Daughter to world-renowned women’s rights attorney Gloria Allred, Lisa Bloom, is back in headlines as she’s ready to take on her next case. With all of the stories surfacing surrounding T.I. and Tiny’s with other women, thanks to former family friend Sabrina Peterson, Bloom is coming forward to now announce her involvement.
Lisa Bloom has spent years following the footsteps of her mother in representing women who have been wronged at the hands of men with power. Politico describes both Bloom and her mother as “synonymous with aggressive legal strategy on behalf of wronged women, and relentless public-relations campaigns against rich and influential men.”
Bloom’s clientele ranks from famous names such as Janice Dickinson, a former model, and actress and one of Bill Cosby’s accusers, as well as actress Mischa Barton with whom she gained a victory in her revenge porn case. Bloom was also known to represent Blac Chyna in her case against Rob Kardashian as well. She also gained notoriety for representing accusers of then Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly.
One of her tactics that she’s known to do is hold press conferences with her clients. “I typically represent the underdog against a very powerful entity or individual,” Bloom said as told by The Ringer in 2017. “So I have to be more creative. I can’t just think of the law and the courtroom; I have to think bigger. We use the media, for example, to publicly shame people. That really tends to level the playing field.” That same year, she also represented then 21-year old Quantasia Sharpton after she accused Usher of allegedly giving her an STD. The case was later dismissed.
Bloom’s reputation began to sour when it was reported that the advocate for women was an advisor on Harvey Weinstein’s legal team. After days of public backlash directed towards her, she decided to walk away from representing him, citing it a “colossal mistake”. In the same interview with The Ringer, she says of the Weinstein incident, ”I thought this was an opportunity to change the narrative. I thought that this was an opportunity to work with somebody on the other side and try to get them to behave better. I don’t usually have opportunities like that, and I got tired of the old playbook. I thought that we would do something different, and it would be an improvement. But obviously, it was not well received.”
Now in 2021, Bloom is reportedly ready to take on her next big cases. Recently, she has announced that she will be representing “several men with allegations against [fashion designer] Alexander Wang” that started to spread on social media. “The fashion industry is long overdue for a reckoning of its frequent, disturbing mistreatment of models. I’ve represented many alleging misconduct in recent years,” said Bloom to Yahoo! News. “Models are not props, and they have the same rights to workplace respect as everyone else. I thank everyone who has reached out in support, and I’m happy to speak for free and confidentially to any others, including witnesses.”
Not only is she planning on representing those men, she also plans to take on one of T.I. and Tiny’s alleged accusers. While most have felt the stories were unsubstantiated, Bloom’s announcement seems to make the case a little more real. She retweeted an account of one of the alleged accuser’s stories, while saying “Good Lord. So many accusers.”
Bloom then dropped the bombshell: “And now i represent one of them.”
