A 45-year-old “Senior Director at a NASDAQ traded company in Chicago” is allegedly suing his 19-year-old ‘sugar baby’ after he found out she lied about his age and began threatening to tell his wife about their relationship when he broke up with her.
Hiding under the name of ‘John Doe’ and speaking through his lawyers, the businessman is seeking $1.5 million in damages from 19-year-old Jessica Jiahui Lee, reports Daily Mail.
Based on court documents, the businessman said Lee had claimed she was 25 years old when they met but it turned out she was still 19 at the time.
He further claimed that he wasn’t cheating on his wife, technically, as they were going through a divorce and he was in an ‘emotionally vulnerable state’; thus he found solace in the girl. Court documents also revealed he provided her with financial support.
Daily Mail also reported that court documents had stated, “He discovered Lee had considerably misrepresented her age (she stated she was 25 but was only 19), and she lied about her profession (she stated she was employed by Boston Consulting Group but was actually an exotic dancer and professional “sugar baby”).”
The businessman sought an emergency order of protection and law enforcement in Texas (Lee’s hometown) and Illinois.
“My client and the offender dated just seven months before the truth about her life began to surface. When he decided to part ways, she became vindictive and sought to destroy his reputation amongst family members, friends and business associates,” revealed Ryan Jacobson of the SmithAmundsen Law Firm.
Doe ended their relationship in September 2017 but an angry Lee reportedly vandalized his car and threatened to ruin his relationship with his family and business associates. Court documents also revealed Lee, posting under Instagram handle @lifeinplastixx, she was a victim of *****.
“Fortunately, the law provides civil recourse and stiff criminal penalties against those, like Ms. Lee, who think they can hide behind the Internet to terrorize another from hundreds of miles away. Ms. Lee has been served with the Complaint, yet she continues to defame and harass my client to no end. I can assure you, there will be consequences,” Jacobson added.
