The Dark Side of Fame: Threatening phone calls force Joe Hachem to move

by Lou on April 10, 2007

An Australian newspaper reported that former WSOP winner Joe Hachem has been forced to move his family to a new house in a different section of Melbourne after repeated telephone calls and letters threatened Hachem and his family.

“We’ve just bought a house recently, more for security reasons because my address was public knowledge.” said Hachem. “You get a few phone calls, you get a letter in the mail and you think, ‘You know what, I don’t need this’.”
“I didn’t expect it,” Hachem said. “I just thought I’d be world champion, get a nice endorsement and go back to my normal life. Bullshit, there’s nothing normal about my life these days.”
