Fred Baron Wants His $810k Back From Son Andrew

Lawyer Fred Baron loaned his son Andrew more than $800,000 to help found an Internet-video company called Rocketboom. Sony Pictures signed a seven-figure deal with Rocketboom, giving the start-up a good degree of credibility and promise. Not enough, says father Fred. Valleywag has more on the saga and how Fred took son Andrew to court to try to get his money back.

    Where’s my two dollars?

  2. Surrogate Babies says:

    We didn’t know that our new dad was a total douche. Could we please pick a new family?

  3. Andrew Baron says:

    Hey yall, lets not get too carried away. I love my dad and think he is one of the greatest, well meaning people on the Earth. This Valleywag (!) article is from Jackson West (!) trying to bring in $ for himself based on how many hits he can get with his stories. :/

    Between the Hunt’s, the Hill’s and the Baron’s, you’d think someone could make a TV show about the in-fighting amongst families in this city.

    I was so glad that West included the 40 cents. Accuracy is important…

    Hey, I’d like to get the five bucks I lent my 10-year-old last Sunday at Hurricane Harbor. Any tips, Fred?
