Kelley Lynch's Email to Leonard Cohen's Lawyers Re. Outstanding Tax & Corporate Issues

To: Robert Kory <>, Michelle Rice <>, "*irs. commissioner" <*>, Washington Field <>, ASKDOJ <>, ": Division, Criminal" <>, "Doug.Davis" <>, Dennis <>, MollyHale <>, fsb <>, rbyucaipa <>, khuvane <>, blourd <>, Robert MacMillan <>, a <>, wennermedia <>, Mick Brown <>, "glenn.greenwald" <>, Harriet Ryan <>, "hailey.branson" <>, "stan.garnett" <>, Mike Feuer <>, "mayor.garcetti" <>, Opla-pd-los-occ <>, "Kelly.Sopko" <>, Whistleblower <>, Attacheottawa <>,, alan hootnick <>, bruce <>

Robert Kory & Michelle Rice,

I am writing to follow up on my August 24, 2016 letter to Leonard Cohen re. outstanding tax and corporate matters.  As these issues were unresolved at the time of Cohen's death, I would appreciate your providing me with the name of the individual who will serve as Cohen's estate representative.  I will note that I have spoken with LAPD's TMU (and other units) about this tax request and would like to refer you to the U.S. Constitution and Supremacy Clause.  LAPD has no jurisdiction whatsoever over federal tax matters although their report re. my alleged emails confirmed that they were generally requests for tax information.  

The information I have requested was due me well in advance of entry of the fraud default judgment.  I am requesting information for the years 2004 and 2005.  Leonard Cohen personally testified that he and I parted ways on October 21, 2004.  He also testified that I never stole from him - just his peace of mind - but nevertheless appears to have used LA Superior Court Case No. BC338322 as a tax deduction.  Cohen also failed to repay his nearly $8 million in loans/advances from TH.  Cohen personally signed the attached Annuity Agreement.  

Apart from the IRS required tax and corporate information I am requesting (which includes form 1099, forms K-1, corporate accountings, profit and loss statements, loan documents, IP asset valuations, tax returns, and so forth), I am demanding access to the corporate books and records at this time.  That would include, but is not limited to, all royalty statements, evidence of income and expenses, asset valuations, tax returns, and a schedule of sums Leonard Cohen, LCI, and any other entity/party that collected income, related to income collected that was generated by IP owned by BMT.

On another note, I continue to be slandered.  Leonard Cohen is the individual who embezzled from corporations, unlawfully transferred my property and the property of suspended corporations to himself via a fraud default judgment, and has stolen millions of dollars from me.  That would include with respect to commissions that most certainly were not addressed on any fabricated expense ledger.  I am advising you that the ongoing slander, including re. the fraudulent domestic violence order, should immediately cease and desist.

I look for\ward to your response.

Mr. Cutler, Mr. Riordan, and Mr. Sevilla,

Attached hereto (and enclosed below), please find a copy of a letter I am mailing to Phillip today.  The content is self-explanatory.  I do hope the prison guards pass the letter onto him.  We shall see.  I've informed Phillip that I was sending copies of this letter to his attorneys (past and present).

All the best,

Dear Phillip,

How are you?  Feel free to assume that’s a rhetorical question.  

I don’t know if you heard that Leonard Cohen passed away.  He has now been glorified by the Prime Minister of Canada (a country where Cohen cannot reside due to tax and residence problems), the news media (where you and I continue to be slandered with his fictitious and fraudulent statements) and, most astounding of all, Israeli President Reuven RivlinIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and the Israeli Defense Force who have saluted their “dear friend.”  I found the Israeli glorification of Cohen mind-boggling.  After all, this is a man who gave the Sieg Heil on stage in Germany and attempted to start a riot in Israel while high on LSD.  That particular incident was recorded on a film owned by Steven Machat.  Cohen actually stole the film, “Bird On A Wire” from Steven but eventually agreed to return it.  You may recall Marty’s disdain over the latter incident.  

In any event, up until the moment of his death, Leonard Cohen – with an army of professionals – continued to target and lie about me, submitted fraudulent and perjured legal documents to numerous courts, and generally behaved as the individual we personally know him to be.  I now have four appeals before the Second Appellate Division.  They relate to Cohen’s fraudulent domestic violence order, fraudulent renewal of judgment, my fraud upon the court motion (which the court “mischaracterized” as a motion to reconsider), and LA Superior Court’s sealing of corporate and other records.  I believe you are well aware of the fact that Cohen and I were never in anything that resembled a “dating” relationship.  Nevertheless, LA Superior Court simply assigned me a “dating” relationship with Cohen.  

