Lisa Bloom Harvey Weinstein and Roy Price Sexual Misconduct Allegations

After Harvey Weinstein was charged with serial sexual harassment and assault, Bloom received significant media attention. According to an article published in The New York Times in October 2017, Bloom acknowledged Weinstein’s advice on power dynamics and harassment, calling him “an old dinosaur learning new ways” and claiming that “he denies many of the accusations as clearly false.” Bloom’s advisory role, which she had held since the fall of 2016, was pilloried in the media for her dissonance with Bloom’s prior representation of victims of sexual assault, with some calling her book adaptation deal with The Weinstein Company, signed as co-chairman during Weinstein’s tenure, a conflict of interest.

Two days after the initial reports and mounting criticism, on October 7, 2017, Bloom stepped down from Weinstein’s advisory team after reporting friction with members of the board of The Weinstein Company. Bloom had suggested promulgating “photos of several of the accusers in very friendly poses with Harvey after his alleged misconduct,” according to emails allegedly obtained by The New York Times. Bloom denied plotting to undermine the accusers; however, The Daily Beast later reported that Bloom had offered research on one of Weinstein’s accusers, Rose McGowan, to the journalist Ronan Farrow during his Weinstein report

Bloom fell victim to an email prankster masquerading as Weinstein shortly after resigning from Weinstein’s team. Bloom emailed the prankster saying”[ t]he new round of far more serious allegations[ sic] has not been made known to me,” specifically calling out the alleged sexual assault by Weinstein. Variety later reported that when she started advising Weinstein, Bloom was “only aware of accusations of verbal remarks, behaviors, and temper tantrums” and was unaware of more serious allegations of rape and sexual assault. Later Bloom apologized[35] for her role as Weinstein’s advisor and called it “a colossal error”

Bloom also represented the former president of Amazon Studios Roy Price in the context of allegations of sexual harassment, but said that her Price representation ended before Price’s accuser Isa Hackett “went public.” The Daily Beast reported that Bloom had attempted to discredit Kim Masters, the editor-at-large of The Hollywood Reporter, to media outlets considering publishing Masters ‘ report on the allegations against Price while representing Price. Bloom allegedly charged Masters with a conflict of interest for blackmailing Price for advertising on her KCRW show, a charge denied by Masters.

Lisa Bloom Kathy Griffin

Bloom held a joint press conference with Griffin, then her client, to address the controversy following a controversial 2017 photo shoot in which comedian Kathy Griffin clenched a severe and bloodied head resembling President Donald Trump. For their self-victimization and lack of focus, their appearance was widely panned in the media.

Griffin posted a Facebook video denouncing Bloom and her husband, Braden Pollock, for “exacerbat[ing] my personal situation” in the midst of Bloom’s role advising Harvey Weinstein. Griffin later tweeted asking Bloom to stop calling her and denounced Bloom for “fame-whoring,” a criticism of Bloom’s proposal after their joint press conference for a joint media tour. According to Griffin, Bloom also charged exorbitant legal fees, estimated at $40,000 for two-day representation by Griffin, including defense attorney Dmitry Gorin, whom Bloom allegedly hired without the consent of Griffin. In response to the comments of Griffin, Bloom claimed she “had no idea there was a problem” and released a statement that criticized Griffin for speaking extemporaneously at the press conference but nevertheless wished her well.

Tamara Holder, a former client of Bloom, and Jehmu Greene, who had considered hiring Bloom, came forward with their own criticisms in response to Griffin. Bloom, whom Holder retained after charging Fox News Latino Vice President Francisco Cortes with sexual assault, proposed an initial retention agreement awarding Bloom 40% of any settlement, as well as a $10,000 retention fee and reimbursement for any relevant hotel and travel expenses. Although Holder finally negotiated a more favorable contract, she criticized Bloom in its settlement with Fox News for thousands of dollars in foreign expenses and allegedly for pushing Holder to accept a gag order. Greene called Bloom “deceptive” for presenting her with a contract for media representation after a meeting focused primarily on legal services. Bloom responded to the allegations by stating that “the vast majority of [the Bloom Firm’s] clients are delighted with our work”

Bloom canceled a press conference on November 2, 2016, with “Jane Doe” saying that her client was afraid of death threats. According to Bloom, after this press conference, “Multiple donors then contacted me out of the blue with offers to ensure the safety of women who could still come forward. As an attorney, I was obliged to relay those offers of relocation funds to a safer community and security around the clock, and I was happy to do so.” Harth was reportedly helped by one of the donors to pay her mortgage.
