There is no question that Sherrilyn Kenyon is a brilliant fiction writer. It is apparent, however, that she has irreparably blurred the line between fiction and reality, and these astonishing and unsubstantiated allegations may stand as her best fantasy creation yet. When Lawrence Kenyon filed for divorce a year ago, he wanted nothing more from his wife other than an amicable divorce. He is saddened that the stress of these proceedings has brought out the worst in such a talented writer.
At this time, we do not know whether Ms. Kenyon truly believes these allegations or if she is using this newly filed civil complaint in an attempt to gain an upper hand in the parties’ ongoing divorce proceedings. An unfortunate truth in domestic litigation is that some spouses go to extraordinary lengths to hurt their significant other and game the system to receive an unfair division of the marital estate, without concern for the legal ramifications of perjury and filing false claims. The parties have been litigating their divorce for almost a year, but this is the first time Ms. Kenyon has made any such allegation to the court of an apparent conspiracy reaching back years.
We trust that if any substantiated factual basis for the conspiracy claims alleged by Ms. Kenyon existed, she would have provided the same to law enforcement and charges would have been brought against Mr. Kenyon and Ms. Kenyon’s employees. Williamson County, Tennessee has an excellent district attorney’s office and incomparable law enforcement investigative agencies. To date, no agency has brought charges, and no investigation has resulted in criminal action against any individual.
Mr. Kenyon hopes that his wife gets the help she needs during this divorce process, and regrets that what would have otherwise been a private dissolution of a marriage has been shoved into the public arena as a publicity stunt.