I have never seen anything like LA Superior Court in my entire life.  They have routinely provided Leonard Cohen, based on fraudulent misrepresentations and perjured statements, orders, judgments, and even verdicts.  After recently receiving jury duty notice, I wrote the Court and asked it to investigate all the fraudulently procured judgments, orders, and verdicts that now involve me.  It seems more than obvious that some form of remedy is required.  I mentioned the fact that Leonard Cohen now has three versions of his good rock ‘n roll gun story about you before LA Superior Court.  His testimony during my so-called 2012 trial contradicted the version the prosecutors used in your case.  I have not seen the Grand Jury transcript but Mick Brown, who reviewed it, informed me that Cohen’s statements or testimony were in fact presented to your Grand Jury.  A third version was transmitted to the City Attorney’s Office by Cohen personally at the outset of my trial.  It’s difficult to imagine which version the government actually believes.  Of course, Cohen told me for approximately twenty years that you never held a gun on him and his stories about you were merely good rock ‘n roll stories.  

What I want to discuss with you today is Bay Area lawyer Stephen Gianelli.  I’ve previously written you about him.  Stephen Gianelli is most definitely an agent provocateur, infiltrator, fixer, and very twisted individual.  I think the best way to summarize his personality and conduct is to ask you to read Ann Diamond’s piece on him.  Gianelli has stalked, harassed, and slandered her for years.  He has also stalked, harassed, slandered, threatened, and intimidated me, Paulette, and many witnesses who have provided me with declarations.  He literally terrorized my sons for over seven straight years.  Ms. Diamond was Cohen’s former friend, lover, and someone involved with him immediately following the recording of “Death of a Ladies’ Man.”  Ann most definitely understands this dangerous clown.  

Ann Diamond on Stephen Gianelli

When Stephen Gianelli’s emails land in my inbox, mostly out of the blue and unsolicited, they are so overflowing with repetitive accusations, misinformation, threats, self-aggrandizing boasts, undiluted rage, and general nastiness that it's next to impossible to read to the end of one of them. My impulse is always to ignore them and tell him to stop sending them. That he seems to have unlimited energy  and endless time to go over all these details with someone he does not know in an attempt to win me over, while at the same time he constantly accuses me of having an ancient axe to grind with Cohen (i.e. I'm a hopeless case, as far as he's concerned, so he's barking furiously up the wrong tree), would under normal circumstances be a sign of mental imbalance.

He always throws in plenty of insults, false statements and fanciful deductions. His tone is that of a pitbull straining at the leash and gives me flashbacks of a courtroom where I’m being cross-examined by a vicious criminal lawyer whose whole strategy is to exhaust and terrorize the witness. Gianelli’s game is to complicate and obfuscate, mixing legal arguments with irrelevant nonsense. He seems to assume his opponent is stupid and weak and can be overwhelmed by a word-salad. I think some of this could be caused by his overuse of "copy and paste" --  he's in a hurry and not really writing "to me" or trying to make a persuasive argument. He doesn’t reread his emails to see what kind of message they actually convey: that the writer is standing on some soapbox in his mind, shouting at the world, like certain mental patients you see walking the streets who seem to be mad at the air, the cars, the sidewalk.

He's obviously not interested in holding a discussion, getting to the truth, or looking beyond the various documents he "downloaded at his own expense"  -- and as anyone with common sense knows, legal documents don't prove what really happened in 2004-5.  They convey some of the evidence, all of it coming from one side.

Gianelli's explanation as to why he's been out to get Kelley Lynch since 2008, does not make sense either. He claims she slandered him and called him names on the internet, and in revenge he has totally immersed himself in her legal case. To the point of contacting her relatives and friends, spreading false stories about her, making up quotes, “writing her in jail”, posting photos of her residence and roommates on his blog – for the past seven years. Nobody in their right mind, let alone a 'successful trial lawyer' -- who has no material interest in this case, and is not a paid shill -- behaves like this. It's not just extremely unprofessional, it would land him on 'stress leave' or in serious trouble with his colleagues and peers if he were still practicing. Hiding behind the handle Blogonaut would not conceal his identity for long, especially not on the porous internet. His badly written and often illogical, emotional rants would embarrass and bring him close to professional suicide.

