3:53 PM PDT -- Gloria just released a statement ... insisting she will file a counterclaim against Okorocha for defamation.
Allred adds, "Doe #1 and Doe #2 contacted me seeking representation, and we have the evidence to prove it."
"Mr. Okorocha's lawsuit will be dismissed, and we will ultimately recover a judgment against him."
The lawyer who filed a lawsuit against John Travolta on behalf of two masseurs is suing Gloria Allred for allegedly stealing one of his clients, calling her an ambulance chaser and claiming "She ain't been in a courtroom in 20 years."
Okorie Okorocha just filed the lawsuit, claiming Gloria approached the second masseur -- John Doe #2 -- asking him to fire Okorocha and hire her.
As we reported, Okorocha dropped the first masseur -- John Doe #1 -- after TMZ broke the story that Travolta was in New York -- not anywhere near Beverly Hills -- on the date the alleged sexual assault occurred.
In his lawsuit, Okorocha says Doe #1 hired Gloria, and then she made her play for the other masseur.
Okorocha attached text messages to his lawsuit between himself and Doe #2, in which Okorocha wrote, "I can't believe f**king Allred called you." He added, "She ain't been in a courtroom in 20 years. Just doing stupid ass press conference side shows."
