Fact Or Faked? The Robb Demarest Apology

Is Robb Demarest’s apology sincere? What do you think?

This is just a small sample of some of the comments that filtered through in response to my last two posts –

“A leopard never changes its spots”

“He has apologised because he has been backed into a corner and knows he’s being watched”

“His letter is stupid”

And here’s an email I received –

==================================================

Dear Jackie,

I’m not sure if you will ever read this email, but since I’ve been following your posts about Robb for a couple of years, I felt compelled to write.

First, a little background about me. I used to be a huge GHI fan and admit to having a bit of a celeb crush on Robb. That’s the reason why I Google’d his name one day and came upon your site. I was simply astounded reading your story and those of the other women. But I immediately believed everything you wrote for a simple reason: there was always something about him that seemed “off.”

I used to leave posts on his Facebook account and was pretty surprised that he responded to a number of them. Most celebrities don’t give you the time of day, and that’s what I’ve come to accept. His responses took my fandom to the next level. Looking back, that’s a nice way of manipulating a person – these guys know that if you give a fan a tiny bit of attention, they will just feel even crazier about you. Around that time, I opened a Google+ account.

Not really understanding how the whole thing worked, I left it alone until Robb actually asked me to join his “circle.” Despite my crush, I was happily married (at the time), and getting the invite from him just gave me a creepy feeling. I accepted his invite, but I stopped posting and interacting with him. When I read your blog, I was really glad I did. I began to see that that’s how he managed to engage with so many female fans, eventually developing romantic yet twisted relationships with them. He seems to like Asian or other ethnic women the most (I’m also Asian). By the way, you are absolutely stunning, and I can see why he fell for you.

From reading your blog, I could see that Robb is a narcissist, as well as a sociopath. He had to be as most normal people couldn’t juggle that many relationships in that many countries, promising marriage and babies and a happily ever after to a multitude of women. I can barely keep track of my own relatives and friends. How he managed to juggle so many women is beyond me. Only an evil, fucked up individual could do something like that so successfully, and for so long.

I never thought he would ever admit to being wrong and actually apologizing. I’m sure you didn’t either. As astounded as I was first finding out the truth about him, I was just as astounded reading his apology to you. If you decide to accept his apology, that is your right, and I will stand by whatever decision you make. Even though I don’t know you, however, as a woman who has supported you from afar, I just have to say that I don’t have a good feeling about the situation. I don’t completely buy his apology. He’s like the criminal who’s not sorry for committing the crime…he’s just very very sorry he got caught.

Your web site very much was a public service announcement, not only for female fans of Robb but for women everywhere who are in a vulnerable state. I have since separated from my husband and was thinking about dating again, but I decided not to take the plunge right away, knowing that I tend to be very naive and gullible when it comes to men. I could have easily fallen for someone like Robb. I tend to trust too easily if anyone shows me a modicum of kindness and attention. Reading your blog made me a bit more wise to reality in general – that few things are as they seem, and that most people have skeletons in their closets. Your blog has helped me navigate the world a bit more cautiously.

I think ultimately your web site helped him face the music, so to speak. He probably lost potential gigs because of it. He probably has had less success manipulating women because of it. He has had to face the disappointment of his children because of it. He had no choice but to recognize that he was found out and that he could no longer get away with his bullshit. Therefore, he had little choice but to make a public apology, hoping to garner the sympathy of those around him.

In my mind, he apologized because he had no choice. And reading the responses by women on his apology posts were disgusting…they were quick to say what a great guy he is for owning his mistakes (without probably even knowing the background), and they were even quicker to think even MORE highly of him for doing so. Genius move, don’t you think?

HIs apology seemed so weak. So vague. I think if he was truly sorry and honest about wanting to become a better man (think of all the abusive assholes before him who have said the same thing after being caught – think Chris Brown and Harvey Weinstein), I’d have to hear him say in detail EXACTLY what he did to you and all those other women.

I want him to tell his fans that dated multiple women at the same time, promising them marriage and babies and the world. I want him to tell his fans how he lied to each of those women, and how he did abusive things to them in bed against their will. I wonder then if his fans will continue telling him what a great guy he is.

