Hi Scientist,

How are you? I know that King Jammy Sleazebag threatened to murder you but my former partner is a "folk singer" and,
as you noted, a one hit wonder who used Phil Spector. Law enforcement (corrupt, no doubt) loves my ex-partner even
though there is credible evidence that he's a thief; obstructed justice in a sham murder trial set up (Phil Spector's); targets
innocent people; and one of the lowest forms of life on this planet. You were correct - he is a one hit wonder. He used
his fraudulent "de riguer" gun stories to further his career and when his ass was on the line - re. his criminal tax fraud and
massive tax hit - he threw me under the bus. He is an unconscionable liar, con artist, fraud, and thief. The DA allegedly
used him in Phillip's secret grand jury. And now, this fraud liar thug has perhaps pulled down my documents on scribd - that
would include his terrorist threats against Ann Diamond. She never stalked him. Perhaps Leonard Cohen could hook
up with King Jammy's. In fact, Cohen may be in this country illegally because he abandoned his green card and was, from
what I could tell, attempting to blame that on Steven Machat's father, Marty Machat.

Do you see any serious criminal issues re. Rice threatening to have me arrested over my federal tax returns? I do and so do
many others. Well, Ed Dean (Cohen's lawyer who had issues with personal service contracts being assigned to a corporation)
thought the IRS should or would come in after lawyers in this matter. I whole heartedly agree. Cohen, Kory, Rice, and others,
now appear to be emboldened. Who pulled my documents from Scribd?

To the IRS Commissioner's Staff,

It is amazing that Kory told my lawyers (who put this in writing) that they were so concerned about the IRS (re. Cohen, his
creative tax planning, disdain for ordinary income taxes, and massive tax hit) Kory didn't even want to ask the IRS for a copy of
the Traditional Holdings, LLC tax returns. Cohen and his gangsta thug lawyers have certainly become emboldened. I will
follow up with the District Attorney - in writing - re. my Major Fraud Unit complaint with respect to Cohen's criminal tax fraud
and theft totaling millions of dollars. I intend to file another complaint and will again address this issue in my next FOIA request
which will be far more specific.

Rice and Kory,

I am - yet again - asking for the information I require in order to amend my federal tax returns. I intend to fight the issues Cohen's default judgment raised with respect to my previously filed federal tax returns that were illegally altered. I intend to fight the illegal
K1s that LC Investments, LLC (owned 100% by Cohen) issued me and transmitted to both the IRS and State of Kentucky. I view
Kory/Cohen's declaration in Ray's alleged custody matter as criminal witness tampering, coercion, obstruction of justice, etc. I would like all valuations in Cohen's possession relating to the intellectual property I own - including all statements relating to the assignments (that he knows are non-revocable and this was confirmed with Greenberg after I went over to Cohen's, sat down, and discussed this - he dictated the language in the minutes re. these assignments, etc. I would also like to share this information with Steven Machat who is also a victim of theft by Leonard Cohen - as are Marty Machat, Phil Spector, and probably Bob Johnston.

I am once again advising your client to cease and desist slandering me, my family, etc. He has aligned himself with Stephen
Gianelli who is clearly a dangerously unstable individual who has targeted my family and falsely accused my sister and her husband of starting their business with Cohen's cash. My elderly parents were falsely accused. Your client is an out of control ego-maniac, pathetic liar, con artist, and thief.

I would assume that someone involved with your company or Cohen had my documents pulled down from Scribd and intend to
follow up on that. Cohen had no problems threatening Ann Diamond, falsely accusing her of stalking him, and probably encouraged
Stephen Gianelli to slander her. Ann Diamond never stalked Leonard Cohen and was a student of Joshu Sasaki Roshi.

Leonard Cohen is one hell of a buddhist In fact, you would have to go to hell to find one like him.

Again, if you want to threaten me over my federal tax returns and these requests for information I need pertaining to my federal
tax returns - including with threats involving law enforcement (who will be sued for every incident where they targeted me) -
threaten the IRS.

To the IRS Commissioner's Staff,

I can assure you that my request for information necessary to amend my federal tax returns is not "belated." My federal tax returns were illegally altered by a "default" in a matter I was not served and where the proof of service is fraudulent. I have demanded that Cohen rescind the criminal K1s he issued me from LC Investments, LLC. I have also demanded that he cease slandered me, libeling me, and defaming me - and my family. I would like to review the entire custody file with the IRS - and that includes "Robert Kory's " declaration. I view that entire matter as blackmail, coercion, obstruction of justice, bribery, etc.

I'll keep an eye on my Scribd account. Who would remove these documents. What's the issue with posting the letter Cohen threatened Ann Diamond with? He had no problem threatening her.

Michelle Rice and Robert Kory,

I have repeatedly requested information I need - in Cohen's possession - to amend my 2001-2010 federal tax returns. Judge Ken Freeman has no jurisdiction over my federal tax returns and a default judgment in a matter i wasn't served (and was unable to read until Stephen Gianelli posted them online in April 2010) cannot illegally alter my filed federal tax returns. Please refer to the irrevocable assignments re. my share of intellectual property that Cohen has now stolen - together with my so-called shares of Blue Mist Touring Company, Inc. and Traditional Holdings, Inc. - two entities Cohen snuck into the default judgment who weren't named as parties to the suit. Cohen was not the beneficial owner of either of those entities and his lies, fraud, and perjury are overwhelming. So is his concealment.

I am also demanding that Cohen immediately revoke the illegal K1s he issued me from LC Investments, LLC. Cohen states in his declaration that he is the 100% owner of that entity so there will be no further need for me to prove that the K1s issued for the years 2001, 2002, and 2003 (and transmitted to the IRS, who told me about them, and the State of Kentucky) are criminal.

Finally, I demand that Cohen CEASE AND DESIST slandering me and employing others to attack and target me, my family, friends, business associates, and others. The same is true with respect to my parents and Karen and David McCourt - who did NOT start their business with Cohen's cash. He, as always, remains a bald-faced liar and thief.

Hello Sharmapa,

How are you? I would like to ask you to do protector prayers. I've been accused of issuing a "death threat" to prosecutor Alan Jackson who may have found a sympathetic ear with "Gianelli" who has slandered you terribly. Someone deleted my posts to Scribd. I posted Ann Diamond's article for Rolling Stone; Cohen's threat letter to Ann Diamond; my revisions to the Rolling Stone article; the transcript of my conversation with Steven Machat (which is also published on my River Deep Book Blog - I asked Sonny Mehta to read through that blog); etc. The attempts to silence me continue.

Thank you.

Hi Mr. Riordan,

Revenge fantasies. Who has removed my posts from Scribd? I want to know. My blogs and email accounts have been targeted
and people clearly would still like to silence me. Well, it's not going to happen, Mr. Riordan. I think I'll give Sonny Metha another call to bring him up-to-date. I'll let him know that I've been accused of threatening "Alan Jackson" with death. What's next, Mr. Riordan? Will I be accused of putting a fatwa on Jackson? Fortunately, Sonny Metha published Rushdie's Satanic Verses and probably isn't all that worried about low level thug domestic terrorists. I would assume he's interested in a well written book. I want this accusation that I've issued a "death threat" to Alan Jackson investigated. I'm writing Phillip a letter and will address this in that letter. I'll let you know when it's mailed. One has recently been returned. I mail the returned letter to you.

Alan Jackson,

I'm gathering information from the internet re. the slander, defamation, libel, threats, etc. with respect to me, Phil Spector, and Leonard Cohen. It's amazing that someone has actually lied and said I'm a drunk, crack addict, and made a death threat online towards you. That is a bald-faced lie. I am not constantly on the run and that notion is laughable.
I don't live in a homeless shelter and haven't been homeless since 2006 actually. So, that's old news. You didn't prove Phil Spector is a murderer. I am awaiting a call back from Dr. Werner Spitz (whose office recently called me) regarding you, your threats and slander re. Phil Spector's expert witnesses - and, in particular, Dr. Spitz, and the forensic
science. I'm not a sick person but I believe you are. Marko definitely seems sick to me - as in "criminally insane."

