John Travolta masseur's lawyer suing their new legal representation
The lawyer who filed a lawsuit against John Travolta on behalf of two unnamed masseurs is suing their new legal representation.
23 May 2012 Original prosecution attorney Okorie Okorocha has accused Gloria Allred of stealing one of his clients.
He filed the lawsuit, claiming Gloria approached the anonymous second masseur - John Doe #2 - asking him to dismiss Okorie and hire her.
Okorie dropped the first masseur - known only as John Doe #1 - after it emerged that Travolta was in New York and not Beverly Hills, California as stated, on the date the alleged sexual assault occurred.
In his lawsuit, Okorie says Doe #1 hired Gloria, and then she approached the other masseur.
He attached text messages to his lawsuit between himself and John Doe #2.
He wrote: "I can't believe f**king Allred called you. She ain't been in a courtroom in 20 years. Just doing stupid ass press conference side shows."
In a statement Gloria insisted she will file a counterclaim against him for defamation.
She added: "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."
