Lisa Bloom

"The fact that Lisa Bloom has defended Weinstein and calling some of the women liars confirms what we’ve always suspected about her…"


Celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom is reeling from public backlash after a New York Times report suggested she planned to defend serial predator Harvey Weinstein by discrediting his victims.

Bloom hurriedly dropped the movie mogul as her client on Sunday, after the New York Times detailed her plans to discredit Weinstein's accusers.

In emails obtained by The Times, Bloom, 56, and Weinstein, 65, reportedly discussed getting photos of his accusers in "very friendly poses" with him.

The revelation that Ms. Bloom repped Weinstein for over a year came as a surprise to feminists and domestic abuse victims who saw her as an ally.

The NY Times article painted her as a money-hungry opportunist who couldn't care less about abuse victims.

Bloom hurriedly dropped Weinstein on Saturday, hours after the damaging Times report about her was published.

“I have resigned as an advisor to Harvey Weinstein,” Bloom tweeted on Saturday morning. “My understanding is that Mr. Weinstein and his board are moving toward an agreement.”

In The Times' article, Bloom was reportedly upset with two of the all-male board members of The Weinstein Company.

After the board convened an emergency meeting to discuss Weinstein's fate on Thursday, Bloom sent emails to board members detailing her plan to attack the New York Times' article that exposed Weinstein as a sexual predator.

Apparently aware that the board decided to fire Mr. Weinstein, she made a last ditch effort to save his job by suggesting a plan that involved “more and different reporting,” including “photos of several of the accusers in very friendly poses with Harvey after his alleged misconduct.”

But board member Lance Maerov wrote an email scolding Bloom for “fanning the flames and compounding the problem”.

Maerov asked Bloom to "step away" from The Weinstein Company, because she tarnished her credibility when she optioned a book deal with Weinstein for a TV series.

“You have a commercial relationship with TWC via a TV deal so how can you possibly provide impartial advice to Harvey or address this group with any credibility?” Mr. Maerov asked Bloom in the email.

In a separate email, Maerov slammed Bloom's plan to publish "friendly" pictures of Weinstein posing with his victims, because “publishing pictures of victims in friendly poses with Harvey will backfire as it suggests they are exculpatory or negate any harm done to them through alleged actions.”

“It is my opinion, that u are giving your client poor counsel,” Maerov added. “Perhaps, Harvey as he stated in the NY Times, to the world, should get professional help for a problem that really exists".

Defending herself against the accusations in the Times article on Saturday, Bloom said that she personally “did not release photos of accusers” to the press. She denied that her work with Mr. Weinstein created a conflict of interest.

Also criticizing Bloom's judgment was her own mother, celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, who said, "I do not represent individuals accused of sex harassment."

Allred added: “While I would not represent Mr. Weinstein, I would consider representing anyone who accused Mr. Weinstein of sexual harassment, even if it meant that my daughter was the opposing counsel.”

As the backlash against Bloom grew on Monday, she took to to do damage control and to remind critics of her record defending DV victims.

In a series of what some are calling "whiny" tweets, Bloom wrote:

"Powerful learning experience last week. I always tell my clients to ignore the hate, but now I truly get their pain… So over the hate. I have won $15 million for victims of sexual harassment, rape and race discrimination this year. From a client this week:"

She attached a scan of an email from a DV client thanking her for bending her rules so the client could get some money from a settlement.

Bloom's followers ruthlessly attacked her after she announced she was representing an unknown Instagram model (Brittany) who was allegedly beaten by her unknown rapper boyfriend, Z-Ro.

  • TheOwley

    Lisa got caught up in the Weinstein aura. She should have realized he was harvesting lawyers to block them from representing his victims later on. I'm pretty sure they teach you this strategy in law school, final semester regarding employment. Now she is basically unemployable by these women. They need to stay away from the mother too, go to reputable lawyers instead.

  • Aletha Davis

    She's a lawyer they defend child molesters, murders, Donald trump. Every American has the right to Have legal representation

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    They are blatantly calling this guy a RAPIST now. i guess she decided she wasn't about that life.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Her mother is going to be PISSED Lisa flucked up the family business

  • Justlooknout

    Her mother Gloria Allred, told her to STOP it. Find some other bottom of the barrel cases.

    Besides, attorneys aren't able to defend the cream of the crop, they gotta get paid. it's the nature of the business.

  • Justlooknout

    It kind of works that way. You win some, some you take for the team. All the big firms do it. Nature of the beast.