I am advising you to have these people cease and desist. You and Pat Dixon seem to have issues with me. Fascinating - since I've never met you and have no idea who
you are. You should know better than anyone - the DA's office dragged me into Phil Spector's sham set up.

Kelley Lynch

· Kelley Lynch stole from Leonard Cohan, has a judgement of over 7 million dollars she owes him, he also has a restraining order against her. She's violating it all over the net by making false claims against him. She's a crack addict and a drunk. She has at least 5 bench orders out for her arrest. She's constantly on the run and ends up residing in homeless shelters. She is now making death threats online towards Alan Jackson who proved Phil Spector is a murderer. She's a very sick person who needs to be reported to the authorties.

Cohen doesn't have a restraining order against me. He didn't put witnesses on the stand or offer evidence. I asked the judge to make it permanent. Cohen was freaked out over Ann Diamond's draft article that spoke the truth about what happened between the two of us - he committed criminal tax fraud and I reported it. I am not a crack addict or drunk but people (connected to Cohen and the Lost Angeles District Attorney) have motive to undermine my credibility and slander me. I've asked Phil Spector's legal team to investigate the fact that I have been accused of issuing "death threats" to the man Bruce Cutler called a "little girl" - Spector prosecutor Alan Jackson. What authorities? I've reported all of this to the IRS, FBI, DOJ, and Trasury and the online cyber-terrorists have decided to play games with these agencies, lie to them, and attack my family members, etc. Quite a number of people have been forced to hire attorneys and Steven Machat (who Cohen also stole from and who used to represent him) has received similar email threats, etc., from a lunatic connected to Leonard Cohen/Robert Kory. Cohen's greed got the best of him and as someone recently wrote me his "extravaganza" with respect to me proves he is "Mafioso." Then there's his perjury in Phil Spector's matter, obstruction of justice, etc.

Leonard Cohen is a thief who has now stolen from me, Phil Spector, Steven and Marty Machat, and probably Bob Johnston. I haven't made death threats to anyone - including the thug prosecutor Alan Jackson.

Obsessed Phil Spector Blogger - Jihad Gianelli's "Disclaimer" May Serve No Purpose

I believe Jihad Gianelli is concealing the true purpose of his Blog. His last "article" posted on or around May 2, 2011 is a list of 9/11 victims. Prior to that he has a "Happy Easter" notice with no comments; an "article" about a woman who injured herself clapping with no comments; and - of course - an article on Phil Spector with 180 comments:

Honestly I don't think this appellate court wanted to take away from the DA's office their first celebrity murder conviction.

I do believe that the California Supreme court will overturn it.

What overwhelming evidence of guilt? Where? There isn't any. That was the response the AG representative gave, I believe it was to Justice Klein, in response to a question about the 5 women who testified.

According to the Linda Deutche report who has been pretty fair to Spector, Riordan will ask the Supreme Court to review on June 13. Unfortunately the sharks are circling as the civil case is coming to head in January 2012 and I would expect a 10 million plus judgement. Even if the Supreme Court were to review the case it will take years to wind its way through. The thing about the 2nd districts ruling that was so telling was how swift the opinion was rendered and how many times Riordan opposed giving the AG more time to answer. Not very smart. Hopefully they learn and be very humbled if the Supreme court agrees to hear the case.

N.J. Supreme Court says blogger not protected from revealing her sources

Published: Wednesday, June 08, 2011, 9:00 AM Updated: Wednesday, June 08, 2011, 6:12 PM

TRENTON —New Jersey’s legal protections allowing journalists to keep their sources secret do not apply to those who post to online message boards, the state Supreme Court ruled Tuesday.

The court, clarifying an area of law that has not kept up with advances on the internet, said bloggers must have some connection to "news media" to invoke New Jersey’s shield law protecting journalists from revealing their confidential sources.

"To ensure that the privilege does not apply to every self-appointed newsperson, the legislature requires that other means of disseminating news be ‘similar’ to traditional news sources to qualify for the law’s coverage," Chief Justice Stuart Rabner wrote for the 5-0 court. "We do not find that online message boards are similar to the types of news entities listed in the statute ..."

The long-awaited decision, which included arguments from media groups and the state ACLU, overturned part of an appellate court ruling that would have established stricter criteria for journalists to qualify for the protection.

"This is just a beginning to this conversation," said Bruce Rosen, a Florham Park attorney representing the New Jersey Press Association. "This conversation is going to go on for years, but it’s a good place to start."

Courts have already ruled people can be sued for comments they post on message boards, but this case addressed what protections "nontraditional" media have in an era when newspapers, magazines, television and radio are no longer the only sources of news.

The ruling was made in the case of a blogger from Washington State who posted alleged defamatory statements about a Marlboro-based software company.

In comments she posted to a message board about an online security breach, Shellee Hale claimed Too Much Media LLC’s owners had threatened her sources and failed to report the breach because they profited from the stolen email addresses. TMM, which helps online adult entertainment companies track sales, sued for defamation and Hale sought protection of shield law.

A former Microsoft employee and a private investigator, Hale argued she was preparing an article for her website,, about the infiltration of pornography on the internet when she posted her comments about TMM in 2008.

TMM argued Hale is not a journalist and fabricated the purpose of her website to seek the protection.

A Superior Court judge in Monmouth County ruled in 2009 that the protection did not apply to Hale. An appellate panel later that year upheld that decision but also set very specific criteria for journalists to qualify for the protection.

But the Supreme Court — to the delight of a group of media outlets invited into the arguments — shot down the appeals court’s criteria. It said the test is whether there is a connection to news media, if the purpose of the report is to gather or disseminate news and if the information was obtained during professional newsgathering activities.

In her case, Hale insisted Pornafia was a legitimate medium. But the court noted she never launched the news magazine portion of the website. The court also noted her alleged defamatory statements appeared exclusively on the message board, which the court said was one step removed from the electronic equivalent of a letter to the editor in a newspaper.

TMM attorney Joel Kreizman of Ocean Township welcomed the decision because he said the lawsuit can finally proceed.

"We’ve been stuck on this issue for over two years. This case normally would have gone to trial by now. We’re almost basically starting from scratch," he said.

Hale’s attorney, Jeffrey Pollock of Princeton, said he will ask the Supreme Court to reconsider its ruling that the decision applies retroactively to his client.

He said the decision narrows the scope of people who qualify for the protection to keep sources confidential, a sentiment echoed by the Heartland Institute, a Chicago-based policy research group.

"Putting aside the wisdom of shield laws, they should not exist to protect only certain classes of Americans a court defines as ‘journalists.’ Freedom of the press is not truly free if the definition of ‘press’ is left up to the whim of a judge," said Jim Lakely, co-director of the institute’s Center on the Digital Economy.

Gianelli - Cohen, Jackson, et al's Henchman - Cohen Cancelled The Concert In Cambodia With Some Lame Excuse

June 18, 2010

Dear Ms. Lynch:

On June 17, 2010, you posted on your blog a letter to the Cambodian Red Cross protesting what you believed to be entertainer Leonard Cohen’s intention to give a charity concert there to benefit the Cambodian people on the BOGUS grounds that (according to you, without any evidence, and despite the denial of the alleged “victim”) Cohen allegedly molested his daughter in Greece in 1979.
Actually, if Cohen wants to press this issue I will absolutely subpoena Freda Gutman. Ann Diamond has already confirmed that Freda Gutman advised her that Lorca Cohen publicly informed her classmates at Concordia that her father molested her.

