Once known as the infomercial king, Tony Robbins has taken his self-help celebrity status higher than most could ever dream. His website is full of celebrity testimonials from the likes of Hugh Jackman and Usher. Even Oprah is a believer.

But some of the folks who claim to have been severely burned during his signature “firewalking” demonstrations might not be anymore.
