Businessman Roni Mana took to social media on Saturday to threaten the Netanyahu family with a lawsuit for "millions," Maariv reported.   
"It's a good thing I kept all the invoices," he said, "I don't go to war without being ready! We will bring 200 witnesses…it will be interesting!" 
He blamed the Netanyahu family for wrecking two cars he owned, abusing his drivers, as well as accepting clothes and jewelry he allegedly bought for them. 
The son of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Yair, attacked him on social media on Saturday, calling him a "pitiful leech"  who had been "living on the blood of my family for 20 years, today it's over."    

Reporter Ben Caspit retweeted the post with a note saying "it turns out they were the ones sponsoring Mana all these years." 
Once an intimate confidant of the Netanyahu family, Mana spoke on 103 FM in December and said Sara Netanyahu, wife Netanyahu, "ruined her husband and the now." 
"They can sue me for libel," he said, "as they had [reporter] Igal Sarna."
Sarna was sued over a Facebook post in which he claimed Sara Netanyahu forced her husband out of the car during a drive within Israel. He was taken to court and forced to pay NIS 115 thousand after the court ruled the post had been false.
