Rockstar Cheer Suicide: Scott Foster Takes Control In …

Earlier today, my news media reported the suicide of Scott Foster – the owner and founder of Greenville, South Carolina-based Rockstar Cheer, a nationally ranked fitness center.

Foster, 49, killed himself in his car Monday afternoon in a Paris state parking lot — the victim of a “self-inflicted gunshot wound,” according to law enforcement sources who spoke to WYFF TV’s digital media manager Stephanie Moore. – 4 (NBC – Greenville/Spartanburg, SC).

As I mentioned in our cover, there is an active investigation by the sheriff of Greenville County into the death of Foster, although the dimensions of that inquiry are not completely clear – and this media has received conflicting reports about the possible scope.

“The sheriff’s office investigation may not be the only investigation related to Foster, either,” I added.

According to multiple alleged victims, their family members, law enforcement sources and attorneys representing individuals involved in the case, Foster was looking at the business end of a multi-jurisdictional investigation into (among other things) misconduct allegations. Sexual dysfunction in teenage girls. This investigation was active at the time of Foster’s death at 12:30 p.m. EDT on Monday — and remains active as of this writing.

Because several of the alleged victims in this case are under the age of eighteen, this media outlet is not identifying them. If the alleged victims choose to come forward and identify themselves, I am committed to helping them tell their stories.

According to my sources, Foster’s criminal investigation was reportedly part of a larger investigation into Rockstar Cheer — one I’m told is being led by the US Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Special Investigations Unit (HSI). . In fact, one source close to the investigation told me HSI reportedly had an undercover operative working inside the facility in an attempt to prove various allegations against Foster and other Rockstar employees. .

Many of our listeners will recall HSI leading one of the largest investigations into the Thornblade scandal, which involved wealthy Upstate men and women accused of having sex with their partners. small. No charges were ever filed in connection with that investigation because, according to the source, “the only evidence (guardian) found in connection with the investigation showed sexual relations between consenting adults.”

Will you get the same result from these questions? Especially considering the person who was allegedly his top target killed himself?

It’s too early to say, obviously, but a source familiar with the investigation made it clear Wednesday afternoon that Foster is not the “only target” of the ongoing investigation.

While it’s unclear what specific allegations investigators are pursuing, several sources have provided us with photos and videos of Foster sharing with underage girls — photos and videos consistent with behavior that could (at least) be interpreted as can contribute to the delinquency of minors.

Meanwhile, social media was flooded last Wednesday with first-hand accounts from other alleged victims — including a former student who wrote that Foster put her in “numerous uncomfortable situations.”

In addition, this newspaper received the record from the US All Star Federation (USASF) – a national organization that is responsible for “creating consistent fair rules and competition standards” and “providing the safest possible environment for fun and Dance for athletes to train and compete.”

According to these records, Foster was disciplined by the association for numerous violations – resulting in Rockstar Cheer being placed on probation from 2017 to 2021.


A native of Mount Washington, Kentucky, Foster was the dean of the University of Louisville in the late 1990s.

Surprisingly, he decided to pursue a degree in criminal justice – and planned to work for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

“I was fully prepared to join the FBI when I finished my masters, but, life threw me a curve ball and the thrill of the competition was presented as a viable job,” he wrote in his online biography. “I knew I could be better than an FBI agent; but I wanted to make a career out of something I would love every day.

According to Foster, “what really drove me was working with young people and making a positive impact on their lives.”

Foster has lived in Greenville since 1999. He married his wife and business partner, Kathy Foster, in 2001 and co-founded their company six years later.

The Fosters – who have two daughters and a son together – split up before he killed himself.
