Via the Huffington Post:
Felix Dennis, the publisher of Maxim magazine, drunkenly confessed to committing a murder in an otherwise run-of-the-mill interview with a Times of London reporter:
He looks so intense that I ask him whether he’s ever fought with a man over a woman. “I’ve killed a man,” he says. What? “I’ve killed a man.” What do you mean, you’ve killed a man? “I killed him.” Does everyone know you’ve killed a man? “No, and they’ll never find out, either.” Are you kidding me? Are you winding me up? Where? In what country? “I killed him. That’s all you need to know. I killed him.”
Oh Felix, you’re having me on. “No.” Promise me. Swear to God… “He hurt her and I told him to stop and he kept on.” What did it feel like, then? “He hurt her.” What did you do? “Pushed him over the edge of a cliff.”
Are you sure you want to be telling me this? “Don’t care. Anybody harms one of mine… if they harm one of mine, they’d better know what they’re doing…”
The billionaire publisher later blamed the confession on drinking three or four bottles of wine, which is never a good idea when someone is interviewing you. I always thought that every billionaire had murdered at least one person with his or her bare hands, frankly. I figured it was some kind of initiation rite.
