Al and Tipper Gore made moves to protect their multimillion dollar assets following claims he sexually assaulted a masseuse, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The former Vice President and his now-estranged wife transferred nine of their Carthage, Tennessee properties from their names into a Limited Liability Company just months after the unnamed woman made the accusations, the New York Post is reporting.
Gore was facing what could have been a potentially crippling lawsuit when the police complaint was lodged in January 2009.
And by making the transfer, completed on November 30th 2009, the Gores could potentially protect their homes and other assets from any legal claims.
The Gores' $8.8 million Montecito, CA estate, which they acquired last October, was purchased through a trust.
As previously reported, RadarOnline.com obtained audio recordings of the interview between a detective and the massage therapist making the claims against the Nobel Prize-winning Gore.
The woman spoke at great length about her hotel room encounter with Gore, who she branded a "‘crazed sex poodle."
She said, among other things, he groped her and forced her hand down his trousers.
Police have not brought any charges against Gore and the case is closed unless new evidence is brought to light.
