The Justice Department did not disclose who bought the album or how much they paid for it, however, citing a confidentiality provision included in the sale.
But the DOJ said the money from the album’s sale would go toward the remaining balance owed on the approximately $7.4 million forfeiture order entered against Shkreli at his March 2018 sentencing.
The album includes a hand-carved nickel-silver box, along with a leather-bound manuscript containing lyrics and a certificate of authenticity. When Shkreli purchased the album in 2015, it was marketed as “both a work of art and an audio artifact,” says the release.
Before his conviction, which was related to his time as CEO of biotech company Retrophin, Shkreli was dubbed “the most hated man in America” in 2015 while serving as CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals after he increased the price of an AIDS drug from $13.50 to $750 per pill.
