Actress Jenifer Lewis just scored a big payout after she was swindled out of money by an LA Fitness employee/lover.
According to The Jasmine Brand, the ‘Black-Ish’ star sued LA fitness claiming they hired a con-man who stole $50k from Lewis.
The lawsuit claimed that Lewis met the defendant when she started working out at the fitness location, and shortly after a romance budded between the two. During their courtship, Lewis agreed to loan her beau $50k to invest in his new film project. She eventually discovered he was a con-man who had served time previously, and blamed LA Fitness for not running a background check on the employee.
LA Fitnesscountered the claim saying they run background checks on all their employees. Nevertheless, the actress reached an undisclosed settlement with the fitness company.
