Dallas news station WFAA first reported that Brittany Dawn Davis appears to have diverged from health programs, for which she is being sued, to creating spiritually-focused content. However, Davis has 250,000 subscribers on YouTube.
A client has accused Davis of scamming people with her new project, as Davis is hosting a one-day retreat in April in Fort Worth for $125 per person.
However, her fitness website still works with the plans she offers for $80 to $250. It is these plans that are at the heart of Paxton’s lawsuit.
Davis’ followers said they didn’t receive any of the workout and diet plans she sold them.
The lawsuit accuses Davis of violating the state’s Deceptive Trade Practices Act, claims she failed to deliver any promised personal training programs, and adds that the plans were not custom.
A Wisconsin woman who acquired a plan in 2014 alleged that the Dallas influencer’s scheme even caused her to relapse into her eating disorder.
“I followed her customized workout plan and I ended up gaining 9 pounds in the first two weeks,” said Cori Reali, an alleged victim of the scam.
Reali was among those who started filing complaints in 2019, but she said she had never heard from Paxton’s office until now.
At the time, Davis apologized and said her customer service team would refund customers but require them to sign nondisclosure agreements. She admitted to deleting comments from people who called her out.
“I’ve jumped into an industry without a guidebook. I’m basically going through uncharted territory and I’m doing the best I can with my abilities,” Davis said two years ago. when we first reported it.
For her current content, Davis has received more than $20,000 in a loan that protects her business forgivable paychecks in 2020. Paxton’s office is asking for between 250,000 and 1. millions of dollars.
