Black-ish star Jenifer Lewis opened up in a very revealing Instagram post that her ex-boyfriend reportedly scammed her of out thousands of dollars.

In the post, the actress got very real not only her failed relationship, but also how he scammed her out of more than $50,000. Lewis definitely doesn’t hold back, as she spoke of her ex by name and even included his alias.

Lewis also revealed that she has filed a lawsuit against him with hopes of recovering her funds and placing the ex-con back in prison, from where he is currently out on parole.

Statement Regarding
Lewis v Wilson, et al, Los Angeles Superior Court Case No. BC645841 On September 11, 2015, only hours before my mother passed away, I learned that the man I planned to build a life with was a convicted felon and con artist whose criminal career spans more than 25 years, with a special skill in swindling women. This man, whose name is Tony Wilson, had been sentenced in 2010 to four years in federal prison for conning investors out of $4 million and was currently out on parole. I learned also that his name wasn’t Tony Wilson—it was Brice Carrington. I learned these things too late and became a victim. I have filed a lawsuit to protect others from becoming victims.
