Blackmail

Main article: William Grey.

In 2012, Fox News broke the story that Brock was being blackmailed by a gay ex-lover of more than 10 years, William Grey, who demanded $850,000 otherwise he'd embarrass Brock to his donors and report him to the IRS. Grey claimed to have damaging information over the non-profit group's finances. Brock had to sell a historic $1.5 home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware to cover the costs [6] [7].
