Yikes, just when you think Jules Wainstein’s recent arrest for alleged domestic battery couldn’t get any uglier it does.
According to Page Six, on March 3, 2020, Michael asked a judge to force Jules to supply a lock of her hair to be tested after she allegedly attacked him in Boca Raton, FL.
The alleged altercation went down in a grocery store parking lot as the former couple was engaging in a custody exchange of their two children.
Jules allegedly licked Michael’s car window before allegedly hitting the back of his car with a baseball bat. The altercation didn’t stop there, according to a police report Jules then allegedly punched her ex-husband in the face.
Michael received a protective order against Jules following her arrest.
Now, Michael wants Jules drug tested as he believes she was under the influence during the alleged attack. While Michael thinks Jules was simply intoxicated he’s not ruling the fact that she may have been under the influence of prescription drugs as well.
Apparently, Michael wants Jules’ hair tested to prove she’s abusing drugs. Per TMZ, Michael believes Jules poses a risk to him and their two kids. Michael also claims that one of his children told him that they saw Jules taking pills before her mini-rampage during their custody exchange.
He also claims that Jules has a history of dependency issues on prescription drugs including but not limited to Adderall. Michael also says that years ago in NYC, Jules came home high on cocaine and repeatedly punched him in the face.
Michael only brings all this up out of concern for Jules. He’s hoping that the courts will step in and send her treatment to get the help she needs.
“This is an evolving legal matter that will be addressed by the Florida Courts,” Michael’s attorney, Morghan Richardson, told Page Six. “Michael is a devoted father and he is focused on taking care of the kids full time right now.”
“Ms. Wainstein’s plea is contrary to what she admitted to police,” Richardson added. “It is time for her to step up and address her problem. Michael only wants her to get the help that she needs.”
Jules, on the other hand, has pleaded not guilty and is due back in court on March 16.
This is all so sad. I hope if Jules is struggling she gets the help she needs, but I also don’t trust or believe Michael at all. Michael is not a good guy IMO but hopefully, he’s being truthful and is looking out for Jules’ best interest.