His 15 minutes of fame have long been over. You originally said that you wouldn’t stop going after Robb until he leaves his “celebrity” life behind. I think you should stand by that. As long as there are women who are enamored by his past celebrity, someone like him will NEVER change.

You can’t suddenly not be a narcissist. You can’t suddenly not be a sociopath. How does one make such a drastic 180 change as he is claiming to make? I just don’t buy that he is a “changed man.” I think he is a cornered man, and his only way out of the corner is to appear humble, make a feeble apology, and then gain the forgiveness and love of people who don’t know the full story. PLEASE don’t take down your web site. Let it be a permanent warning for women. It helped me. Think of all the other thousands you probably helped.
.
.
.
.
Please continue to be cautious, Jackie. I wish you and your adorable son well.

=======================================================================

As with everything else connected to this website, there were a lot of backroom discussions that took place before, during and after the “apology”; enough for me to fill a book.

Woman #13, whose story I’ve yet to tell, stepped in to mediate between the two of us. Through her efforts, Robb and I finally talked after 27 months of open warfare. We talked for countless hours almost every day for 3 weeks.

We are no longer talking.

Stay tuned to find out what happened, as I will be sharing transcripts of my chats with a number of key players over that period. Then you can draw your own conclusions about the Robb Demarest apology.

(ps. for those who don’t know, Fact or Faked was a TV show, the star of which Robb attacked publicly on Facebook when he and I broke up in 2016. That’s another story for another day.)

BTW, I’m not sure if the email writer above saw this specific comment on Robb’s initial apology on Facebook, but it is typical of the kind of support he was receiving from his fans. This infuriated many behind the scenes, whose comments calling him out were being deleted.

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.

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” >>

(Scene from Australia’s all-time favourite David vs Goliath lawyer movie – you should try and catch it. It’s hysterical.) >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJuXIq7OazQ

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.

Jackie M vs The Paranormal

First up, an update on the Robb Demarest story, then I’ll launch into the main topic of this post.

  1. What I’ve shared is only the tip of the iceberg. Mr. Demarest knows it. I believe that’s why he’s gone into hiding.  Last I checked, this remained his last post on Facebook –

kathy.png
The timing is not a coincidence. (Talk to me if you want the backstory on this statement.)

Based on the Likes and comments on that post, it’s clear hundreds of people either still do not know about this story, or they’re so dazzled by his “celebrity” that they don’t care.

The fact that Mr. Demarest has gone quiet is a good start, but in that same update he said he might start posting again in 2017, presumably when all this has died down. He said as much in a voicemail to one of the women when the story first broke in late March 2016, indicating he would lie low until that “crazy Aussie woman” (yes, that would be me) gets bored.

He’s also kept his Facebook account active, which allows him to continue to talk to potential victims (which I know for a fact he’s doing).

I guess he couldn’t resist another stab at the limelight because not too long after that post, Mr. Demarest decided to accept a nomination for some favourite ghost hunter award run by a paranormal group. To support his nomination, he posted a video on their Facebook page, telling you why you should vote for him.  Thankfully, enough people knew about this scandal to contact the organisers. They removed his entry.

What do these latest developments mean? It means you need to continue to spread the word about Robb Demarest. Lives have been and will continue to be ruined because of him. Women have wasted precious reproductive years holding out for this man who groomed us to have his babies. Simultaneously. Got us to plan weddings and living arrangements. You need to stop enabling him or pandering to his ego in the hope that some of his celebrity will brush off on you. 

If you’re a first time visitor to this site, be sure to check out some of the earlier stories to get a full picture of how everything unfolded. I can appreciate that individual posts may seem disjointed and leave you with the impression that we’re just a bunch of angry, scorned women. I’m sorry if you feel that way.  For the sake of truth you need to remove all biases as you read them.

——————————————————-

2. I want to talk at length about fake psychics, real psychics and the dark realm of the paranormal but it’s probably outside the scope of this website, so I’ll just condense everything in this post. I understand most of my audience is plugged into the paranormal world so this will turn some people against me. Hear me out.

