The Twin Flames Universe Controversy: New Netflix Documentary Puts Spotlight on the Online Spirituality School

in Scandals by

Netflix has recently released a thought-provoking documentary, offering an in-depth exploration of the controversies and legal battles surrounding the Twin Flames Universe (TFU). Titled “Twin Flames Universe: Behind the Controversy,” the documentary provides a comprehensive and unbiased look into the teachings, followers, and the ensuing controversy that has surrounded this spiritual movement.

In the realm of spiritual teachings and New Age beliefs, the concept of twin flames has gained significant popularity over the years. Many individuals yearn for a deep, soulful connection with their perfect partner, and the idea of a twin flame promises just that – an everlasting, transformative bond. 

The documentary delves into the origins of the TFU and introduces viewers to the founders, Jeffrey and Shaleia. It examines the foundational principles of TFU, particularly the concept of twin flames and its profound impact on those seeking soulful connections. Interviews with current and former TFU members shed light on their experiences and offer differing perspectives on the teachings and practices.

Amidst the myriad of twin flame ideologies and teachings, the Twin Flames Universe (TFU) has emerged as a prominent presence. Led by spiritual teachers, Jeff and Shaleia, TFU claims to offer guidance and support for those seeking their twin flame connection. However, TFU has not been immune to controversy, which has left many individuals questioning the authenticity and integrity of their teachings.

Jeff and Shaleia, founders of the Twin Flame Universe

To ensure objectivity, the documentary includes interviews with critics of TFU. These experts provide insights into the potential dangers of spiritual manipulation, financial exploitation, and the formative characteristics of cult-like behavior. The contrasting perspectives allow viewers to form their own judgments and interpretations, promoting critical thinking and nuanced discussions.

In addition to exploring the controversies and teachings, the documentary delves into the legal battle initiated by a former TFU student. The case is followed closely, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the courtroom drama and the implications it holds for similar spiritual communities. Legal experts comment on the case, providing valuable insights into the legal and ethical aspects involved.

One of the primary sources of controversy surrounding TFU revolves around the financial aspect of their teachings. Critics argue that TFU places a heavy emphasis on paid programs, coaching sessions, and retreats, which can be financially burdensome for many individuals. Additionally, accusations of coercion and manipulation have been made, suggesting that TFU engages in fear-based marketing techniques to incentivize expensive purchases. Some ex-members have alleged that the Jeff and Shaleia pressured members to transition into the opposite gender and encouraged members to stay with their “twin flame” even if it meant being in an abusive relationship. 

Another point of contention lies in the alleged cult-like atmosphere that has been associated with TFU. Former followers and students have shared stories of feeling pressured to remain within the community, isolating themselves from friends and family who do not subscribe to the TFU teachings. Jeff has also made claims that he is the second coming of the Messiah and both Jeff and Shaleia have changed their last name to Divine. These reports have raised concerns about the potential psychological impact on vulnerable individuals, as well as the potential for exploitation. 

Furthermore, TFU has been criticized for promoting harmful beliefs and practices. Some argue that their teachings foster codependent dynamics, encouraging individuals to rely solely on their twin flame for happiness and self-fulfillment. This can be problematic, as it may discourage individuals from cultivating their own independence and personal growth. The pressure to be with a person’s twin flame as resulted in some members being served with protection orders. 

Twin Flames Universe has issued a statement about the allegations made in Netflix documentary. According to their statement, the allegations are false and promise to be transparent about confronting the allegation. The statement said, “We take seriously recent allegations implying we wield inappropriate control over our community members. After a careful review of both media coverage and recent productions, we are saddened that so much effort has gone into taking swipes at an organization and community founded on love and mutual respect. The allegations levied against Twin Flames Universe not only distort our true aims, methods, and curriculums but also misrepresent the autonomy of our community members, who are free to engage with our resources as they see fit. We are committed to confronting these allegations in an open and accountable manner.”

“Behind the Controversy” serves as an invitation for viewers to contemplate the broader issues raised by the TFU controversy. It raises questions about the influence of spiritual teachings, the vulnerability of seekers, the role of accountability, and the need for regulation within spiritual communities. The documentary prompts viewers to reflect on their own spiritual journeys and encourages them to approach teachings critically while nurturing their own discernment.

