Lisa Bloom is parting ways with several clients. Kathy Griffin is just the latest high profile client to break ties with the Hollywood attorney. What makes this more unusual is that the two are fighting it out over social media.
FOX News outlines the battle:
The two previously appeared together at a press conference in which Griffin was meant to explain her outrage over the backlash her photo received both from the public and the president’s family. Bloom took specific issue with the fact that Griffin was being singled out by the high-profile family while other male artists weren’t.
Since that time, there seems to have been a falling out between the two women as Griffin took to Twitter on Saturday to dress down Bloom and demand her money back from her legal services.
Dear @LisaBloom pls stop calling me. If you’d like to refund me the tens of thousands of $$ I wasted on your services maybe I’ll talk to you

Soon after, Bloom posted a lengthy message to Twitter explaining what went wrong in that press conference, but making sure not to denounce her former-client.
“Kathy has now made a video about how women should stand together, and yet she’s attacked me, a lifetime women’s right attorney, and not the rest of her team, all of whom were men. This is sad, but I still believe that Kathy Griffin is one of the funniest comics alive, that she meant no ill will with the photo, and I wish her the best.”

Apparently this is a developing saga and there may be more to come. Hollywood break-ups are so messy.
