Has it been confirmed that Conor did or did not sing happy birthday to her at that show?
people that were there said they dont remember him singing happy birthday to anyone. but i dont think that specific detail was addressed from conor’s camp. not to me anyway. but i’m assuming since the rest is BS that would be too.
On December 7, 2011, she posted on Facebook that Bright Eyes is her favorite band. The posts were deleted in January 2014, but not before Oberst was able to make note of them in his complaint. In addition, Faircloth’s new Myspace page is seemingly dedicated to Oberst’s bands and his label Saddle Creek Records, which conflicts with her Tumblr statements about how she’s “moved on from keeping up with these bands.”
And there have been other inconsistencies with how Faircloth has portrayed her life in comments sections in ways that aren’t related to Oberst. Sometimes she says that she gave birth to twins at 17 that she gave up for adoption. But in 2012 she won a local contest sharing her favorite memory: teaching her twins how to walk. Another time she said it was her sister who had twins, but one died in the womb. From the looks of her ex-husband’s Facebook page, he does have a boy-girl set of twins that he raises without her. Sometimes he posts snarky jokes about deadbeat mothers.
On top of the dubious Internet history, people who know her personally have come forward with their stories about getting catfished by Faircloth, who posed as a boy named “Zac” in Yahoo chats. Zac professed to be a fan of Saddle Creek bands and claimed to know Conor and Matt Oberst. He mysteriously committed suicide in 2002 just before he was supposed to meet up with other fans at a Desaparecidos show. Friends learned of the suicide from Faircloth—then known by her maiden name, Finneran—who said she was Zac’s best friend. It was later discovered that Zac and Faircloth were the same person.
The girl who said she was catfished by Faircloth claimed to have attended a North Carolina Bright Eyes show with Faircloth in 2003:
[Faircloth] also told me about a time, which I think it wasn’t her 16th bday or at a show, in her version it was in the classroom when [Conor] came to visit Matt, that he sang happy birthday to her.
At the show in question in 2003, it was actually a Bright Eyes show, and I was there. I skipped my prom to see Bright Eyes and Sorry About Dresden was playing, and drove from out of town to come to NC because it would probably be the only time ever I would get to see Dresden. (It was) She and I made plans to meet, and we did, she was there with her best friend M, and her boyfriend X. She introduced me to Matt Oberst, and I actually know members who play with the Bright Eyes touring band, so I hung out after the show with them. If I remember correctly, she left before I did….even if she didn’t she came and left with her BOYFRIEND, who rode in the same car as she did.
Oh my god, is the fanfic available online to read? That actually sounds so ridiculous and weird and sad i want to read it...
i’m not posting it. it’s not online.
Did this woman really know Matt Oberst as a former student of his or was it all a lie and made up? I am just curious because overall she seems like a really obsessed fan with all things related to Saddle Creek Records and Conor Oberst. My friend was thinking that maybe she lied about that too in its entirety to make the story more interesting to read.
that was actually the only true detail…. while he was her teacher, he never talked to her again once she was out of middle school. if she did go to the desa concert she says this happened at, she absolutely didnt go with him or as his guest in any sort of way. he was never a ‘mentor’ to her or anything else she was saying. he would never take a student, current or former to meet conor backstage!
i’ve read the story she allegedly paid someone to write. it’s a long detailed fan fic during the zombie apocalypse and in it conor is a younger brother figure and matt is a sexual partner. disturbing is a gross understatement tbh.
It's not like Conor Oberst hasn't done things to support people / women before. I don't know why him wanting to donate any money gained from this suit is now being held against him. I am glad evidence is now in his favour.
thank you for such a respectful reply to my false rape statistic message! I have been reading your blog you don't seem like someone who is simply denying the abuse in order go preserve a celebrity's image.
thank you! i really tried to get all sides of the story before going against her and her claims.
I hope for you to keep in mind that .6% of rape accusations are false. that means 99.4% of rape accusations are true.
i have that it mind which is why my first instinct and stance was to take her side fully until finding out proof that it was a complete lie.
This isn't really a question to you or anything but I wonder how her husband feels... I mean seriously, this is a grown woman with a family and she's doing this shit. If I were him I would be out the door. Or maybe he's just as delusional as she is and therefore entirely supportive of her... Very odd.
i wonder if he even knows? he works on the road 3/4 weeks a month doesnt give much time to get filled in on everything. he’s like 15 years older than her and very loving and protective of her and their son. the poor baby is very very sick and it could be they’re just focusing on their baby and putting this aside. or that she’s letting him focus on their baby and pretending this isnt even happening. who knows? she told me he’s been supportive of her through the whole thing and he’s known about it but who knows how much truth is in that?
will we find out the full story? when abouts will the court case happen? also, who are you in contact with (as you were asking for the print screens, i was wondering who for)
yes the full story will eventually come out when it’s able to. at this point a court date isnt set yet. it’s a civil trial and they take longer to play out than criminal cases. it could take years, but hopefully the high profile nature of the case will speed it along…. and i cant answer that. ~people~. someone asked me if i could get them and i tried my best to get them for them.
