I Am Annaliesje (Part 4) – Shanghai Tunnels

(Annaliesje’s story in her own words continues -)

Then there was another crisis with Robb…the event organiser, Shanghai Tunnels, got Robb a business class instead of first class  plane ticket.

Robb totally lost it…

IMG_0297.PNG

He threatened to cancel the whole event so they ended up buying him a first class ticket to Portland…

Remember Shanghai tunnels is a non-profit and this was a charity event.  

Robb was to call the shots or the whole thing would be off.  

IMG_0298.PNG
The “Rob calm down” response is Robb’s copy-paste of Nita’s message to him.

Also, his promises of promoting the event did not happen…he would share the event only one time on FB and Twitter.  

I spent my time promoting it but refused to make anymore radio show or TV interviews because of what he did with the radio show.

Constantly sticking my neck out for Robb, which eventually caused things to never be the same again between me and the people at the Shanghai Tunnels.    

Robb would blow his fuse yet again.  

I was trying to promote the Shanghai Tunnels event, so I messaged a bunch of my FB friends in the paranormal groups. I did not really know them personally,  but they were friends on my FB…

One guy messaged me back…he had a paranormal group in Italy…he said his group would share the event, and he made a comment that I was so beautiful.  

I messaged Robb the group’s name from my messenger and asked if he knew these guys…

I was so happy…I attached the message but it also included that comment of me being beautiful…

All of a sudden..I get voice messages from Robb…

He threatened this poor guy and sounded crazy…and drunk…

Voice message from Robb which he said he sent the Italian guy –

He called me that night and said that he loved me so much…that when he is here in a few days he is going to make it up to me…

…the time when he did not call me on Christmas just texted me Christmas night and said Merry Christmas baby…I love you

…and did not call me on New Year’s Eve

…and did not call me on my birthday…just a text that night…happy birthday

IMG_3120

…also Valentine’s Day…nothing…no call or text

…all the things that he did to hurt me

…he was going to make it up to his wife to be, when he gets to Portland to be with me.

IMG_3258.JPG

Robb would arrive 3 days early to spend more time with me and meet my family for the first time…my sister, cousins and more close friends.

We called it the Indonesian party and I stressed it had to be secret…

It would be a disaster…Robb was rude and my friends and sister…cousins..could not stand him…He was not friendly.  

We ended fighting…we fought the rest of the time…then we made up…repeat…

The  Shanghai Tunnels event ended up being a complete failure…very little tickets sold and Robb really did not want to be there, he kept saying it all night to me.  

He held it together though, charming as he was with his words...with his speeches…even funny at times…One girl asked him if he had a girlfriend..and he said yes…I love my girlfriend…Robb did donate money to the fund…he said if anyone donated money, tell him how much and he would match it.

I gave the scheduled speech about Human Trafficking that I was supposed to give but ended up losing it, it was extremely hard for me and Robb saved me and finished the speech, he could be so sweet at times.  He took me shopping and bought me a lot of things…and told me we were going to be going on a vacation and that he wanted to meet my mom and dad…

Dad films a lot with Outdoor Channel and Robb was hoping to meet Dad and talk...He also said that we needed to find a bigger apartment together and  we needed to start planning.

Robb left that Sunday morning…

…it was Easter…

I was at mass when I got a strange text from him saying that a crazy bitch from Australia was out to get him…

I am Annaliesje (Part 3) – Robb, Your Wife Called

(Annaliesje’s story in her own words, continues – )

I ended up seeing a psychic medium who was also a good friend of mine at the time.  My friends went with me; it was more like an intervention than a reading…they were all worried about this relationship and also my mental health and physical health.

I was working full time, tunnel tours, managing making my boyfriend happy and training to be a fitness instructor.  I ended up losing one of my really good friends that night because she said that she could not take this anymore with Robb…We were friends for about 8 years.  

