Prop­erty broth­ers Shocker

Life & Style Weekly - - Relationsh­ip Drama -

Prop­erty Broth­ers star Jonathan Scott opens up about his first mar­riage for the first time in It Takes Two: Our Story. Us­ing frank, emo­tional lan­guage in the new mem­oir co-writ­ten by his twin, Drew, Jonathan de­scribes a re­la­tion­ship that quickly be­came dys­func­tional and doomed. The HGTV star writes about strug­gling with the ex­trav­a­gant spend­ing and self­ish be­hav­ior of his wife. And while he says that they did try coun­sel­ing, Jonathan, 39, claims that she broke his heart by giv­ing up on the ses­sions. “The pain ended up out­last­ing the mar­riage,” he writes. “It shook me to the core.”

His wife has never been iden­ti­fied — un­til now. Court pa­pers ob­tained ex­clu­sively by Life & Style re­veal her name is Kelsy Ully, and de­tail her ver­sion of their mar­riage’s break­down. She claims Jonathan

kicked her out of the Las Ve­gas home they shared and bad­gered her into sign­ing a separation con­tract. “Sub­se­quent to en­ter­ing into the Con­tract I dis­cov­ered that the matrimonia­l home I resided in with the Plain­tiff... sold and the eq­uity was ap­prox­i­mately $191,316.00, more than spec­i­fied in the Con­tract,” she wrote in court pa­pers. That con­tract, she notes, was drafted by Jonathan’s mother, a le­gal as­sis­tant. Kelsy, 33, says in the doc­u­ments that in Novem­ber 2009, Jonathan “told me that he didn’t want me liv­ing in our home in Las Ve­gas any­more and that I need to leave.”


Kelsy also al­leges in le­gal pa­pers that as the di­vorce dragged on, Jonathan “showed up at my house and was threat­en­ing that I would never win, and I would re­main in bank­rupt- cy for the rest of my life.” He also, she claims in le­gal pa­pers, kept show­ing up at her home and work, call­ing her, her fam­ily and her friends about get­ting di­vorce doc­u­ments signed.

But Jonathan tells a dif­fer­ent story. “The mar­riage was in ru­ins be­fore our sec­ond an­niver­sary,” he writes in his book. The two Canada na­tives had moved to Las Ve­gas so he could pur­sue a ca­reer as an il­lu­sion­ist. “My wife… was of­fered a job as a pool­side wait­ress­model at the ‘day club’ of one of the big ho­tels, where the booze flows like wa­ter and the tips are high. And things started to go down­hill from there.…my wife was out ev­ery night, com­ing home later and later.” And then he writes about their first fight — and it was a doozy! “[It] hap­pened the day I dis­cov­ered my wife had scrubbed me from her Face­book page, chang­ing her re­la­tion­ship

sta­tus from Mar­ried to blank.” Ouch!

Kelsy says she sup­ported Jonathan in their early days in Las Ve­gas and that’s why she felt she was en­ti­tled to more money. Their di­vorce dragged on un­til 2013. The one thing Jonathan — who’s now in a se­ri­ous re­la­tion­ship with Jac­inta Kuznetsov, 28, a de­vel­op­ment pro­ducer at his com­pany — and Kelsy agree on: It was one of the worst ex­pe­ri­ences of their lives.