If there’s one good thing that has come out of this sordid affair, it’s the fact that in the process of investigating the stories and trying to wrap my head around all the elements, I’ve decided that the Bible was right when it warned in no uncertain terms about dabbling in the paranormal (Leviticus 19:31, Deuteronomy 18:9-12 etc.). I had started doing so several years ago by consulting psychics (long story, yes, go right ahead and judge me) and by being involved in a couple of ghost hunting shows.

p1070881

Filming in Malaysia for Asia:Food.Travel.Mystery

All the psychics I consulted assured me Robb was the real deal, and that he was my “soulmate”. One of the other women similarly saw a psychic about him, and apparently he was her “soulmate”; as with my readings, they didn’t pick up on his rampant infidelity. Not one bit.

To this day, only one psychic has contacted me directly who said he had a very bad feeling about Robb before all this came out and that he tried to warn his friend (Woman #7).

Many of those who continue to support him are supposed to be psychics; just check out his Facebook page.

Go look up which psychics continue to do events with him. If they don’t know about this scandal or they don’t believe the overwhelming evidence (none of which Mr. Demarest refutes, by the way), does it mean they are fake? Or just morally compromised enablers of his bad behaviour? 

How about this theory (I actually have a couple more but let’s go with this) –

Let’s give the psychics the benefit of the doubt. Let’s assume none of them are frauds (the ones I consulted were all highly recommended). Is it possible the “real” psychics are themselves deliberately deceived by whatever spirit guides they use?

If you believe that they’re malevolent spirits (masquerading as benign entities), it’d make sense that they would want to wreak havoc and destruction in as many lives as possible. Remember, through their continued association with Mr. Demarest, some of these women claim they were driven to mental and emotional breakdowns and suicidal thoughts.

Transcript of accuser’s account

Then there’s the misfortune that seems to follow those associated with the genre. I know of 3 television paranormal people directly linked to Mr. Demarest that have died premature deaths in the last 12-18 months – one brutally murdered, one via suicide and one in mysterious circumstances. I knew two of them personally.

I’ve seen strange scratches on Mr. Demarest’s body. He used to talk about seeing shadows in his house.  According to Mr. Demarest himself, his psychic friends have told him he has as many as 12 “spirits” attached to him. Here’s where he told me about them back in January 2012 (last paragraph; “edited” means that he had edited the post) 

robbattachment.png

 

And I referenced them in a later conversation –

spirits.png

I’ve witnessed first hand, his destructive drinking, anxiety attacks, bouts of suicidal depression, unpredictable rage, depravity and more.   I’m not minimising his personal responsibility but you have to ask how much of his behaviour is because he opened himself up to the paranormal from an early age.

I’ve seen one of our co-stars get possessed by a malevolent spirit and another lose his health from his role as the show’s resident medium. 

I was worried for Mr. Demarest but he always downplayed this kind of stuff and I rationalised that it comes with the territory for someone who’s a “professional” ghost hunter.

P1070770.JPG

In the last few months, since talking to the other women involved in this story, I’ve come to realise it’s not just the “professional” paranormal people who are susceptible to demonic oppression. Remember how Mr. Demarest targets his victims – apart from everything else (single mothers, etc.), they’re fans of the paranormal.

I’ve seen unexplained scratches on some of the women in this story. I know instances of what I suspect are demonic activity and manifestation but I won’t cite them publicly because of confidentiality.  I’ve never come across so much personal tumult in such a small group of people. It’s very startling, and if you know me, you’ll know I’m no alarmist. Take this as my announcement that I’ll never be involved in the paranormal realm again, whether as a “harmless hobby” or whatever else.

I was warned by a psychic against exposing Mr. Demarest before the story broke. Since I came forward I’ve been threatened by psychics/pagan witches who are connected to him. I’m talking about forebodings of disaster and ruin and what sounded like a veiled threat of spells or curses against me and that sort of stuff.  My Hakka stubbornness means, of course, there’s zero chance I’ll back down.

The fact that I’ve been unscathed through all this and none of that bad omen has come to pass etc. reminded me of these words –

1 John 4:4 – .. the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 

What’s the deal with all these Bible references? See, once upon a time, I was a practising Christian. Here’s another theory – maybe my tattered faith from yesteryear, hanging by a thread, was enough to protect me from harm. So take this as my announcement that I’ve now returned to the fold and am once again a Jesus follower, humbly repenting of all my wretched life decisions of the last decade and more.