You posted your letter under a post heading additionallyfalsely implying that Cohen, who has a lifetime history of charitable giving, is simply giving the benefit to obtain a tax deduction.
Well, since I did work as Cohen’s personal manager for approximately 17 years I do happen to know this lying con artist fraud and thief. His obsession with stock deals, avoidance of ordinary income tax, avoidance of gift tax, and his deranged insistence that his donation of his body of work to the University of Toronto in exchange for a U.S. tax credit does lead me to wonder if his charitable concert has a tax deduction attached to it. Cohen is one of the greediest men I’ve ever met on this earth. Furthermore, one charitable gesture every few years is really not particularly impressive.

In response we wrote to the same Red Cross official you did, pointing out that it has been proven in a court of law that you were fired as Cohen’s manager in 2004 for embezzling millions from him, that Cohen has a $7.3 million 2006 judgment against you related to your theft, that you have a history of psychiatric hospitalizations, that you have restraining orders against you and in Cohen’s favor in California and Colorado, and that you have six (6) outstanding bench warrants for your arrest issued by the Los Angeles courts.
It would be hard for Gianelli to “point out” anything about me and Cohen since he didn’t know me or Cohen when I refused to meet with Cohen and Westin to unravel their deranged tax planning, corporate structures, etc. Cohen’s the THIEF and the fraud default judgment and wrongful conversion of my property to him is evidence of that. It is also evidence of his attempts to cover up and conceal his criminal tax fraud. I don’t have a history of psychiatric problems and the doctors that I saw were clear about that. Law enforcement appears to have a vested interest in the outcome of Cohen’s criminal tax fraud matter and appears to have wanted the opportunity to interrogate me in a controlled environment about Phil Spector en route to Killer King. Perhaps that’s where Cohen and law enforcement had their meeting of minds. See evidence that Cohen, Lindsey, Kory, and Superfon conspired to have me falsely arrested; Robert Kory’s declaration in my minor son’s custody matter that is evidence of criminal witness tampering on the part of Cohen and Kory; and the evidence Daniel Scheid wrote me about – he told me he has evidence that Cohen and Kory engaged in criminal witness tampering and also has evidence against Lindsey and Superfon.
Three of the bench warrants are clearly evidence of fraud at LA Superior Court. One relates to the UD matter that I was unaware of. I wasn’t served that lawsuit either. Therefore, the judges in four matters before LA Superior Court don’t have jurisdiction which is really quite shocking but seems to be par for the course. I intend to litigate the three garbage, unlawful, and unconstitutional misdemeanor citations with Santa Monica and SMPD. City Attorney Marsha Moutrie should understand that and she should have been able to read the 9th Circuit Court’s decision but Santa Monica thinks it’s above the law and their police department absolutely targeted me and criminally harasses people. They also advised me that they were playing a game and understood that I knew Phil Spector.

We also wrote directly to you in blunt terms pointing out that charity donated services are not tax deductible so this could not have been the entertainer’s motive, as well as the fact that Cohen has a long history of charitable giving.
Cohen’s charitable donation of stock to Mt. Baldy was audited by the IRS and should be revisited by the IRS since his accountant, Ken Cleveland, thought it was a miracle that it flew with the IRS. The IRS really was beginning to audit quite a lot of Cohen’s deranged tax planning, stock deals, and corporate entities. Since K1s Cohen personally received in the amounts of $1 million and $7 million from Sony. They miraculously transformed into $0 1099s. Only Cohen benefitted from that activity. Cohen seems to have a long history of criminal tax fraud and tax evasion in the U.S. There’s apparently no good news in Canada which explains why Canada’s national treasure can’t live in Canada. The IRS, according to Cohen, doesn’t ask where you paid taxes the prior year while Canada Revenue does.

The bottom line is this: Setting aside the morally reprehensible nature of your attempt to derail a benefit concert for needy, third world people based on false, malicious and untrue allegations of pedophilia—and that you have made those very same preposterous, false and untrue allegations against this blog—once you take a controversial stand regarding a public figure and post it on the internet you are quite literally inviting public comment and controversy. In other words, you then become fair game for criticism.
I have been clear – any adult male stranger who attempts to lure a minor into privately communicating with him should be viewed as a potential sexual predator. To say otherwise is preposterous. Malicious lies and slander is NOT criticism.

In subsequent posts on your blog you repeat the false allegation that we are working for Leonard Cohen (we are not now, nor have we ever been so affiliated) as well as the reckless and maliciously motivated FALSE AND MANUFACTURED accusation that Cohen is a pedophile.
I didn’t manufacture Freda Gutman’s remarks to Ann Diamond about Lorca Cohen’s public declaration at Concordia that her father molested her. I also didn’t manufacture Cohen’s comments to me that he had sex with his 15-year old nanny and asked me to contact Van Penick about the statutes of limitations with respect to that in Canada. There apparently aren’t any statutes of limitations.

We again remind you that you have also falsely accused this blog and its editor of serious crimes, transparently to get even with us for banning you from Blogonaut Law Blog and also to retaliate against our constitutionally privileged communications about your controversial public statements regarding public figures Phil Spector, Leonard Coehn, Alan Jackson, and others, and that those false allegations have included the undersigned allegedly being a member of a notorious pedophile organization—again with zero evidence to back the allegation up; Just your malicious desire to damage someone’s reputation by stating the worst accusation possible in our culture.
Apparently Gianelli (who is NOT a “blog”) doesn’t think criminal witness tampering, criminal harassment, intimidation tactics, threats, blackmail/extortion, cyber-bullying, malicious lies and slander, etc. are serious crimes. Gianelli also doesn’t view lying to the FBI as a serious crime. I haven’t made any controversial public statements regarding Phil Spector. I have said that I had dinner with Phil Spector after the Clarkson incident at his house. At that time, Phil Spector advised me that Clarkson was dancing around in his foyer, waving a gun, and shot herself. That’s precisely what five major forensic experts concluded. Leoanrd Cohen and Alan Jackson’s actions are most definitely controversial. In fact, controversy seems to be the name of their game. They have similar tactics – malicious lies, slander, targeting innocent people, character assassination, bullying people, lying, attempting to intimidate people, etc. Any adult male stranger who attempts to lure a minor into privately communicating with him (via the internet and by email) should be viewed as a potential sexual predator. Many people have advised me that they view Gianelli as a dangerously unstable lunatic and feel he is sadistically obsessed with me.

In other words you have a years-long demonstrated pattern of reaching into thin air to trash those that displease you with the made-up accusations you believe will cause the targets of your anger and displeasure the maximum pain and reputation damage.
Cohen didn’t “displease” me. He committed criminal tax fraud and I reported that to the IRS and provided them with evidence. I also reported it to the State of Kentucky, California State Franchise Tax Board, and the District Attorney’s aptly named Major Fraud Unit. Cohen is a lying con artist fraud and thief who maliciously slandered me, targeted my family, and stole from me. He is a maniac.

Of course, it is also quite ironic that you—who has spent the last 5 years and the last 14 months, respectively, serially accusing Leonard Cohen and this blog of criminality—have not only an extensive arrest record as well as six (6) outstanding WARRANTS FOR YOUR ARREST issued by different Los Angeles superior Court judges in six different matters.
Hardly an “extensive arrest record” but I have asked the IRS, FBI, DOJ, and Treasury to investigate all activity with respect to me and law enforcement. I have also asked the IRS, FBI, DOJ, and Treasury to investigate Cohen’s lawsuit against me and the custody matter – as well as Greenberg’s companion lawsuit in Colorado. Very clever of Cohen to forget to name Greenberg to his fraud lawsuit against me while sneaking in two companies not named in his lawsuit (and clearly not under Freeman’s jurisdiction) into what I believe is a highly illegal default judgment and evidence of criminal conduct. Cohen has no qualms, apparently, engaging in criminal conduct – see illegal and criminal K1s that were transmitted to the IRS and State of Kentucky. The man lies as easily as he breathes. He must really impress these judges who appear to bend over backwards for lying celebrity frauds.

