KISSEMMEE, Fla. — Florida dominatrix Goddess Jude has been hit with a lawsuit claiming she drained a former client’s bank account and credit cards of more than $500,000 and took over ownership of his townhouse — all occurring during their four-year sadomasochistic relationship.

Goddess Jude describes herself on her website as a happy, playful, sadistic, kinky professional dominatrix based in Orlando, Florida. She enjoys spanking, flogging, whipping, bondage, shackles, nipple torture, cock-and-ball torture and use of electrical stimulation, among numerous other fetishes.

The client suing her, 68-year-old Alex Abrams, alleges in a suit seeking return of assets that Goddess Jude should be found liable for civil theft, unjust enrichment and conversion, as well of abuse, neglect and exploitation of elderly persons because he was above 60 years old when he first called on for her services.

Abrams met Goddess Jude about four years ago after divorcing his wife of 32 years, according to the lawsuit. Upon meeting, she advised Abrams, then 63, that it was of the highest honor to be her "financial slave."

“[A]brams opened new joint financial accounts with [her] and made [her] an authorized user on his credit card accounts,” the suit filed at Florida state court said.

Later, Goddess Jude was able to persuade Abrams to transfer a Casselberry, Fla., townhome worth $100,000 to her, Abrams’ suit said.

Goddess Jude “continued to reward Abrams with sexual favors," states the lawsuit, which also noted that "Abrams would be punished" if he failed to adhere to the dominatrix's financial requirements.

But just several months ago, Abrams had an apparent change of heart and hired an attorney, Brian Mark, to get back money and his house that he exchanged for her performance of duties.

In the suit, Mark said that given Abrams mental and physical condition during their BDSM relationship, his client was exploited. The suit claimed Abrams suffered from clinical depression, dementia and Alzheimer's disease when he added Goddess Jude’s name to his financial accounts and signed over the house.

The suit claims Goddess Jude violated a Florida statute that makes it illegal to exploit an elderly person or disabled adult. An elderly person is defined as someone 60 years of age or older who is suffering from the infirmities of aging, according to state law.

Adult industry attorney Lawrence Walters of Walters Law Group, who represents Goddess Jude, said that the parties voluntarily exchanged gifts during a long-term personal relationship, "and now Mr. Abrams wants to use the courts to assist him in second guessing his financial decisions."

"The judicial system should not be used as a tool for revenge by former romantic partners," Walters told XBIZ. "Our client had no knowledge of any alleged dementia, and he was never declared incompetent.  

"We believe the claims are frivolous.  If a suit like this succeeds, it threatens the validity of any voluntary sub/dom lifestyle relationship." 

Goddess Jude, also known as Judith DeLucenay, was the subject of a local TV news investigation in March after her neighbors claimed she was improperly running her dominatrix business out of a home in a residential area without a permit.

As a result of the news piece, Orlando's code enforcement division and Central Florida's vice squad launched their own investigations into Goddess Jude’s BDSM business.
