Divorce fight over ‘fund’ house


JULIA Haart and her ex, Silvio Scaglia, who have been embroiled in a messy divorce, are now going to war over a political fundraiser planned for Tuesday at their former marital home.

We hear that Haart — who is currently filming for the second season of her Netflix reality show “My Unorthodox Life” — has planned a pro-choice fundraiser for Texas gubernator­ial candidate Beto O’Rourke with big names including New York Attorney General Letitia James on the guest list.

The event, set to take place on the terrace of the former couple’s multimilli­on-dollar Vestry Street apartment, is hanging in the balance, with ex Scaglia objecting since he did not give his permission to use the space.

Sources tell us that the building’s “management company, per Mr. Scaglia, have been instructed not to allow anyone who is not a resident of the apartment in.”

We hear lawyers have been back and forth over the event, with Scaglia “objecting” to Haart’s use of the terrace, specifical­ly.

The home is owned by Scaglia’s Freedom Holdings. In May, Vice Chancellor Morgan T. Zurn of the Delaware Court of Chancery declared that despite earlier claims by Haart, she does not own half Freedom Holdings.

We are told that how the couple’s assets — including the apartment — are divided will be decided in the upcoming divorce case.

Lawyers for Haart tell us, “However [the apartment] is owned, it is her home and she has full right and position to every single inch of that home.” They claim the recent dustup is meant to be another way of “ruining her reputation and embarrassi­ng her.” “This is him torturing her. This is a game. It’s a charade,” her attorneys tell us.

A lawyer for Scaglia’s Freedom Holdings, who made it clear Scaglia does not object to the politics of the event, tells us: “This is about the rule of law and the issue of ownership as ruled by the Delaware Chancery judge.”