You, and the persons whom you attempt to sway with your false allegations, would do well to keep in mind that neither Leonard Cohen, nor the undersigned, nor anyone else that you have accused (and there have been many) have ever been prosecuted for any crime, and that it is you—and only you—who has suffered multiple civil judgments, restraining orders, psychiatric hospitalizations, arrests, has embezzled millions, and also has warrants out for her arrest.
Who are the persons I’m attempting to sway? The IRS, FBI, DOJ, Treasury, and Dennis Riordan? Should they keep in mind that Cohen hasn’t been prosecuted for a crime. Perhaps the IRS is aware of this and perhaps they sent agents from the Treasury to meet with me because they have a probable prosecution of Leonard Cohen pending. Perhaps that’s why I’ve heard from the FBI on more than one occasion. I’ve asked the IRS, FBI, DOJ, and Treasury to investigate the hospitalizations – including the one where the IRS shows up in the medical records which is precisely why I called Agent Bill Betzer from the nurse’s station. This was discussed with the Treasury agents – as was the custody matter which clearly relates to Cohen’s criminal tax fraud matter and Phil Spector’s matter. I am assuming that the DA had the power and motive to have me dragged to Killer King but have asked the IRS, FBI, DOJ, and Treasury to investigate that.
You are the one wanted by Los Angeles Police on six bench warrants; not Cohen and not this blog; and you are the one who has been proven to have embezzled millions of dollars; who has a motive to lie and a demonstrated propensity to lie; who has been frequently arrested; and who has a history of involuntary psychiatric hospitalizations.
Really? I’m wanted by LAPD? Do they now have a wanted poster out? A default judgment PROVES nothing except for the fact that Cohen used that to commit THEFT, wrongful conversion, fraud, etc. I have no propensity to lie. Gianelli, however, clearly has MOTIVE and that should absolutely be investigated together with what I view as his engagement in extremely serious criminal conduct.

Add to that resume yesterday's demonstrated willingness to deprive an entire country of needy people charity aid to serve your own sick agenda of getting revenge against your crime victim.
Give me a break. Leonard Cohen is a common criminal.
Your arrest and (hopefully) subsequent psychiatric treatment could not come soon enough for us.
What arrest (hopefully)? LAPD knows how to contact me. Cohen has a history of very serious psychiatric problems. He has a history of drug addiction and abuse – as well as problems with alcohol. He is a calculated fraud and liar. He has a history of THEFT with respect to his advisers. He is a dangerously unstable fraud. When people see through this lying thug criminal he targets them … that includes Phil Spector. Cohen’s sick agenda with respect to Phil Spector SHOCKS the conscience. I believe he waited in ambush after Phil Spector refused to finish his album or work with him. Cohen was humiliated (according to him) that he had to telegraph Phil Spector in an attempt to have him finish the album. Phil Spector found working with Cohen miserable. I know for a fact that working with Cohen is a miserable experience. He’s a control freak, lying con artist, and one of the greediest men I’ve ever met in my life. He uses his money to buy people’s silence and friendship. The man’s PATHETIC. He hires high paid liars to destroy innocent people’s lives and targets children. One must wonder why the detectives I met at Cohen’s house think it’s acceptable that his good rock ‘n roll comments ended up as testimony in the Phil Spector matter. They seemed professional to me. Cohen apparently thought using the Phil Spector matter would help him save his proverbial ass and cover up his criminal tax fraud, etc. The man has a criminal mind. He has no remorse. He is obsessed with himself. He’s a revolting excuse for a man.

Very truly yours,

LAPD, your sons, Michelle..etc. can see you.
Can LAPD see me and my sons? They should be focused on Cohen, Kory, Rice, and the cyber-terrorists and bullies who have decided to engage in an organized campaign of criminal harassment, witness tampering, threats, intimidation tactics, etc.

Here is Robert Kory’s mass email reply:
First please accept my personal apologies for my failure to foresee the disasters that led to cancellation of the Cambodian concert. Second, I am planning to make a statement on the forum, but I am waiting to sort out all the damage.
In the interim, here is the simple explanation. The local promoter is inexperienced, and failed to account properly for the cost in presenting the concert in such a remote location. The technical hallmark of a Leonard Cohen concert on this tour is its sound; we do not compromise the standards, and we have a very detailed technical rider that we send to every promoter prior to signing a contract as to the technical requirements. Many less advanced countries do not have the equipment which must be shipped in by freight. Even in the famous Israel concert last year, we had to ship in truckloads of equipment from Germany. In the case of Phnom Penh, we verified, through an independent European tour manager living in Thailand, that the required equipment existed in SE Asia and could be shipped in. Over the course of the last few months, I relied on AEGLive in London to monitor progress along with our our crew. AEGLive is responsible for all promotion contracts and for verifying the financial integrity of all local promoters. About four weeks ago, I became concerned that our crew was not getting answers from the local promoter about equipment arrivals, load in schedules, etc, Ticket sales were not great, but were adequate. When I finally pressed the issue on equipment, however, it became clear that the local promoter had not anticipated either the full cost of renting equipment and not any cost of freight. Equipment production costs alone rose to over $500,000. That cost is not feasible for a 2,000 person concert, The venue only holds 3,500. In addition to the equipment production costs, you have to add air charter, security, hotels, etc for 40 people. Total show costs would reach over $800,000. In short the concert would have been a financial disaster even if every ticket were sold; there would not only be no money for charity, but the local promoter would be bankrupt and we would no doubt have incurred great travel and hotel expense for which we would not be reimbursed.
What took so long for me to discover these matters? The local promoter was less than forthcoming, and AEGLive became so emotionally committed to seeing the historic concert happen that they failed in their oversight duties. This is a very rare error of judgment. I was the final line of defense in unearthing the facts, and when I smelled a problem, I pushed until I got answers, as I am not just a manager, but a lawyer. So my due diligence efforts included personally calling the local promoter every hour for several days while I was in New Zealand and sending increasingly forceful and compelling emails demanding the truth whatever the truth might be. In AEG’s defense, the local promoter stopped returning AEG’s calls, probably as panic set in as the local promoter realized that the concert meeting our technical standards was not financially feasible.
The success of our tour over the past two and one-half years may lead some fans to believe that the whole enterprise is or has been easy to manage and coordinate. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Managing and promoting a tour of this magnitude and quality is extraordinarily difficult because we absolutely never compromise quality. Some artists would say, “go ahead, rent the cheap local equipment, too bad if the audience can’t hear, they can’t hear in most concerts anyway.” That approach is anathema to us. Leonard has given me the honor and the privilege to manage a tour of unprecedented quality. Between ourselves, we call it “the no compromise tour.” That has been our premise from day one, and I take some satisfaction that the whole crew has adopted a standard of excellence. That means we turn down many offers. In retrospect, we should have declined the Phnom Penh offer.
I deeply regret the inconvenience our “no compromise” attitude has had on your plans. I can only console myself with the knowledge that I would have been even more horrified to walk the stadium and hear muddled sound that made it impossible to hear the music and lyrics.
We remain committed to playing Asia; I have explored many avenues; our technical rider is a deterrent to many Asian promoters who know their business; nevertheless, Leonard plans to tour next year after the release of his new record. I will continue to try to organize a tour in Asia.
Please let us know if there is any way we can assist you in seeing one of the remaining concerts in Australia or North America. Tickets will be our gift.
By the way, we are making a donation to charity in Cambodia from revenues earned in Australia because we told the Cambodian public that a charitable donation would be made. That donation will come directly from my pocket and from Leonard’s.
Kind regards,

Leonard Cohen's Retaliatory Lawsuit That I Was Not Served

TAKE AN ICONIC ARTIST, mix in [a fabricated tale of] missing millions, hints of tantric sex, a [retaliatory] lawsuit replete with other salacious details, and a ruptured relationship with a long-time, trusted associate, and you've got the makings of a Hollywood blockbuster. Except in the case of Leonard Cohen, it's a true tale [of pure fiction, criminal tax fraud, retaliation, perjury, revenge fantasies, etc.] , with the bizarre twist of a Tibetan Buddhist suing a Zen Buddhist, Cohen. For the 70-year-old poet, singer and songwriter, it's a nasty, rapidly escalating legal battle that on the one hand accuses him of conspiracy and extortion, and on the other has him accusing both his highly trusted personal manager and long-time financial adviser - the Tibetan Buddhist - of gross mismanagement of his financial affairs. The case exposes not only private details of Cohen's finances, but also a dramatic tale of betrayal.

