Ken Sunshine, Shawn Sachs, and Tiffany Shipp,

I am writing you as Leonard Cohen's former personal manager.  I understand that you are Cohen's media contact.  I would like to advise you that I have been relentlessly slandered and maligned in the news media.  I realize Leonard Cohen is a famous celebrity with powerful publishers and access to LAPD's celebrity unit (Threat Management).  I am also aware that Leonard Cohen has had a creepy private investigator essentially stalking me for a number of years.  Close Range evidently works closely with LAPD's TMU and LA prosecutors.  My friends referred to the individual PI as "creepy."

I reported allegations that Leonard Cohen committed criminal tax fraud to IRS on April 15, 2005, have provided them with an abundance of evidence, and have documented everything I have gone through since reporting this tax fraud to tax authorities.  IRS requires Leonard Cohen to provide me with information that refuses to provide me with.  Cohen, in the alternative, used the situation to accuse me of harassing him.  He has lied to LAPD's TMU extensively and I have discussed this matter with them.  LAPD's TMU concluded that my emails to Cohen were generally requests for tax information.

Cohen has, as his financial adviser noted he would in June 2005, used fraudulent restraining orders against me in an attempt to undermine my credibility as a witness, etc.  Neal Greenberg's lawsuit against Cohen sets forth very serious allegations that Cohen and his lawyer, Robert Kory, have engaged in a conspiracy, witness tampering, witness intimidation, bribery, extortion, and so forth.  They raised, as have I, issues related to Cohen being the alter ego of certain corporate entities who has engaged in self-dealing.

Cohen obtained a fraudulent default judgment against me.  I am attempting to ask LA Superior Court to refer Cohen to the appropriate authorities for a perjury prosecution.  I was not served his lawsuit.  He has a team of lawyers who are evidently willing to do and say anything.  I, my family, friends, and others have been criminally harassed over this situation for years.  Cohen's fan, who copies in his lawyer, a suspicious Bay Area lawyer, who argues Cohen's legal points, and others, have engaged in what appears to be a highly coordinated campaign of criminal harassment.  I have addressed this with LAPD, LAPD TMU, LA County Sheriff's Department, FBI, IRS, DOJ, Treasury, FTB, and others.  
Leonard Cohen flew into Boulder, Colorado, in the middle of his 2008 European tour, to obtain yet another fraudulent restraining order.  He testified that he was concerned i would attend his concert.  That concert was scheduled nearly one year after the extraordinary flight into Boulder.  Cohen's concerns, per the paperwork, were my communications with third parties (IRS, FBI, DOJ, Treasury, FTB, Dennis Riordan, Paul Shaffer, Bob Dylan, and Oliver Stone are some of the parties he testified about) and my communications with journalists or online posts refuting the slander.  Sylvie Simmons garbage book helped Cohen further slander and defame me.  

Cohen then took the 2008 Boulder order and fraudulently registered it in California as a domestic violence order.  He testified that we were lovers although he testified in a contradictory manner in another hearing.  Cohen also testified that I never stole from him - just his peace of mind.  I have asked IRS and FTB to take that into consideration when determining whether or not Cohen's IRS/FTB refunds were fraudulently obtained.  He also advised MacLean's in his interview coordinated to appear when his retaliatory lawsuit was filed.  I reported Cohen's tax fraud to IRS on April 15, 2005 and he retaliated.  

Feel free to read Ann Diamond's draft article highlighting the facts of this situation.  Simmons evidently quoted liberally from that article although she never bothered to contact me.  That speaks volumes about what she was willing to do to obtain access to Cohen and his archives.  I have also attached a declaration filed with LA Superior Court setting for the history and some of the evidence I have provided IRS and others.  I also intend to move to dismiss Cohen's fraudulent domestic violence order.  This man has offered me, among other things, 50% community property.  That was evidently meant to coerce me into testifying against his representatives.  I refused.  

The corporate books, records, tax returns, and other evidence prove that i have an ownership in numerous Cohen-related entities and IP.  Cohen has simply fabricated a narrative that seems to have satisfied LA Superior Court.  IRS, FTB and State of Kentucky continue to view me as a partner on those entities.  I received no over-payments re. my commissions as personal manager.  As I have advised IRS, the expense ledger Cohen submitted to the Court is evidence of accounting and financial fraud.  Information Cohen has transmitted to IRS, FTB, and State of Kentucky also proves this fact.

I would appreciate your giving this situation some consideration given the fact that I continue to be slandered and defamed in the news media.  I, my sons, family, Paulette Brandt (Phil Spector's former personal assistant and girlfriend), and many others continue to be criminally harassed.  I am documenting that situation for IRS, FBI, DOJ, Treasury, FTB, Dennis Riordan, and others.

Kelley Lynch
