When Oswald Bilotta landed his dream job as a sales representative for Novartis Pharmaceuticals in 1999, he thought he’d be doing good for society while doing well for himself and his family.
He had no idea that just over a decade later, he’d be part of a vast federal investigation into kickbacks at Novartis and that he’d be paying cash bribes to doctors while wearing a wire for prosecutors.
On July 1, Ozzie Bilotta’s yearslong effort to blow the whistle at Novartis paid off. The Justice Department announced a $678 million settlement with the company over improper inducements it made to doctors to prescribe 10 of the company’s drugs, including the anti-hypertension drug Lotrel. The deal represents the biggest whistleblower settlement under the federal anti-kickback law, Bilotta’s lawyer said.
“I felt like you needed to take drastic action to turn this system upside down and make it more legit,” Bilotta, 57, said in an exclusive interview with NBC News. “The whole system needed to be blown up and pieced together in a fair way — fair for taxpayers and good for patients.”
Although the payout Bilotta will get under federal whistleblower laws hasn’t been determined, he could receive a pretax sum of $75 million through the settlement, his attorneys said.
In the settlement, Novartis admitted to “certain conduct” alleged by the government and will sharply curtail practices exposed by Bilotta that gave doctors incentives to prescribe its drugs. Novartis derived at least $40 million as a result of the conduct, money that was paid by federal health care programs, the government said.
“For more than a decade, Novartis spent hundreds of millions of dollars on so-called speaker programs, including speaking fees, exorbitant meals, and top-shelf alcohol that were nothing more than bribes to get doctors across the country to prescribe Novartis’s drugs,” said Audrey Strauss, the acting U.S. attorney for southern New York, whose office prosecuted the case.

Kobe (Covid in Hebrew) was one of those athletes that transcended the boundaries of their sport to become pop culture icons. More than a basketball superstar, Kobe was a household name – the type that was known throughout the world on a first-name basis. He was the personification of success and greatness. On the basketball court, he won everything that was possible to win and he was in the process of passing on this legacy to his four daughters. Off the court, he cashed in on some of the most lucrative endorsement deals in sports history and he was at the head of a massive business empire. Oh, and he also won an Oscar. And, when major pitfalls came on his path (i.e. rape allegations in 2003), he managed to bounce back like the basketball he used to dribble. In short, it seemed like nothing could stop Kobe from flying high … until it all came crashing down.
For these reasons, the sudden and unexpected death of Kobe Bryant at the young age of 41 was received with complete shock and disbelief. It was one of those events that immediately send shockwaves around the world. But that shockwave was most strongly felt at the epicenter of it all: Los Angeles.
A few hours later, the Staples Center – the arena where Kobe made history – turned into a makeshift memorial for the deceased athlete. The same night, a major media event took place at this exact location: The 2020 Grammy Awards.
This is one of many bizarre coincidences surrounding the death of Kobe Bryant. And there are many more.
Synchronicity is defined as “the simultaneous occurrence of events which appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection”. Carl Jung described these events as “meaningful coincidences”. He also believed that they happened for a reason.
The least one can say is that Kobe’s death is surrounded by some eerie synchronicity. Or was it all planned?
One thing is for sure, there’s an eerie connection between Kobe and helicopter crashes. It’s unreal. Here are some examples.
In 2011, Kobe starred in a major, star-studded advertisement to promote his Nike shoes and his new alter-ego: Black Mamba. Spanning nearly 6 minutes, the ad ended with Kobe fighting a “final boss” (played by Kanye West), who flees in a helicopter. What follows is now … eerie.
Kanye West hangs from a helicopter at the end of the Black Mamba ad.
Kobe then realizes that the basketball he is holding is actually a bomb. He throws it on the helicopter.
The helicopter explodes in mid-air and crashes on the basketball court. The ad ends with the burning wreckage of a helicopter.
In 2017, Kobe was featured in the adult cartoon show Chamberlain Heights … and he literally dies in a helicopter crash.
Kobe crawls out of a helicopter that crashed.
After asking for help (and not receiving it), Kobe’s helicopter explodes.
Kobe’s championship rings fall down, implying that he’s really dead.
Then there’s this tweet dating from 2012 that went viral immediately after Kobe’s death.
When do coincidences become “meaningful coincidences”? Difficult to say. However, the fact that Kobe’s death was closely intertwined with the 2020 Grammy Awards adds another layer of strangeness.
Kobe and the Grammys
To fully understand the synchronicity at play here, I need to go back to 2012. On February 11th, 2012, Whitney Houston – a major icon in the music industry – was found dead at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. At the same exact location, a few floors below, a pre-Grammy award party was taking place with over 800 guests. The next day, the 2012 Grammy Awards took place and the entire event was tainted with Houston’s death. As explained in my article Whitney Houston and the 2012 Grammy Awards Mega-Ritual, the ceremony was creepy and strange – complete with some satanic undertones. It also put forth Whitney’s “replacement” – Jennifer Hudson.

