Okorie Okorocha, who rather than stepping quietly out of the media spotlight on Thursday instead chose to accuse his former clients’ new counsel of poaching his case, describing her behavior to CNN as “unethical and against state bar rules.” Allred was not pleased, telling RumorFix she would see Okorocha in court if he didn’t retract his “false statements.”
Such bravado, however, has seemed in character for Okorocha, a lawyer who was dead set on delivering his clients anonymity as well as a day a day in court.
“I’m the real deal. [Singer] stepped into the ring with a gorilla. I am relentless,” Okorocha boasted last week while opposing counsel threatened to sue him for malicious prosecution and evidence piled up contradicting his first client’s allegations.
“Bring it on,” he said, only to find himself apologizing to Singer days later when it became clear he’d blown a key date in his May 4 filing. A report that John Doe No. 2 would settle for $250,000 was inaccurate, he said, the result of his own “jibber-jabbering” with a friend from church who coincidentally works at Radar Online.
With Allred at now the helm “the case is gonna go away quietly,” Okorocha said Thursday in an interview posted on TMZ. He is predicting an “under-the-table payment.”
