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.

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?

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

  • Garrett states Shelley Lubben wrote him that she is suicidal as her world comes crashing down around her.
  • She threatened and coerced him into making deals that would harm his position in his upcoming cases in Porterville (both arising from 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.
