Shelley Lubben Trying To Retract Declaration Made Under Penalty of Perjury

Remember remember the fifth of November...

Last year, as they worked out their divorce settlement between them, Garrett Lubben told Shelley he had decided to give Shelley well over $500k in assets. The house, the cars, tools -- basically, everything at the Springville property Shelley calls the 'Lubben Ranch'.

Garrett's intention, he says, was for he and his daughters to sever all ties in order to "start over with minimal memories remaining and zero spousal support." A new life, without Shelley.

Garrett also asked Shelley to do the right thing: to come clean to the authorities, and tell them that he had NOT battered or struck her in any way on September 8, 2015, as he was being charged with domestic battery for an incident that did not happen.

Shelley agreed, then hand wrote scribbled and signed the following exculpatory declaration, under penalty of perjury, on November 5, 2015.

But then sometime in 2016, Shelley (and possibly her attorney) cooked up new twist on the story, and sough to retract her previous sworn statement, claiming that it was "coerced" by Garrett and his attorney. It is unknown whether the "impact statement" quoted within was signed under penalty of perjury.

And the projection in he second-to-last sentence is hard to ignore; it reads like it could have been written about Shelley herself. 

And the irony of Shelley Lubben complaining that someone else wrote or re-wrote a statement in her name is spectacular: many adult film stars, ex-performers, and even members of her own family, have long claimed that the so-called 'testimonies' purportedly written by them, and published by Shelley on her websites along with a plea for donations, have been doctored almost beyond recognition.

As the next court date, August 18, looms, it appears that both sides are steeling themselves for a battle royale. It falls upon Garrett to discredit Shelley, which should not be all that difficult, considering the potential witnesses who are lining up to testify -- as well as the fact that she claims she lied in her sworn declaration, and that she did so, essentially, for money.

Shelley Lubben Evades Restraining Order, Then Attempts To Steal CarWith Accomplice Jan Villarubia

Bakersfield, Calif. -- In Kern County Superior Court, Tuesday morning, Judge Stephen D. Schuett declined to make permanent a Temporary Restraining Order requested by ex-husband Garrett Lubben and their daughters to protect them from Shelley Lubben.

The judge wanted compelling evidence of the clear physical threats to the petitioners and cared very little for any activity that occurred before June 9 of this year. That's the date of the couple's mandatory mediation and settlement conference. The two appeared amicable, in that they waived their mutual declarations of financial disclosure, and had been able to come up with up a binding Settlement Agreement. It would appear the court officers mistook their eagerness to be out of each other's lives (particularly Garrett's enthusiasm to be rid of her) for cordial amicability.

Here is the report from the June 9 conference. (click on image to enlarge)

Shelley Lubben Evades Restraining Order, Then Attempts To Steal CarWith Accomplice Jan Villarubia

Because many of the (ongoing) events cited by Garrett took place before June 9, the evidence presented provided insufficient basis for the judge to grant a Permanent Restraining Order. 

Incidentally, here (for the first time anywhere) is the Lubbens' Divorce Settlement Agreement:

I've highlighted the section regarding their eldest daughter's Jeep Wrangler

According to Garrett, he"gave her everything up there [in Springville] in the divorce" for a good reason: so that the and his girls could "start over with minimal memories remaining and zero spousal support."

Notice the document contains the clause:
Each party agrees to execute or deliver any instrument, furnish any information, or perform any other act reasonably necessary to carry out the provisions of this agreement without undue delay or expense.
This is important because 1) Shelley has taken no apparent steps to turn the Jeep over to Garrett and/or her own daughter via the California DMV and the loan company. (Their daughter drives it exclusively, and Garrett makes all the payments); and 2) approximately one hour after court let out, Shelley came to Garrett and the kids' house to confiscate Teresa’s Jeep from their driveway!

When asked for comment the day prior to the hearing, Mr. Lubben had replied:
My guess is Shelley will show up with a domestic violence advocate from Tulare County and make a plea to confiscate her daughter’s jeep that happens to be in her name.

