A attorney for “My Unorthodox Life” star Julia Haart known as estranged spouse Silvio Scaglia “a batterer with income to burn” – as Scaglia’s attorney called her abuse allegations a “sham,” for the duration of a Friday courtroom hearing in their bitter break up.
Haart, 50 – a former member of the Orthodox Jewish neighborhood – submitted for divorce from Scaglia in February after he canned her as CEO from his firm Elite Earth Team.
The Netflix identity then secured a non permanent purchase of security in loved ones courtroom from Scaglia – which her lawyer Danielle Petitti argued for the duration of a Manhattan Supreme Courtroom online video listening to Friday need to be designed long lasting.
Petitti accused Scaglia – an Italian billionaire – of harassing and threatening her consumer by selecting a community relations rep for $50,000 a thirty day period to wage a media war in opposition to her and a substantial-profile prison protection attorney to “convince” prosecutors to bring prison rates in opposition to her.
“This is the habits of a batterer with revenue to melt away,” Petitti stated.
Petitti summarized testimony from Haart in the ongoing trial about a sequence of incidents when Scaglia allegedly berated and yelled at Haart – such as just one alleged January 2021 battle that culminated in Haart crying naked on the bathroom floor.
“All of the evidence demonstrates a sample of domestic violence and a pattern of control,” Petitti mentioned.
Scaglia’s conduct “caused her to working experience indications akin to a panic assault … brought on it to be tricky for the [Haart] – who equally functions concede is quite slender – to eat,” Petitti claimed. “This worry brought on her to eliminate her appetite and also exasperated her sleeplessness.”
But Scaglia’s law firm Robert Wallack accused Haart of earning up the abuse allegations saying she has no proof for any of them.
Wallack explained the untrue statements are an try to get back again at Scaglia for firing Haart and to assistance her secure an buy of security versus Scaglia so he couldn’t arrive back into their 10,000-square-foot downtown Manhattan triplex penthouse located at 70 Vestry Road.
“She is not a sufferer of abuse and she is not a target of domestic violence,” Wallack stated.
“This entire loved ones offense proceeding has been a sham,” Wallack argued. “It’s a pretense for her to get exceptional use of 70 Vestry.”
“There is zero corroborating evidence that any of [Haart’s] allegations at any time transpired,” Wallack billed.
