Skip to comments.Baby drama! CNN star Jeffrey Toobin offered Casey Greenfield money for abortion: sources

Sunday could be a bittersweet first Mother's Day for Casey Greenfield.
Greenfield is a pretty, ginger-haired, Yale-educated lawyer and writer who last March gave birth to a love child. The baby's father is married CNN star and best-selling New Yorker writer Jeffrey Toobin. (Casey's father is esteemed political pundit Jeff Greenfield.) Ever since we broke the news of her pregnancy, Casey has remained silent about the baby drama. But now some of her friends are fed up with what they claim is less-than-gallant behavior on Toobin's part.
Greenfield, now 36, was in her 20s when she fell for Toobin, now 49, even though he was wed to Amy McIntosh, the Harvard sweetheart he'd married in 1986 and who gave him two children.
"Jeff and Casey saw each other off and on over the years," says one source. "She was married to someone else for two years. After her divorce, she started seeing Jeff again. He said he was going to leave his wife for her. But, by then, Casey had begun to distrust him. She suspected he had several other mistresses."
In 2008, when Greenfield became pregnant, and when she told Toobin the news, he offered her "money if she'd have an abortion," says a source. He also allegedly offered to pay for her to have another child later via a sperm donor.
"When Casey wouldn't have an abortion, Jeff told her she was going to regret it, that she shouldn't expect any help from him," claims another source.
Greenfield underwent a risky DNA test while pregnant, but Toobin didn't provide his sample and stopped talking to her, according to sources. On the day she gave birth, Greenfield e-mailed Toobin, inviting him to meet his son, Rory. A source says Toobin didn't reply.
Toobin ultimately cooperated with a DNA test that proved he was Rory's dad. In February, a Manhattan Family Court judge ordered him to pay child support. When he refused to pay the full amount, say sources, Greenfield's lawyer threatened to notify his employers and garnish his wages; Toobin then paid up.
Toobin now sees the 13-month-old lookalike heir. "His wife, Amy, comes with them to the park," says a source. He's said to have asked to spend every other weekend with Rory.
"Casey isn't convinced he really wants to serve as a dad," says a friend. "It may be legal maneuvering."
Attorneys for Toobin and Greenfield didn't respond to requests for comment.
"It's been a hard couple of years for Casey," says a friend. "She's a single mom. But her family couldn't be more supportive. The baby is such a joy for everyone."

Well, here’s what we’ve heard: while we still don’t know who the “well-known media figure” at the center of this is, nor what she said to her, specifically, we have heard from a tipster who asked to remain anonymous that multiple women alleged Toobin was into...
...anal sex and fisting, and had a bit of what could be deemed an “anal fixation,” though nobody reported any allegations of “rimming” or “salad tossing” or whatever you’re going to call it that will help me not explain exactly how that works. Specifics! Kind of.
Another post said he was “fetching”. Someone needs glasses.
Maybe they meant 'retching'. "R" and "F" are close on a keyboard.
Actually it said SHE was fetching but I think the glasses recommendation is still applicable.

VETERAN journos Michael Wolff and Jeffrey Toobin may want to pull an “Odd Couple” number and share an apartment. As we reported yesterday, the very married Wolff, 55, has clammed up over reports he’s been having an affair with gorgeous Victoria Floethe, 28, who works at his newser.com blog. Now, CNN legal correspondent and New Yorker writer Toobin, 48, who’s married, is staying mum about a report that he and sexy lawyer Casey Greenfield, 35, the Yale-educated daughter of CBS newsman Jeff Greenfield, have a relationship that “crossed the line.” Gawker.com pushed that claim further, saying that Casey is in an “advanced pregnancy” she’s been tracking on her Facebook profile. Calls to the usually accessible Toobin’s office and cellphone, and attempts to contact him through CNN and his literary agent, Esther “Lobster” Newberg, were fruitless. Casey did not return a message and e-mail to her law office or a message to her Facebook account. Jeff Greenfield didn’t return a call, either.
Who is Amy Mcintosh?
Amy McIntosh, the Education Departments chief talent officer, who helped develop the system, said that her team would continue to explore ways to monitor the effectiveness of the citys nearly 60,000 other public school teachers, but that for now the state tests were the only data on which to reliably base evaluations of them.

