West Indies cricket superstar Chris Gayle is seeking to cash in on a court case win against an Australian media group, promising a tell-all interview – but only if the price is right.
The all-rounder was accused by Fairfax Media, publisher of The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, in a series of stories last year of exposing his genitals to a massage therapist and indecently propositioning her.
But a NSW Supreme Court jury ruled a defamation case in his favour late last month, finding the articles were motivated by malice.
A hearing on damages will be held at a later date, but Gayle is already offering his story for a starting price of US$300,000.
“I have a very interested (sic) successful story to tell!! It can be an exclusive 60mins interview or y’all just have to wait on my next book!,” he tweeted to his 3.75 million Twitter followers today.
