Gus “The Great Dane” Hanson headed to court over in Denmark last week as he proves why you shouldn’t mix friendship and business.
The trouble all started back in 2015 when Hansen invested in his friend’s venture—the Danish music festival called, “Denmark the Best”. The project saw Hansen invest large sums of money into the project—in the end, he loaned the project 1.7m Kroner— but upon parting ways with the company in 2016, the balance outstanding to Hansen was never repaid.
According to HihgStakesDB, after “much screaming and shouting” Hansen could not find a way forward with the one-time friend to settle the matter. It resulted in Hansen playing hardball and taking his friend to court.
From Hansen’s Instagram posts, the court is now adjourned and the waiting game as to how things will move forward is afoot.