The conflict, which Cohen and others have tried to keep out of public view [and no doubt under the radar of the IRS], has left him virtually broke [bald faced lie] - he's had to take out a mortgage on his house to pay legal costs [Leonard Cohen received a $1 million advance on "Dear Heather" in the fall of 2004 and put a halt to a multi-million dollar deal he demanded so this allegation is laughable]- and facing a multi-million-dollar tax bill [Cohen's self-proclaimed motive]. But the artist, who is soon to release a new album with his collaborator - and current girlfriend - Anjani Thomas, is today remarkably calm [it certainly doesn't appear that way - given the lengths he has gone to destroy my life, target my family, retaliate against me, steal from me, silence me, etc.] about the potentially embarrassing conflict. Still, when he discovered last fall that his retirement funds [Cohen discovered that I intended to report his tax fraud to the IRS; received an obscene letter from his tax lawyer re. the IRS, received a tax notice from the IRS re. his handiwork, changed accountants, and ultimately hired lawyers] , which he had thought amounted to more than $5 million (all figures U.S.) - Cohen has been issued an $8 million 1099 for the assets he wasted which include his loans that his advisers told me were dangerous to his so-called retirement structure ... all investment monies he invested with Neal Greenberg were lost and the SEC brought charges against his investment adviser ... , had been reduced to $150,000, he wasn't so sanguine. "I was devastated," Cohen says. "You know, God gave me a strong inner core, so I wasn't shattered. But I was deeply concerned."

So far, only one formal court filing involving Cohen has been made. Cohen, however, did not name Neal Greenberg in his retaliatory lawsuit against me which is one hell of an oversight leaving me to believe his and Greenberg's lawsuits were planned. In June, Boulder, Colo.-based Neal Greenberg, Cohen's investment adviser of almost a decade, launched a hyperbole-laden claim in Colorado against Cohen, who lives in both Los Angeles and Montreal. The suit accuses Kelley Lynch, who was Cohen's manager and is also named in the suit, of siphoning money from the songwriter. Actually, it doesn't "name" me. The extent of my involvement had to do with the interpleaded funds in the amount of $150,000. I called the judge, advised him that Cohen committed serious criminal tax fraud, and told him to send Cohen - the thief - the money. It also accuses Cohen and his lawyer Robert Kory of conspiracy, extortion and defamation. It alleges the two, in an attempt to recover at least some of Cohen's lost money, threatened to besmirch Greenberg's reputation and concocted a plan to force Greenberg to give Cohen millions of dollars. It would be humanly impossible to besmirch Neal Greenberg's reputation unless you think being viewed as a criminal is a reputation that needs to be protected.

The suit paints an almost preposterous picture of Cohen as an artist who led a lavish celebrity lifestyle and then turned bitter and vindictive when he discovered the money had run out. Cohen discovered no such thing. I suppose that's why he begged me to hand over the corporate books and records; meet with him and his tax lawyer to unravel their handiwork; and offered me 50% community property, etc. For example, the suit quotes Lynch describing how Cohen demanded she discuss business matters while he soaked in a bubble bath, and how later he was somehow involved in calling a SWAT team to her home, where she was handcuffed and forcibly taken to a psychiatric ward while in her bathing suit.

None of the allegations have been proven in court [Cohen's never will be since nearly every word in his retaliatory suit is fraud, perjury, and a provable lie]. Cohen is expected to file a countersuit this week - but never did supporting my theory that his and Greenberg's lawsuits were coordinated. More lawsuits are likely to join the fray. And Lynch, who has sent turgid, raw and wrathful emails hither and yon, is threatening to sue just about everyone. I absolutely intend to sue Cohen for theft, wrongful conversion of my federal tax returns, etc. It's not a "threat."

The conflict was triggered last fall when Cohen was tipped off by an insider [no such "insider" existed - that's Cohen's fictional account] that a lot of money was missing from his accounts. All that remained of his retirement savings was the $150,000, funds that today he can't get [his high-priced lying whores were able to get the money for him] at as a result of the tangled legal web he finds himself in. Greenberg's suit portrays the soulful songwriter as an artist who paid little attention to his financial affairs [the behind-the-scenes micro-manager was obsessed with every detail of his financial affairs] and so was easily duped by a conniving personal manager. Cohen says he tried quietly, and confidentially, to find out from his various managers where the money had gone [Actually, Cohen offered me anything I wanted and pleaded with me to privately meet with him and his tax lawyer ... only when I refused and my so-called lawyers sent his lawyer a letter requesting information did Cohen come up with the fictional account of my "over-payments." In his bogus lawsuit, he attempts to steal back commissions I earned and my share of intellectual property that has nothing to do with my commissions as his personal manager]. Cohen calls the case "a tragedy," suggesting he was exploited by trusted advisers [how does he explain his perjury/obstruction of justice in Phil Spector's matter - is he a victim there also?] . He uses words like "greed, concealment, and reckless disregard,"- he should know ... these words describe Cohen and his actions to a "T" - and says firmly he did nothing wrong. What would one expect a bald-faced liar and thief to say? Does someone expect a confession from another Hollywood fraud? "I can assure you, within reason, I took every precaution except to question the fidelity of my closest associates." Cohen over-estimated my "fidelity." It doesn't extend to assisting him in covering up his criminal conduct.

Until Cohen fired her last fall, Kelley Lynch - Cohen never fired me; it was never discussed; but since he continues to lie about this, wrongful termination should be addressed - he also owes me millions in commissions for work I did ... a truly "enlightened" thief and fraud - had been his personal manager for almost 17 years. Back in 1988, she'd been working as an assistant to his then-manager, who died that year. Because she was knowledgeable about Cohen's business affairs and recording contracts, he had her take over. As of April 1988 I was Cohen's personal manager. Over the years, the two developed a personal and professional relationship. Fifteen years ago, they had a brief affair. "It was a casual sexual arrangement. Cohen and I never had a brief aware, were not lovers, and did NOT enjoy anything mutually. He is delusional if he believes this. He never spent the night because it never happened. It was mutually enjoyed and terminated," he says. "I never spent the night." The end of the affair didn't affect their bond. There was no affair so it would be impossible to end one. "We were very, very close friends," Cohen says today. "I liked her immensely. Our families were close - she was helpful when I was raising my daughter; I employed her father." He even named her in his living will, giving her the power to decide, in certain circumstances, if he would live or die. How dramatic. Anjani Thomas wanted that role and I absolutely wanted her to step into that role - which happened in the fall of 2004. He handed her vast powers of attorney. He trusted her implicitly. And he believed the relationship was mutual. "She wrote dozens of emails to me, thanking me for my help. It's all about the ego-maniac, Leonard Cohen. We used to correspond regularly, relentlessly." That's correct. I gave the IRS Commissioner's Staff and Phil Spector the passwords to my email accounts so they could read through all emails (including those with Cohen's advisers) to make an independent determination about what actually occurred. He says that in 2004, while he was recording his most recent album, Dear Heather, with a small team at his home-recording studio, Lynch would come by almost daily. "People were very tight. Kelley was taking care of business, I was producing the album. It was all taking place in this little duplex and the garage that was converted into a studio. Kelley would come over, and I would generally prepare lunch for everyone." I rarely stayed for lunch - particularly after hearing him and Thomas bad-mouthing Sharon Robinson and Leanne Ungar for staying for lunch although they were invited. I did not want to be anywhere near this maniac.

