Copperfield's Attorney Accuses Feds of Improper Leak

10/28/2007 6:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David CopperfieldDavid Chesnoff, attorney for David Copperfield, tells TMZ that all the allegations against his client are false and that investigators in the case improperly leaked information to the Seattle Times.

"David Copperfield has never struck, forced himself or threatened any woman," Chesnoff said. "If some woman told anyone that he did, then she is not being truthful."

Chesnoff pointed out that these are not the first allegations leaked in this case which turned out to be false. He tells TMZ, "The media previously reported that the FBI seized $2 million in cash from Mr. Copperfield's Las Vegas warehouse, only to be contradicted subsequently by an FBI statement that the media reports were untrue and that $2 million was neither found nor seized."

Chesnoff went on to say, "We have been asked to respect the confidentiality of the investigation, but clearly law enforcement officials are not doing the same. At least three federal officials have been cited as sources in a Saturday Seattle Times story containing information about allegations being made. This not only unfairly and falsely defames my client, but it undermines the integrity of the entire investigation."

Copperfield, Chesnoff points out, has no blemishes in his past and is taking these allegations very hard, saying, "It is very hurtful for him to hear and read these horrible, untrue allegations being made against him by a still unnamed woman. As I have previously said, David Copperfield has never forced himself on any woman. He is not that type of person. He is a true gentleman in every sense of the word."

I'm sure he is taking it very hard, who wouldn't.
That don't make him innocent or guilty. He picks up on young girls, this was bound to happen sooner or later.

1 - you are the total creep idiot. David gets all he wants - he is worth $200M - people that smart know platinum sluttie gold diggers abound - 1 surfaced - she'll serve time.

PS - having lived in Seattle the Seattle Times is fishwrap at best - worse than NY Times.

huh? He is worth 200 million so he must not be guilty?
The news has been in all newspapers, television, internet.
The Seattle times plays very little in this alleged crime. I first caught wind of it in through the grape vine in Nevada Not Seattle.

The Davids' rule -- the Seattle Times is hated even in Seattle.

Howie on Deal or No Deal has 26 models that are part of the show - sue him because they say hello to him and/or fire them all since they are beautiful?

what a petty thing to be whining about at a time like this in the guys life
If he is not guilty don't worry about how we found out.
There are many players in this, Employees both on the island and in the states, officers and family members of the alleged victim, This is desperate and makes me wonder.

Closeted FREAK! Not 'cause he's gay... just 'cause he's David Copperfield. You're going doooooooooooooown, Copperfield. Faster than Jake Gyllenhaal on any hot, young guy in private; you're going down.

The radical liberal Times leaked the lies since the lying tramp is from Seattle - other news outlets sleazed onto it as they do esp. TMZ.

People with $200M are super careful - most like to give it away & aid people & do the right thing - sometimes grifters like the racist bitch that lied about the Duke LaCrosse team crop up though & must be dealt with though.