The makeup brand announced its commitment to making donations to organizations providing urgent care on the ground. These include the International Red Cross/Red Crescent Societies, the Magen David Adom (Israel’s national emergency service), the Palestinian Red Crescent Society, and UNICEF. By supporting these organizations, Rare Beauty aims to contribute to the provision of urgent medical relief and resources to the children of Gaza.

Controversy and Backlash

After Rare Beauty announced its intentions to support those affected by the conflict, the brand faced criticism and calls for a boycott. Some individuals questioned the authenticity of the statement, while others accused Rare Beauty’s CEO, Scott Friedman, of being a Zionist. Claims were made that the donations would indirectly fund the ongoing conflict in Gaza. These controversies surrounding the brand’s involvement in the Israel-Hamas conflict have sparked heated discussions on social media. People took to social media to express their anger over the announcement.

Many of their employees have been directly impacted by the recent violence. Recognizing the diversity within their community, Rare Beauty called for kindness and compassion among its followers during these difficult times.

Selena Gomez’s Stand: From Neutrality to Support

Selena Gomez, the face behind Rare Beauty, initially faced criticism for her neutral stance on the Israel-Hamas conflict. However, she later clarified her position, expressing her sorrow over the violence and her desire to protect all people, especially children. Gomez acknowledged that a social media post alone would not be enough to bring an end to the conflict but emphasized her commitment to standing against hate and violence. Her first post on her Instagram said, “I’ve been taking a break from social media because my heart breaks to see all of the horror, hate, violence, and terror that’s going on in the world. People being tortured and killed or any act of hate toward any one group is horrific. We need to protect ALL people, especially children and stop the violence for good. I’m sorry if my words will never be enough for everyone or a hashtag. I just can’t stand by innocent people getting hurt. That’s what makes me sick. I wish I could change the world. But a post won’t. Love, Selena.”

Netflix Docuseries, “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness,” Brings Renewed Interest in the Mysterious Disappearance of Don Lewis

carole Baskin's ex husband's case reopned

As the popularity of the Tiger King continues to grow so does the interest in the unsolved case of the disappearance of Carole Baskin’s ex-husband, Don Lewis. Lewis was last seen in August of 1997 and his family has believed for years that Carole Baskin had something to do with it.

Don Lewis’ family were not alone in this thinking.The documentary, “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness” released on Netflix briefly covered the disappearance of Carole’s second husband, Don Lewis. Don’s ex-wife and his children firmly believe that Carole killed Don to get access to his money. Don was a multi-millionaire but was notoriously stingy with his money. After his disappearance, his van was found at an airport. It was abandoned and there was a theory that Carole put forward that he has run off to his property in Costa Rica.

She had him declared dead and ultimately inherited almost all of his wealth. According to his ex-wife and children, they were left with next to nothing thanks to Carole. They believe she cut up his body and used an onsite meat grinder to dispose of his body. The mystery surrounding his disappearance still prevails. There have been no new leads over the last few decades.

However, the popularity of this docuseries has brought about a renewed interest in Don’s disappearance. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has reopened the case of Carole Baskin’s missing husband.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister tells TIME,“I would be foolish if I didn’t take advantage of [the show’s] popularity and put the message out that if you think you know something, you should contact the sheriff’s office. This is very important to us.”

Chronister says that he is hoping that anyone who was involved with Big Cat Rescue, then named Wildlife on Easy Street, at the time of Lewis’ disappearance might be able to offer new information or potential evidence into what might have happened to Lewis.



Will Celebrity Intervention Help get Joe Exotic Released from Prison?

in Scandals by

When Covid made millions of Americans homebound, there was no better time for Netflix to drop one of the most bonkers documentaries ever released on the streaming service.The “Tiger King” has become a meme-worthy obsession amongst the young, the old, the famous and the not so famous. However, there is now a movement to calling to free Joe Exotic and a lot of celebrities are on board.

joe exotic


If you haven’t watched the whole series, then stop reading. We highly recommend you tune in to watch the absolutely bananas world of big cat ownership. The series follows a group of people that each own a roadside zoo. Some of the subjects in the documentary don’t really like that term. Most the individuals featured in this documentary are outlandish each in their own way but none are more flamboyant than Joseph Maldonado-Passage (born Joseph Schreibvogel) otherwise known as Joe Exotic.

