Remember last month when the judge awarded Jules Wainstein $10,000 a month in spousal and child support and he poor mouthed the judge and said he didn’t have any money to support his children? Well, guess what? He’s not paying.
Jules was supposed to receive her first check on September 30th, a full three months after he filed for divorce. She received nothing. Today, TMZ reported that Jules is going back to the judge to ask him to find Michael in contempt. I don’t know how that works up there in NYC where the news that Jules was getting $10,000 a month was met with gasps and hand wringing over how she is possibly going to survive on $120,000 a year, but down here in the real world, judges send folks to the pokey for not following their court orders.
From the sounds of things is he not contributing to the marital home at all, nor is he paying the kids pricey tuition at The Come Whenever You Want To School For Jewish Boys. Jules has called 911 multiple times on Michael. Read about that here and here.
In September. when the judge handed down the order, Michael’s attorney told the judge that he did not have the resources to make the payments to support his children and their mother of his child from whom. His attorney also mentioned that all of his credit cards were frozen. This is problematic for Jules since she talked about using “his” credit card on RHONY last season.
Meanwhile, word on the mean streets of New York has been that Michael lives in a brownstone with his new lover, a therapist who was either friends with or treating Jules at the time they got together.
It’s crazy to me that every little move in this divorce is covered by TMZ. We’re not exactly talking Brad and Angelina here. Surprisingly, that Brangelina drama died down VERY quickly. At least for now.
