Today, after weeks of successfully dodging service of process, Shelley Lubben of Pink Cross Foundation was served with a restraining order at her new $480,000 home in Bakersfield, CA.
The details of the case have not been disclosed, but Lubben is called to appear in Superior Court on December 21, 2011 to argue why the restraining order issued against her last month by a Tulare County judge should not be made permanent.
Lubben is the founder and Executive Director of Pink Cross Foundation, a religious-based organization which, according to the group’s website, “offers hope, healing and support to adult industry workers.”
In October of this year, eyebrows were raised when a woman who had sought help from Pink Cross, former adult performer Michelle Avanti, came forward to claim mistreatment, and that Mrs. Lubben had shared prescription drugs and alcohol with her.
Mrs. Lubben has claimed to have been sober since 2000, saying “God told me He healed me” of all addictions and mental health issues.
Also this October, Mrs. Lubben’s brother took a public stand against her in a YouTube video, claiming that his sister’s account of her life “misrepresented actual events and intentionally omitted truths.”
