The lawyer for the girl accusing Ryan Seacrest of demeaning and sexually aggressive habits demanded eight figures, and if Seacrest did not pay up her legal professional vowed to go to the media … sources inform TMZ.
The girl — who labored as Seacrest’s stylist — alleges Seacrest engaged in varied types of misconduct from 2007 to 2010. Seacrest has adamantly denied the claims.
Sources accustomed to the case inform TMZ, the girl’s lawyer contacted Seacrest’s legal professional and first demanded $15 million and, when the lawyer was instructed to take a hike, later mentioned someplace within the 7 figures could be acceptable.
Our sources say the girl’s lawyer had a gathering with Seacrest’s legal professional — Seacrest was on the cellphone — and her lawyer learn aloud a press launch that he mentioned he would ship to the media until Seacrest met her monetary calls for.
It seems the statute of limitations each civilly and criminally would have run out on all of her claims, that are older than 6 years. As a consequence, the one leverage in getting cash could be making the allegations public and embarrassing him.
The lawyer for the accuser tells TMZ, his shopper “wanted an apology from Ryan and validation of what had happened and what she got was a complete rejection of the allegations and a request that she not go forward with an interview with NBC investigators.” The lawyer denies he made a $15 million demand.
