"Certain things happened, and it almost destroyed our family. I tried to warn everyone. I tried to warn other mothers," she told Vanity Fair. "I tried to expose him for what he was years ago ? I hope you expose him, because the financial [scandal] is the least of his injustices."
That financial scandal landed Pearlman in prison in June. On the lam since the beginning of the year, Pearlman is accused of running a $300 million pyramid investing scheme. His victims allegedly include retirees who entrusted their life savings to the smooth-talking Pearlman. He was picked up by federal agents on the resort island of Bali, Indonesia.
"Our case has nothing to do with those other allegations," Fletcher Peacock, Pearlman's court-appointed attorney, told ABC News. "Mr. Pearlman obviously denies all of the allegations."
Following the Vanity Fair article, Pearlman denied the allegations to Radaronline's Tyler Gray.
"I think Vanity un-Fair sought out anyone who had a lawsuit or grudge with me or my company to help make disparaging remarks. They never sought any proof or checked for accuracy," Pearlman told Gray as reported in the New York Post.
"I've never owned a towel that could wrap all around me anyway," he said from his Orange County jail cell.
Pearlman is expected to be tried in March.
