If Cohen killed the Don Trump Jr. affair story in 2013, how come Jr. isn't a client of his?

Separately, Mr. Cohen succeeded around 2013 in killing a story Us Weekly was preparing about an alleged affair between Donald Trump Jr., who had been a judge a year earlier on the television show, “Celebrity Apprentice,” and one of the contestants, Aubrey O’Day, a member of the singing duo Dumblonde, according to people familiar with the matter.

The magazine, then owned by Wenner Media, had what staffers believed to be a solid source on the alleged affair by the younger Mr. Trump and called the Trump Organization for comment, according to the people involved in the matter. They received a call back from Mr. Cohen, who threatened legal action and became so irate that they muted the call while he spoke, one of these people said.
...
The magazine’s staff didn’t believe it was a big story that would be worth a legal fight and had a good working relationship with the elder Mr. Trump on stories related to the TV show “The Apprentice,” so they dropped the story.

The story of the alleged affair was reported in entertainment media last month when Donald Trump Jr.’s wife filed for divorce; Mr. Cohen’s involvement in the Us Weekly story hasn’t previously been reported.

How can you call up a magazine, threaten legal action on behalf of a man, and not be his attorney? He's claiming his only 'true' clients are Donald Trump senior, Broidy, and Sean Hannity. Don Jr. is a grown man, not under the guardianship of his dad. Or is he saying he an attorney for the entire Trump Organization, and covering up Jr.'s affairs comes under the Organization?

1. Recent

My understanding is that Cohen identified his clients since 2017, although I'm not sure why it was time limited that way.

3. Looking at a story, they do seem to be talking about 2017 and 2018

Though you'd think 2016 would be highly relevant too, since that's when the Stormy Daniels pay-off was, and if it counted as an illegal campaign contribution, that would be in 2016 too.

2. Maybe the NY state prosecutors are only concerned with the clients Cohen had in 2017.

Wrong question, you ask perhaps.
Wise things, you still learned.

8. Mission Accomplished

Of course that was then, and junior has since accumulated even more troublesome baggage. Consequently, he requires the services of a real attorney.