In a conversation with one of the women some six months ago, I said in an angry outburst that Mr. Demarest is headed to Hell. She replied that only God will decide that. She’s right. Robb Demarest is a predator and a scumbag, but I hope that one day he finds redemption and forgiveness through the saving grace of Jesus Christ. (I forgive you, Robb. Now, go pick up a Bible and read it.)

Over and out (until such time as Robb decides to make a comeback. Remember, tip of the iceberg and all that).

NB. Re: the pics in this post, you might be inclined as a fan of Robb D. to think I was riding on his coattails in these TV shows. As a matter of fact, I was the one who pitched these projects for him along with Haunting:Australia, and I was responsible for getting him back on television after he got fired from GHI. (I’m not saying this to boast but to remind you to come up with a better argument than the tired old “she’s after her 15-minutes of fame” accusation.)

Robb Demarest – The Early Years

A couple of weeks back, I received a message from yet another woman congratulating me for exposing Robb Demarest. I dropped her an email and this was her reply (reprinted here in its original form, with permission) –

Robb and I dated while we were both in college during the early to mid 90’s. I think we were together for about 2 years long distance. We met because my roommate was dating his roommate, different colleges of course.

I visited his home several times. He was living with his  mother at the time.
He was never abusive in anyway to me. But he did lead me to believe that he loved me and I was the only one in his life. I guess his family played along too since I’m sure he had other girls over to his house.

The last time I was at his house alone ( was at work). I found a photo album full of pictures of girls. I found the pictures of me that I sent him. I removed my pictures and put the album back where I found it. That was the last time I went to his family home. A few years later after college I did see him again at his apartment in Vermont. I’m not sure why I saw him again I guess I really never got over him. I use to say he was my first love. But no he was still the same Robb from college.

Tried to convince me that he loved me and I was special. I knew non of this was true.
I guess we really never had a break up. Our relationship just ran its course. In hindsight I realized I was just a part of his game. I wasn’t special and I definitely was not the only one.

Maybe 2 years ago I got in contact with him. I was curious to see if adulthood changed him at all. He claimed to be living in Saudi Arabia at the time. I have no idea if any of this is true.
Not supervising he had not changed at all except physically. Still a user of woman and playing his games.

I must add he was never violent with me ever. But he did play with my emotions and made promises he did not keep or rather had no intention to keep.

I have to say your story and the story of others you share just does not surprise me.
He is handsome, smart and charming. Easy for a woman to get sucked in to his games.
I’m so sorry that you were one of his many victims.

I hope I have answered your questions and maybe helped a little.
If there is any thing else please feel free to contact me.

Still I say good on ya for putting him in the spot light for being the ass that he is.

If you’re a Robb Demarest victim, I’d love to hear your story – you can contact me through social media or via my website 😉

World Boxing Champion Delivers Knockout Punch to Ghost Hunter’s Denials

Back when we first met, Demarest “confessed” to me about his promiscuous past, while promising he was a changed man. I asked him at the time why there were no scandalous stories about him online.

He said that was because he used to date women who were in the public eye. His theory – it was in their interest to keep their reputations scandal-free.

I guess he’s since learned that his theory failed when it came to me.

I think it’s important as a public figure to make a stand and speak out about this predator.

Robb Demarest has denied my accusations and called me a liar; he tells his loyal followers that he never dated 2 women at the same time. Until now, all you had was his word against mine and that of 7 anonymous women.

I’ve been privileged to connect with Robb’s girlfriends – courageous, resilient, beautiful, strong women – who have generously told me their own stories and provided a mountain of evidence in the form of timelines, chat transcripts, voice messages, photos etc. to support my claims.

It would be easier for them to forget everything and move on with rebuilding their lives. Reading some of my posts re-opens raw wounds, yet they continue to encourage me and help in whatever way they can.

These women, most of whom are private citizens, are not in a position to go public for a variety of reasons – career, family, reputation – not to mention being the target of unsympathetic victim blamers and Demarest groupies.

I reached out to some of Demarest’s past co-stars who were rumoured to have been involved with him. None of them stepped up and some even continue to collaborate with him by signing up with his newly-formed agency, Raven’s Entertainment. I guess he was right to rely on their silence.

