UPDATE, NOV. 28, 5:11 P.M.: An attorney who says she represents David F. Klassen contacted the Weekly to counter accusations her client created a website to discredit a transgender singer who performs under the name Bralalalala.

The lawyer, Yolanda Marsili of Newport Beach, says that neither she nor Klassen, an art director for Hollywood movies such as Spider-Man 3, "owns" the site Bralalala.com.

Marsili's claim is now noted in the original version of this post below.

Bralalala.com claims that a lawsuit Bralalalala brought, under the name Brooke Skiles, in Orange County Superior Court against Klassen and Marsili is without merit. The site goes on to paint the accuser as a scam artist. 

ORIGINAL POST, NOV. 23, 9:12 A.M.: A confusing case involving a transgender singer who alleges she was sexually assaulted and a Hollywood art director who accuses her of being a scam artist is playing out in Orange County Superior Court.

The art director is David F. Klassen, whose credits include Iron Man, Spider-Man 3 and next year's much-anticipated The Amazing Spider-Man. His accuser performs as Bralalalala, but she and/or he goes by several names and either sexuality to hear Klassen tell it.

Klassen and Bralalalala do not even agree on the incident that started their legal tug-of-war. Here is the transgender artist's version:

She responded online to a craigslist ad for a "strictly platonic" friend placed by Klassen's girlfriend, Yolanda Marsili. Bralalalala met Marsili at her Newport Beach home where they were to go out with Marsili's other friends to a dance club. But those other friends never showed up. What Barlalalala did not know was Marsili shared the home with Klassen, who became infatuated after his girlfriend showed him the transgender singer's Myspace page. Klassen would go on to sexually assault Bralalalala, who says she filed a report with Newport Beach police.

Klassen claims that never happened, that he met who was presented to him as a woman but later learned was a transgender prostitute. The art director would go on to [Writer's note--Klassen's attorney denies her client created the website, as previously reported here.] A website warns others about Bralalalala, alias "Bra, Brant Skiles, Brant Brooke Skiles, Brooke Skiles, Brook Skiles, Brent Skiles, Brant Skiles, Brooke Jason Skiles, Brant J Skiles, Brant Jason Skiles, Jeanne Jorgenson, Erala Jorgensen, Erica Jorgensen, Emily Dickinson, Cindy, Stacy, Jenny, Heather and who knows how many others."

According to the site--which Bralalalala and some transgender advocates have labeled "a hate site"--the singer has used the aliases to extort money out of everyone from college students to the producers of the LA Music Awards. But most victims reside in wealthy SoCal enclaves like Newport Beach, claims the site, which includes photos of Bralalalala as a man, links to the legal paper trail the alleged scammer has created and personal ads and provocative photos Bralalalala's online detractor says are used to lure marks.

The site claims Newport Beach Police and the district attorney's office dropped criminal investigations into whatever happened at Klassen's home. His attorney filed motions to get Bralalalala's lawsuit--filed under the name Brooke Skiles--tossed and to countersue alleging extortion. A hearing to consider a dismissal is set for Monday.

Skiles, who created her own blog to rebuff the website (title: "A Tansgender Woman Does Not Mean Whore"), claims those motions have been denied, that her lawsuit still has legs and that cops and prosecutors are still investigating the art director.

How ever this all plays out, it could make a great movie.

so this director is now taking to the public suddenly in twitter as this case continues to progress 

@fredricodude expressing his strong support for Romney and throwing in some familiar insults on Bralalalala "extortionist, criminal, pathological liar, user.."  These references by the way sound very simillar to the terms used on the alleged libel ste he denied making in this article via his attorney.

  I don't understand this story. Klassen says he thought the singer was a woman but later found out she is a transgender woman who is a prosititute but also that no incident of sex occurred.So, how and when did he decide she was a prostitute? Why did he care since no incident occurred? I must be missing something here.

clearly bralalala is hovering over this site and making false comments. some being very personal and a dead giveaway "Court cross complaint says they knew she was trans before they invited her. Did they lie to the press in the interview?" who cares about these RETARDED questions other than the plaintif ,skiles

Alos of note, David Klassen's sworn statement signed in Bralalalala's court answer to "malicious prosecution," says specifically that Klassen agrees with the statements made on www.bralalala.com

  The cross complaint in the action signed by Marsili, admits to making the website www.bralalala.com set out as attached in the complaint . English reads swell. It should also be noted the defense Klassen and Marsili used to the libel charge was "truth" and "first amendment," not a denial of making the site. The wording in the documents filed by Marsili reads exactly as the website.

Court cross complaint says they knew she was trans before they invited her. Did they lie to the press in the interview?

I read they want to suppress all police evidence in this case. I wonder what they told police they want to hide.

I read online Bralalalala was called "sexpot we love," by the world's largest selling lesbian magazine Curve in print. I wonder what Klassen's motive in having her over really was if all the things he claims on his site about her he really thinks is true? I also read she weights a little over 100 pounds and is no taller or bigger than the average woman.

how can you mistake that thing for a woman..his face is looks like it was carved out stone.a blind man could see that.  if he was upfront about his sexuallity there would'nt have been an altercation clearly this TV had an alterior motive. Guys size 13 high heels are always a dead give away.

    Hearing on Monday seems to be about sanctions or dismissal for Klassen for a no show at the last hearing on his part. He is ordered to appear in person Monday with his attorney  girlfriend.
