Two months ago I went into partnership with a woman to host firearm training classes. We had an agreement via text message that I would be paid 10 percent of the total proceeds from the second class. This was agreed upon before I created more events and promoted for her to get clients. I typed up a contract stating what we had agreed upon in person and I sent it to her via email. Once I did that, she cancelled all the events that I had created with my name on it and will not respond to my emails, texts, or calls. I want to use my large social media platform to explain the situation but I don't want to get in trouble for slander, even though I am not lying about any of this. I don't care about being paid, but I do think that people should know what a shady individual she is.
Depending on what you say and the truthfulness of the statements, you could always expose yourself to a lawsuit. I would suggest that you contact an attorney who deals in contracts to see if you have any valid claims against her for your business disputes.
You could be sued but if you limit your posts to actual events which you can prove you should be able to beat any allegations that are brought against you.