  • hottlanta

    Lawyers are supposed to defend their clients. We the public can't pick and choose then when you get in a bind you gonna be looking for a lawyer to defend you and the rules change. It's personal now. Betta get like OJ call a black man to help ya. A lawyer is crooked until they help you win you case then it is all good. Can't have it both ways.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Im not surprised this chick is a bloodhound when it comes to scandal. She would represent the Devil himself if he gave her a good retainer fee...

  • My Thoughts

    The point of it is that Lisa is known to represent women victims rather they were DV, SEXUALITY HARASSED ETC. By her representing the allege accuser potentially kills hey credibility and alliance with said victims and groups.

  • MookieFly

    Lawyers aint shit but they will help Kojoe beat that case for the right price. Ask Phaedra

  • Coy little wink

    Weinstein has been accused of rape...

  • Renee26

    Some of the best defense attorneys also worked for the prosecutors office and vice versa...if these people were regular Joe's nobody would be upset. I guess attention seeking in her career was not on her side.

  • Ni Ni

    When i went on my lunch break, a radio show played clips of a woman who recorded weinsten doing something to her and he was saying this is the way it goes or something like that. They said he has two cases of rape now.

  • hottlanta

    Yeah like bashing her is a come up for overworked/under paid court appointed public defenders. Folks know good and well if they got the money/get in trouble they want the best attorney money can buy. They ain't gonna say I don't want you I want me a public defender. That is why lawyer fees are high to attract a certain type of clientele.

  • hottlanta

    So we hear a tape of a woman recording Weinsten doing something to her but we also heard a tape of Dump getting ready to do something to someone bragging about what he had grabbed before, shaking Tic Tacs/laughing/ bragging at the same time and still got the job Just boggles the mind.

  • Marlika

    I hope she loses her law licenses one day. As far as Harvey l can see him eating a gun very soon. He won't be able to stand the shame nor will he haven't he courage to fight it. He's not built like that. ?????

  • ? King Kari ?????????

    Was that the tape that the Manhattan da refused to charge weinerstein? Then weinerstein gave him $10,000 for his so called campaign!

  • ? King Kari ?????????

    She’s as dirty as her mother. The mother worked on a case against cbs and she used it for her own agenda.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Just popped up on my phone that his wife is supposedly leaving him.

  • country57

    I have a feeling he has way more victims than Bill Cosby. Who in the world did he piss off? He's been doing this for decades and now all hell breaks loose.

  • nick c

    I had to retain probably 5 or 6 attorneys in my life (not all bad) this is there job if they are not representing you in court they are suppose to be giving you the best counsel possible to stay out of court. They also help draft documents to protect your assets and business interests from potential lawsuits and attachments. This was her ethical obligation as an attorney first and activist second she should have been hiding all his damn money once the shiz hit the fan.

  • Li

    When something like this happens I wonder who the H* did Harvey po to make all these women come out like this? It's like Bill Cosby. Bill must have royally po'd somebody. Harvey's indiscretions were known for decades and women were paid off....I betcha his wives knew too....but he must have done something to somebody....didn't pay them? Didn't give them the acting job? Geez.

  • Li

    She's got to protect her children and her business.

  • Li

    With all his money and power, he could have any stripper and mistress he wanted. He should have gone that route.

  • speakinmymind

    Whyyyy Quantasia gotta be 400 AND 12 pounds?!? QTNA?????

    And a vegan to boot...????

  • hottlanta

    She said it herself. I have receipts.

  • Gone Too Far

    Every time a celebrity does some mess Lisa is always right up in it. How can she defend this shit? No ma’am

  • Gone Too Far

    Because she’s literally 412 pounds lol. She just recently turned vegan apparently

  • Gone Too Far

    I was literally about to say. She defends women who are victims of these things how is she on the other side this time? Omg? What is she trying to prove

  • sunni_daze

    Gloria hoped on Twitter and Lisa hopped of Harvey team. Mom's said she would battle her own child if she defened him . Lisa got the memo

  • chris

    Defense lawyers defend all manner of criminals. No coincidence they also are the highest paid.

  • My Thoughts

    I wonder if her judgement was swayed because she has a personal relationship with the dude. Because I would think otherwise she was intelligent enough to know this was going to blow up in her face!

  • Gone Too Far

    I wonder too. He should’ve just hired Marty Singer because business should never affect your personal. She should keep it professional but I’m starting to realize Lisa Bloom’s credibility is starting to go down because of how she carries herself. It just makes her look strange, when she’s known for defending women in situations like this and this time she’s on the other side of the fence. I wouldn’t hire her as my lawyer after this.
