Just when you thought the Rick Pitino-Karen Sypher story might quiet down a bit, there’s this.
ESPN’s Pat Forde has a story, published at 6 tonight, that shows that despite warnings from her attorney and common sense, Karen Sypher can’t keep from talking about her ordeal. She spent 30 minutes on the phone and two hours at a Starbucks with Forde on Tuesday.
Among the highlights from the story, this reference to attorney Thomas Clay:
Karen Sypher told ESPN.com that Clay quit as her attorney Tuesday because his client would not stop publicly airing her grievances against Pitino, and, to a lesser extent, grievances against her own husband. Clay said Wednesday that he does still represent Karen Sypher, at least as of the time of the phone call.
On a recent night, the FBI questioned Sypher for four hours at a local hotel. It also questioned her 19-year-old son and her husband, Tim Sypher.
There are plenty of juicy quotes from both Sypher and Judy Cunigan, her mother, but I would choose this one as the juiciest, from Cunigan:
“Tim is so far in Rick’s pockets and up his butt, you’d be amazed. Tim’s always chose Rick over Karen. That’s the way their marriage has been.”
There’s plenty more, so you ought to just to read the story from Forde.
