Maggie McNeill in "The Devil and Shelley Lubben"

Sex worker, activist and author Maggie McNeill explains how someone with claims as flimsy as Shelley Lubben's could find acceptance among prohibitionists when she popped up on the anti-porn / anti-sex work radar in 2004.

Ms. McNeill appears in Episode 5 of Michael Whiteacre's documentary series The Devil and Shelley Lubben.


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 were 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 himself 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, 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:

Shelley Lubben Begs For Work; Claims to be 'Highly Educated'

Here's something to kill those, "Now that Shelley Lubben is 'retired', we won't have anyone to laugh or aim derision at" blues.

From her personal Facebook page:

Source: Facebook

The abysmal grammar in the opening surely puts the lie to her claim that she "can write very well" LOL

For the record, Lubben has admitted to cheating her way through high school, and holds ZERO degrees from legitimate accredited universities. All of her 'degrees' come either from online diploma mills, or unaccredited bible colleges.

That she's seeking online work is doubly hilarious. First, such a job would allow her to remain loaded every day; and second, she has claimed to be an expert computer programmer. Funny thing is, two years ago Shelley the self-taught web designer claimed to need money for an "expert Drupal programmer, despite the fact that according to the Drupal website, and even Google, Drupal is one of the easiest open source web apps available.

On June 25, she posted on Facebook:
">So I'm pretty bummed today. I think I broke my foot while walking on my ranch and so there goes me working at the moment (I can barely walk) and THEN I burned my hand pretty badly cooking a roast. I NEED to work. If anyone has work online including web design, graphic design, editing, writing or anything I can do online I would greatly appreciate it. I'm not too proud to ask. I just need to work and pay my bills and it's pretty hard with a busted foot and living way up in the mountains. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Shelley used to say that God has a plan for all of us. I guess the almighty preferred her divorced and desperate and in pain.

I think I'm going to write the newly-divorced Slubbster, ask if she'd consider relocating to Las Vegas, and offer her a position wiping my ass. Sure I'd be nauseous from her boozy breath, but at least I could feel good about how much I care -- and, undoubtedly she'd be "SUPER grateful."

The Shelley Lubben Divorce is a Done Deal

Bakersfield, Calif - In the wake of a shocking sex scandal, the 21-year-long marriage of Garrett and Shelley Lubben has come to an inglorious end. 

In a Bakersfield hearing room on June 9, 2016, Judge John L. Fielder laid it all to rest.

Both parties waived their full declarations of disclosure (including their net worth and source/location of assets).






Next month, on July 19 at 10 a.m. Garrett will be back in court, this time in Porterville, Calif., for a Jury Trial setting in his September 2015 DV case, and a Jury Trial Confirmation in his October  2015 resisting arrest case. Charges in both of these odd cases were filed by his now ex-wife, the disgraced Shelley Lubben.

Update July 11, 2016:





Lubbens To Face Off June 9, at Divorce Conference in Bakersfield

Bakersfield, Calif - In the wake of suspicious domestic violence charges and a genuine sex scandal surrounding self-proclaimed "prophet" and former Pink Cross Foundation head Shelley Lubben, the beleaguered Garrett Lubben filed for divorce in March of this year.

Lubbens To Face-Off June 9, at Divorce Conference in Bakersfield
Shelley and Garrett Lubben, seen here during a disastrous PornHarms webcast
from their home in Bakersfield, will face each other in court June 9.

Last week, Kern County Superior Court in Bakersfield set the first date in the Lubbens' divorce proceeding: a Mandatory Settlement Conference on June 9 at 1:30 p.m.


The Lubbens are next scheduled to meet face to face on July 19 at 10 a.m., when Garrett has court dates in his criminal cases in Tulare County Superior Court: a Jury Trial setting in his September DV case, and a Jury Trial Confirmation in his October resisting arrest case.

Over on Facebook, Shelley doesn't seem all that upset about the divorce . . . and blames porn for her marital problems. Really.