The docuseries, Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness, predominately focuses on the extremely antagonistic relationship between Joe Exotic and his nemesis, Carole Baskin. Joe, an out gay man, was shunned by his family for his lifestyle. He drove off a bridge when he was younger and broke his back. While he was rehabbing in Florida, he met the person that would change his life forever. He became very close with the manager of Lion Country Safari. This close friend would bring home baby animals and Joe would play with them. He fell in love with the wild animals.

After his brother was killed by a semi-truck driver, Joe took the settlement money and opened up a pet store in his brother’s honor. That eventually led Joe to purchase a huge horse farm in Oklahoma that he then converted into a roadside zoo. According to almost all animal rights activists, roadside zoos are cruel and are notorious for animal abuse.  People like Carole Baskin have petitioned to have these zoos shut down.

He first gained notoriety and the ire of fellow big cat enthusiast, Carole Baskin, by traveling around with baby cubs to different malls and charge people to pet and pose for photos with the baby animals. Carole did everything she could to stop Joe from making these appearances. She would email each mall thousands of times pleading with them to stop Joe. Eventually most malls gave in, and cancelled the cub petting. Carole herself was also once a big cat breeder but saw the error of her ways and decided to get these operations shut down. Hence, an epic feud was born.

After multiple lawsuits on both sides, Carole and her new husband finally won a one million dollar settlement from Joe. The issue, according to Joe, was that he didn’t have the funds to pay the settlement. He tried transferring ownership of his assets over to his parents so then Carole and her husband would then go after his parents to try and get their settlement. For years, Joe had also been threatening Carole and her husband on his YouTube channel. The animosity dragged on for years.

Now depending on who you believe (team Carole or Team Joe) a murder for hire plot was hatched and Joe paid a park employee of his zoo to head down to Carole’s Big Cat Sanctuary to kill her as she rode her bike around her property. According to Joe, he was set up but since he had a habit of threatening Carole, it didn’t seem to far fetched that he would take those threats all the way. However, Carole’s ex-husband disappeared under very mysterious circumstances years ago and Joe was adamant that Carole murdered him and fed him to their tigers. Joe believed he was being set up and the Carole was the real murderer between the two of them.

Joe ultimately fled Oklahoma and was arrested in Florida as he hid out with his current husband Dillon Passage. In 2019, he was found guilty on 19 counts. The counts included hiring hit men to murder Baskin at least twice, killing tigers and general fraud. As of right now, he is serving a 22-year sentence in federal prison

Despite being a convicted felon, Joe has gained a huge amount of support from the documentary. Some of this support might actually lead to his release. Since the series blew up, numerous celebrities have offered to play him in the film version of the story, posted about him on their social, and have covered his story of their podcasts.

Cardi B has been one of his biggest supporters. She has live tweeted her thoughts about Joe’s story since the documentary hit Netflix. She also stated that she would love to start a GoFundMe campaign for him but according to the rules of GoFundMe, people are not allowed to raise funds on behalf of individuals convicted of a violent crime.


Even Kim Kardashian has joined the ranks of people who are fascinated with Joe. She also tweeted about the series saying,”Wow the amount of texts I’ve gotten about Tiger King since I tweeted about it all have mentioned their belief that Carol killed her husband!”

She followed that tweet up with, “What are your thoughts? Do you think Carol killed him? (Sic)”

With the launch of the Kim Kardashian West Justice Project, could Joe be her next cause? Kim has turned her focus to criminal justice reform and has currently experienced success with the release of Alice Marie Johnson. In 1996 Johnson received a life sentence, without parole, for working as a “phone mule” for a group of drug dealers. Her sentence was very extreme and Kim successfully petitioned to get her released from prison.

As Joe and Carole’s stories are still unfolding, it remains to be seen whether all this celebrity support would mean an eventual release. So which team on you on? Team Carole or Team Joe?
