Shelley Lubben, Boyfriend Kicked Off School Property, Then CAUGHT ON TAPE

Shelley Lubben and Joseph "Homeless Joe" Valley Caught On Tape After Lubben, Reeking of Alcohol, Was Asked To Leave School Property


Bakersfield, Calif. -- On Friday, December 16, 2016, Shelley Lubben, 48, and boyfriend Joseph Michael Valley, 26, drove her Jeep to Bakersfield on a mission.

Lubben had recently been the recipient of a Cease and Desist letter from her ex-husband, Garrett, which directed her to stop using the names, likenesses and address of her ex and their two daughters, who reside with him and of whom he has physical custody.
An excerpt from the Lubben family's Cease and Desist letter to Shelley Lubben
Shelley, who will be forced to testify in court in February to substantiate the bizarre and dubious charges she has leveled against her ex, apparently saw the need to appear like a dedicated parent to the minor daughter she abandoned last year. Some might also say that she had an interest in trying to shore up character witness testimony in the case, as her daughter recently told her she never wanted to see her again and demanded that Shelley stay away from her.

Lubben turned up unannounced at her daughter's high school at around 2:00 pm, and spoke to a female academic counselor. The counselor had never met Mrs. Lubben, even though all three of her daughters had attended the school. Shelley Lubben only shows up when the occasion is about her.

Garrett, on the other hand, was a frequent visitor to the school over the years, for events and parent-teacher conferences.

Lubben reportedly smelled of alcohol and, after inquiring about her daughter's participation in clubs and sports, she asked a series of bizarre and suspicious questions, including how long her daughter's hair was, and which colleges she was considering attending. She told the counselor that she needed to connect with her daughter because her husband would be going to jail soon, and she wondered if she could see her daughter.

Alarmed by Lubben's erratic demeanor, the counselor reminded her that she had been given a portal to view her daughter's recent grades, but beyond that she'd have to look elsewhere.

Having not gotten exactly what she wanted, Shelley became hysterical and was promptly shown the door.  At around 2:30, she got back into the Jeep with Joe Valley, when a school security guard approached them to ask what they were doing there. Shelley told the guard she hoped to see her daughter as she walked to or from class. The guard's response was to immediately tell them to leave the property.

At 2:37, the school phoned Garrett Lubben, informed him of what had taken place, and assured him that Shelley would no longer be permitted on school premises and had been banned from attending her daughter's graduation.

Once Shelley and Joe hit the road, Shelley knowingly or unknowingly phoned the school. However, the call went poorly. To say the very least...
Shelley Lubben, Boyfriend Kicked Off School Property, Then CAUGHT ON TAPE

Instead of being connected to the someone at the high school, Lubben ended up unwittingly leaving a 6 minute voicemail recording that captured her private conversation with Valley.

The conversation, an audio file of which is in my possession, constitutes, in essence, Shelley's post mortem of her experience inside the school.

Shelley sounds anxious and complains that she was treated unfairly after she got emotional, "I didn't do anything wrong!" and strums her own banjo to the tune of "I'm such a fair and forgiving person."

The two talk over each other quite a bit, and as Joe tries to calm Shelley and make sense of what just happened, at approximately 90 seconds in, he non-chalantly asks "Are you on speed?" Lubben registers neither surprise nor outrage at the question.

Lubben has long claimed to be a reformed drug addict and alcoholic -- or rather, that God almighty miraculously "cured" her of all her physical and psychological maladies -- yet in reality she has been in and out of rehabilitation facilities and psych wards for years. In his court filing for a protection order against Shelley earlier this year, her ex-husband confirmed that she remains a "heavy drinker" who abuses prescription drugs.

According to reports, Joe Valley has also been a drug user, and has a lengthy arrest record.

Lubben complains of having been "accused right there" at the school, and demurs again that she "didn't do anything wrong; the whole time I was talking like I'm talking now."

It is clear from the recording that Lubben is afraid of what her daughters would say in front of a jury. "I don't want Garrett...to use them against me!" she exclaims.

Of her youngest daughter, Lubben complains, "I never ever did one thing wrong to her, the little bitch."

One of the strangest and most ironic moments on the recording is where Lubben implies that she is owed sympathy because she is "a victim of domestic violence." Lubben wears the phrase with the same comfort as her other weaponized line about being "a victim" and "survivor of the porn industry". The irony, however, is the only person who's ever been convicted of beating her is the man sitting next to her. She also accused Valley of rape on the same occasion -- which was nearly one year prior to this road trip.

Suddenly the tone of Lubben's voice changes. "You know what we're doing? We're coming back here...."

Other material in the conversation (which I shall withhold for the time being), combined with Lubben's behavior at the school, caused sufficient alarm amongst the administration -- and particularly with the academic counselor who incurred Lubben's wrath -- that the school called Lubben back to inform her that they were going to the police. The event was given a police incident number, and a detective has been assigned. This is particularly bad news for Valley, who is on probation following his release from jail for beating Shelley.

