5:05PM PST: Gloria tells TMZ, "Mr. Okorocha's representations are false, outrageous and defamatory," adding both John Doe 1 and 2 contacted her office and she did not solicit either of them. 

Gloria is demanding a retraction ... or else.

Gloria Allred "illegally" seduced John Travolta's accusers ... and convinced them to fire their attorney ... so says the scorned ex-lawyer.

Okorie Okorocha -- who represented John Doe #1 and John Doe #2 in their separate sexual assault lawsuits against Travolta -- says Allred had been soliciting his clients while he was still working on their cases.

Okorocha claims he warned John Doe #2 that Allred's actions were "unethical and against the law" ... but it didn't matter -- both Does dropped Okorocha and immediately signed with Allred anyway.

Okorocha did not say if he will pursue legal action against Allred -- but did pay her a compliment ... saying, "I know that the case is gonna go away quietly because Miss Allred has successfully made cases go away quietly." 

"I'm confident [both accusers] will get justice, it'll just be an under the table payment."

I believe these people were contacted, maybe not by Gloria herself but you can bet someone in her office contacted them! Seems strange to me that alot of her clients fail to report things to the police yet will take a payoff. It's all about the money! I would respect Gloria if she actually took her cases into the courtroom instead of holding these shameless news conferences with her clients. Just seems like extortion using a lawyer. You know when they hire Gloria they're only after money not justice.

She's a nasty piece of work.. I used to work in the same building where she has her offices on Wilshire Blvd. I don't know anyone who had any respect for her. She was a laughing stock and SO full of herself. She would get in the elevator and announce "I was on TV last night, did anyone see me?" She would get off and everyone would roll their eyes and snicker.

A statement is not defamatory if it is true.

The first guy dropped his suit to change the date which would have affected the second accuser's story.... essentially, TWICE has the first one been blown out of the water - once by all the alibis including the FAA and again by the second accuser... Via CNN: John Doe #1 withdrew from the lawsuit after it was learned Travolta was in New York, not Los Angeles, on January 16, the day he had alleged the massage incident took place.

Okorocha told CNN the date should have been January 15, but the mistake would have hampered the chances of John Doe #2 in court. He also said "personality conflicts" with John Doe #1 contributed to the decision.

Okay people and TMZ... first of all Mr. Okorocha is NOT the right person to talk about "unethical" behavior. He claims to be Dr. DUI on a popular website where attorneys are reviewed by clients. Mr. Okorocha has gone to extreme behavior by posting his clients names and personal information after he receives negative reviews. He follows by contacting their administrators and having all negative reviews removed. Okorie!!! YO! Aren't you gonna respond to this like you do on other sites? Come on?! Defend yourself!!! What you gotta say ma wig? Ms. Allred...please do a background check on this thug and put him on blast!!!

Now they they've taken up Allred, I'm more inclined to believe that they are lying and that all they want is a quick payday. Allred is a legal extortionist. I don't even like Travolta, but I seriously think these people are trying to get money.

How convenient that both clients went to Allred without her doing anything. Then why didn't they go to Allred in the first place?
