23-year-old, his mother, and stepfather face a lawsuit for allegedly not repaying $1.8 million of a $2 million loan from a tech company.
In a filing, Ankr PBC says that it made a loan to Williamson and his family back in September 2021.

The company helped Williamson with community events and provided him with a personal chef according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit also says Ankr agreed not to sue if they received repayment of $500,000 by April 25, 2023, with the rest of the outstanding money due July 6, 2023.
However, tech company states act while they received $500,00 on time, $300,000 of which covered interest, $1.8 million remains unpaid.