I ignored all their advice even though I knew deep down they were right…I wanted and loved my boyfriend, I knew I could change him for the better. My health started to deteriorate, regardless I still kept on…

Robb informed me that he had an event and that we would not be able to talk, which I was used to…sometimes he would go away missing for periods of time…

IMG_3199.JPG

…the longest was when he moved back to Florida from Saudi.  

IMG_3259.JPG

I was not only stressed with my relationship with Robb, still suffering from scars from the human trafficking fiasco and constant mean texts and bullying on social media about being a slut, a liar and an attention getter (I still do to this very day), but that week that Robb was at an event, I was to take my fitness certification and also audition that Friday…

Friday came, and I got it…I passed my certification and landed the job of being a fitness instructor at a gym…I was so happy…I took a selfie in the mirror at the gym where I got hired…I was sooooooooooo  happy…I texted my boyfriend, Robb , at the time, thinking he would not get it until that Sunday…

IMG_1729

I was shocked to get a text quickly back saying he was happy for me…that he loved me and in a few more days…we would be together…

My happiness turned to devastation within 30 minutes from that text.  As I was driving home from the gym, so happy and on cloud 9…I got a strange text from one of the Shanghai Tunnels volunteers that schedules tours and events…she said, I need you to call me now…

I texted her back saying that I was driving…she asked me to pull over and to call her…thinking something horrible happened, I quickly called her…

She said, I want you to know I got a call from Robb’s WIFE…I then chuckled , I actually remember this whole conversation…I said, oh you mean Robb’s EX WIFE…she said, no, his WIFE.  

Once again, my heart sank as it did often in this relationship…She had called looking for Robb and said he needed to come home and help with the kids, that her mother passed away in South Africa.  

She then said to Robb’s wife, I was not aware that Robb was married, she said, yes, they were married but it is probably on its way out.  She told her that indeed Robb did have an event with them but it was not for another week and that her understanding was that he was at another event this weekend.

She did not tell Robb’s wife that in fact that he would be coming early that week to stay with me.   I ended up throwing up and getting sick.  

Robb knew I was Catholic and a Christian and I don’t believe in adultery…I am not judging people out there, I am just saying I don’t want any part of it and Robb told me he was divorced.  

The situation Robb had said is that they had to share a house together otherwise she would be in the street and had nowhere to go and this was best for the kids.  They had separate rooms and if I did not believe him, he would furnish pictures of it and that I could speak to her and she would tell me the same.

I then tried to call Robb over and over…leaving him messages

Then, another shock as Robb’s wife ended up messaging one of my friends in the paranormal and he reached out to me and said what the hell…

But I never got a message from her…just my friends and people from the Shanghai Tunnels.  

That Sunday, Robb called back. I ignored his calls, I was just sick.  

He was mad at me and said that we have nothing if I do not trust him and that she only said wife because if she would have said EX WIFE…no one would help her.  I ended up believing him as did the volunteer I was just speaking of.  

He was good at saving himself…he is a charmer…He can make you even believe the world is a triangle…He is a great story teller…

I Am Annaliesje (Part 2)

The day finally came, and I got to be with my boyfriend. Robb flew into town to see me in December of 2015.  When I saw him, I was a little shocked; he looked so different, I know now, that the selfies he was sending me, were very old..he did not look the same.

Even so, I was so happy…right away…we left to go to my apartment, I got to take him home…my boyfriend.  On the way, Robb wanted to go to the liquor store because we were heading to the coast that next day…the owner recognized Robb from Ghost Hunters International and got his autograph…we headed home…I was so happy…

The next day we headed for the coast and had a gorgeous view in a gorgeous hotel room…our balcony was basically right on haystack rock, very famous in Oregon.  We ended drinking and we talked so much, we talked for hours…I loved him so much…then we headed to a restaurant there at the coast.  

Robb had left to use the restroom and an old couple approached me and asked if that was Robb Demarest; I said yes.  They asked if they could get his autograph, I told them that I was sure he would not mind.  

