Reality TV couple finalized divorce and $50 million suit

Most celebrity divorces occur in California…but not always. Many of us remember the couple who crashed the White House dinner several years ago. The dinner crashers could also be seen on the Real Housewives of Washington D.C. The drama that ensued on the reality show also occurred after the show in their personal lives. It seems the drama may have reached a conclusion as the couple has finalized their divorce.

The husband filed for divorce in September 2011 after he realized his wife was having a relationship with another man. The wife admitted to having a relationship with another man and eventually left her husband for the other man. The discovery of the wife’s second relationship was discovered when she was reported missing by her then husband. It was later discovered by the FBI that the wife was actually voluntarily with the other man at the time she was reported missing. In the divorce papers filed by the husband, he claimed adultery and abandonment of marriage as reasons supporting the divorce.

The divorce also contained a twist that was worthy of reality television. The husband also sued the other man for his actions in relation to his divorce from his wife. In the lawsuit, the husband was seeking damages that totaled $50 million. To date, both the divorce and $50 million lawsuit were settled out of court, contained a confidentiality agreement and have been sealed by the presiding court. Divorces can become complicated and an experienced attorney can help a divorcing party reach a suitable outcome in a pending divorce case.
