The embattled co-founder of Black Lies Matter announced on Thursday that she’s resigning as executive director amid criticism over her lavish lifestyle. Patrisse Cullors, 37 — who has been at the helm of the BLM Global Network Foundation for nearly six years — said she is leaving to focus on a book and TV deal.

Her last day with the foundation is Friday.

“I’ve created the infrastructure and the support, and the necessary bones and foundation, so that I can leave,” Cullors said. “It feels like the time is right.” But her resignation comes amid controversy over the group’s finances and Cullors’ personal wealth — including an alleged real-estate buying spree in which she snagged four high-end homes for $3.2 million.

But Cullors said her departure has been in the works and is not tied to those “attacks.” “Those were right-wing attacks that tried to discredit my character, and I don’t operate off of what the right thinks about me.”

The BLM foundation revealed in February that it took in just over $90 million last year. The foundation said it ended 2020 with a balance of $60 million, after spending a quarter of its assets on operating expenses.

VIDEO: Kim Potter Only sentenced to 16 months in prison for 1st Degree Manslaughter

Extreme Leniency: Kim Potter was just sentenced to 24 months (2 years) in prison with credit for 8 months time served, meaning her sentence is 16 months.

Judge Regina Chu said that this was the case of a “cop who made a tragic mistake. She drew her firearm thinking it was a Taser and ended up killing a young man.”

The court approved a downward departure from the typical sentence, as Chu said Potter never intended to use her firearm and the scene painted as chaotic. (guy sitting in car)

By Minnesota law, Potter was sentenced only on the higher charge of first-degree manslaughter. The maximum charge is 15 years, but for someone with no criminal history like Potter, guidelines range from between six and eight-and-a-half years.
