Rudy Giuliani may be busy as President Trump’s lawyer and spokesman, but he’s apparently got time for romance too. The former New York City mayor, 74, who is in the midst of a divorce from third wife Judy Nathan, has confirmed he’s in a new relationship, with Republican fundraiser Jennifer LeBlanc of Louisiana. He’s also denying reports he had an affair while still married to Nathan. The New York Post alleges that Giuliani had an affair with a 53-year-old married woman, Maria Ryan, at a New Hampshire resort. “She’s beautiful,” Giuliani said, “but she’s a very strict Catholic,” and “her husband”—a former Marine—“would kill me” if the rumors were true. Five days after the two were spotted together, Nathan filed for divorce. “My husband’s denial of the affair,” she said, “is as false as his claim that we were separated when he took up with her.” Regarding the divorce, Giuliani said, “I’m happy to do 50-50. My guess is she’s going to want more and that’s what this is about.”
Investment guru Bill Gross is accused of stinking up the $36 million Southern California mansion he lost to his ex-wife, putting dead fish in the air vents and spraying “fart” and “vomit” scents throughout the house. Sue Gross says she found the foul-smelling spray bottles in nearby trash cans. She claims her 74-year-old ex-husband, who became a legend and a billionaire as the manager of the bond fund Pimco, also hired a company to spy on her. “I am exhausted and beleaguered,” she said. Gross accused Sue of swapping a $36.9 million Picasso in his bedroom with a fake she painted herself.
Track Palin, the son of former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, pleaded guilty this week to criminal trespass in connection with his assault on his father, Todd, last year. In the plea deal in a special court for veterans in Anchorage, Track agreed to undergo extensive therapy and weekly urine tests for drugs and alcohol; if he doesn’t complete the program, he faces a year in jail. “Everything I’m seeing so far is a guy who’s really motivated to improve himself,” said Anchorage District Attorney Rick Allen. Palin was accused of breaking into his parents’ Wasilla home in December 2017, leaving Todd battered and bleeding. His mother called police, claiming Track was “freaking out.” ■
