Jules Wainstein's Child Custody Battle Gets Ugly with Talk of Drug Abuse
“Real Housewives of New York” star Jules Wainstein and estranged hubby Michael Wainstein are fighting over custody of their two kids — with the husband claiming she has a history of drug abuse.

The Wainsteins appeared Wednesday in Manhattan matrimonial court, their second appearance in the former couple’s divorce proceedings. They currently share custody of their kids.

Michael Wainstein’s lawyer, Morghan Richardson, said he wants custody of the kids, claiming she “has a history of drug use and abuse.”

“Look no further than to watch TV to see the bag of drugs that she carries around,” Richardson said, alluding to a summer episode of “Real Housewives of New York” in which she talks about carrying lidocaine and Percocet with her.

Richardson also said Jules Wainstein had a “stint at a rehab center” for drug abuse and an eating disorder.

Justice Michael Katz demanded evidence of the alleged drug abuse, such as an affidavit from their nanny, saying “I don't try cases based on what may or may not be on the television.”

Asked about allegations of drug abuse and her husband’s push for custody, Jules Wainstein said after the hearing, “I'm not allowed to talk, I'm sorry.”
