Jules Wainstein Finalizes Divorce From Michael Wainstein!

Page Six reports that Real Housewives of New York City alum Jules Wainstein and her estranged husband, Michael Wainstein, finally finalized their divorce after a four-year-long battle.

“My client is happy to close this chapter of his life and is looking forward to moving on,” Michael’s attorney, Morghan Richardson, told Page Six in a statement on Tuesday.

However, the former couple is still battling out the child custody issues in Florida.

Earlier this year, Jules was arrested after an incident with her ex Michael in Palm Beach County, Florida.

According to the police report via The Blast, Michael told police his ex-wife punched him and scratched his face during a custody exchange. The alleged fight went down while their two kids watched on.

Michael arrived to drop off the kids to Jules and started filming her over fears she would get physical. The two recently argued over his child support payments to her.

The police report says Michael started recording Jules during the incident. He says she took out a baseball bat but then put it down. Police reviewed the footage which say backed up his claims. They noted a red mark on Michael’s check and a small scratch on his nose. The report states Jules admitted to pulling out the baseball bat telling them, "I was angry" and "I smacked him."

Palm Beach County’s Sheriff took Jules into custody and booked her into jail for a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery. She was released on her own recognizance the next day.

Michael’s attorney, Morghan Richardson said that Michael is “exploring all of his legal options at this time.”

“This is a serious situation reflecting Ms. Wainstein’s increasingly reckless behavior that unfortunately took place in front of the kids,” Richardson told Page Six. “The children were released to Michael’s custody yesterday and he is most concerned about protecting them.”

In June 2016, a rep for Jules confirmed that she was divorcing her husband of eight years, Michael Wainstein. The cause for the split was cheating and she was blindsided by the cheating, the rep added.

“She appreciates the support of her Bravo family and fans," Jules said in a statement via her rep to Bravo's The Daily Dish. "Her main concern right now is taking care of her kids and focusing on her Modern Alkeme drink.”

Michael filed for divorce on May 16. “She busted her husband cheating. She caught him sneaking around with another woman,” the insider told Life & Style.
