Sam Bankman-Fried met with ‘Big Short’ author Michael Lewis

Currently holed up at his parents’ home at Stanford University after being released on $250 million bail last week following being slapped with federal charges of financial fraud and money laundering, Bankman-Fried was visited by bestselling author Michael Lewis.

Sources exclusively told The Post Tuesday “Moneyball” writer Lewis spent several hours inside the residence just hours after Bankman-Fried had landed Friday, presumably talking about the latest twist in his crypto-downfall which has seen him go from a 30-year-old billionaire to facing up to 115 years in prison in a matter of weeks.

Bankman-Fried’s collaboration with Lewis is said to have been ongoing for around six months, long before financial irregularities were spotted, but it was first reported after FTX’s collapse in November, when entertainment newsletter The Ankler leaked a note from Lewis’ publishing agency pitching the book to potential movie rights buyers.
