They probably need it to cover bail.

The other funny thing:

Blackstone, which in April sold Extended Stay America, a budget business hotel chain, to Lightstone, a real estate investment group, for $8bn, already had global assets totalling 100,000 rooms.
So, Blackstone sold something to Lightstone. Yeah... that doesn't sound like some form of collusion or a very strange coincidence!!
