After listing his controversial Wu-Tang Clan album on eBay last week, Bloomberg reports that Martin Shkreli’s $2 million copy of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin may not be an authorized Wu-Tang Clan project.

The report states the managers of two charter members of the group said the album was a project taken on by Moroccan producer Tarik Azzougarh, known as Cilvaringz.

“It’s not an authorized Wu-Tang Clan album,” said Domingo Neris, the manager of the rapper U-God. “It never was.”

“When we did the verses, it was for a Cilvaringz album,” says James Ellis, manager of Method Man. “How it became a Wu-Tang album from there? We have no knowledge of that.”

When Bloomberg contacted Shkreli via email about the new information that has surfaced about Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, he responded with “hahahahahahahahahahahaha,” and then proceeded to insult Bloomberg LP, which publishes financial data and news.

Martin Shkreli is currently sitting in a federal jail in Brooklyn. On Wednesday, a federal judge revoked the fraudster’s bail after Shkreli offered his Facebook followers $5,000 for a lock of Hillary Clinton’s hair. There have been over 340 bids for the single copy of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, with the current price currently at over $1 million.