More on this amazing turn of events coming soon...

Will Shelley Lubben Take a Powder to Save Face? Testimony Pushed 60 Days

Will a two-month reprieve be enough time for the adulterous "rebel prophet" to cash out of the Springville property she obtained in her divorce settlement and become "unavailable"to testify?

December 1, 2016, Porterville, Calif. -- In Tulare County Superior Court, the deputy district attorney tasked with prosecuting Shelley Lubben's husband based on her strange, and shall we say fluid version of events, acknowledged that his office had failed to adequately prepare for today's hearing.

DDA Vicente Reyes has yet to fulfill the discovery requests made by Garrett Lubben's attorney, and failed to subpoena his witnesses (principal among them, Shelley Lubben and the sheriff to which she first presented her charges) in time for a scheduled December 5 hearing. The judge scheduled a resetting for today's hearing on Feb. 2, 2017, with Feb. 6 slated for witness testimony.

Shelley, having been spurned by her now ex-husband after admitting to her affair with a ranch worker, is currently trying to retract her exculpatory statement about him, made under penalty of perjury, claiming it was given under duress.

Her retraction, however, was apparently not made under penalty of perjury.



This further -- some would say, unconscionable -- delay in the court proceedings against her ex, frankly, has "Shelley Lubben" written all over it. It positively stinks of her.

With the prospect of character witnesses lined up to annihilate her last shred of credibility, the pressure upon Lubben is enormous. Famously enthralled with her own celebrity for the sake of the attention and validation from the flock that it provides, Lubben is undoubtedly freaking out right about now.

Even though, with genuine contempt, she herself views her support base as gullible rubes, the prospect of ending up with irrefutable egg on her face is not something a glib narcissist can abide.

She has written to Garrett of suicidal thoughts, and sent strange, even sentimental farewell messages to her family, so it's easy to divine that the idea of escape already commands substantial weight in her mind. And with each drop in asking price for her "Lubben Ranch", the case can be more easily made that Lubben is hoping to put off and ultimately avoid her inevitable humiliation in the halls of justice.

Lubben knocked $50k off her asking price on Nov. 20, 2016


Setting up house in another county or state, would permit her to once again play victim -- here one can easily imagine her raspy complaints about being stalked by porn industry "hit squads" -- as well as "prophet in the wilderness". But again, it all hinges upon her never being rebuked, humiliated and perhaps even prosecuted in a court of law.

A close watch is warranted on Shelley's moves over the coming weeks.



UPDATE: I am informed that "taking a powder" is a colloquialism with which some are not familiar. An enlightening discussion about the phrase and its likely origins may be found here.

Beware These Shelley Lubben SCAM Fundraisers

Having cheated on her husband for the umpteenth time, shacked up with a homeless ranch-hand, pressed dubious criminal charges against both, alienated and abandoned her own family, and with no viable skills or sources of income to fund her hefty alcohol, weed and prescription drug diet, what's a self-described "hustler" and "con artist" like Shelley Lubben to do?

Answer: Try to work the rubes one more time via GoFundMe.

First, we have this fundraiser, created way back on January 27, 2015, entitled "Adult Con Outreach". The actual name of the event is "AdultCon", but in hindsight, Shelley's rendering of it is more true to her intentions.


Here's what Shelley says the money is needed for:



A quick side note: Lubben doesn't live in Santa Barbara, she lives out in the sticks of Springville, Calif., 210 miles away.

Now, I don't recall whether Lubben and her gang actually attended the 2015 AdultCon in Los Angeles, but if they did, they obviously didn't need this money to do so.  But regardless of whether they attended or not, seeing as how Pink Cross Foundation was officially shut down in February 2016 -- nine months ago at press time -- why the heck is this fundraiser still in place?

The good news is, potential donors seem to have asked themselves the same question; the page has only seen a $10 increase in the last nine months:

Now this second Lubben fundraising scam is my favorite, for it gives us another glimpse into the workings of her wine-soaked diabolical mind.



This one, far less successful than its predecessor, was created on May 12, 2015, which coincided with her move to a new property in Springville, Calif.  It was originally entitled "Shelley's Birthday Wish", and we previously reported on it here.

Well, two birthdays came and went; Pink Cross is, like the snows of yesteryear, gone from the face of the earth, and yet the fundraiser remains online.

Even better, Lubben has, in recent months, had to sell her own clothes and household items to make ends meet. And without an anti-porn operation to promote, how the hell could she be planning a trip to the UK? The only trip Shelley's likely to be going on anytime soon is one to the state penitentiary. And a months-long search of UK speaking gigs for the disgraced "rebel prophet" turned up nothing.

