The divorce war between Real Housewives of New York alum, Jules Wainstein, and husband, Michael, is just getting messier.
It was revealed on Tuesday that the couple failed to file taxes between 2008-2015, and strangely invested money in a Hamptons home that they do not own.
The contentious split continues to play out in Manhattan Supreme Court, where Michael used a portion of the recently filed returns to argue against the payment amount ordered for child support and Jules’ apartment.
“My client has not been making the type of money they’ve sort of projected publicly,” Michael’s attorney, Morghan Richardson said. “The amount he’s paid the defendant in just the last few months eclipses his annual income.”
$25k from the sale a Mercedes and $12k for child support were included in Michael’s court ordered payments. The electricity was recently cut off at the apartment — and the former reality star’s attorney, Allan Mayefsky, countered that Michael’s income story is ever-shifting, and that he is responsible for the bill.
Justice Michael Katz is reportedly more focused on the couple’s tax returns, and if money had been concealed in the renovation of the Hamptons home. Despite the fact that the house is owned by an LLC — the couple claimed that they put a substantial amount work into the property. The house was featured in an episode of the Bravo series.
“Is this really a convenient place to park assets not being disclosed to creditors?” Katz asked. “That seems odd to me they would be renovating the house if they had no ownership.”
Jules reportedly covered her face with her hand, when Michael’s attorney spoke about the property.
