Real-life Gekko’s in ex-rated drama
A supposed inspiration for Gordon Gekko is having money problems of his own.
Asher Edelman, a corporate raider-turned-art dealer, has been slapped with a big bucks lawsuit by his ex-wife, Regina, who says he’s nearly a decade behind in his payments to her.
In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Regina Edelman says her ex agreed to pay her over $800,000 when they split back in 2003. He still owes her $303,000 as of June 2008, the filing says.
Her suit seeks the rest of the cash – with nine years and eleven months worth of interest.
A lawyer for Regina declined comment. Edelman did not return a call for comment.
(But she waited “nearly a decade” to demand the money? And take a look at all that interest — nine years and eleven months worth. I’m wondering how it’s calculated.)
