The morning after the Gala les Olivier, Mike Ward isn't the only one provoking reactions. Indeed, while all eyes are on the comedian who delivered a rather flamboyant speech, it is the former number 8 of the Montreal Canadiens, as well as former husband of celebrity Maripier Morin, Brandon Prust, who has garnered a lot of attention with a story on his Instagram account.
The former hockey player published a photo of an advertising campaign for the Rockland Centre with his old flame. Accompanying the photo was this message:
"Still haven't seen a penny from this ad with @centrerockland that @maripiermorin made me do."
After three hours, the star deleted the photo from his Instagram account, which has more than 208,000 followers.Capture of Brandon Prust's Instagram post.

In his second caption, Prust alleged that Morin "conned" him:
"She made 120k and I made 40k, which I never got. Guess she conned me on that too."
She said that her business brought her $1.3 million in revenue in 2018. However, she also said that she, herself, earned a gross salary of $150,000 plus $100,000 in dividends.
Of course, this campaign is not part of the above-mentioned income since it took place in April 2019, a few months before the break-up of the couple was reported.
It was towards the end of the summer of 2019 when followers realized that Prust and Morin, who married in July 2017 and renewed vows in 2018, were no longer following each other on Instagram.
They made the official announcement in early spring, while Maripier Morin was keen to remain quite discreet about this difficult separation.
Narcity Québec contacted both Maripier Morin and Rockland Centre for comment but have yet to receive a response.
We will update this article if and when they do.