But apparently since he's retired, and apparently well-off, and lives in a comfortable tax haven on Crete, he doesn't seem to care and just indulges his childish fantasies and catty remarks with his tiny circle of  cronies. It’s fairly obvious he uses alternate accounts and different IDs, e.g. “Mongochili,” to make it appear others read his blog and share his ‘obcession’ with Lynch. His sheer extremism indicates he is either a “rogue criminal lawyer” gone slightly postal, or a paid agent of Leonard Cohen and/or his legal team.  I think the latter.

I think his over-the-top campaign will have the opposite effect than the one intended: it can only make people suspicious of the case against Kelley Lynch. Otherwise, why not let justice take its course? Why subject her to endless attacks over the internet if she has already been declared guilty? This kind of harassment resembles 'gang stalking' -- except that Gianelli seems to be both the leader and most of the membership of his own gang.

Gianelli is like no other email correspondent I have ever had. A single-paragraph response from my end always leads to a flood from his. Each exchange is like a trip down a rabbithole of  irrational rage. Here and there he mixes in details and facts which might be worth discussing, if they weren’t drowned by high-volume invective. Of course this could be a tactic:  if he really was ever a successful trial lawyer, it may have been by being an insufferable bully. Or maybe most of his cases involved low-life criminals or people with little or no education. 

He claims to have accurately predicted the outcome of every Lynch hearing -- but then so could I. As we all know, cases are won on technicalities. That's one of the reasons, including the 10-year series of precedents, that I am not surprised the judge dismissed Kelley's motion. 

If Gianelli were truly a respectable lawyer, he would restrict his comments to these legal matters, and not engage in bizarre slander and speculation. He would have no need to bring up my "past" - or a wacked version of it that sounds like it came from someone on Cohen's disinfo team. He draws from a psychological profile that is easily recognizable because I have heard it from other Cohen groupies. As someone who saw a bit too much when I knew Cohen, I’m no stranger to slander, I've written out my story on a public blog etc. where anyone can read what I have to say. Much of what I have written on Cohen was initially to defend myself against gossip and rumours that were circulated (and believed) by some of his friends. My side is completely different, much more detailed and accurate. It's also quite revealing of the life of a clever pop idol in our celebrity-worshiping culture. There's no point in my arguing with people who base their opinions on ridiculous myths, like the 'restraining order' that never was. Cohen's deceptive tactics have not really evolved in the past twenty years, since he used them on me.

I really don't care if Gianelli thinks I am a star-struck 'scorned woman' who never got over her passing encounter with greatness. This Mafia-style lawyer's fixed opinions, based on trashy clich├ęs say much more about him than they do about me or my writing, or why I became interested in what really happened to Kelley Lynch.

And of course, no one would ever suspect Leonard Cohen of encouraging Gianelli. But in my experience, Gianelli is exactly the kind of human megaphone Cohen places in charge of his 'secret business.' Like other clowns from Cohen's private entourage that I have met over the years, he may not even realize he's being used because he is ridiculous and therefore disposable. It's a fascinating system that owes much to the criminal underworld that Leonard Cohen skirts with all the skill of someone born into it. I'm sure Gianelli feels at home, and knows his place, in that world where he acts the part of a useful idiot whose job is to create a circus atmosphere and put the audience into a deeper state of trance.

I am by now firmly convinced Lynch is a patsy/victim of a weird consortium of Cohen associates, clueless supporters, and Cohen himself. If I hadn't lived next door to Leonard Cohen, and witnessed similar dynamics twenty years ago, I might believe differently. But the essence of what happened to Kelley also happened to me, two decades ago, on a lesser scale with lower stakes. It was relatively easy for me to walk away from it back then – my reputation was damaged but my life was not utterly destroyed by my association with Leonard Cohen, as Kelley's was.

I empathize with her situation, and see it as just one more story of the corruption that is sinking the whole world. I know Leonard Cohen would agree with that. He would only disagree with the idea that we all have an obligation to oppose injustice, rather than 'let it go by' and even profit from it.  

Ann D.

