Jillian Michaels Claims Yacht Crew Tried to Extort Her
She had an 'aggressive and threatening' exchange while vacationing in Italy.
While vacationing in Italy, Jillian Michaels claims a yacht crew member tried to extort her through an “aggressive and threatening” exchange.
The fitness star opened up on Facebook saying she had chartered a boat for 12 days for $60k, but when she arrived on Tuesday, the boat was rusted and damaged.
The 43-year-old trainer said the crew demanded extra money for fuel because the “gas cash had been drained by mobsters in Capri,” writes the Daily Mail.
In a video sent to the Daily Mail, Michaels is seen arguing with a crew member and is insisting the interaction be filmed. She claims she is being scammed and held hostage.
Michaels found the boat through an online company and was traveling with friends, family members and her daughter.
She told the Daily Mail in an email that she and the group are “doing okay” and she is “truly unclear of how far these individuals will go as I was physically intimidated and threatened in emails.”
She warns others to investigate as much as possible beforehand and if anything happens, contact the U.S. Embassy American Citizen Services.
