A Georgia author is suing her husband who she claims slowly poisoned her continuously for three years with the help of their family’s assistant, in order to claim $1million from a life insurance policy he took out on her without her knowledge.
Sherrilyn Kenyon, 53, said at one point her hair was falling out in large clumps in her hands, her teeth were crumbling and her face was swollen for reasons unknown to her at the time.
But the writer behind Dark Hunters series discovered the cause of extreme nausea, vomiting, respiratory distress, disorientation and vertigo that had been occurring since 2014, after he left her in 2018.

The 80-page filing says she suffered from shattering teeth, hair loss, tremors, back pain, tongue numbness and a strange metallic taste in her mouth
‘By February 2017, Ms. Kenyon’s health was worsening to a critical level. No doctor or dentist could tell her why her teeth were routinely crumbling (and) her bones were breaking from very minor pressure,’ an 80-page lawsuit states.

The papers say that her spouse Lawrence Kenyon’s assistant brought her something to eat at a conference in May 2017 and when another employee ate it they became violently ill, the Tennessean reports.
For years Kenyon had suffered from tremors, back pain, tongue numbness and a strange metallic taste in her mouth that couldn’t be explained, the filing alleges.
The assistant Kerrie Ann Plump is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit and Kenyon claims the woman and her husband ‘would force her to eat and become enraged any time she failed to consume it’. She became so unwell she couldn’t walk without assistance.
Submitted to Williamson County Circuit Court, the lawsuit adds an IT specialist, who had access to the author’s account, aided her husband in rewarding money to Plump for her help.
As part of the accusations, Kenyon says Paco Cavanaugh’s IT skills were behind the group using her email and other personal information to pass hundreds of thousands of dollars of her income to Mr Kenyon.
She alleges he made himself the sole beneficiary of a life insurance policy she didn’t know about and closed the banks accounts of her three children before creating one in just his name and pocketing $450,000 for himself.

One anecdote in the suit claims that when her son became distressed at seeing her vomiting after eating, Mr Kenyon told him: ‘She does that all the time, ignore it.’
While Mr Kenyon and Plump increased their responsibilities in her career, which she believes they sabotaged through negative experiences with fans and industry professionals, it may have ensured they had full control of the author and her assets.
Mrs Kenyon added in the lawsuit that by the time he filed for divorce in March 2018 she’d lost publishing contracts which has caused her to seek legal action for intentional interference with business relationships, invasion of privacy, assault by poisoning, plus concerted action aiding and abetting.
Post-split tests of her hair and nails showed her body contained high levels of lithium, tin, barium, platinum and thorium, which appeared to make her certain of foul play.
The woman, represented by Connie Reguli, claims that her health improved once her spouse moved out.
