SISTER Wives star Christine Brown’s employers LuLaRoe and Plexus have been sent a warning letter regarding "deceptive conduct" after she left her husband Kody and their family.
Christine, 49, moved to Utah with her youngest daughter Truley, 11, leaving husband Kody, 52, and sister wives Meri, 50, Janelle, 52, and Robyn, 43, in Arizona.
In an effort to make money, Christine works for multi-level marketing companies LuLaRoe, which sells women’s clothing, and Plexus, a vitamin and supplements company.
The Sun can exclusively reveal both LuLaRoe and Plexus have been hit with “Notices of Penalty Offenses Concerning Money-Making Opportunities and Concerning Deceptive or Unfair Conduct" from the Federal Trade Commission.
The same form letter was sent to hundreds of companies, and explains that the FTC is not suggesting the companies listed have “engaged in deceptive or unfair conduct.”
They are “widely distributing similar letters and the notices to business opportunities, franchises, multi-level marketing companies, coaching companies, gig companies, and others.”
The letter obtained by The Sun advises the listed businesses to “take any steps necessary to ensure the company’s practices do not violate the law," as civil penalties can be $43,792 per violation.
The letter comes after Amazon Prime released a docu-series called LuLaRich that exposes how LuLaRoe, which sister wife Meri also works for, launched an alleged “scam” targeted at work-from-home mothers.
The business was accused in lawsuits of being a pyramid scheme because commission was largely based off recruitment of consultants over sales.
The Sun previously reported the company was hit with a class action lawsuit for endless chain scheme, unfair and deceptive practices claims, false advertising, violation of California corporations code, and more.
The case went to arbitration in August and no new court documents have been filed.
The letter also comes after Christine sold the Arizona home she once shared with Kody for $700,000 earlier this month after threatening to move to Utah amid their martial troubles.
She is now living in a two-story duplex built in 2019 that has two living units attached next to each other as townhouses.
Christine’s portion is 3,490-square feet, and features three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The mom of six will likely live there with her daughter Truley, as her older children have moved out.
In a trailer for the upcoming season of Sister Wives, Christine said in her confessional: “Covid has brought out how much we want to be a family. We're not. I don't think Kody wants to live together again. I think he wants to live separate.”
The mom of six said of the family building on their property: “The best I could give today is pretend. I don’t want to move on the property. I want to move back to Utah.
“Why would I want to live on the property with a dysfunctional marriage where right over there he's got a full-functioning marriage. Who would ever want to live like that?”
On last season's Sister Wives, Christine expressed her desire to move back to Utah now that polygamy has been decriminalized in their home state.
But when Kody and her sister wives shut down the idea, Christine was brought to tears and admitted she “can't do marriage with Kody anymore,” as she “doesn’t matter” to him.
Christine hasn’t been spotted with Kody, as she recently visited Universal Studios with her sister wife Janelle and their kids sans their husband.
Kody and Christine first sparked split speculation last year when he transferred the family home to her a year before she sold the house.