"We"? Who's "we"? Garrett filed on you after the aforementioned series of events.

We will have copies of the divorce filings shortly, but for now, as an FYI for readers, here is the divorce process in California:




Court Dates For Shelley Lubben's Husband Pushed to July

Porterville, Calif. -- In Tulare County Superior Court  Tues. April 12, 2016, new court dates were set in the suspicious ongoing criminal cases against Garrett Lubben, husband of his disgraced accuser, Shelley Lubben, and co-founder of the anti-porn outfit, Pink Cross Foundation.

Garrett Lubben
Pink Cross Foundation closed down in January.

In 2015, Garrett, 43, and Shelley Lubben, 47, put their Bakersfield McMansion up for sale and Shelley moved way out in the country, to Springville, in California's Tulare County, while Garrett remained in Bakersfield so that the couple's youngest daughter wouldn't have to change schools.
As Pink Cross Foundation was continually exposed by Michael Whiteacre and others, the Lubbens downsized and lowered their profile, but trouble still followed them.

Garrett graduating from Bible College 

On September 8, 2015, the straight-laced Garrett, who was recently ordained and joined his wife in ministry, was arrested by Tulare County Sheriffs at the Lubbens' new home for domestic violence, and charged with Infliction of Corporal Injury on a Spouse/Cohabitant -- a charge which is notably out of character for the notably even-tempered businessman.

He bailed out the following day.
Then on October 8 of last year, the Tulare County Sheriffs were dispatched once again to the Lubben homestead, and Garrett, was carted off again with a fresh set of charges: disobeying a court order (regarding the Sept 8 domestic violence charge), and resisting arrest.


His bond was initially set at $50,000. That’s a substantial bond.

On December 1, the Tulare County D.A.'s office opted to prosecute the new charges as well.

The need for cash might help explain why the couple had been so eager to sell their previous home in Bakersfield at a discounted price (they finally sold it in December).
Shelley and Garrett
The warring Lubbens
But, it appears, the story is a bit more complex.

2015: The year Shelley Lubben discovered the power of 911

As revealed here last month, in 2015 Shelley had allegedly begun a fling with her "ranch foreman", a former dishwasher from Bakersfield named Joseph Valley (then age 26).

But then Shelley phoned in a domestic violence case on him, too!

Valley, aged 27, was arrested by Tulare County Sheriffs early on Christmas morning, 2015. His bail was set at $50,000, which he was unable to pay.

Valley was convicted and sentenced, and eventually released on March 22, 2016

All of which causes one to wonder, did Garrett walk in on something back in September or October of last year?

Bear in mind, on Oct. 13, 2015, five days after being arrested a second time at Shelley's "Ranch", Garrett filed for a legal separation in Bakersfield.

On March 14, Garrett amended his petition to Dissolution of Marriage (divorce), and on March 24
proof was filed in Bakersfield that Shelley had been served with Garrett's divorce papers.


Garrett's criminal cases

Garrett Lubben was arraigned on November 3 for the September domestic violence charge in the Porterville division of the Tulare County Superior Court. The case # is PCM324571. 

On Tuesday, Jan. 12, Garrett Lubben had been ordered to appear in Porterville for arraignment on the charge of Obstructing/Resisting a Public Officer in violation of California Penal Code 148(a)(1). That case # is PCM327330
On Jan. 26, an attorney appeared on Garrett's behalf, and a Feb. 29 hearing date was set in both criminal cases.

At the February hearing, a date for trial setting was ordered for April 12, with a tentative Trial by Jury scheduled for April 14.

Tuesday, a new court date of July 19 at 10 a.m. was set in both of his cases: a Jury Trial setting in the September DV case, and a Jury Trial Confirmation in the October resisting arrest case.
Rollin' -- the high living Lubbens
Born on July 15, 1972, Garrett Theodore Lubben graduated Ontario Christian High School in 1990. At the time he met Shelley, in the 1990s, she was a heavy partier and he was using and selling methamphetamine in and around Chino, Calif. Beginning with a stint in the U.S. Army, he turned his life around and became a successful businessman and devoted father.

