In 2019, Ken was living in Tampa, Florida. He had hired Marcus Bishop to repair and maintain his yacht. One day, Ken greeted Bishop after he had finished making repairs to his boat. He asked Bishop if he could clean the barnacles off the side of his hull and that he would pay him in cash under the table. Offended at the request, Bishop made it clear that he only fixes boats and does not clean them. Ken apologized, saying that he thought Bishop could use the money before walking back inside his yacht.