Let’s review who Stephen Gianelli is, how I encountered him, and what his activity consists of to date.  At some point in the spring of 2009, I stumbled upon Blogonaut’s Law Blog.  This blog was owned and run by Stephen Gianelli.  At that time, the blog seemed devoted to you and your trial.  Gianelli, a Bay Area lawyer, began focusing on your trial when Doron Weinberg announced that he was representing you.  I was surprised to find Michelle Blaine and Sprocket posting on Gianelli’s so-called law blog.  I had recently discovered Blaine’s entirely vindictive, vile, and vulgar blog.  In an attempt to defend you, and address factual issues related to Leonard Cohen, I posted a handful of comments on Blogonaut’s Law Blog.  In response, I was first attacked and subsequently “banned.”  Given the fact that this man pretends to support you, I found that of interest.  

In or around May 2009, Gianelli would publicly post that he heard from Leonard Cohen’s lawyers, Kory & Rice.  He also informed me that Pat Dixon was behind the Boulder, Colorado incident at Deneuve Construction I phoned you about.  He has also stated that he worked with the City Attorney on two occasions to have me falsely arrested.  Investigator Frayeh, who was an investigator on your case, informed me that Gianelli may have found a “sympathetic ear” about me with prosecutor Alan Jackson.  

Sometime soon after I posted on Gianelli’s blog, I received an email from Joff Belark who advised me that he was a journalist, interested in hearing my version of events, and was writing an article about the situation with Cohen.  That individual turned out to be Stephen Gianelli, the article was a hit piece, and this was the beginning of Gianelli’s endless criminal conduct with respect to me, my sons, sister, brother-in-law, elderly parents, witnesses, and just about everyone in my life.  He attempts to isolate me while threatening, intimidating, insulting, and slandering anyone who supports me or anyone who has provided me with a declaration.  Gianelli also transmits fraudulent and false statements to government agencies about me and attempts to elicit information.  Rutger would write “Belark” in response to his slanderous article.  He heard back and was then targeted for over seven straight years.  The same is true for Ray who was targeted since he was a minor.  

Gianelli’s blog, from what I can tell, was essentially dedicated to setting up reasonable doubt theories about you, permitting people (including himself as he uses monikers) to attack those theories, trashing me, and defending and promoting Leonard Cohen’s legal positions.  Gianelli attempts to infiltrate matters.  For example, he contacted IRS Chief Trial Counsel’s Office about a matter I filed with Tax Court in Washington, DC.  That matter involved a fraudulent Petition Leonard Cohen submitted to that Court.  Gianelli also contacted Bruce Cutler, using me to do so, and attempted to elicit information about you.  These are just two examples of matters Gianelli has attempted to infiltrate.  He has worked in tandem with numerous individuals such as Michelle Blaine and Susanne Walsh (Leonard Cohen’s fan).  Gianelli and Blaine literally targeted my email accounts and blogs causing them to be shut down.  My blogs were devoted to your case and innocence.  In June 2009, Blaine posted the following statements on her blog:

Something kinda interesting... Henry Lee does NOT list the Spector case in his 'Famous Cases' listing.”

“Updated! Kelley Lynch Blog Is GONE! Blogger finally listened and has pulled the flagged blog. Thanks to all who flagged and especially to Blogonaut for initiating the pull.”

For years, Gianelli also worked in tandem with Cohen’s fan, Susanne Walsh, who would frequently copy Cohen’s lawyers on her harassing communications.  Their activity took place in harassing email communications and across the worldwide web.  Gianelli has also mailed me and others letters.  As a friend of mine (who was also targeted by Gianelli after providing me with a declaration noted), he is a psychopath.  I am clearly a 24/7 job for this man.  

The activity on the internet, as is true for you personally, was and remains deranged.  Whenever I post a comment, Gianelli and his fellow cyber-terrorists descend.  For example, in October 2009, I commented on a site called  They had published an article on Leonard Cohen which contained defamatory remarks about me.  I therefore responded.  

Phawker posted my comment under the link:  “Leonard Cohen Is Not A Great Man.”  My comments were as follows:

Leonard Cohen is not a great man. He appears to have committed criminal tax fraud that I reported to the IRS, probably perjured himself in Phil Spector’s grand jury, defrauded me of millions, and seems to think it’s acceptable to lie in every courtroom he shows up in. There is nothing great about a calculated fraud liar. I am praying that Phil Spector nails him on his probable perjury and I personally will be litigating my own situation against him in the not too distant future. While journalists may be awed by a man who also appears to have a pattern of stealing from his advisers (Marty Machat comes to mind) ordinary folks are not impressed with his involvement with the destruction of my life. I’m not particularly impressed by his lawyer’s Declaration in my young son’s custody matter (which I view as coercion, witness tampering, an attempt to obstruct justice, etc.) and I found it truly deranged that he went into my young son’s father’s office to “allege” that I had sex with Oliver Stone. This just confirmed, to me, that Cohen is obsessed with me and keenly interested in my sex life. I never had sex with Oliver Stone and I was not Leonard Cohen’s lover. He is merely a pathological liar who believes Phil Spector and I will take the fall for him.
Kelley Lynch [former manager of Leonard Cohen]
Almost immediately after this was posted, Susanne Walsh (Cohen’s fan whose emails and posts Gianelli may actually write) descended.  Gianelli and others descended as well.  What unfolded can be described as nothing other than a psychotic attack on me.  Rutger was threatened.  Ray, who was a minor at the time, made an appearance.  He was literally asked to communicate privately with these adult strangers.  Ray would ultimately provide me with a declaration confirming that the emails he received from Gianelli, Walsh, and others (with Cohen’s lawyers copied in at times) made him physically ill.  Rutger has taken a far stronger position.  

The individuals posting on Phawker may very well have been made up primarily of fake names assumed by Stephen Gianelli.  That would include, but is not limited to, Kelly Green.  Kelly Green was a prolific commenter on Gianelli’s blog.  This particular aspect of Gianelli’s personality has it out for me.  At some point, I would end up being questioned on Phawker about you, Dr. Lee, and Dr. Baden and wondered if Alan Jackson himself was posting as “Kelly Green.”  It’s entirely possible that “Kelly Green” is some type of composite account.  I personally believe “Kelly Green” is in fact Stephen Gianelli.  

Interestingly enough, I would discover that as of 2007, Kelly Green had posted on the Darwin Exception that covered your trial.  The blog was dedicated to demonizing you.  The trial coverage on that blog appeared to have been written by a lawyer.  On September 2, 2007, below a piece recounting Bruce Cutler’s Opening Arguments in your case, Kelly Green posted vicious and obscene comments about Bruce Cutler, an individual “it” evidently hates.  I’ve captured all of this evidence.  The Darwin Exception was essentially devoted to trashing and undermining you.  I personally feel it might have been a means with which to communicate with jurors.  I’ve drawn the same conclusion about Sprocket’s blog.  Actually, Sprocket, Blaine, and many others, were posting on the Darwin Exception.  I have now concluded that these blogs were all coordinated with your trial.  I have also been targeted by all of these parties.  

Many of these individuals, including Susanne Walsh, have also targeted Paulette.  These parties are all defending Leonard Cohen, arguing his legal positions, and slandering me and now Paulette.  As I advised you previously, I started a Facebook page devoted to you, your trial, and the fact that you are innocent.  Susanne Walsh had Facebook remove the page.  When it was removed, you literally had hundreds of friends. 

As I’ve said, while publicly attacking and slandering me, Gianelli, Walsh, and others, relentlessly emailed me, terrorized my sons, contacted my elderly parents, harassed my sister, brother-in-law, friends, and everyone in my life.  They also transmitted their slanderous, false statements to government agencies such as IRS, FBI, and DOJ.  I refuted these email and internet attacks which were frequently copied to my sons, family members, and friends.  The harassment and slander generally related to Leonard Cohen, IRS, and you.  This scenario, which may very well have been intentionally designed, would ultimately lead to my being falsely arrested and imprisoned by the City Attorney of Los Angeles.  I was charged with violating a “domestic violence” order I was unaware of as well as annoying Leonard Cohen over his own conduct.  That would include his stories about you.  As I’ve said, Mick Brown informed me that he reviewed your Grand Jury transcripts and Cohen’s statements or testimony was presented to them.  I contacted the Grand Jury’s legal adviser who was unable to determine what witness presented these statements.  She advised me to contact your appellate attorneys.  Leonard Cohen advised me for approximately 20 years that you never held a gun on him and his statements to the media over the years were good rock ‘n roll stories.  I have heard countless, contradictory versions of his stories about you and believe none of them.  The prosecutor during my show trial, a woman who lied about everything to the jurors, elicited testimony from Cohen about you and the so called “gun” incident using an email I sent Dennis Riordan.  I informed Mr. Riordan that Cohen personally told me for twenty years that you never held a gun on him.  The prosecutor asked Cohen to review the email and confirm that he was a recipient.  He testified that he was and this allowed the prosecutor to elicit testimony about you and the infamous bullshit gun incident.  On cross-examination, Cohen confirmed that he was not a recipient.  He perjured himself on the stand about many things.  Alan Jackson and Steve Cooley were constant themes throughout my trial and Cooley literally had an investigator in the courtroom.  I assumed this was meant to intimidate me.  