The cosy arrangement was shattered one day last October when a young man, the boyfriend of a casual employee of Lynch, spoke to Cohen's daughter, Lorca, who owns an art deco furniture store and who lives downstairs from her father in the L.A. duplex he owns. "Your father really ought to look into his accounts, because he might be surprised at what he finds," he said. Lorca told him that her father trusted everyone involved and that besides, "he's about to retire, anyway." As Cohen senior tells the story, the young man replied, "He won't be able to retire." If Lorca Cohen actually said this she is a bald-faced liar who will cover for her father. In any event, this never happened. I didn't have any casual employees although Betsy Superfon advised me that a young woman by the name of Julie Isenberg (who worked for me for approximately two weeks and could hardly write an order for my card company) was jealous of me and may have involved herself in Cohen's tax fraud. She then assaulted Superfon's maid, stole Superfon's jewelry and dog, and may now be in Vegas stripping and doing drugs. She clearly could not read the corporate books records; did not prepare a forensic accounting; couldn't read financial statements if here life depended on it; etc. Utterly absurd fictional story that sounds like pure Cohen.

Alarmed, Lorca called her father, who was in Montreal. Within a couple of days, he returned to Los Angeles and immediately went to his bank. Actually, he asked me to lunch and proceeded to question me about Betsy Superfon, her friends, sex life, financial situation, etc. I began to wonder if he intended to blackmail her. Nothing else was mentioned. There he discovered, as he puts it, "improprieties." Lynch had linked her American Express bill directly to his personal chequing account Bald-faced lie , he says, and just days before his visit to the bank, he'd paid a $75,000 Amex bill on her behalf. He never learned what purchases the card had been used for, but says the credit card company reimbursed him. Demands an investigation. Cohen immediately removed Lynch's signing powers on the accounts. The next day, Cohen told Lynch she no longer had access to the bank accounts and he fired her. That afternoon, Cohen says the bank notified him that Lynch went to a different branch and attempted to withdraw $40,000 from one of his accounts. Leonard Cohen gave me $40,000 when we discussed the upcoming multi-million dollar deal that we anticipated would close in the not too distant future. I did not go to the bank that day. He then closed his bank account the next day and my employer was unable to cash the check on my behalf. He's a bald-faced liar and thief. He then called a lawyer and brought in a forensic accounting firm, Moss-Adams, which, in an investigation of all of Cohen's holdings, discovered "massive improprieties." Actually, Cohen's forensic accountant (who has NOT done the forensic accounting so I have asked the IRS to undertake this task) flew to San Francisco to meet my accountant and informed him that he was missing all corporate back up documentation relating to Blue Mist Touring, Traditional Holdings, LC Investments, LLC, etc. He then proceeded to perjure himself in his declaration in Cohen's retaliatory lawsuit against me. In all, the accountants discovered about $8.4 million had over time disappeared from his holdings, Cohen says. His retirement funds had been virtually depleted. The accountant discovered no such thing. Numbers were moved around these ledgers in an absurd manner. At one point, Anjani Thomas' house was literally in my column. Millions suddenly disappeared from my so-called column. The assignments - related to all streams of royalty income - dating back to 1967 were willfully ignored and not included in the so-called forensic accounting which is nothing other than a garbage, useless ledger that should be slam dunked into the trash can.

Neal Greenberg, a banker with a thriving investment firm - Neal Greenberg, a despicable man who I did not actually know, has now lost all of his client's money - including accounts belonging to many elderly people - and has been charged with fraud, etc., by the SEC - , had been brought in by Lynch to manage Cohen's money in 1996 - Leonard Cohen met with Greenberg when he came to Los Angeles; hired him; signed the paperwork; and had me verify (in his presence) that another Greenberg client (Peter Goldfarb) was satisfied with Greenberg's investment work - I thought Greenberg churned, invested in risky investments, and wondered if his commissions were illegal - , two years after Cohen went up Mount Baldy to study to be a Rinzai Zen Buddhist monk - Cohen can be seen on You Tube (Armelle Brusq's documentary from 1996) working on Mt. Baldy; he was in constant contact with me; and, advised Robert Hillburn, LA Times, in an interview that he was frequently in Los Angeles visiting his daughter and my office - . But now, he was worried - he was aware that I intended to report his tax fraud to the IRS and understood that I had been used horrrendously. Over two decades, Greenberg had built a successful company, the Agile Group, and managed more than half-a-billion dollars of other people's money. He enjoyed, as he says in his suit, a "spotless professional reputation." And suddenly, here was Leonard Cohen, not just a prized client but one with a high profile, suggesting that Greenberg was party to the disappearance of Cohen's retirement savings. Cohen's retirement did not disappear. He is a bald-faced liar who refused to repay his millions of dollars in personal loans from this entity which created a dangerous structure that could be overturned by the IRS. I was told, by my lawyers, that the penalties and interest on one entity - as of the fall of 2004 - came to approximately $10 million and there were similar penalties on two other entities.

Over the years, he says, he warned Cohen that his funds were being rapidly depleted, but it seemed the artist paid no heed. And now, Cohen and his lawyer, Kory, claims the Greenberg suit, were threatening "that Cohen would go out on tour to promote his new album and give interviews to reporters in which he would insinuate that he was touring because he had been bankrupted by improprieties by Greenberg and other financial advisers." Greenberg must have envisioned his business and his career in absolute tatters. He sued. I suppose after planning their companion suits, Cohen and his rotten thug lawyers (Kory and Rice) decided to tour to promote his new album and tell reporters that he was touring because of me. This clearly replaced Cohen's de riguer lies to the news media about Phil Spector or the "hand that rocked the cradle" articles about him and Rebecca DeMornay.

Greenberg's lawsuit lays out the business background to the dispute. Cohen's success as a singer and songwriter generated millions in royalties, the suit says, and in the 1990s, Lynch, as Cohen's trusted personal manager, began to investigate auctioning his intellectual properties, including copyrights to his song catalogue and continuing royalties for his songs. Cohen demanded these sales - see Greg McBowman who met with us and advised him NOT to sell the intellectual property. Cohen insisted. I thought it was a rotten idea also. Lynch, along with a tax consultant named Richard Westin, arranged two deals for Cohen's properties. Absurd. Where is the mention of all of Cohen's other advisers: Peter Shukat, Jeffrey Hafer, Jonas Herbsman, Peter Lopez (who Cohen refused to pay the $90,000 he owed him, naturally), Arthur Indursky, Don Friedman, Stuart Fried, Greg McBowman, Ed Dean, and others. This information has been concealed from Cohen's pure fictional account of my role in his criminal tax fraud adventures. The transactions were eventually completed, one in 1997, the other in 2001, with Sony Music. From the first sale, about $5 million was transferred to trusts that Greenberg had been enlisted to manage and that would protect Cohen from an upfront tax hit. Ed Dean, Cohen's lawyer for these trusts, was concerned about personal service contracts being assigned; the IRS promptly audited a charitable gift of stock to Mt. Baldy; etc. Greenberg says he invested the proceeds wisely, making lots of money for the trusts. But Greenberg also claims that Cohen's "consistent and prolific spending" to support "his extravagant 'celebrity' lifestyle" eroded the gains he had made on his client's behalf. I would like a complete audit of Greenberg's investments, commissions, and gains. Also his churning, etc.

