Ellen DeGeneres is taking a long weekend from taping her show after the controversy over her giving an adopted dog, Iggy, away to her hairdresser.
Meanwhile, the attorney for Mutts and Moms, the dog rescue agency that DeGeneres adopted from, spoke out on “The O’Reilly Factor” show.
Keith Fink, the attorney, said that Mutts and Moms did offer the hairdresser’s family to come in and file adoption papers for Iggy. But he said that DeGeneres refused and the family also refused to come in and fill out paperwork, and he has emails to prove it.
Fink further added that DeGeneres is trying to use her fame and power to get things done her way. He stated that DeGeneres did this “because of brash arrogance; and two, for her own aggrandizement.”
UPDATE: On Friday, Keith Fink said Iggy has been placed with a new family earlier this week. He stated Iggy is doing well, and the identity of the family will not be revealed to protect their privacy.