When Robb came back, his mood had changed, he seemed agitated and wanted to leave the restaurant…

I took the couple over to Robb and introduced them to him…he was rude and mean to them…it was crazy…

I started seeing this side of Robb, one minute nice and sweet calling me baby and the next minute mad.  

As we left to walk back to our room, I asked why he was so rude and he was just telling me to SHUT THE FUCK UP and SHUT UP OR HE WILL QUIET ME.  

I started crying which made him even more mad at me.  

For hours I cried as he sat on the chair and drank in our room…I ended up crying myself to sleep...

When I woke up, he was so drunk and came over to the bed and said, Baby, I am sorry, let’s just forget this, I love you and I don’t want to hurt you, you are my wife…

He is actually the nicest drunk and very sweet when he is super drunk…I noticed this that night and from there on.  We ended up having sex all night…whatever he wanted…I did everything that he wanted, comfortable or not…I wanted to make him happy.  

The next morning we woke up…I  wanted to take pictures by the ocean, pictures of us. We had a few together, but he wanted me to also just take pictures of him by himself and more so.

IMG_1314.JPG

He reminded me again and again, that I was not to post these pictures of us.

That night, we drove back to Portland. I was going to introduce Robb to my Shanghai Tunnels family, as I used to say and call them.  It would be the first time he would take a tour and meet everyone.  

Robb did not seem very impressed and was bored.  He kept saying he wanted us to go home.  

The last night was the night he would meet my friends.  My friends would later tell me how he made fun of me and was very rude behind my back, but they wanted to support my boyfriend and knew how happy and in love that I was that they just put up with it but secretly, I would find out later, that they could not stand him.

Robb would then leave and I would not see him for 3 months.  We were still messaging and I was still sending him 1000’s of pictures and videos.  

He told me that he loved me and that I was his baby, his wife to be.  It is not a secret that I am a human trafficking survivor and Robb knew my story. 

Robb wanted to do an event at the Shanghai Tunnels and said that it would help to raise awareness of human trafficking.  

I talked to my paranormal investigator friend Debbie Constantino a few months back before all this, and she wanted to help me as well and said she would do this event with Robb, but sadly she ended up passing away.

Another thing that I was distraught over…I thought it was strange when Debbie had passed  away that Robb said that they were good friends and knew each other well…but when I mentioned Robb to Debbie back then, she cautioned me to be careful and was not too happy I was with him, but she never went into detail about why.

I never did tell Robb this, I did not want to hurt his feelings.  Now that she has passed, I will never know her story…but I can only guess…

We then started to get the event in motion.  I had a few friends in the radio business.  I asked if they could have Robb and me on to promote this event.  Robb confirmed that the date was fine and he would love to do the interview and would do it for me.

The day of the broadcast, I confirmed with Robb on messenger , that we were to go on air in 2 hours…

I ended up doing the whole thing by myself, he never called in despite our many tries to call him from the show.

I cried so hard that night and left him a message crying and how could he do this to me…my friends, family…even my boss was listening in…wondering what happened…I was humiliated…an hour after the show he simply messaged I love you…see you in 2 weeks.

After that weekend he kept calling and I would just ignore him…he left me messages saying that he could not believe I was that upset, that a lot of people just skip out of radio shows and that no one reminded him…it was a nightmare…I, of course, forgave him but I was simply going down hill emotionally…

Robb put me on a emotional roller coaster…always mad at me, then loved me…back and forth…demanded pictures and videos and monitoring my FB.

I am Annaliesje (Part 1)

In my own words…I am Annaliesje.

Once upon a time, he broke me in a million pieces; it felt like tiny knives stabbing me over and over.  That part is gone now.  That was a little over a year ago, a week after Easter. Something I will never forget. A permanent scar, but at least this bleeding wound has healed. I am not perfect or innocent and have never claimed to be…I am human and I make mistakes.

img_3000.jpg

I met Robb Demarest in March of 2015.  I had been training to become a fitness instructor, my dream job.  A Facebook junkie that I am, I was constantly looking at my favorite newsfeeds and liking my favorites, at times, making comments as most people do on Facebook.  

