Formerly known as “Dr. Love,” Love-Robinson served time in jail in 2019 for pretending to be a doctor and defrauding an elderly “patient” out of $35,000. According to local news station WBPF, back in 2016, Love-Robinson was exposed for pretending to be "Dr. Malachi Love-Robinson, PHD, HHP-C, AMP-C" co-founder, president and CEO of New Birth New Life Holistic and Alternative Medical Center & Urgent Care Center in West Palm Beach. He was 18 years old at the time, but claimed to be 25.

Dr. Love was charged with a third-degree felony for practicing medicine without a license and was issued several citations by the Department of Health.

Additionally, in 2015, when he was 17, he was caught posing as a gynecologist in a pregnant woman's exam room at St. Mary's Medical Center Campus in West Palm Beach. Police said at the time that he had been roaming the halls for more than a month, but that he hadn't committed a crime.
