    I feel compelled to point out that 1+1 does not always equal 2.  I think that what most likely happened was that the files were hidden exactly for the reason stated. Any clerk of any county court will tell you that files belonging to celebrities have a tendency to "disappear," as in being given or sold to political operatives or tabloid journalists.  I suggest very strongly that once, long ago, someone went looking for these records for whatever reason, did not find them where they were supposed to be, then assumed - ASSUMED - they had been sealed. They told someone else some other day, and the story perpetuated, not out of malice but just because that is what someone thought.  Again, I know these people and this is very likely what happened.