Leonard Cohen has used baseless, fraudulent restraining orders to discredit and undermine me.  These courts hand them out like most people hand out Halloween candy.  LA Superior Court, without service or notice, assigned me a dating relationship with Cohen – who sexually harassed, sexually assaulted, and exposed his penis to me for years.  On March 23, 2012, at a so-called hearing prior to my trial, Cohen testified that we were in a purely business relationship and I never stole from him – just his peace of mind.  He was clearly not coached over those issues for that hearing and it obviously posed a problem for the prosecution which consisted of members of the City Attorney’s “Family Violence Unit.”  One cannot make this insanity up.  LA Superior Court, of course, has no remedies.  They continue to lie and have now exposed me to an extortionate, baseless lawsuit that involves Gianelli as I will explain below.  During my 2012 trial, Steve Cooley publicly aligned himself with Leonard Cohen.  Please keep in mind that at one point Cohen was represented by former DA Ira Reiner.  This may have led to the “anonymous tip” about our friendship being left for the DA’s office.  My public defender, who was nauseated, saw Cohen, Cooley’s investigator, and Cohen’s lawyers lunching together during my trial.  I think that sums things up.    My public defender concluded as follows:  the City Attorney was attempting to sabotage IRS (over Cohen), discredit me, the DA did not want your verdict overturned, and there may have been a juror plant on my jury.  I am aware that there may have been juror misconduct related to your trials as well.  My appellate attorney, who would end up being harassed by Gianelli and Walsh for over a year, wrote that he viewed my trial as an IRS matter that demanded an investigation.  Other conduct I evidently annoyed Cohen over was Rutger’s Whole Foods incident (where his fingers were ripped off), Ray’s custody matter (coordinated by Lindsey, Cohen, Kory, and possibly others), Bob Dylan and Paul Shaffer (whom I phoned to ask if there was some way they could help), federal tax matters, and some form of insanity with respect to IRS required tax and corporate information the prosecutor and her witnesses argued I was in possession of.  I was not.  This was the cornerstone of their set up trial and the jurors ultimately advised my lawyers that they wanted to hear from IRS so they understood perfectly well that one of the crucial issues related to my requests for tax and corporate information.  I am still not in possession of them and will now be forced to sue Cohen’s estate.  

Beginning in approximately November 2012, Gianelli and Walsh would begin emailing my so-called prosecutor, Sandra Jo Streeter.  Streeter is enamored of Cooley and Cohen.  In fact, she was gushing about them.  During my trial, she informed the jurors that Cooley elected not to prosecute Cohen.  I had filed a complaint with their Major Fraud Unit and was unaware that Pat Dixon and Alan Jackson ran that unit.  From my perspective, there may very well have been a quid pro quo that led to Cohen taking the stand and testifying about you and a gun.  It is important to note that my trial took place during the DA’s election campaign, both Alan Jackson and City Attorney Carmen Trutanich ran for that office, and David Mamet had recently informed the news media that he believed you were railroaded and was producing a film about your case.  Paulette actually gave me a copy of a ballot related to this election campaign and you were on it.  In other words, the powers that be in Los Angeles used you to advance their careers.  By the Spring of 2013, Streeter would use Gianelli’s communications, and my refutations, to retaliate against me.  Rutger, Ray, my sister, and Paulette were continuously harassed by the emails Gianelli and Walsh sent to the City Attorney. They frequently copied the City Attorney’s office and Investigator William Frayeh, who investigated elements of your case, on their utterly insane email communications.  

As it would turn out, Gianelli communicated extensively with Cohen’s lawyers, Robert Kory and Michelle Rice.  Not that long ago, they began what can only be described as an utterly moronic cover-your-ass operation.  

Paulette has been relentlessly harassed, stalked, threatened, and intimidated.  As you know, in June 2013, Paulette invited me to stay with her.  As of March 2013, Gianelli had begun harassing her.  Paulette sent me an email that confirmed what you told her after Clarkson’s death at your home.  Clarkson apparently advised you that “this is what I can do to your cock” before shooting herself.  I posted that email on my blog and Gianelli swooped in on Paulette.  

