Actors Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel and wrestling star Roman Reigns reportedly made purchases from an unlawful anabolic steroid distributor, Wellness Fitness and Nutrition (WFN).
An arrested dealer, Richard Rodriguez, named the three celebrities during a phone interview with filmmaker Jon Bravo from the Brooklyn Detention Center in New York, reports tmz.com.
Rodriguez claimed the Hollywood stars would have the drugs delivered under a different name.
“This is an individual that is very well-known and will help me in extending into a market that I’m very interested in. The individual’s name is Mark Wahlberg,” said Rodriguez.
“He used to get creative with ways in which to ship the particular products to certain countries and areas where we can receive the products – but not necessarily under his name,” he added.
Rodriguez claimed he is the one who decided to cut ties with Wahlberg once the actor got too “demanding”.
“Wahlberg was a really good person, but as it started to get more in-depth – our relationship – he just started to become a little bit more demanding. I just chose to – once I started to see his true colours – to sever my ties,” he said.
Revealing other names, Rodriguez said: “One in particular is a very famous wrestler by the name of Roman Reigns. He was originally introduced to me by one of the informants. Another individual is a guy by the name of Josh Duhamel, he’s been in a lot of high-profile movies, he’s also known as the former husband of Fergie. I’ve worked with a lot of A-list celebrities.”
