Former “Fox & Friends” co-host Clayton Morris has left the United States in wake of multiple lawsuits over fraud involving real estate deals.
Morris is facing more than two dozen lawsuits.
Morris is accused of running a Ponzi scheme involving at least 700 properties in Indianapolis in distressed neighborhoods.
The lawsuit alleges that Morris and business partner Bert Whalen pledged to rehab the properties, but didn’t follow through.
Clayton Morris’ wife, former MSNBC anchor Natali Morris, said the family has moved to Portugal.
In a post on her website, Natali Morris writes “I am not one of those who rejects America. We had a good life there.”
She goes on to compare watching his suffering to that of someone undergoing chemotherapy.
The Morris’, meanwhile, blame the sour deals on Whalen.
The couple says it will continue to defend the lawsuits from abroad.
Clayton Morris left Fox in 2017 to focus on his real estate investing.