Since I spoke with you at dinner following the Clarkson incident, I don’t need anyone – least of all criminals stalking and harassing me and others – telling me what happened.  I distinctly recall asking you whether or not you killed this woman and your advising me that she shot herself and going into great detail about what happened.  I also recall your advising me that the gun was not yours.  

In or around February 2015, Paulette and I participated in interviews with a small internet radio program, Truth Sentinel.  Ann Diamond participated as well.  The interviews were broken down into two segments:  one about you and your case and one about Leonard Cohen and what actually unfolded between us.  Ann Diamond discussed her history with Cohen and his so-called involvement in CIA’s MK Ultra Program.  I have no knowledge of his involvement in any such program but Cohen personally advised me that he was a participant in this program.  Immediately after our interviews were posted online, which ultimately concluded that you were innocent and Cohen may very well have been guilty, Stephen Gianelli descended.  He continues to slander me and Ann Diamond on that site.  The issues he is slandering me over primarily relate to Leonard Cohen and his fraudulent legal matters that involve me.  

Stephen Gianelli also writes third parties slandering me and Paulette.  One of those individuals is a gentleman by the name of Alan Hootnick who believes you are innocent.  At some point, not too long ago, Gianelli began emailing Alan Hootnick and me.  He attempted to elicit information about Paulette and my communications with you and your attorneys.  Gianelli informed us that he has someone who communicates with you regularly.  He advised us that you and I are not friends.  Gianelli also wrote that his associate read you an entirely slanderous article he wrote about me which also slandered Paulette Brandt.  It is beyond obvious that Gianelli is not only an unofficial member of Leonard Cohen’s legal team but affiliated with your prosecution.  At some point on the Truth Sentinel site, where Paulette and my interviews appeared, Gianelli posted that the gun Clarkson used to shoot herself was yours and stated that Clarkson’s DNA was not on the ammunition.  This is a man that has followed every element of your trial so it is my personal opinion that he made these remarks to elicit information from people about your appeal.  Your lawyers argued that the gun was not yours, Bruce Cutler advised Mick Brown that the gun was not yours, and your appeal brief clearly confirmed that Clarkson’s DNA was on the ammunition.  No one who supports you would argue these issues in the manner in which Gianelli did.  

Another point of interest is the fact that Gary [Spector] recently posted online that he believes you are guilty because you never told him you were innocent.  Louis [Spector] posted that you had guns, such as the Colt .38, in your Beverly Hills home and commented that the gun Clarkson used to shoot herself was “registered to someone who used to work” for you.  I have been advised by a very reliable source that this gun belonged to your former employee Michelle Blaine.  She evidently planted the gun in the drawer the night Clarkson shot herself and told Clarkson to use it in the “routine” she always used on her escort clients.  I believe another investigator has gathered admissible evidence and am praying that it finds the light of day.
I am wondering if you have ever previously had any types of dealings with Gianelli.  This man should absolutely be investigated.  

By the way, I spoke to Stephen Machat who confirmed with Sony that Leonard Cohen sold your master tapes (Death of a Ladies’ Man) to them.  Stephen, who negotiated the contracts related to that album, also confirmed that you owned the masters, all royalties were to be paid directly to you, and Cohen’s accounts with CBS/Sony were not to be recouped using any income from this album.  As you will recall, I called Sony personally about your interest in this album, and the fact that Cohen was receiving all royalty income, sometime after Marty’s death.  

I was wondering if you would be willing to provide me with a declaration about Leonard Cohen, his lies about you over the years, the theft of your master tapes and royalties, as well as any information you have with respect to his tax history.  I do recall all your faxes over the years “joking” about Leonard Cohen and his tax matters.  It does appear that he has a history of tax evasion, in the United States and Canada, dating back to 1970 when he obtained his first green card.  That might explain the lengths he has gone to destroy my life, target my sons and elderly parents, and – due to his good rock ‘n roll gun stories about you – it might even explain why the District Attorney and City Attorney of Los Angeles publicly aligned themselves with him and targeted me.  

I’ve heard that you have experienced difficulties with your mail.  Therefore, I’ve sent copies of this letter to Bruce Cutler, Donald Horgan, Dennis Riordan, Charles Sevilla, and, Doron Weinberg.  I believe the information I am sending you relates to your trial, Leonard Cohen, and Paulette and my utterly inane situations. 

I hope your health has improved and pray for you constantly.
