I tried texting him back…I would not hear from him until the next day…of course I was at work and upset.
He called me at work, on my lunch and said that there was an old girlfriend and other girls he dated that are out to get him…I told him that I did not care, that was a long time ago…
As long as you have not cheated on me…I don’t care…he said he would never hurt me and that he loved me…that Friday, I was to teach my very first class…early morning at 8.30am…
Now it was Thursday morning and my phone was blowing up from messages and texts about my boyfriend, Robb…it’s all over the internet…a fraud…cheater…double life…married…all these women…
I then got a call from a reporter…I was literally in shock…I was still in my PJ’s and could not move out of bed…I had to get a throw up pan and was constantly throwing up…The reporter gave me Jackie’s info…the whistle blower…
I messaged her…why are you doing this to Robb Demarest?
Annaliesje Trees – I’m sorry to bother you but why are you doing this to Robb Demerest (sp) I just need to know. Thank you (April 1, 2016)
Annaliesje Trees – Will you please call me? I need closure please. 503xxxxxx I need to know the truth. Thank you…You can call me on messenger as well. (April 1, 2016)
She went on to tell me…I was so sick…I was so in shock…I couldn’t move…shaking…crying…
I texted Robb…he said ignore them…it is all lies…
I dated them years and years ago…
(The evidence – )
(Message from Robb Demarest to Jackie M on 2 Feb, 2016)
Robb Demarest –
You are my tiny baby
I own the rights to Nyok Tang
Call yourself Jackie all u want but I’ll sue u
(2 Feb 2016)
(Robb’s explanation for the evidence)
(Robb Demarest claimed this was old conversation but note the mention of losing his (Saudi) job which was a recent occurrence)
Robb Demarest –
…Swear on my kids
I wanted you 24/7
(Then come over!)
If I had the money…I got let go
(It doesn’t cost much to fly, right?)
I lost my job, Nyok. You should be my sugar momma 😉
(Conversation between Robb Demarest and Jackie M Feb 2016 re: Vietnam)
Robb Demarest –
Hell Yes! Can we get sponsors?
(I can start asking….Vietnam I have to get my assistant to research)
(Okay will put sth together)
Can I xxxxxx you?
Btw I really want to…
(You’d better not be seeing anyone else)
I’m not, and you better whisper…
He tried calling me over and over and texted me…
Ignored him…he texted me that he did not want to hurt me that maybe we should break up so then when people ask about him…I could say we aren’t together any longer but we will secretly keep dating…
Just to give it a rest for awhile until this whole thing blows over…
The rest of the day…it was all over FB…Twitter and on the news…
I ignored my friends and family…
I was in shock, remember, that next morning, I was to teach my very first fitness class…and I did it, to be honest, I don’t even remember teaching it…
I know now, that was because I was in severe shock, I could barely see out of my almost closed swollen eyes.
(More evidence from a different woman – Woman #6’s message to Robb Demarest when she found out about his trip to see Annaliesje)
Robb would text me a few more times through the week and then it stopped.
The aftermath was awful…I got hate texts and messages from people in the paranormal and even people I did not know.
Again, calling me a slut, liar and more or less an attention getter trying to get fame from Robb Demarest.
When these women were coming forward, I again, got another shock treatment, when I recognized one of the women, I had actually gone to school with her in the 9th grade and we were best friends and even modeled together for the same agency, she had moved to California and become famous!
It is a small world out there.
The women that were coming forward, I noticed that we all looked so much alike. Mostly dark hair and dark eyes.
I ended up going to counseling; it has been a tough road but I am much better.
I look back on this, thinking, what was I thinking and how dumb was I to have believed all of this and putting up with it. Most people out there will say, why did you not get out of it quickly. You are stupid and etc. I don’t know.
For over the past 3 years, I have been going through a lot. My marriage ended after 20 years, losing friends that had sided with my ex-husband and tried to flow bad rumors about me in the paranormal and lies, the human trafficking fiasco including the TV episode I was in about it, trying to hide it all from my family, a terrible modeling agent, and my mental health taking its toll.
I am now out of the paranormal and no longer with The Shanghai Tunnels. I have to stay out of the paranormal, it is not healthy for me mentally or physically.
All the time in dusty basements and investigating old houses etc, has taken an effect on my lungs. I still today, have a spot on my lung, a lung infection, pneumonia. This is my opinion, but I feel like the paranormal field changes people, it did me.
I was not myself and I began not being happy and I was always frustrated and unhappy. There are a lot of badisms in this field. It changed me too but I changed back and got out of it.
This will make these people mad at me for saying this but a lot of people in these groups knew about Robb and turned the other way. His friends would even reach out to me telling me that they believe me but yet they are still friends with him to this very day. I really don’t get it.
Robb never had anything nice to say about anyone , especially famous paranormal people out there, yes, I know about you guys. He told me how a guy from Ghost Hunters International took his job away and about his girlfriend on the show; he made me watch her on an episode on a DVD when he was here and told me she was a cheater and that her sister wanted them to get married and how all girls cheated on him. He continued over and over and over again, trash talked about everyone in the paranormal.
Robb will try to convince you that you are the one and he will pressure you to get pregnant over and over again! Yes, there was a baby involved and NO, it’s not what you think…I will leave it at that…I don’t want to talk anymore about this subject.
I am not doing this for revenge; to this very day, I still get told by friends and family to move on. They will never really understand and have never gone through this. Please let God judge…don’t judge me.
As I have learned in counseling, people heal and recover at different speeds. I had to do this letter for me and for all women that have gone or is going through something like this.
I really want all women out there and paranormal groups out there, to really look at what’s going on. We all are daughters, sisters, aunts , mothers and grandmothers or have them. Would you want any of this stuff to happen to them? You may hate me or not like me but I would not wish these things on my enemies!!
I have gotten comments like – This has nothing to do with the Paranormal. Oh, but it does. The facts are out there, I have taken the steps to protect myself as proof! I trust no-one anymore! I have grown stronger and have learned from this, I have since gotten closer to God and have new friends in the fitness world focusing on positivity and looking for a much brighter future and look at life.
I still go to counseling and have started my life over. I will never be broken again by a sexual predator, mind mixer and a fraud like Robb, ever again!
Girls, if you are currently with him, just know that I have said many prayers for you, because you will need them, because he will destroy your life like he almost destroyed mine.
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…
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.
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
…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.
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…
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.
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.
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.
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 –
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.
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 😉
Supposedly Robb’s first place of work, but who knows what to believe. Pic from my archives.
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.
