NL- This is the letter Shelley talks about in her note to me. Some info that was too personal about people not involved in this debate has been removed.
Yesterday, I videotaped an in-depth interview with Maddy, in Visalia.
I know everything — the booze, the pills, the weeks in rehab,
The fact that you told her that if her baby came out black she should get rid of it.
The fact that EVERYONE on your team knew all about your addictions and covered it up.
The fact that you kept Maddy drunk and high on pills (in the “Recovery House”!) to control her so that you could use her as the Pink Cross “poster child”, to raise money off of her.
The fact that you and Ricky told Ann Marie that God would cure her of her AIDS if she joined Pink Cross.
The fact that Jan is now trying to go around your back and supplant you with AHF and others — she too thinks you’re a sinking ship and she wants to make her own name.
The reason why you and Gary sent XXXXXX home.
How you sent Jenni’s child away because it was annoying to you.
I know that your whole life story is fiction — because I got the true story — complete with documentation — from the people who knew you and Gary back then — and from your own family.
FROM YOUR OWN FAMILY.
I know everything.
You remember this message to [your brother] Chris last year:
”YOU WANT ME TO TELL THE PUBLIC ABOUT YOUR RECKLESS TEENAGE YEARS? DON’T YOU EVER STAND AGAINST THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST AGAIN OR THE LORD WILL REBUKE YOU PUBLICLY. I forgive you, but the LORD is powerful in me and HE WILL NOT BE STOPPED.
“You have done a terrible thing to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and against my family. Heck, I don’t even care about me or my family but ZEAL for the LORD has eaten me up.”
”I love you dearly, more than you know but you have not recognized my love. Instead you have you have secretly been jealous of me….”
“Some times the LORD has to break our legs when we stray. He will now break yours.”
I notice that NOT ONCE DID YOU TELL YOUR BROTHER HE HAD LIED ABOUT YOU TO HOWARD STERN. That’s because you and he both know he was telling the truth. The world will know it soon.
I KNOW EVERYTHING, LUBBEN.
I even have the footage of you on the Ricki Lake Show from 1994.
I have police reports about you.
I know that both your mother and brother have suffered from anemia — like you.
I know about your first miscarriage at home in the bathroom during senior year — before you’d ever been a hooker or porn starlet.
I know how your parents moved you back home to help raise [your daughter] Tiffany, but rather than get a real job you moved out and went back to “the life.” You needlessly subjected your own daughter to the hell that was your life out of selfishness.
I know how your parents paid for your cars — and how you stuck them with the bill and tarnished their credit. I know how your dad repaired your vehicles, because your’e so reckless and thoughtless.
I know about the traffic ticket you signed your sister’s name to — throwing a high school student under the bus for something you did. Your own sister. (I have the court records)
I know how you trashed your parents’ house on Leadora with a party; how the plumbing was ruined, and there was a fire at the garage.
How you father NEVER SAID “You’re dead to me.” How no one remembers you taking your bible with you. How you called a friend to pick you up and said you had a place to stay.
How you and Gary moved into, and later trashed, your family’s camper, after you two were thrown out of Gary’s aunt’s condo. How child services was called on you.
I have the testimony of Savannah Jane — a deaf woman with cancer whom you took advantage of.
I have the testimony of the people at the Cambridge debate, including XXXXX XXXXX, who recalls you hit on him afterward.
I have the photos and video of you from PSK.
And more. I have everything you prayed I would never find.
EITHER EVERYONE ELSE IN THW WORLD IS LYING, OR YOU ARE. WHO DO YOU THINK PEOPLE — POTENTIAL DONORS — WILL BELIEVE?
I am willing to put you on camera for your response. We meet at a neutral spot, I interview you, I own the footage.
You can either keep up the lies and go down in flames — or you can come clean and beg forgiveness and pull a Jimmy Swaggart.
Personally, I don’t care which — because the things you have done sicken me to my stomach. But I am offering you the opportunity to respond in your own way.
You can choose to ignore this offer, and take your chances. Either way the real Shelley Lubben story goes live very soon. This is guaranteed.
Don’t delay in answering me, for I have no more patience for you and the way you scam people and hurt those around you. Including your own children
Do the right thing, Shelley, for the sake of your family — for the love of God. Tell the truth for once in your life. This may be your final chance.
Have some self-respect, have some decency, and look hard in the mirror and forgive yourself. If you can, others can too.
I’m offering you more of a chance than you ever gave anyone in your miserable, sinful, selfish life: redeem yourself, help your family.
What will it be?
