John Travolta sex assault lawyers go to war with each other

The two men's former attorney Okorie Okorocha has filed a lawsuit against their current legal rep Gloria Allred, claiming she approached one of his clients and urged him to fire the lawyer.

Allred has released a statement, announcing she plans to file a counterclaim against Okorocha for defamation, insisting the two men, John Doe #1 and John Doe #2, contacted her "seeking representation", adding, "We have the evidence to prove it."

She states, "Mr. Okorocha's lawsuit will be dismissed, and we will ultimately recover a judgment against him."

Okorocha initially filed the lawsuits against Travolta on behalf of the two masseurs.

He dropped John Doe #1 after he mixed up his dates and alleged Travolta had assaulted him at a Los Angeles spa when the movie star was actually in New York on business.

Okorocha learned his second client had withdrawn his lawsuit and recruited Allred as his representative in a phone call last week (ends19 May12).