Lubben’s father Glenn, now deceased, had reportedly also been a pastor, but “fell to sexual sin”, Shelley has said.

Shelley Lubben Sex Scandal !! -- Lubben vs. Lubben

The Fall of the House of Lubben:

Adultery! Wild Charges! Divorce! Guns! Paranoia! Photos and new twists emerge in the Shelley Lubben saga.


I recently received the following email concerning our favorite anti-porn charlatan:

I will keep names out of this but i have worked for shelley for years and i have been to the "Lubben Ranch" and worked for shelley lubben and a man named joe. i was not aware of garrett going to jail until poeple around town were talking. i was introduced to this ranch hand/ foreman as the boyfriend of shelley lubben. i did some work for her, for which i was never payed, [sic] but the man she was living with i guess she called the cops for a domestic disturbance and he was arrested some time around the christmas holidays.

i snapped these pics off of shelleys laptop when she was outside. all i know is that they seemed to be in love and his name is Joe[. He's] locked up in porterville or tulare and he's originally from bakersfield. also she uploaded some videos of him on her facebook. in your story i would like to let shelley know i have been working for her for years. and she needs mental help oh and her husband is a good lover :)


Along with the message came the following two photos:

Research indicates that "Joe" is Joseph Valley, aged 27, and that he was arrested by Tulare County Sheriffs early on Christmas morning, 2015, at the "Lubben Ranch".  

His bail was set at $50,000, which he has been unable to pay.

Mommy Wasn't Kissing Santa Claus


Garrett Lubben cuckolded by wife Shelley Lubben and Joseph Valley
Garrett, cuckolded no more


Shelley's husband, Garrett Lubben, was working on the road doing sales for his new company, with a home base in Bakersfield to watch the couple's two daughters -- so the youngest won't have to change schools -- while Shelley was in Springville getting real cozy with Joe the ranch hand in the love nest where Shelley had Garrett arrested TWICE in 2015 under dubious circumstances.

Sources says that the May-December romance began in the summer of 2015, not long after the Lubbens purchased the property and hired some workers, including Joe, to get it into shape.

Did Garrett walk in on something?

And why is Joe in jail? 

Wouldn't you know it, Shelley called in yet another DV case to the Tulare County Sheriffs.

UPDATE: It turns out her original claims were worse than that. See here


How Green Was My Valley?


Joe Valley does indeed hail from Bakersfield, where he had a few minor criminal cases, including:



Many of the charges against Valley suggest that he has been homeless and panhandling from time to time. The arrest log for the 2011 battery case lists his profession as "dishwasher".



Since the Springville "Lubben Ranch" is deeded in both Shelley and Garrett's names, it will be interesting indeed to see how this all shakes out at Garrett's upcoming trial in Porterville in April.


Now what could have set off this chain of events?

Perhaps the answer lies here:

On Oct. 13, 2015, five days after being arrested a second time at Shelley's "Ranch", Garrett filed for a legal separation in Bakersfield.

Did Garrett walk in on something?

Joe Valley is scheduled for release on March 22.

UPDATE (March 22): Joe Valley has been released from custody, his sentence served.

UPDATE (March 24): Shelley has been served with Garrett's divorce papers.

Over on Facebook, Shelley doesn't seem all that upset . . . and blames porn for her marital problems. Really.


Shelley, no one asked you to fight porn. Oh that's right. . . God almighty woke you up on the middle of the night and appointed you prophet in charge of eradicating porn (and if so, you failed conclusively, as did -- by extension -- God, which of course makes no sense).

Nice that you "hope people were helped." I'm pretty sure if anyone was helped it was purely accidental.


"We"? Who's "we"? Garrett filed on you after the aforementioned series of events.


FYI for readers: here is the divorce process in California:
