In going after Perez, Angelina's lawyers cited a specific story (see below) that he posted. Perez doesn't try to argue that the story is true, only that he "believed it" when he published it. The lawyers did not send out blanket cease and desist letters. They went after specific instances when false or fabricated stories were printed and disseminated. If they have sent out "a lot" of letters it's because a lot of false stories have been printed.
So just to state the obvious, there is no comparison between this and the brouhaha over her lawyer's attempts to control the press before they had written anything for A Might Heart.
Judy Smith, her crisis manager, is working in tandem with the lawyers to smooth ruffled feathers like Perez'.
Speaking to KIIS FM's Kyle and Jackie O on Wednesday, the father-of-two confirmed that he had received a 'rude' letter from Angelina's lawyer regarding an article published on his site.The article claimed that Brad Pitt was 'wrecked' after Angelina refused to let him see his children since the divorce news broke.
'Is Angelina Jolie really going to sue me? Most likely not. They're just trying to intimidate me, bully me, threaten me,' said Perez.He continued: '[Angelina's] publicist revealed to me that the lawyers have been sending out a lot of aggressive letters demanding people to stop speaking about the Brangelina split,'