I still remember that day, It was a Saturday morning, before leaving for training at the gym. I liked and commented on a few things on a page that Robb was included in; I can’t remember on what but I got so excited when he liked my comment.  

All of a sudden, I got an instant message from Robb.  He said simply, Indonesian?

My heart skipped, I was so excited.  

I had been loving the paranormal shows and watched them all, since they had came out at the time.  I always loved Robb and the fact that he spoke his mind and that he seemed strong and educated and had so much experience in the paranormal, but it was not really a crush on Robb, at first, I did not feel anything like that for him, but mainly a friend. Yup, that’s true.  

We exchanged a couple more messages but mainly my nationality and my involvement with the Portland Underground (Shanghai Tunnels). I told him that I was a tour guide and told him of a few things that I had experienced down there.  After a couple more messages, I had told him I had to leave for the gym.  

I messaged my phone number and told him that he could message me anytime, he messaged saying, I am usually JUST ONLINE…I did not think too much about that message at that time.  

I finished my class at the gym and noticed that he friend requested me…I was so excited and happy, I accepted quickly.

We messaged each other that night and from there it was almost daily.  He usually would message at night or early morning.  We started sharing little personal things about each other.  I told him about the friends that I had that turned against me, being a human trafficking survivor and some of the strange things that were happening to me paranormal wise.  

That I was seeing a psychic medium and had a ghost attachment named Nina from the Shanghai Tunnels.  

He asked if I had any kids and I was slightly taken back when he asked me if I would ever get married again or have kids.

It had only been a week.  I told him NO WAY…

He told me that he would make it his goal to change my mind about kids and marriage, that when he meets the right one, he wanted to have another baby and be married.  

He had told me that he was DIVORCED and that he had 2 kids.  

Almost daily, we continued messaging each other.  But, I started to freak out a little bit because everything we did was ONLINE…

I told him, should I be worried about RED FLAGS? Why won’t you call me.  

He then said that he was sorry, he did not live in the States but in Saudi.  He did not have a phone, it was too expensive to use it there, so everything had to be online.  

He then called me using the messenger phone, I still remember when I heard his voice for the first time, I got chills, I was so excited, I started to really fall for him.  

We continued to talk of our stories and goals in life.  He helped me through things that I was going through, the aftermath of Human Trafficking, also, I had an agent at the time, that was steering me in the wrong direction of filming and movies that almost ended up down a wrong path in LA.

I was very naïve and one thing I will have to say, Robb did save me on that.  Little did I know he was seasoning me to believe in him and trust him with some of my very darkest times and personal accounts.

Everything happened very quickly, it was like a whirlwind for me.  Within a few weeks, things were getting serious as we started sending cute little pictures to each other, mostly I would, he maybe had sent a total of 5 pictures of himself to me and no, no nudes.  

He would joke at first and say that he can’t see much with all that clothes on.  

I started showing my bra a few times, like a sneak peek and my lacey underthings.  He would give me the best compliments and say how beautiful and sexy that I was and THAT was his…I almost choked, he said, that I was his??  

If I showed him a boob, he would say, that’s mine.  I started getting more brave and sending more pictures.  We would call them Robb Selfies.  If I did not send one in a while, he would say, I need a Robb Selfie.  

We continued to chat online and everything had to be secret.  

He told me that he was a private person and that he did not want anyone know that we were together, that he had to have something at least to stay private and that he had a judgmental fan base.

When I would post things, I would always would call him GREEN HEART, that way Robb would know I was talking about him…Example.  I love my green heart, I love him…His favorite color was green so I just would type the green heart, it was our thing…a code.  

IMG_0216

Things suddenly changed after a few months, sometimes he would get mad at me for posting my gym selfies and he would not talk to me for a day or two.

If I did not answer when he tried to call me on messenger, he would get upset with me.  

