Gypsy Rose Blanchard’s lawsuit against blogger April Johannes arising from their former media partnership was revoked by a Missouri court on Wednesday.

RadarOnline.com has obtained court documents showing that the case was dismissed because “the venue is not appropriate in Livingston County.” We contacted Blanchard’s lawyer and Johns – who goes by this name Franchesca or Fancy Macelli on social media – for comments.

Blanchard’s father, Fishing rodstepmother Kristyand stepsister Mia filed the lawsuit last month, accusing Johns of defamation, fraud, breach of contract, unjust enrichment and false light.

According to the lawsuit, Blanchard’s parents first came into contact with Johns in 2017, while Blanchard was serving a 10-year prison sentence for the murder of her birth mother. Dee Dee Blanchard. Johns, owner of Mad Ginger Entertainment, claimed to be an “emerging producer” and offered to produce media projects about the troubled figure’s life and cause.

In late 2017, Blanchard and her parents signed agreements that gave Johns the right to profit from the story. As part of the deal, the family gave Johns and her “team” access to evidence from the case, such as crime scene photos and police videos, as well as “Gypsy’s private, protected medical records,” according to the lawsuit.

Blanchard’s family sued Johns for alleged defamation, fraud, breach of contract, unjust enrichment and false light.

“For over two years, Plaintiffs Gypsy, Rod and Kristy worked closely with Defendant Johns/Macelli, participating in numerous conversations and interviews,” the documents say. “During this period, Johns/Macelli claimed to have the necessary skills and experience to meet its contractual obligations.”

However, the relationship began to deteriorate due to John’s “failure to secure media projects or produce any marketable content, and John becoming confrontational over Gypsy’s relationship with her fiancé Ken”, and the Blanchards cut ties with the producer in 2019.

Three years later, the Blanchards alleged, Johns continued to create and profit from content “in the form of posts, comments, videos, podcasts, interviews, etc. on numerous social media and streaming platforms.”

The family claimed her posts became increasingly defamatory, presenting evidence to the court with statements allegedly made by the content creator, calling Blanchard a liar and calling her stepmother a “con artist.”

Additionally, the Blanchards alleged that Johns falsely accused them of stalking her and encouraging others to harass her, while she reportedly expressed fears that someone was “taking her out.”
