Online dating lawsuits consolidating email systems
She quickly hit it off with an Australian entrepreneur — a man who swept her off to Panama and Costa Rica in 2015 after two dates in California, the suit claims.
They made plans to reconvene in Pennsylvania, but he called her two days later explaining that he “needed to go dark.” “The man also mentioned doing work for Interpol in previous conversations with Daggett, so Daggett thought this was a potentially legitimate, albeit strange occurrence,” her lawsuit states.
But the firm has been linked in gossip columns and tabloids to celebrities including Terrell Owens, Jennifer Aniston, Paula Abdul, and David Spade, and has hosted $45,000 confabs for business elites on billionaire Richard Branson’s private Caribbean island.
Promotions for the weeklong island retreats are filled with lofty philanthropic and corporate affirmations that wouldn’t seem out of place at the World Economic Forum’s annual meetings in Davos, Switzerland, if that conclave also served as a singles mixer for the TED Talk set.
Fleeting communications followed over the next several weeks — exchanges that the suit describes as having the feel of “clandestine operations taking place in Eastern Europe.” But after 13 months, Daggett learned that the man was actually cavorting around the globe with his ex — a whirlwind tour that began the same day Daggett had flown back from Panama.
Another man — a Belgium-based senior executive of a Fortune 500 company, whom the suit refers to only as “the Serial Lothario” — wined and dined Daggett and spent Thanksgiving and Christmas at her home, only to drop their relationship without explanation after a period of months.
“Kelleher’s ‘highly screened’ matches for Daggett included men who were married, mentally unstable, physically ill, pathological liars, serial Lotharios, stalkers, convicted felons, and men unwilling or unable to travel and/or the subject of professional sanctions,” Center City lawyer M.
Kelly Tillery wrote in the lawsuit, filed in federal court in Philadelphia.
Daggett joined the matchmaking service at its 0,000 “CEO Level” — a membership that guaranteed her matches from around the globe and the personal attention of Kelleher-Andrews herself.
But Daggett’s court filings detail a series of brief romantic entanglements with prospective suitors, each proving more unsuitable than the last.
Bill O'Reilly, then the channel's most-viewed host, was also dropped by Fox in April after it emerged that million had been paid to at least five women in return for not pursuing cases against him or speaking out about alleged abuse.
