[New York Post] Hollywood’s top divorce lawyer Laura Wasser was careful not to give up any secrets about her celebrity clients in her book, It Doesn’t Have To Be That Way: How To Divorce Without Destroying Your Family or Bankrupting Yourself.
A spiteful spouse agreed to let her husband keep their mansion, but stuffed seafood into the curtain rods before she left. When the husband and his new bride couldn’t get rid of the ensuing stench, they put the house on the market and sold it at a huge loss to the only bidder, the ex-wife, who quickly fixed the smelly problem. Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Patricia Arquette and Laura Dern would never be so vindictive.
BG Note: Several astute Blinders have pointed out that this story is one that has been circulating around the Internet for years. We don’t know if Laura Wasser’s celebrity client was the first one to do this; or if she was aware of the urban legend and copied it in real life; or whether Wasser used the story in her book as an example of revenge.
