According to a recent report from Screen Rant, online speculation about Sharrieff's possible role in Jen's crimes began circulating after a Reddit user pointed out that Sharrieff previously worked in law.

"I remembered last night that Coach Shah was an attorney for 12 years…Man, you have to wonder what went on behind closed doors in their home. He had to know what was coming down,” the person, writing under the name "Lady Bakes" stated.

In response, another user, under the name "Thunder Snow," suggested that Sharrieff likely knew what his wife was doing.

"I’m starting to think Jen (and Coach because hell yes he had a rough idea) were fully aware of what they were doing and sadly, deep down, don’t think of it as stealing or wrong, but a part of acceptable business practices in the U.S.,” they suspected.

Also on Reddit, another user, named "Oh Meatball Head," slammed Jen, who is Polynesian, for her alleged crimes against the elderly and her other supposed victims, giving a nod to her past suggestion that she was being targeted due to her race.

“In theory I get her irritation about the microaggressions people can exhibit towards wealthy [people of color] but knowing she said that with full awareness that she was stealing is just sick and undermining," the user pointed out.

The same user added that Sharrieff, who is Black, "of course" knew what she was doing or at least had an "idea" about what was reportedly going on.
