Rabbi To The Stars

Kabbalah Leader Threatened To 'F**king Kill' Me

A Kabbalah leader -- who hobnobs with the likes of Madonna and Ashton Kutcher -- sexually attacked a woman and then threatened to "f**king kill" her if she told anyone ... according to the woman, who's just filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit.

Jena Scaccetti is suing Yehuda Berg -- co-director of L.A.'s famed Kabbalah Centre -- claiming he was her spiritual advisor and Kabbalah teacher when he groped her and threatened her in October 2012.

According to the lawsuit ... Berg -- a married father of five -- invited Scaccetti to dinner at his mother's apartment, claiming he could help heal her kidney stones.

Scaccetti claims Berg complained to her about his life at the Kabbalah Center and began trashing other teachers at the Centre... even describing his sister-in-law as a "c**t" and a "star-f**ker."

In her lawsuit, Scaccetti claims Berg then plied her with Vicodin and alcohol and started hugging her and touching her legs. She says he asked if her genital region "...was Brazilian or shaved" ... and made the move to seal the deal.

The woman claims in the lawsuit she resisted his advances and Berg got angry, saying he would "f**king beat the whole right side of [her] until [she was] blue" and that he would "f**king kill you."

Scaccetti now wants justice with a dollar sign -- she's suing for $15 mil ... plus another $40 mil in punitive damages.

We've reached out to Berg and the Kabbalah Centre ... so far no word back.

When we out someone or something - allege something?

We can expect vehement denials - disbelief and the like.

Then you get blamed - all the textbooks have this.

Then you face the discrediting-procedure of ur life.

Their group lines up against you.

As this is also a violation of group psychology/groups.

Where your allegation is SO threatening?

If enacted it would change the group dynamic/chemistry.

Confuse everyone about their new-actual-role.

Complicating it?

...various group members benefit financially from the accused perp/perps.

So it's in THEIR best interests for the group to remain intact.

But it's still worth it.

It's a way to take-your-power-back.

From those who either stole it or tried to.

Now I know nothing about this particular sitch.

Just talking about my own.

And me, I have a Brazilian.

I am so sick of stupid women like this. Obviously, she did not file a police report and over a year later, with no witnesses, she makes these allegations and for such a ridiculous amount so she is guaranteed plenty of publicity for her claims. Blow it out your ear, you skank!

Seriously?!?    

I call BS! If this really happend she would not have waited well over a year to file suit. I loathe these money/attention hungry liars that make women look bad.