Now, Robb Demarest is going to find out that his theory about public figures has failed for a second time.

Meet Mia St John, 5-time World and International Boxing Champion and Playboy Covergirl – aka Woman #8

Since we connected, I’ve gotten to know Mia as an incredible inspiration; her story is a profile in courage both in her professional and personal life.

She is a passionate advocate for mental health awareness through her foundation – http://www.miastjohnfoundation.org/ – and I am so proud (not to mention relieved) that she has chosen to step up and, in effect, confirm her side of the story about which I’ve written at length in previous posts.


On behalf of all the women, thank you Mia, for coming forward to deliver the knockout punch to Demarest’s lies.

Why Are You Doing this to Robb Demarest?

This is Woman #7  In Her Own Words

It was 31 March, 2016 Sydney time, two days after my first post on the Demarest scandal, and three days after the story broke in New Idea magazine.  

New Idea Magazine
Story in New Idea Magazine on Monday 28 March 2016. I particularly like the silhouette of the rat on the left.

Halfway around the world in Portland, Oregon, a woman woke up to messages from her friends about a story they’d read online concerning her boyfriend.

In fact, I would find out later that he had previously warned her about this “crazy Australian chick who was going to spread rumours about him because she was upset he wouldn’t go to Vietnam with her”.

This coincided with his discovery on March 9 that I had found out about his cheating. He had tried to contact me back then but I’d ignored all his calls and messages.

Demarest knew me well enough to know I was going to take action. And I knew Demarest well enough to know he would stalk me online to get a sense of what I would do, so despite having blocked each other on social media, I made a point of continuing with my usual, innocuous, shares while I put together my plan of action.

It had been an intense 48 hours – I was sharing the New Idea story everywhere and churning out blog posts while fielding media calls, responding to attacks from Demarest’s defenders and talking to the women who started coming forward.

These women in turn were supplying me with names of other potential victims that they thought I needed to track down. Profiles they had largely (though not all) collated from their observations of past, flirty interactions with Demarest on his social media pages.

Some of the leads turned out to be hostile, and I had some unpleasant exchanges that made me leery of reaching out to others. Woman #7 was on the list and the fact there was a very recent photo of them together made me think she was probably going to be staunchly in Camp Demarest.

I wasn’t looking forward to making contact.

As it turned out, I didn’t have to.

Late at night on 31 March Sydney time, I received a number of messages from The Daily Mail. I called them back and gave them a 45-minute interview, then headed to bed. During the night, the reporter managed to track down Woman #7 to ask her about her relationship with Demarest.

I woke up to this message the next morning –

Woman #7 – Will you please call me? I need closure please. xxx xxxxxx

Woman #7 – No I do not.. I just need closure.. I am not ok. I am supposed to be practicing routines for work tomorrow but I’m so upset I haven’t been able to move
Is this all true?
Apr 1

My heart broke. Up to this point, all the women I had spoken to were no longer in a relationship with Demarest. For what it was worth, they’d had time to recover somewhat from their break-ups by the time they found out about his cheating.

Woman #7 was different.

During the course of our conversation Robb was messaging and calling her.  I was trying to convince her not to take his call until she heard all the evidence.

Apart from these texts she also left me some voice messages because she was too upset to write. Listening to her timid, anguished voice was gut wrenching.

(ps. these are direct copy-pastes from our conversation, with bits pulled out for brevity and confidentiality)

Jackie M Tang – Are you still “with him”?
Woman #7 – Yes
He just left a week ago he met my family
Can I ask you a favor woman to woman will you please keep this confidence please I don’t want to break down
….

Woman #7  – He said he loved to me
Jackie M Tang – He said that to all of us.
Woman #7  – Because we are still together and I still love him

Jackie M Tang – You need to stop.
Woman #7 – Actually not after this
I believe you
I am completely in shock and I feel NOM inside
I’m sorry to bother you
Jackie M Tang – I’m glad you made contact.
When was the last time you spoke?
Woman #7  – An hour ago
Jackie M Tang – Did you talk about this?

