Pat Roberston Diet Shake Leads to Alleged Death Threat
Posted on Feb 11, 2007
Pat Robertson’s “age-defying” weight loss shake may be more trouble than it’s worth. Phillip Busch, who is suing Robertson for exploiting his image to sell the product on his “700 Club” talk show, says the televangelist walked into court and told him, “I am going to kill you and your family.”
Though his lawyer denied the incident, this isn’t the first time Pat Robertson has been accused of threatening someone’s life.

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - A Texas bodybuilder suing Pat Robertson contends the religious broadcaster walked into federal court for a legal proceeding and told him: “I am going to kill you and your family.’‘
According to a complaint Phillip Busch filed with the Norfolk police, Robertson made the threat when he entered a room in the courthouse Wednesday to be questioned for a deposition.
“There was no such threat,’’ said Robertson’s attorney, Glen Huff.
Busch is suing Robertson for what he says is misappropriation of his image to promote Robertson’s protein diet shake.
