John Stamos Slams Convicted Extortionists for Lying at Trial


John Stamos


The 'ER' actor was shocked when learning that Allison Coss and Scott Sippola made fake stories to defend themselves, insisting 'They lied about everything from a pregnancy to compromising photos.'

Actor John Stamos has spoken out after a couple was convicted of attempting to extort money from him, insisting he is "shocked" over allegations made about him during the trial. Allison Coss and Scott Sippola were arrested in December 2009 after they allegedly threatened to release snaps of the actor with cocaine and strippers unless he handed over $680,000 (453,000 pound sterling).

On Thursday, July 15, Coss, 24, and Sippola, 31, were found guilty of conspiracy and using emails to threaten a person's reputation. The "ER" star maintains he did not use cocaine or act inappropriately, and he has now slammed Coss and Sippola for fabricating "slanderous allegations" about him.

In a post on his Twitter.com account on Friday, July 16, Stamos writes, "I am shocked and perplexed how individuals could fabricate so many false stories in an effort to defend a crime. I agreed to be a witness for a federal criminal prosecution and endured countless false accusations about my behavior and appropriateness. The allegations made regarding an inappropriate relationship are completely untrue. These slanderous allegations to smear my reputation were part of their defense to redirect attention away from the federal crime of extortion."

"There was no hot tub, no drugs, no nudity and nothing sexual in nature involved in my friendship with this woman. They lied about everything from a pregnancy to compromising photos." Coss and Sippola, who are awaiting sentencing, both face five years in prison.
