Julia Haart's estranged husband Silvio Scaglia's legal team has spoken out about the recent retrieval of the leased $132,000 Bentley.
Following the My UnOrthodox Life star's firing from fashion and talent agency Elite World Group — where she had been co-owner and CEO since 2019 — her former businessman spouse accused Haart of keeping the Bentley two-tone red black Mulsanne without permission.
In turn, Scaglia filed a report with the cops accusing his former wife of alleged “unauthorized” use of a $132,000 Bentley before ultimately dropping the charges. Meanwhile, Haart's team made it out to seem like authorities backed away from the situation after realizing it was just two former spouses butting heads over once shared items, rather than Scaglia deciding to retract his request to charge his ex, as his lawyer explained.
At the time, the Netflix star's representatives alleged in a statement: “Silvio does not own the car. The cops are not looking for Julia. The car is not stolen … Also, the cops have since demurred on the whole thing. It’s a civil matter.”
However, the tech entrepreneur's attorney, Lanny J. Davis, said in an exclusive statement to OK! that the charges were dropped and that Haart's reps were misrepresenting the situation.
"EWG decided to terminate the Bentley lease. The reason was that the company did not need to continue to spend the high lease monthly payments. This was an example of excessive spending by Ms. Haart that was one of the reasons she was terminated for cause as CEO of EWG on February 9," Davis noted.
"The company's leased Bentley the location of the car was discovered by a company assistant on Friday, March 11, in a parking garage far from Ms. Haart's home. It was found in a space listed under the name of Julia Haart. Several NYC police officers came to the garage," the lawyer stated.
"They confirmed this was the vehicle leased by an EWG-related company. At 11:49 pm that night, EWG caused a towing company to tow the car, later that night be returned to the Bentley dealer and the lease terminated," the legal mind explained of the situation.
"Therefore, the company has decided to withdraw its request to the NYPD to summon Ms. Haart to court on the misdemeanor charge of unauthorized use of someone else's vehicle. If she wants to lease the Bentley, she can sign her own lease and pay for it," Davis concluded.
