Why Stephanie Davison From 90 Day Fiance Is Facing Legal TroubleMay 19, 2021
“90 Day Fiancé” star Stephanie Davison has something in common with bona fide Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow — making unproven claims about protecting oneself against COVID-19. After becoming an instant show hall-of-famer by having an affair with her fiance Ryan Carr’s cousin Harris, Stephanie continued her tour of infamy by telling a local Michigan news channel Eight West that she had a solution to the coronavirus pandemic. Yes, that’s right — her company (Skin Envy Non-Surgical Weight Loss Centers, which focuses on non-surgical methods of weight loss and age reversal)’s impamorelin and semorelin injections supposedly prevented the coronavirus, Stephanie told the outlet.
The star of “90 Day Fiancé,” which ironically skyrocketed in viewership due to the coronavirus-induced lockdowns in 2020, per The Wall Street Journal, offered Eight West anecdotal evidence of her claim by stating she has never contracted COVID-19 while her friends who did not receive such injections have. “I’ve had people tell me in the medical field that it is probably due to the ipamorelin/sermorelin,” she said. Needless to say, these claims came under immediate fire, with one Reddit user writing in February, “As a resident of [Michigan], I just reported this to the Attorney General for fraudulent claims.”
Well, it got Michigan’s attorney general’s attention, after all. Here are the hot legal waters Stephanie has waded into.
Stephanie Davison is facing a potential lawsuit by the state of Michigan
In an official notice dated May 17 from Michigan’s Attorney General Dana Nessel, “90 Day Fiancé” star Stephanie Davison has been given 10 days to publicly retract her claim that her weight loss business’s semorelin injections “prevent Covid-19.” The notice singled out one of Stephanie’s claims made on WOOD TV’s Eight News show, with her saying “[Sermorelin] boosts the immune system, which is very imperative… Almost all of my friends got Covid-19. I never did.”
Nessel’s office pointed out to the owner of Skin Envy Non-Surgical Weight Loss Centers, “It appears you are attempting to profit from the Covid-19 pandemic by exaggerating the benefits of sermorelin.” As the notice read, Stephanie’s prevention insinuations about sermorelin might promote her business’ services over free (and medically tried-and-proven) vaccinations. Nessel even took to Twitter to warn against heeding the input of non-medical professionals, writing, “Probably best not to take medical advice from TLC reality stars. Only one product prevents Covid-19: FDA authorized vaccines. And they are FREE!”
Stephanie better take Nessel’s notice seriously. The attorney general is apparently considering whether to file a civil lawsuit or commence a formal investigation against the business owner. “Your response to this Notice will help us determine if one of these paths will be necessary,” the notice warned. Things just got very real for the reality star!
