Attorney Gloria Allred and her client Heather Kerr speak during a press conference regarding the sexual assault allegations that have been brought against Harvey Weinstein and what he told Kerr about what she had to do to get a job in Hollywood at Allred’s office on October 20 in Los Angeles, California.

One of the five Roy Moore sexual misconduct accusers has admitted that she added words to a notable signature in her high school yearbook by the Senate candidate.

Beverly Young Nelson, who accused Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was a teenager, said on Good Morning America that she added words to the inscription she claims Moore wrote in her 1977 yearbook.

“I had wrote under it where it happened at,” she said on the morning talk show. “I want to make this straight.”

The yearbook inscription was used as evidence against Moore when she held a press conference alongside attorney Gloria Allred telling her relationship with Moore.

Allred is representing her and her accusations, and she said hours after Nelson’s GMA interview that the additions were made “to remind herself of who Roy Moore was, and where and when (Moore) signed her yearbook.”

Allred is a high-profile attorney who’s represented clients in controversial cases, especially involving the protection of women’s rights.

In 2012, Allred’s reported net worth was around $20 million, according to the TheRichest.com.

Allred has been married twice, but is currently single. She had a daughter with her first husband and has two grandchildren.

During an October interview with The Wrap, Gloria commented on her daughter’s decision to represent Weinstein, saying she would have decided against being his legal counsel.

“Had I been asked by Mr. Weinstein to represent him, I would have declined, because I do not represent individuals accused of sex harassment,” she said during the interview. “I only represent those who allege that they are victims of sexual harassment.”

Allred also said that she wouldn’t be afraid to face Bloom in court, with her representing some of Weinstein’s accusers.

“While I would not represent Mr. Weinstein, I would consider representing anyone who accused Mr. Weinstein of sexual harassment, even if it meant that my daughter was the opposing counsel,” Allred said in her statement.

Bloom ended up stepping down as Weinstein’s attorney just days after she signed on.

There was a major court battle and dispute in her divorce to William Allred. A 1992 article in The Los Angeles Times William appealed their divorce judgement, which left him owing more than $4 million to her.

In court, the two didn’t speak to each other, exchanging “little more than glances” at a bankruptcy hearing.

“It’s the height of hypocrisy for her to do this,” William said to The Times. “I put her through law school, and now she’s going to take everything I ever earned…I don’t think feminists would approve of that. Feminists believe in equal rights for men and women.”

William was convicted in 1987 on charges of conspiring to defraud the government when he sold counterfeit aircraft parts through his company. He maintained his innocence of any criminal wrongdoing.