I worked full time and then had gym training. I was also a tour guide and a paranormal investigator;  I was on alert 24/7 by Robb.

Constantly looking at my phone…worried I would be missing a text or call from him.  

This started to affect my job and my friends started getting worried about me and began asking questions and questioning this relationship.  

At first, Robb was upset because I told 3 of my closest friends about us, but I told him that I had to, they were my best friends. I would end up losing them all to this day except for my sister.

He hated them all, he only liked my friends that were married including my sister.  We started talking about him coming to Portland Oregon and seeing the Shanghai Tunnels and that we were going to have time together and go to The Oregon Coast.  

Robb started to call me, HIS L’IL BABY and he called me ONA..instead of Annaliesje or Annaka.  

One day he would be loving and sweet and the next mad at me.

Sometimes he would call me on the messenger phone, drunk…so drunk I could not understand him.  

I started turning down my plans with my friends and running home instead to be on the phone (messenger) with Robb sending him picture after picture…he started requesting videos…

Yes, I did that too.  Anything Robb would ask, I would do.

HE would tell me what he wanted me to do in the videos and pictures…

I am 100% telling the truth that I had sent him 1000’s and 1000’s of pictures and videos within that year we were dating…yes, we were now a couple, as he put it.  

I was his baby and his wife to be, he would say.  

He would send me tons of those online stickers cartoons on messenger, most of them were a picture of a girl pregnant, he wanted us to have a baby together, I said no, I always kept saying no and that I couldn’t.   

IMG_3154

At first it was a funny joke, but it got tiresome for me…I told him to stop with the baby thing…He said nope, that I was going to be the mother of his baby.

IMG_3203.JPG

I was the one, that I was spoken for. He told me most psychic  mediums are fake, but one told him that he was going to meet his true love in December and she would end up pregnant with his son.   

My heart sank..I was so in love with Robb Demarest.  He would even say I was going to have his last name someday.

Meet Woman #7 – Annaliesje’s Story

I wrote about Woman #7 a year ago in Why Are You Doing This To Robb Demarest?  Annaliesje is now ready to go public.

In all honesty, when someone shared this Facebook picture of yet another woman who might be in a relationship with Robb Demarest, I didn’t have the stomach to contact her. She looked besotted and naive, and I was in no mood to take more abuse from those in denial of Robb Demarest’s behaviour.

0

I went to bed on 31 March after giving an interview to The Daily Mail. I didn’t realise the reporter would track her down during the night.

I woke up to her messages, which broke my heart –

I would find out later that Annaliesje had been dating Robb since March 2015. Between March 2015 – March 2016 (when my story broke) –

  • He proposed marriage and babies to Woman #1 in February 2016
  • He came back into my life (Woman #2) in January 2016 and talked about moving to Australia to be with me, then settled on a romantic catch-up in Vietnam scheduled for August 2016
  • He was engaged to Woman #3 until November 2015 (then tried to resume the relationship weeks later but got rejected)
  • He wanted Woman #4 to book a hotel room for a rendezvous in June 2015
  • He tried to get back together with Woman #5 in February 2016
  • He was planning a wedding with Woman #6 until December 2015 when she found out about his travel plans to Portland to see Annaliesje

Robb didn’t know I knew all this when Annaliesje read my story. After all, the New Idea Magazine exposé concerned only 3 known women, and they revolved around the time he was filming Haunting:Australia in 2013.

In other words, it’s an old story and part of a less-than-proud past to which he’s hinted in previous conversations, so you’re already prepared for some of the dirt a jealous ex-girlfriend might dish out. Of course, he’s now a completely changed man, and you’re responsible for his redemption because you’re just that special.

I’d heard it all before –

Medium 1 - 7

Thus began Robb Demarest’s campaign to discredit me to Annaliesje –

Claiming that this was ancient history and we never dated –

Suggesting they take a break until this whole thing blows over –

When he ran out of excuses, and perhaps thinking he still had a hold on her –

Robb Demarest’s Monica Lewinsky moment –

Annaliesje is prepared to tell her story. I hope it resonates with other women out there who continue to be played by Robb Demarest. There’s a lot of material to plough through so I’m breaking it into multiple installments. Stay tuned.

