Relic Rhine is a charming and proud up and coming screenwriter and musician. I met this person 7 years ago through a mutual (credible) friend and associate. Mr. Rhine never batted an eye lash picking up the tab when we would go to dinner. His charm and wit and knowledge of the music industry amazed me. We discussed things and shared the same views on many subjects in conjunction with this. We built what I thought was a solid foundation to start a business relationtionship after we already started a romantic one. He is a great salesman and makes valid points through use of key points and view points no one thinks about or could easily combat or question. Playing on a person's weakness or desire is what he mastered.
We quickly were immersed in each other and respected one another and I saw no problem in investing in the love of my life's dreams which he wanted to make me a part of. Little did I know that the funds that I provided were not entirely being used solely for the music business. The integrity was never questioned because Mr. Rhine always had excuses and boldly expressed dissatisfaction in my questioning and investigating him over the years. He would suggest that he was being harrassed and stalked by former people in the music industry (industry gangsters) and that my money and funds went to providing security detail for me so I could go to work everyday.
The first 3 years of our relationship were fragile. He showed me enough to appease my thoughts. He made studio records and developed an idea to make it into a screen play. More years went by and nothing happened by way of investors taking over and buying me out. Excuse after excuse 2006 happened and that is when I found out the entire time there was another woman that Mr. Rhine was supporting. Now I was the sole investor to my knowledge until I saw the credit card bills and ridiculous amount of money spent on hotels and food basically entertainment funds of which he said were going towards business. Then my Amex bill came with an airplane ticket for this woman who was supposed to be married to his cousin. Having a long distance business relationship and relationship is hard to do when all you truly have is someone's word and credit card statements.
Needless to say the whole jist of this story is that Mr. Rhine got me to invest in him financially and personally and he turned out to be a horrible person who never made anything out of what was provided. He owes me money for dental bills and the money that was invested that was supposed to go to finishing up a project that would be sold for millions when all it does now is collect dust. The talent has never been questioned but the ethics are. I have no contact whatsoever. No phone numbers no responses to emails and according to the woman that was supposedly married to the cousin.... she let me know that she was also his girlfriend for 6 years as was I but she claimed that she was married to him. He adamantly and vehemently denied his relationship entirely. He appears to be a shrewd business man but he is not a shrewd business man. He takes advantage of women that are strong and independent and shares those dreams with you and before you know it you have a bankruptcy and no money.
I was stupid to believe in him and invest my money to help move his career along when it was never going to go anywhere. Not to mention the sting you feel when you find out you are cheated on to this particular level. The relationship portion is completely finished and over with by my choice since Feb 2009. However the unfinished business of the bills and the money invested is a clear indication of my naivety to a person like this. Its unfortunate that he did not use his talents to make money but instead rip me off for it. I cannot say that I am not angry or bitter because I am. I loved this person completely and believed in him 100%. He had me totally convinced. He always has me scared to say anything about him because of who he says he is and how he is a wanted man and how he knows all these dangerous people.
My thoughts now are how many women have you done this to? He had a job when I met him but it was through a temp agency in 2003 he did not take another job until 2008 for 2 months and then he went back to the girlfriend he left that he was with while living with me. I would never advise anyone to give him money or invest any money in any business venture because it is only used to get ahead in his personal relationships. Its really unfortunate that it has been this way. I still pay dental bills for him because its on my credit card ($2500) and have asked him to provide for the bill and nothing has happened. There is now also requests for receipts from him and he will not provide them to me. He has not responded to any of my emails and will not get in contact with me to take care of the bad business he has done with me.
If you are a successful woman make no mistake...the charm and intellect is superficial there is no depth to this person. You may thinkso he will write songs for you and tell you everything you never think you would hear from any real man. That stuff just happens in the movies. He lives in a total fantasy state/realm and takes you right there then when you least expect it --- the effects of reality hit you and you realize it after the money is all gone and there is no way to survive the life style that you were providing for this person. He knows all about the good life... I would too if I were living off of someone else and taking this to his level.
I will not stop until I get my money and some form of repayment back from this person. I have all the documentation to sustain my claim. I am not at all in a position to turn and look the other way. I gave him everything and did everything for him. I even took care of his kids financially and provided school stuff for them. His charm will get you every time and the pseudo love you think he has for you really is just love for your funds in your account. You can't love someone for 6 years and do that to them. So my conclusion is that the love never existed and it was solely just to take from me and my family.
If you are a person in love with another person use caution to proceed. People lie and take clear and full advantage. Don't be a victim like me.
