CASEY Greenfield has managed to stay out of the spotlight following the drama after Jeffrey Toobin was fired from the New Yorker.
Greenfield allegedly had a secret affair for over a decade with the disgraced former New Yorker staff writer Jeffrey Toobin, ending with a love child back in 2008.
Who is Casey Greenfield?
Casey Greenfield is an American attorney and Yale Law School graduate who started her own firm, Casey Greenfield PC, in 2015.
Greenfield made headlines back in 2009 after reports claimed she was pregnant with Jeffrey Toobin's baby. He is a legal analyst for CNN.
Sources told the Daily News back in 2010 that their alleged affair began when the young lawyer fell for the married Toobin, now 62, when she was in her 20s.

Who is Casey Greenfield and when did she have a child with Jeffrey Toobin?
"Jeff and Casey saw each other off and on over the years," one source told the newspaper.
"She was married to someone else for two years. After her divorce, she started seeing Jeff again. He said he was going to leave his wife for her. But, by then, Casey had begun to distrust him. She suspected he had several other mistresses."
A 2012 New York Times piece on Greenfield's new practice at the time claims the lovers met in Condé Nast's New York City office when Greenfield worked as a fact-checker for Glamour while taking a break from law school.
They immediately began a secret relationship that reportedly lasted nearly a decade.

When Greenfield became pregnant with his child in 2008, Toobin allegedly offered her "money if she'd have an abortion," the Daily News reported.
He offered to pay for her to have another child later on through a sperm donor, according to the Daily News.
"When Casey wouldn't have an abortion, Jeff told her she was going to regret it, that she shouldn't expect any help from him," claimed another source.
When did she have a child with Jeffrey Toobin?
Greenfield gave birth to her child, Rory, back in 2009.
She underwent a risky DNA test while pregnant, to prove Toobin was the father.
A Manhattan Family Court judge ordered Toobin to pay child support, after the test results confirmed he was the father, according to the newspaper.
But when he refused to pay up the full amount, Greenfield's lawyer threatened to tell his employers and garnish his way, prompting Toobin to pay up.
Why was Toobin fired from the New Yorker?
In October of 2020, Toobin made headlines for exposing himself and masturbating while on a Zoom call between New Yorker colleagues and WNYC radio workers.
Toobin told outlet Vice in a statement: “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera.
"I apologize to my wife, family, friends, and co-workers.”
The paper suspended him following the incident and then fired him back in November 2020, however, CNN said he was "too good" to be fired from their network.
Did Toobin leave CNN?
Eight months after his Zoom incident, Toobin returned to CNN on June 10, 2021.
"I'm sorry to the people who read my work and who watched me on CNN who thought I was a better person than this. And so, you know, I got a lot to rebuild, but I feel very privileged and very lucky that I'm going to be able to try to do that," Toobin said to CNN's Alisyn Camerota on CNN Newsroom, following his return.
"I am trying to become the kind of person that people can trust again," he continued.
As part of his rehabilitation of himself, Toobin discussed therapy and public service such as working at a food bank to help better and humble himself.
However, Toobin made an announcement on Twitter on August 12, 2022, that he was leaving CNN.
His tweet stated: "Friends, I’ve decided that, after 20 years, I’m leaving @cnn after my vacation. Was great to spend my last day on air with pals Wolf, Anderson, and Don.
"Love all my former colleagues. Watch for my next book, about the Oklahoma City bombing, coming in 2023 from @simonandschuster"
