Wealthy CEO torments ex-wife (Staples founderís ex-wife: Iíll be out on the street)
PurseLog ^ | Sept 3 2006

Maureen Sullivan Stemberg, ex-wife of Staples founder, sits in her $5,200 a month, 14th-floor, concierge-at-the-door, elegantly furnished Back Bay apartment and tells you she’s broke. She can’t work. She can’t afford a car, her medications, her rent, even the family springer spaniel, J.J., who she just gave away.

She produces doctors notes detailing medical woes: possible lupus, bouts of pneumonia requiring hospitalizations, a history of cancer, petit mal seizures, plus recommendations for thrice weekly psychotherapy and psychiatry. She says her insurance won’t cover mental health care.

“I’m going to be out on the street,” says Sullivan Stemberg, a tiny, 50-ish woman who alternates between an overanxious recitation of worries, and tears. “I’ve had a change of circumstances.”

She got 4 million in the divorce settlement and blew it on lawyers trying to get more. Sorry. No sympathy.

“Soon after their 1987 divorce, Sullivan Stemberg was worth $5 million, but she spent $4 million contesting her settlement and defending a defamation suit brought by Stemberg and his second wife”

And the divorce was 20 years ago.

2006 story of a 20 year old divorce settlement-— don’t see how this affects Mitt Romney in any way.

It’s about trying to do a Jack Ryan against Romney.

For those not familiar with Ryan:

Sleazy Obama politics.

Wow a 1-percenter with a 99-percenter attitude. She should start an “Occupy Fifth-Avenue” event.

First no half way honest judge would grant the motion.

Second, Romney has already spoken on this to some extent. If he had something to fear he would have not been open on it.

Third this is about money and politics period.

Here is ACE’s post on the subject and what he is hearing about what Trump has.

Only thing they have is that he may have misled on Staples value; but, then again, with such an unsympathetic heroine, I don’t really think people will care.
