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

WOW. And this, ladies & gentleman, is why Gloria Allred should be DISBARRED. I am so happy Boreanez came out & did not let Allred extort money from another person, just like she did with Tiger Woods & Rachel Uchatel. How interesting that Boreanez' affair was rumored months ago to be with Uchatel. Gloria is disgusting and please answer this, how on earth, if that guy who tried to get letterman to buy a screenplay treatment about his dirty behavior, was arrested & prosecuted, is this ANY different??



DISBAR GLORIA ALLRED!!!

Has anyone noticed all the ambulances in front of Allred. She exemplifies ambulance chaser. I'm getting really tired of all these mistresses claiming to be victims, they are willing participants and they certainly should not be entitled to monetary gain from the affair.

Why do these whores think we want to hear their side of the story? Especially this one - she is definitely a hooker and nothing more. It's all lies anyways. And Gloria Allred should be ashamed of herself - nothing more than an ambulance chaser and assistant blackmailer.

Ok, surely there must be some kind of "conspiracy to extort" theory applicable here? Allred does half, her client does the other half, and it ends up being extortion if done by only one person. With that Tiger Woods stripper twinkie, Gloria threatened and then when no money came in, stripper twinkie released the text mails. Now, she's threatening to have her client release damaging info unless Boreanaz pays up. Does she "direct" her client to spill? Does she tell the client "go ahead if you want to" when the ploy doesn't work?



Allred is bottom-feeding s***. She's a pox on the legal profession and I'm humiliated to even be in the same profession. Surely the Code of Ethics applicable to lawyers in California requires attorneys to advocate claims that have some minimal legal merit?



Can't Allred be censured or disbarred for this crap? IMO, she needs to be stopped before she ruins even more lives. And I don't think it is a viable defense of her actions that "they already ruined their own lives." She's seizing on personal failures and embarrassing people before the entire world rather than leaving them the hell alone to pick up the pieces of their private lives.



If somebody dug up something REALLY dirrty about HER and had their attorney threaten to make it public unless she paid up, you'd hear her screaming at the top of her lungs that it was extortion.



Hmmm. Sounds interesting. In the meantime, will TMZ or the National Enquirer lead the charge, publishing some, withholding the rest, just to see what happens? I know I'd be riveted.



When I wasn't laughing myself silly, of course.

I think Allred has crossed a line and is guilty of extortion. This is absolutely no different from the Letterman case except for the fact that as a Lawyer she should have been aware that what she was doing was extortion. It will be interesting to hear what Harvey has to say about this on the live show today.

Rachel Allred. They've apparently found a niche they want to exploit. Something tells me their luck has run out.

The only thing going public will do is expose this whore for who she is. It'll show the world what a low class sleazy woman she is. It will only embarrass herself and make her look like a fool. Go for it.

Gloria Allred is nothing more than a paid extortionist. She should be prosecuted for extortion, what she does is no different than a common blackmailer, however she does has a law degree so I guess that makes it legal....not!!! Double set of standards!!!!

This has become the latest get-rich-quick scheme:
1. Have an affair with a married celebrity;
2. Threaten to go to the media and 'tell all' unless you get a big fat financial payoff;
3. Hire Gloria Allred and hold a press conference, sobbing that you've been used and exploited while Gloria pats your hand and expresses outrage at how you've been used and exploited.
Gloria is single-handedly setting back feminism by a hundred years.
