Jenifer Lewis received a healthy settlement from LA Fitness. Lewis sued LA Fitness earlier this year accusing them of hiring a con-man who took $50k from her.
When she started going to the West Hollywood location, she met a manager who worked there. They developed a relationship outside of the gym when 3 months in he asked her for some money fund a film he was making.
He told Lewis that it could win an Oscar, because he had earlier works that won awards in the sound design category. After hearing this Lewis agreed to loan him the money.
However after some time Lewis found out that the man was lying and had previous jail time records. She criticized and blamed LA Fitness for not performing a thorough background check on their employee.
She went back to talk with LA Fitness about the issue but they stood behind their employee and told her to stop throwing blame on them.
Lewis even went to social media, posting on Instagram about her problem
LA Fitness gave a statement saying that all of their employees have background checks. They say the accused manager’s back ground check came back with no evidence or history of scams.
