Jules Wainstein’s Husband Michael Denies Cheating: She’s a ‘Drama Queen’

It’s getting ugly. Michael Wainstein is denying that he ever cheated on his estranged wife, Real Housewives of New York City newcomer Jules Wainstein. The businessman’s attorney went on the record about the recent claims on Thursday, June 16.

“Yes [the marriage is over],” Mark Jay Heller told Us Weekly of the rumors. “If she had caught him cheating, she certainly would have put in an answer and account to claim alleging that he committed adultery.”

As previously reported, Jules’ rep told Us on Wednesday that the two were divorcing because of Michael’s alleged cheating. “It has nothing to do with the show,” the rep said. “They had issues for awhile but Jules was blindsided by this.”

According to Heller, however, the marriage actually fell apart because Michael was sick of Jules’ behavior as she settled into reality stardom. “She is really a wannabe drama queen and he no longer wants to be the drama king,” he told Us. (The pair first met outside of a French bistro and are parents to Rio, 2, and Jagger, 5.)

Reports of the pair’s relationship have only intensified since the news of their breakup. On Thursday, rumors surfaced that Michael threatened Jules, and photos showed cops outside their Manhattan apartment building.

“The story was that the police were called to the house and they basically swarmed the house. And when they got there they said, ‘What’s the matter? Why’d you call us?’ Because they saw that absolutely nothing was going on,” Heller told Us, alleging that Jules told authorities that Michael was speaking “loudly” to her. Heller added: “I predict that if she does it again, she is going to get herself arrested for filing a false report.”

Jules’ rep, in response, is blasting Heller’s cheating denial. “[His] statement speaks for itself — it’s utterly disgusting,” the star’s rep told Page Six.

Jules, meanwhile, is keeping quiet about the split — and is leaning on friends for support. “I get by with a little help from my friends #friendsthatarefamily #RHONY,” she tweeted on Thursday. She added: “Nothing but love.” One night earlier — after news broke of her split — she hung out with pal and costar Countess Luann de Lesseps on a rooftop, as documented in Lesseps’ Instagram.
