After this weeks shocking Roy Moore yearbook revelation and several recent bar investigations, celebrity lawyer and feminist Gloria Allred is once again stretching the bounds of the law, and her profession’s ethics in attempting to save her own professional reputation, as she attempts to try to discredit Hologram USA CEO and FilmOn owner, Alki David. In the face of sworn testimony, the civil rights attorney is denying allegations that her firm offered to pay off a potential witness and plaintiff in her battle with the entrepreneur. The rebuttals are the attorney’s official response to the California State Bar opening an inquiry into her connection to the bribe.
The inquiry into Allred has been confirmed to David’s Los Angeles-based entertainment attorney, Barry K. Rothman, in a State Bar letter. Despite Allred’s claims of her innocence, the bar still decided to open the inquiry, after a former employee of David’s claimed that he was offered money to help her firm in its litigation against the CEO. That former employee Malik Spellman, is perhaps best known for his work on A&E’s reality series “The Peacemaker”.
Spellman, who worked as an independent contractor for FilmOn and Hologram USA in 2010 and 2011, stated in this declaration that a man who claimed to work for Allred’s law office called him in October. The man allegedly asked Spellman how long he worked for David, how much he was paid and what his relationship was like with the billionaire. Spellman also explained that the man solicited him as a witness in the case and stated that if he helped Allred’s firm in the litigation against his former boss, he could receive money.
The former employee, Malik Spellman, informed Rothman’s office about the alleged bribe during a surprise call in October. After hearing the news, Rothman felt that it was his duty to notify the bar of the allegations. He added that he didn’t report the allegation to hurt anyone, but felt it was important to inform the bar of Spellman’s concerns. Alki David offered us this YouTube link where he recorded Mr. Spellman.
Allred has publicly renounced the allegations, and further asserted that she has never even hired an investigator in connection to Mr. David. The lawyer also insisted that since her firm, Allred, Maroko & Goldberg launched 41 years ago, it’s employees have never offered to pay anyone for their testimony, and never will. Last night during a rally in Pensacola Florida, President Donald Trump mocked Gloria Allred saying “Anytime you see her, you know something’s going wrong.” This seems to be the general consensus of an increasing amount of mainstream media outlets.
The bribe allegedly occurred after Allred and her daughter, fellow attorney Lisa Bloom, filed lawsuits on behalf of two women who claimed that David sexually harassed them while they were employees of his media empire. Former sales executives Chasity Jones and Elizabeth Taylor claimed in Los Angeles Superior Court that the Beverly Hills heir to a Coca-Cola bottling fortune sexually harassed them when they worked for his hologram and television production companies. Sources close to FilmOn reveal that Allred and Blooms “star” witnesses have all failed to corroborate anything remotely close to sexual harassment and that Elizabeth Taylor’s accusations are flatly denied by other witness depositions.
The newest person to come forward and sue is Karl Zipel, alleging he was discriminated against for being gay despite having worked at FilmOn successfully for five years, openly gay, and having sent texts to the company’s CEO bragging about having 4-way gay sex in public toilets. Zipel was fired with cause for failure to execute his duties.