Letter to Robb Demarest re: Police Report

Dear Robb,

I believe being a police officer is one of the toughest jobs in the world.

Cops put their own safety and reputation on the line each and every day they are at work while protecting the communities they serve.

I am in awe of their bravery and honour and am eternally grateful for their professionalism and courage under dangerous and stressful situations.

I’d like to personally thank you, therefore, for the comic relief you must have provided Australian law enforcement when you reported my website, RobbDemarestCheats.com, to them.

I’m not sure if anyone at my local police station had ever heard of you (tenuous celebrity and all) but I’ve no doubt they are now up to speed with your track record with women. So thanks again for the laughs (not to mention the spike in website visitors).

By the way, this came into my inbox via an anonymous contributor overnight; I thought it was pretty clever, what do you think?

Your Baby (well, one of them anyway),

Jackie xxx

Response to Robb Demarest’s Lawyer

Dear Mr. Hooper, I write in response to your letter indicating your representation of Mr. Robb Demarest with regards to my website, RobbDemarestCheats.com.

As you can appreciate, I have no interest in breaking any laws while exercising my right to free speech to warn other vulnerable, single mothers about Mr. Demarest’s behaviour.

My interviews with some of Australia’s biggest media outlets were carefully vetted by their respective lawyers prior to publication/TV airing. My subsequent write-ups on my website are a combination of opinion (which you agree I’m entitled to), and my reporting of interviews with other women who started coming forward, backed up by full transcripts.

I’d like to thank you, therefore, for helpfully pointing out that I’m opening myself up to prosecution in areas of my website where I have made allegations that you feel are unsubstantiated.

Extract from your letter –

While you are entitled to your opinion, when you allude to unprovable slanderous accusations you are exposing yourself to legal action. As example, you allege as facts that he was stalking someone, that he drove someone to suicidal ideations, that he is attached to twelve evil spirits and that he strangled someone. These are not opinions. These allege specific acts on his part.

Re: the examples you gave, I have gone back and extracted portions of my interviews with the other women, where these claims were made. I’ve inserted them into my original posts to substantiate them and cover myself legally.

Here’s the list and accompanying screenshots for your easy reference –

  1. Stalking –

stalking.jpg

Woman #8 – I had to block him on social media because he would stalk me. Crazy.

2) He drove someone to suicidal ideations –

a.) this from one of the women –

I saved everything from my phone I’m putting them in files when I had first told you about saving my pictures I was in a really bad place

I was even thinking about asking my lawyer to do (a) will and I was gonna will you all that information just in case something happened to me I didn’t think I was gonna mentally make all this

b) This was from a conversation with a counsellor who spoke with the same woman, who subsequently reported back to me with her permission –

kathysuicidal.png

Counsellor – 

you did a good thing letting her know

i believe if she had been told this in 6 months time she (would) be very suicidal

c) this from another woman –

null

He nearly ruined my life for my children

If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be here x

3) He’s attached to twelve evil spirits. Funnily enough, Mr. Hooper, this actually came from Robb himself.

Here was the original conversation –

null

Robb Demarest – 

I have had a bunch of psychics tell me how many ghostly attachments I currently have. I’ve heard between 8-12. I figure it would just be “the more the merrier” now.

