby both invested in the event are allegedly seeking millions in owed payments.
In May 2019 Austin and Catherine paid $10.6 million for a mid-construction property in Woodland Hills, California. According to real estate records, they put roughly $1 million down and financed roughly $9 million. At the time of the purchase the property featured two un-finished mansions. They couple proceeded to complete the construction, likely spending millions of additional dollars. The final product features a half basketball court, mini-put course and wrapping infinity pool that stretches two sides of the property. In September 2019 they filmed a tour of the mansion for their YouTube channel:
At the 1 hour 3 minute mark of the above video, note how Austin decides to ride a jet ski in their infinity pool. This action reportedly caused a mudslide on the neighbor's property below.
On July 7, 2021, Dirt.com reported that the McBrooms had stopped making payments on their mansion in early 2021 and the property was allegedly entering pre-foreclosure. A week later the home was listed as for sale on the MLS for $10 million.