Amy McIntosh Must Come Clean!
Oh Amy McIntosh, the winner of the 2008 SBSB Unqualified To Be In Education award, when are you going to come clean? What not make public your lack of qualifications (here too!) and the conflict of interest you have with Time Warner in the case of your husband Jeffrey Toobin.
Why is this a big deal? In the upcoming Time Magazine, which just happens to be owned by Jeff’s employee, there is a love letter written about Washington DC school chief Syngman Rhee. Coincidently, Rhee happens to be one of Klein’s sycophants, and was recommended for the position by Der Chancellor himself. But that is not all there is from Time.
Jeff Toobin Updates Status to ‘Married’
CNN analyst, New Yorker writer, alleged affair-haver, and big Facebook fan Jeffrey Toobin recently updated his Facebook status to “married.” He’s actually been married for years!
Jeffrey Toobin Faces Off With Ex-Mistress Casey Greenfield In Love Child Court Case: NYDN
Toobin, 49, appeared in Manhattan Family Court along with rumored former lover Casey Greenfield, the 36-year-old daughter of CBS News analyst Jeff Greenfield. Greenfield gave birth to a baby boy last spring, and though she wouldn’t say then, the Daily News reports she now claims Toobin is the father.
From the Daily News:
The ex-lovers barely spoke in the waiting area before joining their lawyers behind closed doors with a court referee to hash out custody and money issues.
Toobin, who glumly sat several rows away from Casey Greenfield before the hearing, is said to have privately admitted to fathering the child, believed to have been born last summer, sources said.
A friend of Greenfield’s said the outspoken Toobin has resisted putting his name on the infant’s birth certificate and hasn’t given his former lover the child support she’s requested.
Toobin has two children with wife Amy McIntosh, who he married in 1986. The Daily News reports he was wearing his wedding ring in court.

Maybe they should teach sex education to Yale law students and see if that works, before they start in on impressionable teen-agers.
CNN legal news analyst, Harvard grad and married guy Jeffry Toobin is squaring off against Yale Law School graduate Casey Greenfield - the daughter of columnist Jeff Greenfield - over a paternity suit invovling their child. Things are chilly. She won’t let him see the child. He’s not paying legal support. His wife is nowhere to be heard from. Her father won’t return calls.
Isn’t sex education supposed to be the answer for our 14 year olds?
Didn’t these people get sex education before they went to Ivy League law schools?
Also, it’s interesting how poorly watched CNN must be inasumuch as this is the best kept scandal in media history.

Her behavior in no way excuses his behavior.
More on Jeff Toobin...sounds like he has a wild side.
I agree! It’s been rough for her? What about his wife and two other children?
Why, oh why do women fall for the old “I am going to leave my wife for you” baloney?
He is a cad, and Casey is a fool. Her son is the only innocent party in their sordid little mess.
...and a couple of six packs of good German beer (maybe a six pack of bock beer). Low alcohol domestic brews just won't do the trick.
Oh, I wasn’t even trying to excuse HIS behavior, but she was sexually involved with a man who she knew was married. It takes two to tango, as they say.
>>Her behavior in no way excuses his behavior.<<
That is correct.
But women used to have more respect for themselves than to sleep with a married guy and more respect for the ‘sisterhood’ than to sleep with a sister’s husband.
Sorry, we reap what we sow. I have NO sympathy for her. Only her child.
i’m a half century now..plus some...i’ve watched young women believe married men and their lies a long time...i'd wage at least 1/4-1/3 of women still unmarried after 28 or so will likely dally with a married man historically
i think women who really attach to married men don't want a full commitment sub consciously
folks generally go after what they end up with on purpose if they truly want it
you want a husband, family and picket fence truly then you will seek a proper more ready mate
you pick a married man and you probably have daddy didn't see me issues
i’ll lecture on men(dogs) later...this Toobin is so typical of lefties who project altruism but do nothing personally that comes at a real price
on a side note...a 70 yer old buddy of mine whose wife quit having sex 25 years ago ..for whatever reason...it wasn't physical....he tells me if you cheat then it should be with another married woman so she has something to lose too...his weekly lover of many years is a lawyer lady in a lawyer-lawyer marriage whose husband ignores her and travels all week...if Toobin had to cheat he should have used some discretion like that
for the record...I don't cheat...don't want to break my wife's heart nor screw up my kids...it's a character issue when it's boiled down....men are what they are by nature...God gives us a choice