In fact, it was something of a running joke between him and me. See this –

null

Robb Demarest – 

As far as the attachments, I’m not sure I buy it. It could be true…

————————————————

And this –

null

Jackie M –

maybe the hangers-on spirits are messing with you

Robb Demarest – 

Or my surpressed (sp) desires to see your clothes rack were manifesting in the subconscious

4) He strangled someone –

null

He tried to sort of strangle me during

Then realised

He wouldn’t let me leave till 6.30

Also, since you brought up the matter of using recordings of someone without their consent; extract from your letter –

Furthermore, you have also violated statutes prohibiting use of recorded conversations without consent exposing yourself to additional criminal and civil sanctions

if you could point your client to this particular extract from http://www.lawstuff.org.au and similarly remind him about his vulnerability to criminal and civil sanctions, that would be great –

null

It’s NEVER ok to photograph or record someone’s private parts or private activities without their knowledge or permission – http://www.lawstuff.org.au

In relation to this conversation (sexually explicit content blacked out) –

recorded me.png

 

Robb Demarest – 

I have pics of you 

Woman – Not dirty ones

.

.

Robb Demarest –

Woman – You recorded me!

Robb Demarest – Just a picture

Just to reiterate, the law, as stated above, covers “just a picture”.

I have been wanting to confront Mr. Demarest in a public forum for over a year now, but he has yet to respond to any media regarding this story.

As a matter of fact The Dr. Phil Show is still waiting for him to accept their recent invitation to appear on the programme with both myself and some of the other women I’ve written about.

Considering how Mr. Demarest is constantly trying to get on television, I can only imagine he’s missed the invitation.

If you could maybe ask him to check his spam folder for the email, that would be greatly appreciated.

If The Dr. Phil Show is not his cup of tea, I’m ready to face him in court here in Australia, though I do appreciate your pointing out that my transgression can lead to 3 years’ jail >>

While my advice to him includes filing a formal complaint with the Sydney Prosecutor’s Office regarding violations of Australia’s cyber-harassment statutes and directing his legal counsel in Sydney to pursue civil sanctions and monetary damages…

I would defer to the prosecutor’s office in this regard, my understanding is that it carries a maximum sentence of three years in jail.

I guess a statement like that has the effect of stifling free speech and scaring off most victims from ever speaking out.

(Especially one who is the sole carer of a disabled toddler. Who incidentally spent the first 7 months of his life in hospital, while the man who wanted to adopt him as his son sneaked off and proposed to another woman while pushing me to pitch TV shows for him from my son’s hospital bed. But I digress.)

But then most of his victims aren’t Hakka (inside joke – Robb would appreciate it).

I’d like to advise Mr. Demarest that any lawsuit from him will inevitably lead to a countersuit from me. Also, I’d like to refer him to the following while he’s contemplating such action –

null

A public figure (such as a politician, celebrity, or business leader) cannot base a lawsuit on incorrect harmful statements unless there is proof that the writer or publisher acted with actual malice (knowledge of falsity or reckless disregard for the truth). 

(Source – Wikipedia)

And this from http://www.insidecounsel.com , since you brought up your chat with “UK lawyers” –

null

David Beckham – A magazine printed an article claiming that Beckham had hired a prostitute, so he sued. Since Beckham could not prove the magazine acted maliciously, he lost the court ruling and his $25 million lawsuit was tossed out. 

(Source – http://www.insidecounsel.com)

In the face of 5+ years of transcripts and multiple witness testimonies, I think Mr. Demarest would struggle to find that I acted with any knowledge of “falsity or reckless disregard for the truth”.

If anything, most people who have interacted with me know that my pedantry borders on the legendary.

And of course, as I have said in the past, I will delete my website as soon as Mr. Demarest retires permanently from public life.

I know you cleverly cited cyberharassment and cyberstalking laws as opposed to ones related to “slander”, but I’d like to think it follows the same “vibe” >>

Thanks again for your letter, Mr. Hooper; also by the way, it was delivered right in the middle of my live broadcast on Indonesian Ayam Goreng (www.Twitch.tv/JackieMFoodFollow me there for great Asian recipes), causing a 5-minute interruption and effectively making the content useless for future reshares.

I get that these things happen, but it’d be wonderful if Mr. Demarest would consider compensating me for the chicken and herbs I used in that episode.

$8.50 would about cover it; he can send it to my Paypal account. Have a wonderful day, sir.

Yours respectfully,

Jackie M.
