Julia Haart granted permission from judge to use apartment for event

Lawyers for exes Julia Haart and Silvio Scaglia legally battled it out on Tuesday over a highly controversial venue for a political fundraising party Haart was said to host at the multimillion-dollar couple’s former marital home.

Vidak For Congress has been informed exclusively that Haart – who is currently filming for her Netflix show “My Unorthodox Life” – has been cleared to allow the event to continue on Tuesday, just hours before the guests were due to arrive, but with a number of provisions.

Vidak For Congress reported this week that Haart’s pro-choice fundraiser for Texas politician Beto O’Rourke, scheduled for June 21, was at stake as her ex, Scaglia, objected because he hadn’t given permission to use the space.

Sources told us the “building management company, according to Mr. Scaglia, has been instructed not to admit anyone who is not an occupant of the apartment.”

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

However, Judge Douglas Hoffman ruled in an injunction through the New York Supreme Court on Tuesday that Haart, who lives at the Vestry Street home, may proceed with the event, ruling that Scaglia “is not interfering . . . in any way.” also.”

Going forward, Haart must notify Scaglia 10 days in advance if she plans to hold an event with more than 30 people. If Scaglia objects, he must raise the matter through his lawyers within three days.

The reality star has also been ordered to try and get insurance for the “penthouse contents.” Without it, she will “personally guarantee the security and protection of the content.”

Participants in the fundraiser, which has a guest list that includes high-profile names such as New York Attorney General Leticia James, may notice something unusual is going on.

The judge also ordered that there be signs in the Penthouse stating that “Freedom Holdings Inc, controlled by Silvio Scaglia, is politically neutral and does not endorse any political position or views. It does, however, welcome guests to tonight’s event.”

Nancy Chemtob, attorney for Julia Haart, tells us: “Trying to stop an event that supports and celebrates women’s rights was a new low, even for someone as desperate as Silvio — who again failed to embarrass Julia. as part of his continued harassment. She looks forward to welcoming this group of feminist leaders to her apartment.”

Haart and Scaglia split in February after Haart was fired from Elite World Group.

Meanwhile, Freedom Holdings attorney Lanny Davis, who made it clear that he has no problem with the politics of the event, tells us: “We are very happy with today’s result. That Julia Haart can finally not fake it until she makes it. She now has to admit that he owns the apartment and that she is there as a tenant. Now she has to discuss with him whether she wants to have another party, which she should have done.”

How the couple’s assets – including the apartment – will be divided will be decided in the upcoming divorce case.

The fundraiser fight is just another battle in an ongoing messy split.

Scaglia has alleged that Haart stole from Elite World Group to fund her lavish personal lifestyle, buy designer clothes and get a boob job from the “corporate dime.”

Haart called the accusations “ridiculous” and said, “I’ve never taken a dime that didn’t belong to me.”

They also fought over a $132,000 company, Bentley.

Haart filed for divorce in February, just hours after she was unceremoniously fired from Freedom Holding’s Elite World Group.
