Supplement company founder slandered and extorted by ex-wife and former business partner
Austin, Texas (June 27, 2016) – Robert Lindsey Duncan, the founder of nutrition supplement companies Genesis Today, Inc. and Genesis Pure, Inc., recently filed a wide ranging civil lawsuit against celebrity spokesperson and stuntwoman Cheryl Sanders (a/k/a Cheryl Wheeler, Cheryl Duncan and Cheryl Dixon.) The lawsuit, filed in Texas state court by the Silva Law Firm, alleges among other counts that Sanders breached contracts and defamed Duncan by writing a malicious and disparaging letter about him and distributing it to the board members of two, well-respected and large supplement companies as well as employees and others.
The letter caused irreparable damage to Duncan’s reputation and negatively impacted the companies. The lawsuit alleges that Sanders was attempting to extort money from Duncan and states that Sanders made up the accusations because she was upset for personal reasons with Duncan, her former husband. Sanders later retracted her statement.
The lawsuit also alleges that Sanders willfully interfered with the board of Genesis Today by not only sending the letter but also visiting the company offices, verbally assaulting a secretary, threatening to disrupt board meetings and making abusive threats against Duncan.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Sanders is a film producer with Traditionz Film, LLC in Los Angeles, co-owner of Genesis Today, Inc. and Genesis Pure, Inc., and a professional stuntwoman/actress. Sanders’ current husband Robert Reed Sanders of Lubbock, TX is also named in the lawsuit.
The lawsuit further alleges that Sanders attempted to extort $1.5 million from Duncan via a nullified promissory note and on yet another occasion threatened to falsely allege that Duncan owed taxes to the IRS if he didn’t pay both defendants $8,000.
According to the lawsuit, in April of this year, both defendants tortuously interfered with an existing contract by stealing a new Audi Q-5 automobile owned by Duncan. The lawsuit further states that Duncan filed a claim for un-authorized use of a motor vehicle (UUMV-class C felony.)
The lawsuit alleges breach of contract, defamation, breach of fiduciary duty, civil theft, conversion, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The plaintiff seeks damages in excess of $200,000.
