More details about the couple’s fight
TMZ got hold of the police affidavit of the case. The incident happened on Sunday 23 February which was the day of the exchange of custody of their two children. The coupe’s divorce is still under progress and there is a lot of bitterness between them on it.
Michael and Jules had a previous argument on phone regarding child support payments. Due to it, Michael felt threatened by Jules. Therefore, he started recording the meet. Michael told the police that when Jules came out of the car, she had a baseball bat with her which she pulled out from the backseat. But she then placed it on the ground.
Later, Jules smacked Michael in anger and punched and scratched him on the face. Michael had a small scratch on his nose and a reddish mark on his left cheek.
She appeared on 24 and 25 February in court and her arraignment is on 16 March 2020. Michael’s attorney, Morghan Richardson said:
“This is a serious situation reflecting Ms. Wainstein’s increasingly reckless behavior that unfortunately took place in front of the kids. The children were released to Michael’s custody yesterday and he is most concerned about protecting them.”
Court has given Michael a protective order against Jules.
Jules and Michael-the relationship
Jules and Michael were married in 2008. Their married life lasted for 8 years and they had two kids-Jagger and Rio. She had appeared on season 8 of the show RHONY. At that time she had talked about her divorce. This was in 2016.
Later, on 18 July 2019, she was on Life After Bravo video series.
At that time, she said:
“Until my divorce is over, I’m temporarily living in Boca [in Florida] at my parents, which actually happened to be a nice thing because unfortunately my father just recently passed away. So we got to spend the last year with him, which we wouldn’t have spent as much time if we were living in New York. So we’ll be there until things settle, and then hopefully we’ll move back soon.”
