Rudy Giuliani, who is already suffering from a mountain of legal problems, can add one more.

He is being sued by his ex-wife who wants him to cough up more than a quarter of a million dollars or go to jail.

In new court documents filed Tuesday with the New York State Supreme Court, Judith Giuliani alleges that the former mayor and one-time personal attorney for Donald Trump despised the court for allegedly withholding $262,000 he should have paid her under the law. terms of their divorce settlement for things like their Palm Beach, Florida, home, housekeeper, and private club expenses.

In an affidavit, Judith accuses Rudy of paying her $140,000 for their property in South Lake Drive, Palm Beach alone. The luxury apartment was on the market in 2019 for $3.3 million. It hasn’t been sold, but Judith claims in the documents that Rudy has to “pay me $200,000 regardless of whether the property is sold or not” according to the divorce settlement, and she claims he only gave her $60,000.

She also says they are responsible for their own dues at a country club, accusing Rudy of not paying “his half of the annual membership dues to the club”. She claims that in the meantime she has been forced to bail him out in the amount of $70,000. “I had no choice but to pay his share of the dues…to maintain a good reputation with the clubs,” she says in court papers. And she wants the money back.

He would also have to pay up to $5,000 a month to help her, such as an assistant or housekeeper. But she alleges in the documents that Rudy has made “inconsistent and sporadic payments to me since last summer, including a check for $10,000 in June 2021 that was returned due to insufficient funds.” She says in the papers that he now owes $45,000 in back wages for the aid.

Despite his recent troubles, Judith is convinced that Rudy has the money to split the $262,000.

“He owns multiple properties in New York City and Palm Beach [and it seems] he has significant income from his media-related contracts and deals.”

According to the file, she demands that he pay “immediately” with interest.

And Judith’s lawyers say he has contempt in court for allegedly skipping payment, and they say he should be behind bars if he doesn’t get his act together.

Judith filed for divorce in April 2018 after 15 years of marriage. The pair had a controversial battle, floundering over their combined estimated fortune of $30 million.

Her then-lawyer, Bernard Clair, accused Rudy of working as a Trump attorney for free in order to cut his income and thereby reduce her $42,000 monthly alimony payments.

But there was not only a lot of money on the table. Things got personal.

Judith accused Rudy of stealing her extensive collection of Christmas decorations and accused her of taking his TV remotes and cable box so he couldn’t watch himself on TV.

They settled in December 2019. Details of the agreement were not made public at the time. Judith acquired the Hamptons’ former home, which she recently sold for $5 million.

Giuliani’s career and reputation seem to have fallen into freefall in recent years.

His law license has been suspended in both New York and the District of Columbia, he faces ethical charges for false election claims from the DC bar, and Dominion Voting Systems — which provided voting machines for the 2020 election that he alleges had been tampered with. — sued him for $1.3 billion.

He has also been accused of being drunk on election night, which he denies, and will testify next month in Atlanta to a special grand jury investigating the alleged interference of Trump and his allies in the vote in Georgia.

Last year, federal agents raided his home and office as part of an investigation into whether he had asked Ukrainian officials to help unearth information about Hunter Biden.

He also recently claimed that he was assaulted by a ShopRite employee at a campaign rally for his son, Andrew. But the video showed that the alleged attack was more of a pat on the back. Mayor Eric Adams called him a “Karen” and called on the district attorney to consider prosecuting him for allegedly filing a false police report.
