RumorFix has learned that the lawyer representing two masseurs in the John Travolta sexual assault case filed for bankruptcy in 2011.
Okorie Okorocha filed for Chapter 7 on July 5, 2011 with roughly $1.2 million in financial liabilities. Documents obtained by RumorFix show that Mr. Okorocha had owed over $130,000 in student loan debt, and approximately $20,000 in credit card debt. His average monthly income was reported at $8,354, but his monthly expenses were the same amount not leaving room for any financial flexibility.
The Southern California based attorney also owed money on a Pasadena home, a 2009 VW automobile and $9,000 to our friends at the IRS.
Okorocha tells RumorFix, “I am doing better [now] than I ever have financially. Half of my work is volunteer for indigent people. I am not [trying] to be a rich Hollywood lawyer. I volunteer more than any other lawyer and that is not a money maker. But, people need help, are broke, disabled or just getting screwed and I do all I can for them.”
Speaking of getting screwed, Okorie Okorocha is representing two men who claim that John Travolta improperly solicited sexual favors from them during massage sessions in Beverly Hills and Atlanta; claims vehemently denied by Travolta’s lawyer, Marty Singer.
