REEL LIFE Erin Brockovich was extorted by her boyfriend “George” in real life

In the 2000 movie Erin Brockovich, the main character finds love with a biker neighbor named George who, honestly, had a number of red flags (like his eagerness to take care of her young kids as a stranger.) In real life, their love didn’t have a happy ending. The man who the movie love interest was based on, Jorg Halaby, joined forces with her ex-husband Shawn Brown to try to extort money from her boss at the time: lawyer Ed Masry.
