Jules and Michael Wainstein’s ongoing divorce keeps getting uglier and uglier.
The estranged couple was back in court and got into a heated debate over their finances.
Michael is claiming that he too broke to pay for their children’s tuition or the families Uber bills. In fact, Michael is blaming his lack of funds on his soon-to-be ex-wife.
“Mr. Wainstein hasn’t paid $10,000 on September 30 of 2016 or $10,000 on Oct 28, 2016, for tuition for the children, utilities, Uber, transportation, nanny and weekly groceries,” Jules’ lawyer revealed to the judge. “No payments. He has not paid tuition. The Uber account shuts off and on. There is constant terminations of service for Time Warner Cable. Council stated in September on the record that Uber would be paid.”
Jules’ attorney went on to claim that Michael is not holding up to the agreement to pay certain bills but has the money to jet-set and host fancy dinners.
“We wonder how he’s paying his expenses, he seems to be doing okay, living fine, not getting kicked out,” he said “He’s traveling to Florida, hosting dinners. We believe he has another residence.”
However, Michael’s attorney fought back claiming that his client has paid all the bills the court ordered him to.
“The September order did order him to pay Uber and utilities. They were paid. There is no proof they weren’t paid. That was connected to his mother’s credit card.”
But it seems the judge wasn’t buying Michael’s explanation telling the court,“Allegedly he’s been to Florida twice, once to pursue a pilot’s license fee. I’m wondering if he’s curtailed his lifestyle and not complying with my orders. There is money available for certain things but not to comply. Why is he getting a pilot’s license, but not paying child support?”
The couple is due back in court February 14, 2017.
God could this divorce get any uglier. It’s insane that these two and dragging this divorce out. I don’t buy that Michael is broke at all. He needs to pay up in my opinion.
