Two Bay Area attorneys who represent Barry Bonds(L), the San Francisco Giant who's baseball's all-time home run king, issued a statement Friday saying they're unhappy with steroid allegations made against Bonds by his former girlfriend Kimberly Bell(R) in Playboymagazine.

In the November issue of Playboy, Bell describes a "romance gone bad." She said steroids turned the kind man she met in 1994, into "a sudden, sociopathic personality." She describes his angry mood swings and hostile threats. Furthermore, Bonds' ex-mistress alleges the National League's most valuable player was not necessarily an "MVP in the bedroom."

Attroney Todd Schneider, who's based in San Francisco, said, "We had hoped that Ms. Bell would adhere to basic notions of truth and common decency in her comments to Playboy. Obviously we were wrong."

"It is obvious that the lure of a lucrative payday from Playboy magazine has driven Ms. Bell to make these unfounded, unsubstantiated and untrue statements," added John Burris, another lawyer based in Oakland. "Unfortunately, Ms. Bell has simply joined the many others who have cashed in by fabricating stories about Barry Bonds."

Schneider and Burris didn't say in their statement if they're planning to sue Bell. [Quoted from CBS 5]
