Scott Fischer, the CEO of snack brand Dippin' Dots, has been sued by his ex-girlfriend Amanda Brown for alleged revenge porn. Brown has filed a lawsuit in Oklahoma County District Court, claiming Fischer published her nudes and threatened her multiple times when they were in a relationship, and afterward during a custody battle.

Fischer is hardly the biggest name to be associated with the dangerous act of revenge porn. In 2020, Kim Kardashian revealed that her brother Rob was slapped with a revenge porn lawsuit by Blac Chyna. Later that year, DJ Diplo was also accused of revenge porn by an LA woman. An Arkansas doctor, Philip Sobash, was sued in May 2021 for running a made-to-order revenge porn scheme.

In the case of Fischer, he is accused of sending Brown's nudes to his friends, as well as threatening to put them up on PornHub. Here's everything we know about Fischer and how this lawsuit came to be. 



 

Who is Scott Fischer?

Fischer currently serves as the CEO of Dippin' Dots, a role he has been in for over nine years. In 2012, he acquired the firm when they filed for bankruptcy. Since then, he has led the firm to not just be profitable, but also go international. According to the Dippin' Dots website, the company now operates in 12 different countries, apart from the US. In 2014, he also oversaw the successful acquisition of Doc Popcorn. Fischer is also a noted local philanthropist, having previously played numerous roles at Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Oklahoma (he is no longer associated with the organization). He also supports numerous arts-based organizations, including the Oklahoma City Ballet. 

Fischer's LinkedIn profile says he graduated from the University in Central Oklahoma in 2005, with a BS degree. Before he became the famous face of Dippin' Dots, Fischer was reportedly an oilman in Oklahoma. Following his degree, he then turned to business, where he proved quite adept. A 2019 bio noted that Fischer was the lead negotiator for the creation of the largest Tax Increment Finance (TIF) district in Oklahoma. He was also involved in several multimillion-dollar real estate deals, including the $330 million Pointe Vista community.

The revenge porn lawsuit is hardly Fischer's first brush with the law. In 2018, he crashed his car into two homes in Oklahoma after driving drunk. While he wasn't injured, he was arrested for the incident. Between 2019 and 2020, he was in a relationship with Brown, which he used to win leverage over her in a lawsuit for the custody of the couple's dog. 



 

Brown 'blackmailed to behave'

Brown's lawsuit says the relationship between the two was tumultuous because of Fischer's "dangerous tendency to abuse alcohol". It goes on to claim Fischer solicited racy photos of Brown, by threatening to withhold his "continued financial support". Once the couple split up, Fischer reportedly used those photos to take ownership of the car they co-leased and the dog. On April 12, 2020, Fischer texted Brown, "Leave me the (car). I'll take (the dog). Then I'm going to have someone hold onto the video of your (redacted) and if we ever get into a fight, then it will be released. If we don't, I'll just use it for fun."

On January 14, Fischer allegedly told Brown, "I just sent your nudes out to everyone... watch what I do to you. I'm going to make sure any sex pics, bad pics are sent to your employer, they will soon be sent to our friends, then I'll sue you for (the dog)." Brown further alleges that Fischer threatened to put up her nudes on PornHub, and send them to her father. She claims Fischer also sent nudes to her mother, and texted, "I’m sending this out tomorrow. Then I’m going to file a petition for (the dog)." 

Brown claims in her suit she is hardly the first of Fischer's girlfriends to be treated this way, she claims Fischer had solicited nudes of other women he sent to his friends. She is now seeking damages in excess of $10,000, but that could be the least of Fischer's worries. In Oklahoma, it is a felony "to disseminate without consent the private sexual image of another with the intent to harass, intimidate or coerce." However, his legal team has dismissed the suit. They told TMZ, "This inflammatory lawsuit brought forth by Ms. Brown is nothing more than an attempt to extort Mr. Fischer after he ended their relationship." They also claim "Mr Fischer is disappointed this has become a legal matter despite his efforts to bring about a respectful resolution." 

This lawsuit emerged after a messy battle over the duo's custody for their Chihuahua. Reportedly, Fischer sued Brown in April 2021 "seeking return of the car and dog". According to that suit, Brown fled to Tennessee with both after the two broke up. That suit was filed in Tennessee since that is where Brown currently lives and is currently being heard in court.
