Who is Brittany Dawn?

Brittany Dawn Davis is a 30-year-old, Texas-based Christian fitness influencer who posts content on Instagram, YouTube and TikTok.

Although Dawn’s uploads primarily focus on health and wellbeing, much of her YouTube content focuses on married life and frequently features her husband, Jordan.

Brittany and Jordan tied the knot last year, a year after meeting. The 30-year-old documented her engagement shoot and bridal shower on social media.

Outside her personal content, Dawn is founder of Instagram account @shelivesfreed – a “ministry showing women there is freedom in imperfection and peace in your broken pieces through Jesus”.

Texas files lawsuit against fitness influencer

Texas attorney general Ken Paxton and his office is suing fitness influencer Brittany Dawn.

As reported by The Daily Mail, a handful of women turned to Brittany Dawn for help recovering from eating disorders but the lawsuit quotes women who claim the influencer made their condition “worse”.

The lawsuit alleges that from 2014, the 30-year-old fitness guru misled customers and sold online fitness packages for as much as $300. The fitness plans were not “individualised” as promised, the lawsuit states, and Brittany “failed to provide the promised coaching and check-ins”.

The lawsuit also alleges the influencer charged shipping fees despite her services being sent electronically. 

The attorney general’s office is seeking between $250,000 and $1 million in penalties and court fees. Likewise, Insider reports attorney general Ken Paxton wants the court to force Brittany to fulfil all services she advertises, and bar her from saying she can give specialist advice to people with eating disorders.

Brittany Dawn fitness services

Insider previously reported Brittany Dawn apologised to 14 people seeking help in 2019 after they alleged she had failed to fulfil promised fitness services.

The report states the influencer offered those customers refunds on the grounds they signed a non-disclosure agreement. However, Dawn later dropped that requirement.

HITC has attempted to reach out to Brittany Davis for comment.
