Ken Hill (Grand River Enterprises) Ken Hill may well be the wealthiest Indigenous businessman in Canada.
The billionaire Six Nations resident launched the world’s largest private Indigenous-owned corporation, Grand River Enterprises Ltd., in 1992 — selling enormous volumes of cigarettes in Germany, the Bahamas, the U.S. and elsewhere.
The company does hundreds of millions of dollars in business annually and Hill receives tens of millions of dollars in profits each year.
According to court documents filed in a support case against him, Hill pays no income tax on his self-reported income of $5.3 million in 2013 because of Indian Act exemptions.
Brittany Beaver, his ex-lover and mother of his son who is now receiving child support of $33,000 a month from Hill, has desperately tried to determine his true income and wealth, according to her filings.
She alleges Hill “repeatedly threatened her that she will never know his true income or net worth because he doesn’t file income tax returns and has connections that will assist him in hiding his assets from her.”
He denied saying this.
After two years of litigation, she says, Hill finally relented and provided further financial disclosure.
He revealed he makes $5.49 million but his total expenses surpass that at $7.4 million. His legal bills alone in 2017 were $1.2 million.
He listed several Canadian properties, including a $1.135 million Lee Ave. home in Kitchener (held in trust for their son) where his boy, Beaver, her new boyfriend and their child live. Brittany Beaver (FACEBOOK_) According to his disclosure, Hill states his car collection is valued at $5.58 million, his 2010 Lazzara 76-foot yacht is worth $2.76 M and his 2013 Sea Ray Sundancer, $939,000.
Hill’s expansive garage has a fleet of luxury vehicles, including a Lamborghini, three Porsches, at least two Ferraris, four Rolls Royces, says Beaver.
He lives in a world of luxury and comfort that most people dream of and often takes his private jet to Vegas where he stays in the most expensive suites ($4,000 to $25,000 a night), according to court documents.
Hill parties with rock legend Rod Stewart, former boxing champ Mike Tyson, actorss Tia Carrere and Emmanuel Lewis, Trailer Park Boys and rapper Snoop Dogg, who recorded a track with Hill’s rapper son Josh that became controversial because it referred to “pocahotties.”
While Hill and Beaver were involved romantically, he lavished her with expensive gifts, frequent travel (sometimes with him, but often without him) and shopping sprees, according to the court records.
In happier times, the couple stayed at the largest suite in a Bahamas resort, which cost $20,000 a night. That figure is only slightly less than Hill’s monthly child support payments for his son.
Hill has five other children by four different women — Joshua, Ryan, Jasmine, Gabriella and Jordan, all of whom he financially supports.Hill either owns or has an interest in a private 10-seater plan, which Beaver and her mother travelled in, she stated in an affidavit.Hill denies owning a jet or helicopter, saying GRE formerly leased a jet that he accessed. He denied being a billionaire and asserted no one, including himself, has “seemingly unlimited financial resources.”Beaver also alleges Hill has an 18,000 sq. ft. Bahamas mansion, where her son stayed in December 2014 and December 2015.Hill also possesses “multi-million dollar mansions” in Los Angeles, Atlanta and Miami, she alleges.None of these properties were mentioned in Hill’s financial disclosure.Hill also paid for Beaver and a friend to vacation in Costa Rica for two weeks in February 2010, another trip to Hawaii for a week in July that year and a two-week vacation for her and their son to Disney World in Orlando, Fla., in August 2012.While Hill […]
