Lawyers for a Michigan couple accused of trying to extort money from John Stamos say the actor’s private life should be fair game at trial next week. Prosecutors are asking a judge to bar questions about Stamos’ sex life and whether he had an intimate relationship with one of the defendants, Allison Coss. They say it’s irrelevant.

Coss and Scott Sippola are accused of demanding $680,000 from Stamos or they would sell photos of him with cocaine and strippers. Federal prosecutors say the photos never existed.

Sippola’s attorney, Sarah Henderson, said in a filing Thursday that prosecutors appear to be acting as Stamos’  “personal public relations committee” to save him from discomfort. She says she can’t offer a solid defense if testimony about the actor’s private life is excluded.
