Lani Star is a scam artist who lives on Maui.

She tells everyone she teaches the methods of famed vocal coach Seth Riggs.

He sent her a cease and desist letter telling her to stop when he learned she was blowing up the pages of his book and pretending that she teaches for him.

It's a lie. If you don't believe me, email Seth Riggs directly through his website and he will tell you. Just google him and his website and contact information will appear.

Secondly, she says she has taught and prestigious universities such as Harvard, Yale, and other high profile schools.

This, too, is an absolute lie.

She was fired as a producer on Maui for making ridiculous demands, trying to get advertising to promote her vocal instruction classes rather than the shows she was hired to promote.

BE WARNED. This woman charges $100 an hour and if your a serious singer, being taught by someone who doesn't know what they are doing can seriously damage your vocals.

More nonsense.

AUTHOR: Mark Biltz - (United States of America)

This is just more nonsense. The only reason Lani Starr obtained a judgment in this "case" she brought...was because Evans never knew she filed. If you look at the current record, there is an active motion to set aside the judgment because he never was even at the trial, nor knew when the trial was "taking place." She seems to indicate that by obtaining a civil judgment, that it somehow "means something" when she's out posting all of these hate messages.

As for Seth Riggs, simply "Google" his website and call him directly to ask him what his thoughts are about Lani Star.

Apparently, Lani is not aware of IP tracking capabilities as she does all of this. Now she blames potential "neighbors" who might be able to access her computer from "outside of her house." It's impossible. Anyone who works with a computer knows that while you may be able to get internet access from a router, it does not allow you access to her Yahoo account, or any account she might send an email from.

It's simply impossible, so I don't understand why she would make such claims (and then use the same alias in her most recent postings as she has in the past when making damning remarks which she now denies making. Just what exactly are the odds that her "rebuttal" name would be the same name she used in the prior postings that are upsetting so many people?

Lani Star needs to concentrate on her own life, her own career, and spend time pursuing that rather than constantly trying to bring those down that she feels "wronged by." If she truly were that "spiritual," she wouldn't do the things that she does. She'd forgive and move on.

Instead, she insinuates that people are "breaking into her computer" and blaming everyone but the second gunman on the grassy knoll.

LANI STARR IS INNOCENT SHE WAS A VICTIM

AUTHOR: THE REAL TRUTH LANI STAR IS INNOCE - (United States of America)

It is sad that people like this and his friends, who actually ripped off Lani Star for more than $15,000 have the gall to write such untruthful information about her all in order to hide their guilt. Lani Star recently won a judgement for over $20,000 against Brian Evans. Also if you google his name you will see that he has a long list of complaints against him as well as a felony rap sheet. 


Lani is in fact an excellent vocal coach who not only trained with Mr. Riggs but produced workshops with and for him as well. We have enclosed her Certification from Mr. Riggs which is also signed by him. 


Lani is also one of the only vocal coaches in the world with Grammy, Oscar, Emmy and Leads on Broadway as clients. 


In regard to their statement that Lani did not work with universities such as Harvard, Yale, and other high profile schools. She in fact did and has the evidence to prove it. 


If you visit her web site: www.lanistarr.com you will see testimonials from such luminaries as Dr. Wayne Dyer and Freddie Ravel from the Grammy Award Winning Bands Earth Wind & Fire & Santana, as well as many other illustrious individuals who absolutely rave about Lani as a Vocalist and as a World Class Vocal Coach.

Lani Stark Under Investigation - Maui Cyber Bully Exposed!

AUTHOR: Alliance for Truth and Justice - (United States of America)

At last we may be seeing an end to Lani Stark's Hate Crimes!!! Now, after years of criminal activities that include cyber bullying, slander, defamation of character, libel, and more, a full investigation by the authorities is underway, while many victims of Lani Stark have aligned to stop her in a class action suit.

If you have been harmed by Lani Stark, please file a report with the Maui, Hawaii Police department right away. For further information and to keep updated on this case, please see: http://www.AllianceforTruthandJustice.org.

The following is the full investigative report that was posted by a concerned advocate of victims of cyberbullying on the Alliance for Truth and Justice website...

MAUI CYBER BULLY LANI STARK EXPOSED

As the result of a comprehensive investigation, it is known that Lani Stark (who uses aliases, Lani Star, Lani Starr and Lolita Star) regularly posts defamatory, slanderous remarks to various "revenge" sites to seek vengeance via "cyber-bullying" people she feels have wronged her.  After years of criminal behavior and malicious intent, Lani Stark thinks nothing of the damage she is doing to good citizens, while cowardly hiding behind anonymous posts.

Investigators have counted at least 16 victims of Lani Starks cyber-bullying efforts and the list continues to grow daily. Please contact: AllianceforTruthandJustice@gmail.com if you feel you are a victim. A multi-million dollar class-action lawsuit is in motion against Ms. Stark and all her victims are invited to participate. A full list of victims is available upon request. One of them may be you. If youve had trouble of any kind with this person, it is imperative you check it out, as she is extremely vicious.

