Shark Tank star Daymond John has been forced to take out a restraining order against three former contestants who were posting on social media about their alleged “nightmare” experience with him.
According to Deadline, former NFL defensive end Al “Bubba” Baker, together with his wife Sabrina, and daughter Brittani, has been ordered by a New Jersey federal court to stop speaking publicly about their experience with Daymond.
The contestants appeared on the show in 2014, where they accepted an on-air offer from Daymond for a $300,000 investment for 30% of their boneless ribs company. They claimed the offer was later revised off-air to $100,000 for a greater 35% stake, Deadline reports.
According to Deadline, the Bakers allege Daymond and his associates misled them, tried to take their business, and deprived them of profits.
“Today’s decision against the Bakers, their company, and their false statements is a moment of vindication,” Daymond said in a statement reported by Deadline. “The actual facts, the record, and the federal Judge’s opinion have confirmed that I did not — and could not have — committed any wrongdoing. I have always upheld transparency and honesty throughout my journey as an entrepreneur.”
“I am grateful for the support that I’ve received during this time and will continue defending my reputation with the same passion I bring to empowering fellow entrepreneurs,” the Shark Tank star added.
