Family values MAGA guy Rudy Giuliani is being threatened with contempt of court because his ex-wife says he's been holding out on her for a staggering $262,000. That's a nice chunk of change. And Judith Giuliani sounds a bit off, too, since she can't hold someone in contempt of court. That's not how it works. Only a judge can do that.

Via Page Six:

In a sworn affidavit, Judith accuses Rudy of owing her $140,000 for their South Lake Drive, Palm Beach, property alone. The lux condo was listed on the market in 2019 for $3.3 million. It didn't sell, but Judith claims in the documents that Rudy "is required to pay me $200,000 regardless of whether or not the property has been sold" per the divorce agreement, and she claims that he's only given her $60,000.

She also says they are responsible for their own dues at a country club, and accuses Rudy of allegedly failing to "pay his half of the annual club membership dues." She claims that in the meantime, she's been forced to bail him out to the tune of $70,000. "I had no choice but to pay his share of the dues … in order to remain in good standing with the clubs," she says in court papers. And she wants the money back.

He's also supposed to pay up to $5,000 a month for her to have help, such as an assistant or housekeeper. But she claims in the docs that since last summer, Rudy "has made inconsistent and sporadic payments to me, including a $10,000 check in June 2021 that was returned due to insufficient funds." She says in the papers that he now owes $45,000 in back pay for the help.

According to Rudy's ex, to who he was married for 15 years (!), he has the money to pay her since he owns properties in New York City and Palm Beach, and it appears that he has "significant earnings from his media-related contracts and deals."

She doesn't want to wait. She wants the money "immediately," and with interest, warning, "Your failure to appear in court may result in immediate arrest or imprisonment for contempt of court."

Heh. Rich people's problems. I was kind of hoping to win that $1 billion lottery. I did, actually. I won. It was RIGGED!