The second sale of Cohen's intellectual property, in 2001, was for $8 million. With Westin, Lynch - See all other advisers who have been conveniently concealed in this fictional account and who were NOT working for me - put that money into a newly formed company named Traditional Holdings LLC that also was intended to shield Cohen's earnings from a major tax hit. Lynch was named as owner of 99.5 per cent of the company, leaving Cohen holding just 0.5 per cent See the Indemnity Agreement Cohen had his lawyer prepare on my behalf - I didn't understand how I was being used on this entity; requested this; Cohen signed it; and it pays my legal fees. This document has also been concealed although my so-called lawyers continually advised Cohen's lawyer to review it. Greenberg alleges that Cohen, well aware of the structure and its dangers, signed off on it. Westin had explained to Cohen, the suit says, that "the plan would only work if Cohen and Lynch maintained (as they had in the past) a long-term relationship of personal and professional trust." Traditional Holdings could also issue loans to its owners, Lynch and Cohen. Robert Kory wrote my lawyers to ask if Cohen's loans would be forgiven. The answer remains NO.

As soon as the new company was in place, "Greenberg was immediately alarmed by Cohen's desire and tendency to treat this company [Traditional Holdings] like his personal piggy bank," Cohen wasn't. He told me he planned to tour; understood the type of income he would make - including with respect to merchandising and publishing; and told me he did NOT trust Neal Greenberg and refused to invest the $1 million advance for "Dear Heather" with Greenberg. I have no idea why ... the lawsuit alleges. It goes on to claim Cohen took a $1-million advance on the second sale of assets to Sony, Lynch took a commission of $1.1 million - I didn't "take" a commission - see Cohen's fax to Greenberg paying HIS transaction fees from this entity which is completely outrageous and probably illegal since they totalled millions (30% from what Kory said) and I don't know that this was viewed as a commission since I never received a 1099 and Cohen's lawyer was supposed to "recharacterize" the nature (whatever that means) of these distributions ... , and fees for lawyers and accountants ate up another $714,000. Cohen's accountants and lawyers. Does he expect everyone to do volunteer work for him because he is one of the greediest men on earth? And then, over the next few years, Lynch regularly borrowed money Cohen regularly borrowed money - I didn't borrow money for Cohen ... HE borrowed money ...from the Traditional Holdings account in amounts of tens of thousands of dollars, sometimes for herself, sometimes acting for Cohen. The lawsuit claims that while Greenberg sent a monthly email statement to Cohen, it was always Lynch who told Greenberg to release the loans. No doubt a set up and planned this way. Greenberg and Cohen communicated on a monthly basis, by email, and could have easily confirmed everything with one another. Who knows what they did privately.

The Greenberg suit claims Lynch, always acting as Cohen's agent - I wasn't an agent on Traditional Holdings but did have a Power of Attorney as the thief/fraud Cohen travelled extensively - , told Greenberg what to do regarding the funds. For instance, Lynch instructed Greenberg to send Cohen the monthly email status reports, but Greenberg says she directed him to leave out day-to-day activities and the status of Traditional Holdings loans. Bald faced lie. Greenberg told me loans are assets (accountants have confirmed that this is a fact) and have to be included in the overall value of the accounts. Greenberg decided how to handle the courtesy draft emails that I definitely demanded because I didn't trust Cohen, Greenberg, or Westin and thought there was tax fraud on these entities. Because the loans were to be repaid, Greenberg included them in the statements as assets, which meant that it appeared as though nothing had been taken out. It didn't "appear" as though nothing had been taken out - it included the loans as assets with respect to the account's values.

Greenberg, who declined to comment for this article, claims in his suit he repeatedly stressed to Cohen that his spending was seriously draining his investments. In one warning letter, Greenberg told Cohen that Traditional Holdings had only $2.1 million left. Considering how quickly the money was leaving the account, Greenberg wrote, "I think you should consider your situation quite desperate." It's not clear if Cohen ever received this letter. Sure. Greenberg emailed Cohen monthly and wouldn't email him directly if he thought the situation was so dire. More bald faced lies. On this, Cohen and Greenberg agree: they say many of Greenberg's attempted communications with Cohen were intercepted by Lynch. Interesting that Greenberg and Cohen agree - nothing was "intercepted" by me. Everything was placed on Cohen's desk; in the files; and Cohen had a key to my office and no cabinets were locked. He frequently went over to my office to review his papers; mail; use my copier; etc. In fact, his daughter with my step-daughter ransacked my office one night because Lorca Cohen also had a key.

On other points, Cohen disagrees. He was vitally interested in his financial affairs, he says. "It wasn't that I wasn't involved - on the contrary, I took great pains to pay these professionals well and to solicit their advice and to follow it," he insists. "And, I was receiving a report every month from Neal Greenberg indicating that my retirement savings were safe." Cohen insists he was not made aware that Lynch had been named the majority owner of Traditional Holdings - Cohen insisted that TH be structured in this manner which is why I asked for an Indemnity Agreement; his lawyer then extinguished the annuity obligation from the tax return; extinguished my promissory note from the tax return; and engaged in other tax prep creativity that I believe can be viewed as participating in tax fraud; instead, he says that in an early description of the company's structure, he had been told that his two children, Lorca and Adam, - See Cohen and my emails to Westin. Cohen did NOT want Lorca and Adam Cohen as beneficiaries; no trust was ever discussed; and Kory told my lawyers that the plan was to role Traditional Holdings back into LC Investments, LLC (that Cohen declared in legal documents he owned 100% 0f) - avoiding all taxes on the income, obviously would be its principal owners. He says he was shocked to learn that Lynch had almost complete ownership. Leonard Cohen is a bald faced liar. See Richard Westin's 2006 letter, that I requested, explaining these entities to me and Cohen. Cohen received a copy of this letter. See other evidence as well. The mistake Cohen admits to is that "I paid close attention to everything except the possibility that my closest associate would embrace any irregularities in the discharge of her duties." One of Leonard Cohen's carefully crafted, fraudulent statements that dazzles awe inspired journalists - like Brian Johnson - and possibly dazzled Phil Spector's secret grand jury ...

Cohen also says he learned only recently that the two sales of his intellectual property to Sony were unnecessary. Then why did he demand them? He understands now that those properties earned roughly $400,000 a year, before taxes. He understood, when CAK sued him in 2000, that these properties made a great deal more than that - see Cohen's declaration in the failed CAK bond deal lawsuit. That was plenty for him to support what he calls his modest lifestyle. A man who gives gifts of $500,000 to Mt. Baldy; buys houses for his son and Anjani thomas; buys a building on Melrose in Los Angeles for his daughter; and is the last of the big time spenders lives a "modest" lifestyle then you fell hook, line, and sinker for yet another Cohen fictional account of hiself ... Cohen accuses Lynch of creating the deals in order to boost her own income. How creative! He paid her 15 per cent of his income, which generally earned her $90,000 a year, he says. With the sales of his intellectual property bringing in revenue in the millions, it boosted her income to seven figures. One time in 17 years. Pro rated it comes to very little for a person who worked as his personal manager, literary agent, publicist, archivist, publishing manager, personal slave, etc.