However, the most interesting part is this: whilst the fundraiser was originally posted by Lubben on behalf of Pink Cross Foundation, she has since altered it to read "on behalf of Garrett Lubben."

Garrett is her ex-husband, against whom she has pressed dubious legal charges and who sought a protective order against her. Mr. Lubben has gone on record to state in no uncertain terms that he and his daughters want no ties to Shelley whatsoever. In fact, he had no idea that his name was on this fundraiser until we informed him on November 21, 2016. In other words, "on behalf of Garrett Lubben" is another Shelley Lubben lie, and likely one meant to somehow ensnare her ex in more of her nonsensical schemes.




Once a con artist, always a con artist. That's our Shelley.

Both campaigns have been pulled from GoFundMe. The webpage for each now looks like this:

Shelley Lubben Accused Current Boy-Toy Of Rape, Assault With Deadly Weapon

New details revealed in court documents

What effect will this case have on the curious DV charges she brought against her then-husband, Garrett?


Springville, Calif -- A lot of readers have been enquiring about Joe Valley, the hapless (and otherwise homeless) captive boyfriend of former anti-porn scamster and self-promoter par excellence, Shelley Lubben.

Since breaking the news about the then-married Lubben's affair with Valley, which began in the summer of 2015, we've learned more about their tumultuous relationship.
First published pic of the star-crossed couple

As noted previously, on Christmas Eve 2015 (incidentally, also Valley's 26th birthday), the bleach-blonde Mrs. Robinson wanna-be dialed 911 about an attack at the Springville ranch property her husband had purchased.

The Tulare County sheriffs took Joe Valley into custody, and he was booked on early Christmas morning.

Valley, who had been living in his Jeep until Mrs. Lubben beckoned to join her atop the mountain, was unable to pay his bond, and remained in jail until his trial. 

Presented here for the first time is the felony criminal complaint against Joseph Valley, which was filed by the District Attorney on December 29:


Now, rape and assault with a deadly weapon are no laughing matter. Yet, according to a spokesman for the Tulare County Superior Court, Valley was able to "plead to one count, while the others were dismissed." Surely DNA evidence would point to Valley. Did Lubben change her story?

His charge of domestic battery lowered to misdemeanor-level, Valley was sentenced to 90 days in jail, with credit for time served, given probation, and released on March 22, 2016.

By then, Lubben's husband, Garrett, had already refused her pleas for a second chance, and filed for divorce... setting the stage for a Lubben-Valley reunion.

What does all this mean for the curious DV charges she brought against her then-husband, Garrett, then retracted under penalty of perjury, before attempting to retract her retraction?

More on this ongoing story, as Shelley Lubben's December 5, 2016 appearance on the witness stand looms.


WTF Is Up With Shelley Lubben's Face?

Here's a recent photo of the down-on-her-luck "rebel prophet" and adulteress, Shelley Lubben, with her boyfriend, homeless Joe Valley.

 
The most obvious weird feature is her nose, but let's be honest...the whole damn face is a mess.
 

We've seen the many faces of Shelley Lubben over the years -- here's a mini gallery:

UPDATE:  A pithy comment from the Truth About Pink Cross Foundation Facebook group --



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 cooked up a new twist on the story, and sought to retract her previous sworn statement, claiming that it had been "coerced" by Garrett and his attorney. 

It is unknown whether the "impact statement" quoted within the following document was signed under penalty of perjury, and in fact it seems unlikely.

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.

Note that Shelley's assertion that Garrett promised to pay off all of her bills through May appears to be contradicted by their contemporaneous Settlement Of Issues In Dissolution Of Marriage Case, upon which a judge signed off on June 9, 2016. (See the document here; http://thedevilandshelleylubben.blogspot.com/2016/08/shelley-lubben-evades-restraining-order.html ) And only after the fact did she realize that accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of goods and real property in lieu of alimony would mean she'd have to get a job or else sell assets?

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.

UPDATE - Nov. 1, 2016:

Both Shelley Lubben and a local sheriff are scheduled to testify before a judge on December 5, 2016, and Mr. Lubben's attorney will have an opportunity to examine them.

UPDATE - Dec. 1, 2016:

The hearing date has been moved to February 6, 2017.

Shelley Lubben Evades Restraining Order, Then Attempts To Steal Car With 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 understandable 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 2015 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 one 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 down $20k + on the Jeep, Shelley Lubben was willing to fuck over her own daughter to sell it back and pocket the cash from its 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 property. 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. Shelley's 2015 Jeep Rubicon is parked behind them.

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.
Shelley's accomplice in attempted Grand Theft Auto, Jan Meza AKA Jan Villarubio

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.

UPDATE: I am informed that the day after Shelley failed to steal her daughter's Jeep, she called her daughter a "fucking bitch" at CarMax. Nice, huh?