He sure called it.  Knowing that Garrett had put $20k or more down on the Jeep, Shelley Lubben was willing to fuck over her own daughter to sell it back and pocket the cash from the equity. 

So, Shelley called for a police escort to remove the Jeep which is in her name -- but neglected to inform them that, per the divorce settlement, the Jeep is Garrett's. That's our Shelley.
Jan Villarubia, Shelley and their "shared daughter" Tiandra, who drove in from Las Vegas (yes, across state lines) to assist Shelley in her illegal plan.

Garrett writes:
She had Jan Villarubia with her today who was eager to drive off with a $50,000 Jeep. [I'll bet... see here and here -- ed.] My girls were extremely scared and when I came home after being called, Shelley was standing on the sidewalk 2 doors down with 2 police cars and officers who read the divorce settlement and sent Shelley away. All new lows for her which we experienced at the Lubben Haus today.

Over on Facebook, con artist Shelley was still plugging away for the rubes:
God is SOOOO good to me.... The judge just threw out the case. And here's the cool part, there was an empty broken chair there and it was the only one no one sat in and I was feeling nervous and the LORD said to me, "Don't worry Shelley I'm sitting right next to you." sniff sniff He is so good. Thank you for your prayers. They mean the WORLD to me. Maybe you can pray specifically for me to sell my ranch or that God would provide a way for me to have a good income since your prayers work so well!
LOL it always comes down to money for our Shelley, doesn't it? Always has and always will.

New routes

The hearing today concluded with the judge insisting that if Garrett wanted to protect his minor child, then he would be well advised to use the child custody path, which does make a lot of sense in the long run, particularly in light of the blockbuster charges against Shelley that Garrett has already disclosed in writing under penalty of perjury.

This mess ain't over by a long shot.

Shelley Lubben Destroyed In BLOCKBUSTER Court Papers: Read Garrett's Restraining Order Filings

  • Garrett claims Shelley Lubben wrote him that she's suicidal as her world comes crashing down around her.
  • He states that she threatened and coerced him into making deals that would harm his position in his upcoming cases in Porterville (both containing charges that are not valid and based on Shelley's lies, says Garrett).
  • Years of verbal and physical abuse by Shelley against the kids and Garrett.
  • "Shelley drinks very heavily and mixes pills that are prescribed and other drugs she bought in Mexico."
  • The "unstable" scam artist has publicly threatened to shoot people.
  • She abuses, threatens and harasses her own children to get them to do what she wants. 

Bakersfield, Calif. -- It would appear that the fat lady has finally sung for manipulative scamster Shelley Lubben. 

These court documents, handwritten and filed by her husband of more than 21 years, lay out a broad range of despicable (and illegal) behavior. The revelations are, in a word, breathtaking.

The hearing for Garrett and his daughters' plea for protection will be heard tomorrow morning, Tuesday, Aug. 2, 2016, in Bakersfield.

It am informed it is expected that Shelley will walk in doing what she does best (playing victim), and make a plea to confiscate her daughter’s jeep which happens to be in her name. Regardless, there's little doubt she will do her best to turn the event into a tragic circus show.

Notice the date that Garrett states the floodgates of abuse and instability opened: February 2011. That month is notable for two events -- 1) the premiere of the first two episodes in my documentary, 'The Devil and Shelley Lubben', and, nearly simultaneously, 2) the disastrous Cambridge Union porn debate, which her team (led by Gail Dines) lost after a stupefying Lubben performance, complete with slurred words and clacking high heels. 

Upon her return to the states she wrote her "team" this letter, and then checked into a psych ward.

Garrett was granted the Temporary Restraining Order (TRO), and Shelley was served with the order and a Notice to Appear tomorrow at 8:30 am in Bakersfield.

Many of the abbreviations in the order are explained in our previous post.