An investigation into Lani Starks harassment crimes are now in motion with the cyber-bullying divisions of local and federal authorities in two states. This includes the Maui County Police Department, Maui FBI, Maui Prosecuting Attorneys Office and similar authorities in the State of California. Many of her victims are fully cooperating in this criminal investigation launched on behalf of the innocent victims and businesses that have been cruelly targeted, slandered, libeled, harassed and defamed. The names of the victims are on file and the list of cyber-bullying victims continues to grow with each new day of the investigation. Meanwhile, Lani continues to post false allegations, single-handedly ruining the lives of decent citizens, who to the amazement of investigators, never wronged her. In many cases, it was Lani who harmed them.

Lani Stark clearly understands the devastating impact of these bogus posts (she herself was the recipient of one such post over 2 years ago). She is purposely and maliciously ruining lives with zero remorse. On file are current results of the investigation, including actual documents with proof of Lani Starks vengeful participation. The evidence has been supplied to proper authorities, and will be made available to anyone who thinks they may also be a victim of Lani's vicious posts.

Using outrageous accusations, Lani Starks posts are vicious attacks filled with lies that have no basis in reality. Her false allegations are so severe, they go for the jugular to ruin innocent peoples lives. In numerous cases, she posed as best selling author, Jack Canfield (A CRIMINAL OFFENSE), (who has sold over 100 million Chicken Soup for the Soul books), with unspeakable allegations such as embezzlement, fraud, and molestation, and brutal attacks of a personal nature using words like slut, huge ugly pig, Son of Satan, in an attempt to ruin reputations and careers in one fell blow!

Some of the aliases Lani Stark has used on these posts are, "Jack A. Canfield of Bererly Hills" (her misspelling), "Sammy Davy" of Haiku Hawaii, "Max" of Venice Arizona, "Mom of Two, "mele888" of Venice USA, lilith888, and the list goes on. If you have been similarly harmed by her, please contact us right away and file your report with the Maui Police Department or law enforcement in your state.

Seriously...

AUTHOR: Vocal Student - (United States of America)

I am sorry...but ruin what name?

She runs ads that call her a "GRAMMY WINNING VOCAL COACH".

The Grammy's don't give out Grammy's to vocal coaches.

As for Seth Riggs...if you know him, feel free to call him and ask him yourself if Lani is a practitioner of his.

His website is (((Redacted))) and there is his telephone number right there.

If anyone doubts this...call him yourself.

Also...feel free to call The Grammy (The Recording Academy). Here's there info...in the event you wish to see if there is anything "Grammy" related to Lani Star's name...

Santa Monica, CA 90404
Ph: 310.392.3777

Crap

AUTHOR: Vocal Student - (United States of America)

Lani Star is full of it.

All anyone needs to do is Google Seth Riggs, go to his website, then ask him all about Lani Star.

I have nothing to do with the Celebrity Series, and I got my information from a former employee of a venue the show happened at.

Lani Star collected all the gate monies and never gave them to the producers, instead sticking the cash in her car and then telling everyone she didn't collect anything.

I have never even met the producers of the series, but find it telling that one of the producer's is the first person Star connects to this posting (Ms. Star listed a posting against the series, and apparently doesn't realize two can play at that game).

Yes, oh yes. Lani Star is loving, caring, innocent, and just amazingly wonderful.

Just ask her.

Lani Star, Wrongly Accused she is a World Class Vocal Coach & Vocalist

AUTHOR: Mele888 - (USA)

Lani Star in fact trained by Seth Riggs and was certified by him. She is an excellent vocal coach with Grammy, Emmy, Oscar, American Idol stars of her own to proof it.

You can visit her web site to read the many many testimonials to support and validate her immense talents and gifts as a vocal coach and as a vocalist.

Re: Seth Riggs, She was shown to be innocent of the claims made  against her case with Mr. Riggs, and they both settled out of court to avoid mounting legal fees.

She was not fired by the Maui Celebrity Series she has quite because Mr. Brian Evans in fact bullied her into loaning him over $15,000.00 and has not paid her back as promised. The money loaned was to pay his personal bills as well as Roseanne Barrs fees. Lani has witnesss to attest to this and has retained a lawyer to fight his false claims and accusations.



Mr. Evans who submitted this report on Lani, owns many other innocent people  Maui money musicians etc. which can be substantiated thru public court records here in Maui and elsewhere.

Re: The universities, Lani did create said workshops with the universities stated.

Lani Star is a good, kind, caring woman who has created a wonderful childrens choir on Maui and donates much of her time to underprivileged and gifted children. Giving them the opportunity to have access to a world-class level of vocal education.



LANI IS AN EXCELLENT VOCAL TEACHER WHO IS INNOCENT OF ALL THE FALSE CLAIMS MADE AGAINST HER.
