What Was Matthew Ventress Cause Of Death? What Happened To Destinee Lashaee? Funeral Obituary News!: My 600-pound life star Destinee Lashaee accused the show’s producers of forcing her to shave, causing the trans star to have suicidal thoughts.
The Sun can exclusively reveal that Destinee filed a lawsuit in Harris County, Texas, on April 17 under the legal name Matthew Ventress, suing production company Megalomedia for negligence, willful emotional distress, fraud, and more.
In court documents obtained by The Sun, Destinee claimed the producers of My 600 Pound Life “took advantage” of her because they were “only concerned with ratings”.
She claims the production company promised to pay for mental health treatment after she told them she “suffered from gender dysphoria and emotional distress from the loss of her brother who died in her arms”.
However, she claimed in court documents that the producers only offered her one treatment “so that she could shoot and be part of the show.”
Transgender Destinee claims she was “forced to shave her face, which was a source of stress and anxiety for the plaintiff.”
“The filming of her shaving was so painful that it didn’t become part of the show,” the court documents said. “The stress caused the plaintiff to have a nervous breakdown, and she kicked the producers out of the house and threatened to kill them and herself.”
Instead of de-escalating the situation, the producers were “coming home hoping for more dramatic footage,” she claimed.
She claimed they were “exacerbating the situation” rather than “providing appropriate assistance”.
Destinee also claims that the producers “well-written and managed many scenes for dramatic effect”.
When she “backed off,” the producers would “threaten to reduce her payment to not deliver the promised gastric sleeve surgery.”
She claims she has thousands of dollars in medical bills, although the production company “commits” to cover medical bills and treatment.
“Defendant manipulated plaintiff’s influence for dramatic purposes, including the effects of diet and defendant’s demands on plaintiff, causing substantial psychological harm to plaintiff,” the court filing said.
Destinee claims the producers failed to conduct a psychological assessment before putting her on an extreme weight loss diet, failed to provide adequate mental health services during filming and after surgery, and failed to train staff on depression. When she appeared on the series, she weighed 669 pounds.
She said on her episode: “I’m only 27. I have so many things I want and need to do. I can’t believe this is my life right now. I lie here all day waiting for food.
“I feel like all I’ve been doing is trying to get out of my depression and pain at this time. Food is the only thing I can turn to. I can feel it killing me. I can’t live much longer.”
The Sun can also exclusively reveal that actress Alicia Kirgan also sued the production company on April 17 for negligence, willful emotional distress, fraud and more. Megalomedia did not respond to the two lawsuits.
In a $1 million lawsuit dated March 30, 2020, The Sun Breaks My 600-pound Life star Annjeanette Whaley accused the show’s producers of “pushing her over the edge” and making her “extremely diet.”
