(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- The ex-wife of Rudy Giuliani is suing him for more than $250,000 and is saying that he could spend time in jail if he doesn’t pay up.
The one-time personal lawyer for former President Donald Trump is being sued for $262,000 by his ex-wife Judith. The lawsuit was filed earlier this week in the state Supreme Court in New York.
Judith says in the suit that her ex-husband owes her that money, and that one check Giuliani wrote to her for $10,000 bounced “due to insufficient fund.”
Her lawsuit also says Giuliani owes her an additional $140,000 related to expenses at a condo they own in Florida, plus payments that are due to a housekeeper at that residence.
Judith’s lawyers say that Giuliana is in contempt of court for not paying what he owes their client. According to the court paperwork, her attorneys say directly to Giuliani:
“Your failure to appear in court may result in immediate arrest or imprisonment for contempt of court.”
After a 15-year marriage, Judith filed for divorce in 2018 from Giuliani. Dror Bikel, who serves as the attorney for Judith, said there was a settlement in the divorce, but details of that were kept private.
As Bikel explained about the situation to reporters this week:
“She reached out to him without the lawyers and they met privately … Judith wanted to do it on her own. She met with Rudy. He wrote the terms on a napkin. The next day, they were in court settling.”
Yet, the Giuliani divorce is now playing out in the public eye, as Judith is claiming she’s owed hundreds of thousands of dollars that her ex-husband hasn’t paid to date.
Giuliani keeps finding himself in the public eye for all the wrong reasons. Recently, he went viral because he was slapped on his back while he was campaigning in Staten Island for his son, Andrew, who was running for the Republican nomination for New York governor at the time.
The former mayor of New York City at the time said the slap felt like somebody had shot him. Several people and organizations, such as the Legal Aid Society, responded by accusing Giuliani of overdramatizing the events and also accused law enforcement of overreacting when it happened.
The Legal Aid Society at the time said Giuliani sustained “nothing remotely resembling physical injuries.” The group also said that Daniel Gill, the employee of the ShopRite supermarket who slapped him, “merely patted” Giuliani on the back so he could get his attention.
The non-profit law firm released a statement following the incident that read:
“Given Mr. Giuliani’s obsession with seeing his name in the press and his demonstrated propensity to distort the truth, we are happy to correct the record on exactly what occurred over the weekend on Staten Island.”
The New York Police Department arrested Gill, who is 39 years old, was arrested for hitting Giuliani on the back. He was charged with second-degree assault for hitting a senior citizen.
