A 67-year-old mistress who spent the last six years trying to get a retired media executive to divorce his wife and leave her alone at their Park Avenue home has filed a $2million suit against the man.
James Greenwald, 88, was professionally and romantically involved with Theodora Lee Corsell while he was living with his wife Marilee, according to papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court. Corsell is suing for the ‘reasonable value’ of the six years during which her ‘services’ went unpaid.
She claims she performed tasks for Greenwald such as helping him get rid of New York Giants tickets, dealing with a $3million threat from another mistress and digging up dirt on his 77-year-old wife, according to the New York Post.
Corsell, who said her ‘professional services were separate and apart from the parties’ romantic relationship’, alleges Greenwald said he owed her ‘everything’ and promised to compensate her as well as indicated he would leave his wife.
Greenwald said he would pay Corsell and include her in his will, the New York Daily News reported. The payment did not happen and neither did the divorce.
