ICYMI: Dane Cook on LKL last night on 'terrible betrayal' of brother

Posted: 08:23 AM ET

Comedian Dane Cook took a somber tone and described a sense of "terrible betrayal" in discussing the recent arrest of his half brother, who is accused of embezzling millions from him.

Cook spoke about the ordeal Thursday on CNN's "Larry King Live."

"It's a terrible betrayal. But hopefully justice will be served and I can move on with my life," Cook said.

Cook's half brother, Darryl McCauley, has been accused of embezzling millions from Cook while he was the Boston-area comic's manager.

McCauley was arrested in December and charged with larceny, forgery and other crimes, according to authorities in Boston, Massachusetts.

McCauley is accused of transferring Cook's money into his own account. And in one case, McCauley is accused of forging a $3 million dollar check written on Cook's account, according to the Massachusetts attorney general's office.

I am trying to think of how many people were taken in by their managers-Joe Louis, etc. Then we have Bernie and Ceo's getting fortunes for manipulating the books and our current Investment Firms having real problems getting the trust of investors. The division of wealth in America that profits the few and is erasing the middle class-Maybe it is time to rethink the idea of huge untaxed bonuses and make our athletes and entertainers actually subject to performance contracts-Say three year max contracts with bonuses based on performance, same for Executive Pay and bonuses although I would prefer a straight salary agreement for CEOs as they have more perks now than they deserve. We should also change our Elections to provide Tax payer dollars to Candidates instead of Political Contributions and limit Lobbies altogether as Campaign Financers. Think that would change a few things around and require considerable rethinking in Congress-Constituents might actually have a voice again!

It is amazing how many family members steal, abuse, and kill other family members and sometimes get away with things because they are "FAMILY'. I had a young cousin who was monthly and routinely stealing a portion of my grandmothers social security money from her purse....when I caught her not once but twice.... I wanted to call the police and have her formally grandmother and relatives rallied around her... on her behalf and asked me not to...I didn' she is a prostitute and drug addict with three kids.
