Bernie’s camp denies report

Report: Trouble brewing for Bernie
Duh: Yanks knew about Giambi's steroid use

Following up on our morning report concerning potential legal trouble for Bernie Williams, we have a statement from the high-powered entertainment publicity firm Rogers & Cowan.

John Reilly, the V.P. of their music department, writes in with a denial:

Yesterday evening we learned of the filing of a complaint against Mr. Bernie Williams. The news has taken us all by surprise. On the night in question, Mr. Williams had gone out after accepting an invitation to be a guest performer with a local music act. Mr. Williams denies any wrongdoing and we feel that some published media reports today are inaccurate. At this time, Mr. Williams has been advised by his legal counsel, José M. Marxuach, to not make any further comments, inasmuch as we do not want to interfere with the ongoing investigation. We want to assure everyone that Mr. Williams will fully cooperate with the local authorities to have this matter clarified as soon as possible.

Bernie and the Puerto Rican WBC team is scheduled to take on Team USA on Saturday night. There’s no word yet on Bernie’s status for the game, but we’ll track this story as it develops.

    My mom ran into bernie at a restaurant a few months ago and he was happy to sign autographs and take pictures. She said he was such a nice guy. I don’t believe this story for a second.

      I agree, seems like some beeyotch looking for a trivial lawsuit, hoping to settle out of court for a few hundred grand.

    My guess is this all disappears in a week.

      as bernie will surely murk this harlequin.

    Bernie is at again, hiding behind his many PR advisors. Why can’t he just fess up and tell the truth instead of being such a drama queen?

    • Jeremy

      (Disclaimer: by PR, I meant public relations, not Puerto Rican.)

  • Miles Roche

    You’re quoting Reilly with this, but i’ve seen multiple other places attributing this quote to Bernie’s manager, Steve Fortunato. Just saying. . .

    • Ben K.

      The e-mail I personally received came from Reilly. At no point did the e-mail mention Steve Fortunato.

  • pounder

    I don’t believe a word of this womans story.

    I hope at least someone beat this women. She appears to be asking for it.
