Kim Dotcom has responded to the news that his estranged wife, Mona Dotcom, has found herself a new man.

Dotcom tweeted saying "I helped & hired a 17yr old troubled kid to play Xbox with Mona's brothers. 1 year ago he decided to play with Mona."

The 26-year-old mother-of-five is dating 20-year-old Jeriel Manapori and has bought the Waiuku video gamer an $80,000 Mercedes Benz, reports Woman's Day.

Mona married Dotcom in July 2009 but left the 41-year-old German internet entrepreneur and founder of Megaupload and Mega last May by fleeing in a golf cart in the middle of the night.
