When we first came into contact with the fake Jason Aldean profiles, we were duped. We believed what everyone else did. The numerous fake Jason Aldean profiles had started saying that Jason was dating someone in Washington, they said that his wife had thrown him down the stairs etc. After a while, I started realizing that maybe none of it was true. When I had the opportunity to meet Jason at CMA Fest 2012, I knew. Those profiles weren’t real. The people behind them weren’t any association to Jason at all. When they created profiles under his wife’s name and under the name of one of his daughters, we all realized they’d gone too far. That’s when we started this quest.
Two years ago, I met someone else who’d had the same experience, and had been watching the fakes for over a year. I started trying to find ways of getting the word out. We banded together and brought anyone who was affected into the circle. Some people just stopped paying attention, but we were determined. When we met a private investigator named Johnny James, he was doing an investigation as well. The fakes had gone even further. Fans had sent gifts in thinking that the items were going to Jason Aldean for signatures, and others had sent gifts to Jason but instead these items and gifts were being directed to an address on the other side of the country to a person believed by the fans to be a sibling to the country music star, but instead, is one of the people responsible for the fake profiles. The items were never signed and returned, and hearts were broken. That’s when we decided that hunting these people down wasn’t enough. We became a team dedicated to finding out and putting a stop to who was responsible for the Jason Aldean profiles. When we got the name, we forwarded the information to the management company for Jason Aldean. We’d thought it had fallen on deaf ears. Fact was, the profile addresses weren’t enough. We needed the names of the players.
I got in contact with that person who can make a difference. I spoke with the lawyer involved with Spalding Entertainment. After a long discussion of me explaining what we’d found and the history of our team, he was shocked at the work we’d done. “You managed to uncover all of that? That must be one heck of a team,” was one comment. I told him what we were trying to do. He assured me that when we do find out who’s responsible, he will be putting a stop to it. There will be a lot less fake profiles to worry about. At least that’s the hope. The fight might never be over completely, but because of the work of our amazing team, we are one step closer to putting an end to the Jason Aldean segment of the battle. If anyone has contacted these people and been given information or an address, please forward it in to [email protected] so we can get the info to the lawyer. If you have proof that items were sent and never given to them, send it. The more evidence we have the better.
We started out a small team, and we will only get stronger. From Johnny and myself, thank you for your hard work and your dedication to the truth. From the lawyer…. “Thank you for helping to put an end to this. I don’t know how you’re doing it, but thank you for helping to defend these people.” We’ll be defending until we don’t need to anymore. Thank you for being part of the team.
