And this isn’t the first accusation against Darryl and his new face.
A third-party counterclaim in US District Court in Nevada alleges Canadian billionaire Daryl Katz was in a sexual relationship with ballerina Sage Humphries when she was an underage teen.
The counterclaim is in response to a 2021 lawsuit that was filed against dance teacher Mitchell Taylor Button and his wife, Dusty Button, by Humphries and other ballet dancers who accused the couple of sexual abuse, the Canadian outlet reported.
Earlier this month, the couple filed the third-party counterclaim that alleges the Buttons were in a consensual “throuple sexual relationship” with Humphries when she was 18, but also claims Katz and two other men had sexual relationships with the Humphries when she was underage, CBC News reported. The claim seeks to hold the men responsible for any damages.
“If my guys send u funds will u spend it on/keep it for yourself?” Katz allegedly wrote. “And just between us? Even though u r wise beyond your years given our respective ages it would be taken the wrong way.”
“Yes .. Just between us,” Humphries allegedly replies.
“OK will have one of my guys email u. He will send you 50K,” Katz then allegedly replied.Katz’s attorney, Robert Klieger, denied the allegations.
I would deny it, too, every time.
Like two years ago when Katz was accused of paying another woman who was looking to start a movie for sex.
Either Daryl Katz uses movie funding as an in to pay young women for sex, or all of these women are making it up, and Daryl is being accused of doing the same thing at least twice that we know of.
Katz’s alleged text exchange with Sage doesn’t seem like an overly creepy sex exchange. We don’t know anything other than what’s in the third-party claim that suggests Mitchell and Dusty Button facilitated sex with young ballet dancers to rich friends and benefactors.
(Katz shorthand text game is strong)
None of the allegations have been proven in court, but Katz is going with the same ‘without merit’ defense. The allegations are just that, and you can’t assume Katz’s guilt based on VERY similar allegations with exact details from other women who don’t know each other. We must let this play out, assuming Katz doesn’t pay this away.
But what the fuck is a 53-year-old doing even texting a 17-year-old girl, much less sending her 50k because he’s a great guy looking to help a struggling ballet dancer.
It’s gross and highly suspect; at best and worst, it looks like Katz is greasing the wheels for sex with an underage girl for 50k.
The reclusive Katz hasn’t been out much because of his face and health conditions. He’s had several surgical procedures to repair his nose after suffering from ‘infections’ that never came from drug use. He made a brief appearance at a couple of Oiler playoff games, but he stays out of the public eye. Allegedly.
This is Daryl Katz’s “must get a goalie” face, right? pic.twitter.com/tun8QavYDg

Again, I go back to a 53-year-old man sharing texts with a 17-year-old girl and wiring her 50k ‘just cuz’ being the issue. When his lawyer says there’s no merit and the accusations are scurrilous, he doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with his client texting and sending her 50k before they meet up in a couple of weeks.
I do, but maybe that’s just me.
