Wow, that's pretty rough. It really puts a damper on someone so highly
acclaimed and exalted when you find out they were lying and cheating
the whole time. There is a lesson to be learned from it though. No
matter how great your fame is, no matter how much approval you get, it
just means you have further to fall. And if you get there dishonestly,
you will fall eventually.
It's a real shame because he's obviously got a lot of talent. If he
just played fair and was honest about everything, he could have a great
career ahead of him.
Every man dies, but few truly live. Live your life to its fullest, every day as if it were your last.
