Teresa Giudice’s lawyer James Leonard Jr. is putting a stop to all of the false reports about client while she is away. He is also threatening legal action against “bogus stories” about Teresa that are damaging her name.
“The misinformation being published by various media outlets regarding my client and the details of her incarceration are blatantly false,” he tells E! News. “Whoever is buying these bogus stories, you’re wasting your money; whoever is reading them, you’re reading pure fiction; and whoever is selling them, legal action will be taken.”
Some of the newest reports have alleged that Teresa is going through withdrawal in prison due to an alleged prescription pill addiction. But her attorney states that this couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, Giudice is doing well inside of Danbury.
“The reality is that Teresa is acclimating well to her current surroundings and she is keeping to herself. She has told me repeatedly that she is doing fine and that she is appreciative of the support she has gotten from her fans,” he continues. “She asks everyone to respect her privacy and that of her family during the coming weeks and months and she looks forward to being reunited with Joe and her girls.”
Another source tells the site the real reason Teresa didn’t receive a visit from Joe and her daughters this past weekend.
“There was an issue getting [Joe] approved,” a source shared. “Because he’s a co-defendant in Teresa’s case, extra steps have to be taken to get him approved to visit her. The process is in the works but it wasn’t done in time for last weekend.”
“She’s been getting letters and hearing what’s been out there,” the source said. “What’s sad is that a few inmates have clearly been leaking stories about her.”