Greenberg's lawsuit becomes more disturbing as it describes what happened after Cohen realized he'd lost millions of dollars. Greenberg says Cohen pressured him to go after his firm's insurance company for the money to repay him. The IRS should contact Greenberg's insurance firm to see if any type of insurance fraud was committed or reported to them ... "Be a man," Cohen told Greenberg, the suit says. By threatening [Cohen has now threatened me, Ann Diamond, Steven Machat, and others - he has also falsely accused my elderly parents, sister and her husband, and others - these are the tactics the not-so-enlightened thief and con artist employs when his wrong-doing is exposed and then there's his unconscionable lies in the Phil Spector matter] his reputation, it appeared to Greenberg that Cohen, on Kory's advice, had decided to target Greenberg's and his insurance company's deep pockets. Then, alleges the lawsuit, Cohen and Kory began to pressure Lynch to join them in "their extortion scheme." From November 2004 to April 2005, the lawsuit says, Kory repeatedly let Lynch know, sometimes directly, sometimes through friends or other intermediaries, that Cohen was ready to "forgive" Lynch's obligations to him, and that she in fact could receive a hefty cut of "whatever funds could be extorted from Greenberg and other advisers with her co-operation." Bald faced lie. Cohen/Kory NEVER told me I would receive a "hefty cut of whatever funds could be extorted from Greenberg and other advisers with" my cooperation. Perhaps Boies Schiller did give me good advice when they advised me to record my meetings with Robert Kory because they felt Cohen/Kory were attempting to engage me in criminal conduct.

Greenberg's suit alleges that when Lynch refused to participate, Kory and Cohen vowed to "crush her." I suppose this is why someone just wrote me that Cohen's "extravaganza" with respect to me proves he is Mafioso. Others are wondering why he isn't in prison. It goes on to say their "tactics to terrorize, silence, or disparage Lynch" included threatening her that she would go to jail, and "paying two paroled convicts to make statements that they had observed Lynch's older son brandishing a gun and threatening to kill someone." My older son never brandished a gun or threatened to kill anyone but Cohen had no problem lying about my older son also. He is the scum of the earth.

Lynch's response to all of this has been bitter - and I have no plans to send thank you notes for these thug-like criminal tactics - , scattered and in some cases difficult to comprehend. In a rambling exchange of emails with Maclean's last week, she denied any wrongdoing. She also declined to discuss the Agile Group's lawsuit, describing it as "bogus" and "slanderous," while promising to file her own complaints against Cohen and other principal players in the case. She added her phone had been disconnected because she lacked money to pay the bills.

In the meantime, she's been showering Cohen and others with invective-laden emails that alternately voice misery and hurl accusations at friends and former colleagues. Many of these lament losing custody of her 12-year-old son, Ray, to his father, music producer Steve Lindsay. Lindsey, Cohen, Kory, and possibly others, clearly coordinated the custody matter the day SWAT rolled by, held me hostage, used my son as a human shield, threatened to shoot me and my dog, and hauled me to Killer King - questioning me about Phil Spector en route ... A few devolve into the outrightly bizarre. One missive, sent July 17 and obtained by Maclean's, invites Greenberg in highly explicit terms to Lynch's home for an evening of tantric sex. "First I want to study the inner channels with you," it says. "Why not - let's see who is better at tantric sex - you or me." This was in response to Greenberg calling me to discuss private annuities and advising me , absurdly, that he takes classes in "tantic sex."

So troubling have the messages become that several people who know Lynch fear she's become unhinged. "I'm afraid she's suicidal," says Lindsay, her ex-husband, adding that in his judgment she's been acting erratically for the better part of a year. Steven Clark Lindsey has a pattern of destroying his children and has now taken two children from two mothers in one lifetime. He is a bald-faced liar, owes me hundreds of thousands of dollars, and attempted to have my older son go in and sign over/transfer my former house to Cohen/Kory. There was apparently money in it for Lindsey, naturally. Cohen too sent Lynch a message last fall spelling out his concern in verse: You can't tell the difference between a threat / and a helping hand, he wrote. You can't tell the difference between a threat / and a solemn warning / from one of the few people / who still cares about you and your family. Cohen underestimates me - I understand a threat. He doesn't understand how to stop lying, stealing, or conning others. This fraud cares about my family? What a shameless liar.

Lynch's apparent troubles have had punishing legal consequences. Lindsay has obtained a temporary restraining order that prevents her from visiting her son. Tara Cooper, a former employee of a greeting card company - who appears to have been in touch with Lindsey and who advised many people that she took out a fraudulent TRO to stay out of the custody matter, etc. - Lynch started while still in Cohen's employ, has taken out a similar order after alleging that Lynch sent threatening emails and harassed her by phone. And two of her creditors - upscale department stores Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman - have filed collections claims against her in Los Angeles Superior Court.

This is the mess that Leonard Cohen - a man many believe floats a few inches above the ground If anyone believes that this lying con artist fraud and thief floats above the ground they need to seek immediate psychiatric care - finds himself in. These days, he's Zen-like. In the course of a long interview by phone from his home in Los Angeles, the man sometimes called the poet laureate of pessimism sounded almost bemused. "What can I do?" he asks. "I had to go to work. I have no money left. I'm not saying it's bad; I have enough of an understanding of the way the world works to understand that these things happen."

His first choice of action when he learned his money was gone, he says, was to not do anything. Really? He offered me anything I wanted ... Aware of how painful litigation could be, he says he wanted no part of it. "I said, 'I can walk away with nothing.' I said, 'Let me start again. Let me start fresh at 70. I can cobble together a little nest egg again.' " More carefully crafted fraudulent lies and fiction ... But he ran into a glaring, immediate problem: had he done nothing, he would have legally been responsible for the funds that had gone missing. And on that money, he'd owe millions in taxes, a sum he no longer had. Let's not forget Cohen's motive - the millions he owes in taxes and then there's the $30 million or so in penalties, etc.

His next step, "his second-best choice," was to negotiate with his advisers about the missing money. He approached Lynch, asking her to open her books. I didn't have any books other than the corporate books and records which were transmitted to his lawyers by my lawyers - this was documented in a letter at the time "She resolutely and unconditionally refused to open her books to any scrutiny whatsoever and instead began a bizarre email campaign to discredit me in some kind of way, which has gone all over the place," Cohen says, adding that he's launching a lawsuit this week with great reluctance. "I don't want anybody hurt. What a pathetic fraud and liar. It's not my nature to pursue and to contend with people that way." People who actually know this liar view him as a monster capable of anything. Cohen says all he wants is to find out where the money went. "I'm not accusing her of theft," he says of Lynch. Still, his countersuit will likely describe how money was removed from his accounts. What counter-suit? His retaliatory suit in response to my reporting his tax fraud to the IRS? The only thing described in that suit was Cohen's lies, fraud, perjury, concealment, etc.

Cohen appears to have been blindsided by Greenberg's lawsuit. He insists that he and Kory were in the midst of mediation with Greenberg when the financial adviser's lawsuit was suddenly and unexpectedly filed. He says the mediation had been confidential, at Greenberg's urging, as he feared for his reputation. In an email to Greenberg, Cohen urges him to make good. "Dear Neal, I believed in you. I depended on you," Cohen wrote in November 2004. "When things went wrong, does it make any sense that you would make your warnings available to the only person in the cosmos who had an interest in deceiving me? A single, simple email informing me that my accounts were being emptied would have been enough. I answered EVERY SINGLE EMAIL you ever sent me. Fortunately, I have them all. And, Cohen answered EVERY SINGLE EMAIL to Greenberg. How fascinating.

"Face up to it, Neal," the email continues, "and square your shoulders: You were the trusted guardian of my assets, and you let them slip away … Cohen certainly is clear at this point - Greenberg's the "guardian" of the "assets." I'm also clear about this. Restore what you lost, and sleep well." In his sign-off, Cohen delivered as much a piece of advice as his own philosophy: "Put this behind you and it will dissolve." What could this possibly mean? There's an irony here, that a man who has struggled much of his life to distance himself from the material world now, at 70, finds himself in an intense battle with it. Still, he's not defeated. "This has propelled us into incessant work," he says of himself and Thomas. He exudes optimism about their new CD. "It's one of the best albums I've heard." It's not closing time quite yet. It is most certainly not closing time for this lying con artist fraud and thief. I tend to doubt he's heard the last from Phil Spector either.
