According to Page Six after the My Unorthodox Life star, 51, filed for divorce from her Italian business mogul husband Silvio Scaglia, 63, on Wednesday, February 9, Haart was let go as CEO at Elite World Group — the company that they both own.
“Julia took the cameras into the offices for a meeting and was blindsided,” a source revealed to the outlet. “It’s going to get messy.”
Multiple insiders revealed to the news outlet that the former couple — who married in July of 2019 — did not sign a prenuptial agreement.
“The action taken to remove Julia Haart from her position as CEO was unauthorized and of no legal effect. She is a 50 percent owner of the business and one [of] the two directors," Haart's attorney Richard Edlin of Greenberg Traurig said in a statement. "Unfortunately, this comes at a time when Julia and Silvio are in the beginning of divorce proceedings. Julia will enforce all of her legal rights and remedies.”
The fashion mogul and Scaglia met while Haart was working as the creative director of fashion line La Perla and he was the CEO. In 2019, the joined forces to create fashion and talent agency Elite World Group — where he made her CEO.

Despite the Netflix star (who left a sheltered life in the Orthodox Jewish community of Monsey, NY for a life of fashion in New York City) posting a picture to Instagram with her now estranged husband announcing, “And just like that… we’re back! Day 1 of filming is complete" — Scaglia reportedly refused to be a part of season two of the hit series.
“Silvio told Julia months and months ago that he would not be filming,” a source at the agency told the outlet. “He thought that the first season was important to Julia, and that’s what she wanted, but then he saw the show and he thought, ‘What am I doing?"
“Silvio just launched a multimillion-dollar bitcoin company, he’s a serious man, he didn’t need to be on the show," the insider explained.