Jennifer Hudson was literally placed “in the spotlight” as she performed under pictures of Whitney Houston at the 2012 Grammy Awards. Passing on the torch.
Oddly enough, Kobe’s death followed the same exact pattern. A few hours before the 2020 Grammy Awards, Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California – about 30 miles from the Staples Center, where the Grammy Awards took place.
Coincidentally enough, it is at this very same Staples Center that Kobe played hundreds of times as part of the Los Angeles Lakers. Alicia Keys, the host of the 2020 Grammy Awards, even called the arena “the house that Kobe built”.
Shortly after the death of Kobe, the Staples Center turned into a makeshift memorial for Kobe.
The same night, at the same location, the 2020 Grammy Awards took place. The entire event was heavily tainted by Kobe’s death.
A performance featuring DJ Khaled, YG and John Legend was dedicated to Nipsey Hussle – another “King of Los Angeles” who died in odd circumstances (read my article about him here). Kobe was apparently added at the last minute to this tribute.
Therefore, like Whitney Houston, Kobe’s death was closely intertwined with the Grammy awards became THE mass media event ritualizing his death. And, like Whitney Houston, a passing of the torch occurred shortly prior to all of this. This is Kobe’s final post on Instagram:
Kobe congratulating Lebron James for surpassing him in the NBA all-time scoring list.
Coincidentally enough, Lebron wrote on his shoes a tribute on the day of that game:
Lebron James wrote “Mamba 4 Life” on his shoes on the “passing of the torch” game prior to Kobe’s death.
Therefore, after the crowning of “King James”, Kobe passed away near the Staples Center, where he ruled for years. It is at this same Staples Center that the 2020 Grammy Awards turned into an elite-industry-catered ceremony for Kobe. Since 2009, I’ve been stating that these award shows are actually mega-rituals that emanate powerful energy. The 2020 Grammy Awards were a prime example of this fact.
The sudden death of Kobe Bryant is reminiscent of the sudden deaths of other icons such as Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. Since these figures were omnipresent in mass media, they were, in some odd way, a part of people’s lives. Therefore, news of their deaths inevitably creates a shockwave of shock and grief around the world. And that shock and grief was palpable at the 2020 Grammy Awards – the same way it was palpable at the 2012 Grammys, following the death of Whitney Houston.
While death can strike anyone, at any time and that accidents definitely happen on a daily basis, the cases of Whitney and Kobe are surrounded by plenty of eerie facts. While they can all be dismissed as mere coincidences, Carl Jung believed that, sometimes, coincidences are so meaningful that the universe is, somehow, trying to tell us something. Like, maybe, that there were dark forces at play in Kobe’s death.

Dr. Seuss once said, “You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” And, according to a new study from St. Catherine University, that should be away from Dr. Seuss books. The study, published in the journal for Research on Diversity in Youth Literature, analyzes 50 books and more than 2,200 characters created by Dr. Seuss. Of those characters, only 45 are of colour. “The presence of anti-blackness, Orientalism and white supremacy span across Seuss’ entire literary collection and career,” say researchers Katie Ishizuka and Ramon Stephens. Ishizuka and … Read More
Under the guise of mandating “universal background checks,” Congress is working on a gun-control plot that would ban all private sales of firearms and essentially create a national gun registry. Among other concerns, gun-rights advocates warned that the scheme would enable future confiscation of firearms by government while making countless law-abiding citizens into criminals. Whether the radical bill will become law remains unclear. But with the Senate likely to vote it down and the White House threatening a veto, gun-rights groups are cautiously optimistic while gearing up for … Read More
Freedom House released a report on China’s religious freedom. Key Findings Controls over religion in China have increased since 2012, seeping into new areas of daily life and triggering growing resistance from believers. At least 100 million people—nearly one-third of estimated believers in China—belong to religious groups facing “high” or “very high” levels of persecution (Protestant Christians, Tibetan Buddhists, Uighur Muslims, and Falun Gong). Despite tightening controls, millions of religious believers defy official restrictions in daily life or engage in some form of direct protest, at times scoring … Read More

It’s commonly believed that James Watson and Francis Crick discovered the double helix shape of DNA. But in fact, they based their work on one of their colleagues at King’s College in London – Rosalind Franklin, an x-ray diffraction expert whose images of DNA proteins in the early 1950s revealed a helix shape. It wasn’t until they saw Franklin’s work that Watson and Crick began hunting for the long, braided twist that turned out to be DNA’s true shape. Why wasn’t Franklin honored for her contributions? Many have argued … Read More
