Allred Attacks Boreanaz -- He Claims Extortion

5/4/2010 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's a legal pissing contest erupting over TMZ's story yesterday, that attorney Gloria Allred tried to get a 6 figure settlement for a woman who had an affair with David Boreanaz. Now Allred is threatening to blow the lid off the affair, but Boreanaz' lawyer is calling it an extortion attempt.


Allred claims Boreanaz' lawyer -- legal pit bull Marty Singer -- tried contacting the mistress and only then did Allred get involved.  Allred says, "We discussed the possible resolution of my client's legal claims against Mr. Boreanaz by mediation."  Allred does not say what legal claims the mistress had.

But Singer was more than willing to tell TMZ about Allred's legal claim.  He says Allred's claim was that Boreanaz had promised the mistress that she was "exclusive," even though she knew he was married.
 
As we first reported, the woman had a very short-term liaison with Boreanaz -- 2 or 3 times -- he paid her money but she allegedly kept demanding more, and then threatened to go to the media unless he upped the ante.  Boreanaz told the story publicly yesterday, and shut down Allred's claim.

Now Allred says, "My client has not told her story to the press, but now that Mr. Boreanaz is attacking her she has decided to tell the story of their relationship, so that the truth will come out."

Singer tells TMZ, "On April 23, the woman left a very threatening message that she was going to the media, that my client had not given her enough money ... It is true I did leave a message for the woman because of the extortionist threat she left with my client.  On Monday, I received a call from Gloria Allred and she told me the woman was looking to get paid at least 6 figures."

Stay tuned

Shame on him for cheating - if you want to cheat 1) don;t get married or 2) get divorced. With that said, Allred is out of control. She's the extortionist.

I thought prostitution and extortion were both illegal.

What happen to Gloria Alred. All she is doing now is representing high class hookers who are paid for their services. Yes the guys are dumb and famous, but those girls were paid. When is hush money not considered extortion. Harvey TMZ should check her client list to see how many ho's are her clients. She's the new Heidi Fleiss. All I can say is any other celebrity who had sex with Rachel Uchitel better watch out. They're after your wallet next

I believe that lawyer tried to extort money from the actor. It was obvious she tried to put undo pressure on Tiger to pay the young lady whom he had an affair and appeared on television with Gloria crying the same day Tiger gave his first press conference. The young lady tried her best with her lawyer present.

her career. I have no respect
for her anymore.

why can't these women get a legit job? i am not saying the men are right to cheat, they are not, but damn...all these women want their 15 minutes of fame, so they sleep with a famous person and then they run to Alred to try to get as much $$$ as they can, reality shows, etc....



Now, the men are obviously not using their brain very well... they are famous, do they actually think that sleeping with these non-famous girls will not come out... with the way the media is these days, they are going to get caught...when are they going to learn????? if you want to keep fooling around, then don't get married... live and have fun but once the commitment is made to marry...honor it!!!!!!!

Gloria is disgracing herself and the feminist movement which she claims to represent. Has the feminist movement been relegated to saying, "You slept with my client, who is easy and ok with sleeping with married men now give me money or I will divulge details about the dirty sex!?!" Gloria should be ashamed of herself. Part of the problem, however, is the fact that she is shameless.