Woman #7  – I told him about all these messages he said they were all lies and To ignore them

Jackie M Tang – Well I’m very sorry xxxxx but they’re true. You are #7
When did you start dating him? ……

Woman #7 – I started dating him March 7, 2015
Jackie M Tang – How many times did you meet up?
Woman #7 – He came to see me for the first time in December. Then he came and saw me a week ago he was doing event for us at the xxxxxxx and he stayed with me and extra week to meet my family
Jackie M Tang – Are you single? Any kids?
Woman #7 – Thank you for keeping me anonymous I don’t want anybody to know I don’t want him to know or my family
I am single and I do have kids they are adults

Jackie M Tang – Are you going to keep talking to him?
Woman #7  – I understand that I hope he doesn’t hurt anyone else
Jackie M Tang – Did he talk of a future? I’m guessing he’s got lots of compromising photos like with all the other women.
Woman #7 – After messaging you no I will block him after my talk with you. Yes we talk to our future of moving in together
Jackie M Tang – Were you planning on moving to Florida?
Woman #7 –  We didn’t really talk about a place
He has thousands of pictures of me when I say thousands I am not lying
I feel completely stupid
I just don’t want my family and friends to know I’ve been through a lot in the last two years I don’t want to put my family and friends through it

Woman #7 – We were supposedly in a relationship since March 7 now I know it’s all a lie he just messaged me but I’m not gonna respond like I said I’m gonna block him after our conversation there’s nothing I have left to say to him
I’m just going to tell my friends and family it didn’t work out
Jackie M Tang – What was his last message?

Woman #7 –  A sticker with hearts
Woman #7 – He’s trying to call me now but I’m not answering
Thank you I trust you 100%
Thank you for being strong enough for all of us
Jackie M Tang – Thank you for believing me
Woman #7 – I do. Please keep me posted and I will do the same again I’m going to go block him right now
Bye Jackie
Jackie M Tang – You bet. Bye xxxxxxx

I’ve cut out portions where I gave her specific examples of Demarest’s multiple relationships.

My public silence between when he realised on March 9 that I had made contact with 2 of his past girlfriends, and March 28 when the story was published, had paid off.

Not knowing what I was going to reveal, he had told her to ignore anything by a crazy Aussie woman who wanted more from their friendship and was now spreading lies about being in a relationship with him.

He then changed it to say that he and I broke up a long time ago, back in 2012. Oh, and any allegations of cheating are ancient history and he was now a changed man (sound familiar?). He had never and would never cheat on her.

When the story and my blog posts were published, she confronted him about the very recent dates in my blog post transcripts. He started to slip up, saying (following based on voice messages supplied by Woman #7) –

1) we were joking around when he said that I was his Baby and he owned me etc. In fact, it was a running joke between the two of us, apparently.

2) he couldn’t even remember where he was in February 2016, that he might have been in Saudi (no, he moved back to Florida in 2015)

3) this voice message is revealing in his specificity about not cheating on her with me (as opposed to cheating on her, period) –

Keep in mind she dated him from March 2015-March 2016;

  1. This was his message to Woman #6 in November 2015 (responding directly to HER suspicions he was cheating) –

https://clyp.it/5oiul4rh

(The following are gleaned from interviews with the relevant women; transcripts available on request)

2. He broke up with Woman #3 in November 2015, then tried to get back with her a few weeks later.

3. He wanted Woman #4 to book them a hotel room for a tryst in June 2015 and got upset when she refused.

4. He proposed marriage to Woman #1 in February 2016 after he and I were done for good.

5. He tried to get back with Woman #5 in February 2016 after his marriage proposal to Woman #1 was knocked back.

6. And these are snippets of our Vietnam plans made in February 2016 (blocks of his dialogue blacked out because of their sexual nature) –

Notice this next bit where I asked if he’s seeing anyone else since he had disappeared for months before making contact again in January 2016 –

Demarest soundbite the next day after talking about Vietnam –

I guess in Robb Demarest’s moral universe, this kind of behaviour isn’t “cheating”.

Woman #7 subsequently sent me this message from Demarest. No “I’m sorry, I love you, etc. – just this”,  as she put it. –

Woman #7 has had a rocky time getting back on her feet emotionally. Out of respect and to allow her time to heal, I’ve left some details out from her account of their relationship. As bad as it seems, some of the worst of Demarest’s behaviour remain undisclosed to this day to protect the women.
