Although details about his assets, such as his house and cars, are still behind bars, it’s sure that he lives in a well-equipped house and owns an expensive car.

Stephen Yelich: Social Media Presence

Christian Yeli’s father is not available on social media sites.

On the one hand, it is weird not to have a social media handle in today’s world, but Stephen must like to live away from the limelight.

Or he has secret social media account for his close friends and family members only?

Moreover, his children also never post anything related to his father. We don’t know the reason behind this but hope everything is good between them.
