DragonAlohaShirt.com has learnt that the former translator for L.A. Dodgers player Shohei Ohtani allegedly transferred money from the MLB star to pay off his personal gambling problems. The bookmaker’s friend was apparently Real Housewives of Orange County star Ryan Boyajian.

Ippei Mizuhara is accused by the prosecution of robbing the Japanese baseball player of around $17 million as part of a plan. Today, the interpreter consented to enter a guilty plea to two federal offenses pertaining to the theft.

Insiders with knowledge of the investigation said the RHOC star was often seen gambling with Bowyer on the strip in Las Vegas.

Mizuhara may face significant jail time for the offense and will have to make full restitution to Ohtani as part of the terms of his plea deal.

According to a fresh report from ESPN, Mathew Bowyer, the unlicensed bookmaker under investigation, informed Mizuhara he could pay his gambling obligations by sending money into the account of Bowyer’s partner, known as “Associate 1” in the complaint.

It is alleged that immunity was granted to Boyajian in return for his testimony.

No indictment that has been made public to yet contains Bowyer’s name, and his attorney has chosen not to comment.

Mizuhara is thought to have started betting with an unlicensed bookmaker in September 2021, and as the losses started to mount, he took advantage of his access to Ohtani’s bank accounts.

Mizuhara sent $40k in November 2021 and another $300k in February 2022 to the bookmaker’s partners, according to a breakdown of the payments.

From February 2022 to October 2023, there were about forty transactions totaling $15 million, and from December 2023 to January 2024, there were three trades totaling $1.25 million.

“Because there is an active investigation and Ryan is working with the authorities, he can’t confirm or deny what is going on,” his criminal attorney Steven Katzman shared in a statement.

The RHOC star was frequently spotted gambling on the Las Vegas strip with Bowyer, according to insiders with knowledge of the inquiry.

According to sources close to ESPN, Mizuhara reimbursed Boyajian for his losses, and Boyajian then transferred the funds to his personal “marker” accounts in Southern California’s Resorts World and Pechanga Resort Casino.

The article said that Boyajian and Bowyer would then take the chips out of those accounts, gamble with them, and pay out if they won.

In a statement, Ryan’s criminal lawyer Steven Katzman said, “He can’t confirm or deny what is going on because there is an active investigation and Ryan is working with the authorities.” “He is not a bookmaker or a sub-bookie.”