Shelley Lubben Served With Restraining Order To Protect Ex-Husband and Daughters

The latest twist in the Shelley Lubben saga finds the assault rifle-toting nut job reunited with boy-toy Joseph "Homeless Joe" Valley at the "Lubben Ranch" property she is trying to unload, and relying on her trusty California Medical Marijuana card (despite having condemned its use all these years), but more estranged than ever from her own family.

As usual Lubben has overstepped -- first, she informed Garrett of her new love affair, then after Garrett tried to make a clean break by giving her everything in Springville in the divorce -- the house, property, cars, etc, totaling more than a half million dollars in worth (in lieu of spousal support) -- Lubben trumped up a bribery charge against Garrett, in addition to the Domestic Violence and Resisting Arrest charges that were piled on him last year at the ranch, after he knew about Joe, but prior to their divorce.


It seems Shelley Lubben has been engaging a pattern of harassment against Garrett and their daughters, so Garrett asked for and received a Temporary Restraining Order from a Bakersfield court. The Order, which will be published here as soon as it arrives, is noted in the Lubben vs Lubben divorce file:

FLDV stands for the Faith Leaders in Domestic Violent program, and may indicate that the couple sought counseling at some point for Shelley's issues.

PET is traditionally a reference to stalking activity, and CLETS stands for the California Law Enforcement Telecommunication System, the means by which this information was transmitted.

Along with the TRO, Shelley has been served with a Notice to Appear in Bakersfield before Judge Stephen D. Schuett at the court's Metropolitan Division, located at 3131 Arrow St, Bakersfield, CA 93308 -- just next door to one of Shelley's favorite Bakersfield eateries, Buck Owens' Crystal Palace.

The tables have turned, and now everything Garrett has been accused of is being put back on Shelley.

Incidentally, Shelley reportedly placed another 911 call regarding Homeless Joe recently, but they have been reunited for at least the last month or so, and they remain living together at the Springville marijuana pit known as the Lubben Ranch.

Lubben vs Lubben, it would appear, has only just begun.

Everything Must Go! Newly-Divorced Shelley Lubben Dumping 6-BR Springville Property

In May 2015, while they still strived to appear to the outside world as a happy couple, Shelley and Garrett Lubben making plans that would give them each time away from the other. They sold their 3,500 sq ft Bakersfield McMansion, and Garrett purchased a less-costly 4-bedroom house in Bakersfield, for him and his two daughters by Shelley. One of the benefits of this maneuver was that their youngest would not have to change schools, the second unspoken upside was that the kids would get a break from their lunatic mother.

Shelley and Garrett then co-signed on a 13.7-acre, 6-bedroom property in Springville, California, way out in the country. The property, for which they paid in the low $300,000's was deeded in both of their names, possibly because of Garrett's superior credit and earnings. But still, a 6-BR property sounds more like a family home than Shelley Lubben's seroquel and ativan-induced dream of San Simeon.

Easy come, easy go

However, when her affair with ranch hand Joseph Valley became known, and Shelley had her husband arrested TWICE, Garrett filed for divorce.  (Garrett also maintains that none of Shelley's charges against him are valid, and that custody of their children remains with him.)

Whatever Shelley's hopes for the Springville property had been, they were forever dashed, and in October 2015 -- a mere five months after it was wedded to the Lubbens -- the property was put up for sale once again.

Their Bakersfield McMansion eventually sold in December 2015, after the Lubbens dropped the asking price several times.

Here are some more listings for what Shelley has dubbed "the Lubben Ranch":

The property being deeded in both Shelley and Garrett's names, unless rumors that Garrett ceded most of the couple's property to Shelley during their split, some, if not most, of the sales proceeds should be owed to him.

But there's more:

Shelley recently gave an interview to the local paper. Same old BS, but she told the reporter that she loves the Springville/Porterville area. You can read it here.

She mentions needing to find roommates (times are tough for down-on-their-luck, divorced, soon-to-be homeless, 'weary prophets'). Shelley has also alluded to her financial woes on Facebook, first by begging for a work-from-home job, and then with posts like this:

And just this past weekend, Shelley hosted a yard sale:
