(United States) A senior director at a NASDAQ-traded company, 45, sues his teenage 19-year-old ex-girlfriend for campaign ‘to destroy him after breakup – posting nude photos of him on Instagram, creating a fake gay Tinder profile and painting swastikas on his Lexus’.
She allegedly lied about her age, exploited him for financial gain, and then threatened to ruin his life after he broke off their seven-month relationship.
Court documents exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com reveal the Chicago business consultant, 45, who filed as John Doe, is seeking at least USD$1.5m in damages from 19-year-old Jessica Jiahui Lee.
In addition, he has requested an emergency order of protection and law enforement in Illinois and Tex, where Lee is from, are involved.
DailyMail.com is aware of the man’s identity but has chosen not to name him here.
Counsel for the plaintiff, Ryan Jacobson of the SmithAmundsen Law Firm, said: ‘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.
‘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.’
Ryan Jacobson, the plaintiff’s lawyer, said that when his client discovered that she was a professional sugar baby, he decided to break up with her.
“When he decided to part ways, she became vindictive and sought to destroy his reputation amongst family members, friends, and business associates,” Jacobson noted.
“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.”
Jacobson further said that despite having been served the complaint, Lee has reportedly continued to harass his client.
John Doe, who has been described as a “technology professional with over 20 years of consulting experience,” reportedly supported the teen emotionally and financially by paying for her “car insurance, groceries, and treatments.”
The man told Mail Online that he met Lee while he was going through a divorce from his wife of 10 years and “was in an emotionally vulnerable state” at the time.
Based on the court documents, John Doe found that Lee was 19 years old and not 25, as she first claimed. She also told him that she was working for Boston Consulting Group but was actually a professional “sugar baby” and an exotic dancer.
Doe further alleged that Lee used multiple aliases to engage in numerous “for-profit relationships” with other men, in which she grants sexual favours in exchange for jewelry, clothes, and expensive international trips.
Weeks after their break-up, Doe alleges he began receiving phone calls and texts from Lee demanding money at ‘all hours of the evening’ which he ignored.
The teen then allegedly resorted to threats by warning she would expose him as a cheater and a rapist, according to the documents
A text message sent to Doe from Lee on October 15 stated: ‘You’re the same guy who ducking [sic] raped me and is cheating on your wife. I’ll make sure everyone knows.
‘And I’ll take care of my own car insurance, groceries and treatments. But I’ll make sure everyone you know and everyone in your whole friend group knows what kind of person you really are. You can go f**k yourself. You are nothing but a piece of s**t same as every other guy. I wouldn’t have done all those things if I were you….’
According to the suit, Lee proceeded to contact Doe’s estranged wife by using a bogus Facebook account and disclosing private information that she had learned during their relationship.
She also told her that Doe had sexually assaulted her so that his wife ‘would have leverage in their division of marital assets’ in their divorce, the suit states.
Doe’s wife filed a complaint against Lee with the San Francisco Police Department.
However, Lee reportedly continued with her retaliation and turned to her social media accounts to publicly shame Doe.
Court documents also revealed that Lee even went to Doe’s home and vandalized his car.
“Lee then punctured three of his four tires, used a sharp item to scratch all four quarter panels of the vehicle, inserted super glue into the locks and spray-painted swastikas in black on several panels of his car.”
Jacobson said that, “The plaintiff harbours a reasonable fear for his own personal safety, and the safety of those around him, in light of Lee’s escalating, unpredictable, and unexplainably vindictive behaviour following a mere seven-month dating relationship that simply did not work out.”
Shortly after, Doe hired a legal team and sent a formal notice to Lee.
According to court papers, Lee has contacted Doe from ‘untraceable’ phone numbers as recently as February 1.
The plaintiff’s team is now demanding a trial by jury and damages for emotional distress.
