I don't feel he lied.
So a ten year personal services contract is all the difference in the commitment? What about the rabid fan base that worshiped him like a god? He was THE man here. He lied. He said he wasn't going to leave over a few million a year, which is exactly what he did. I don't blame him for taking the money. I would probably do the same thing. But don't tell me "The angels were tugging at my heart." And "god guided me to the angels". No, the money did that.
