Remember that John Stamos extortion plot case from December? Well, it just got a tad more complicated.
A man and woman are currently on trial for allegedly attempting to extort “Full House” star John Stamos for $680,000. Last December, the pair was allegedly threatening to sell photos of Stamos to tabloids that, according to his reps, showed the actor posing with fans.
The two are now facing charges. On Monday, their defense attorney alleged that Stamos had a fling with the woman when she was a 17-year-old vacationing on Spring Break in 2004.
But Stamos’ rep released a statement from the“Full House” actor’s attorney to CNN that denies the allegations of sex with a teen entirely.
"The allegations made today in the courtroom by the defendants attorney during opening statements will not be proven because they are simply untrue,” Stamos’ lawyer said.
