That's at least the story the dildo collector told Bloomberg so okay, sure. Other things "The Godfather" (also known as "The Pope") got off his chest include:
* The fact that he is, as previously stated, a genius:

"I am amazingly brilliant analytically," says Gundlach, a wiry man whose short brown hair hugs his skull like a helmet.

* That the drugs, paraphernalia ("bearing evidence of recent use"), 12 sexual "devices," 34 "hardcore pornographic magazines," and 36 "hardcore sexually explicit DVDs and videocassettes" found in his former offices at TCW were nothing, and that attempts to use them in order to make him look bad were cheap, since it's not like he had them scattered about the place.

Gundlach says the drugs, porn and sex toys are relics from a closed chapter in his life and were stored in a crate. He says TCW disclosed their existence to damage his reputation with investors. "It's ancient stuff, like a box in an attic," he says. "But they figured, 'Let's try and destroy the guy and throw some slander and sleaze on him.'"

* And this:

"I'm the guy who makes it rain in the desert."

Jeffrey Gundlach Had A Little Party Last Night

December 7, 1941. November 22, 1963. December 4, 2009. All dates of such historical and cultural significance that if you asked someone where they were that day, they'd surely be able to tell you. Because they weren't just any old days; they were moments when everything changed. The bombing of Pearl Harbor; the assassination of JFK; and, perhaps most importantly, the firing of Jeffrey Gundlach from the TWC Group, which had taken issue with his decision to start his own firm, and choose to express that anger by first escorting him out of the building and second raiding his offices, where they found an amount of adult films and sexual devices that suggested Gundlach was operating an online wholesale sex shop distributor and keeping the inventory at work. TCW also sued its former employee and at the time, rather than roll over and take it which is something he would never do, Gundlach vowed to fight back and clear up the misconception that TCW was the victim in the situation. On the contrary, JG told people, the real victim was US taxpayers who were "promised" Gundlach's services and had to settled for a subpar bond manager when his relationship with the firm was terminated. Gundlach ultimately emerged victorious* and perhaps even more satisfying to The Pope was the number of TCW employees and clients who followed him en masse to his new company, the aptly named DoubleLine Capital. We're not sure how you celebrated last night's hugely significant anniversary, but we do know how Gundlach did:
