A Staten Islander who purchased a one-bedroom apartment for his former mistress in Chelsea wants to give her the boot, but she refuses to budge.

Manuela Wingruber, who told the New York Post she was invovled with the married Samuel Brettler in 2006 when he purchased her home at Douglaston Development’s 555 West 23rd Street, told the paper he wants her to leave now that their affair has been over for a year. She also accused Brettler, who allegedly told her he was “separated from his wife” at the time, of forming a bogus realty company to force her out, according to the legal claim cited by the Post.

As she is the only person who has lived in the apartment for the past seven years and has invested money in the space, she told the Post she “is entitled to physically occupy and retain possession of the unit.”

Brettler, for his part, did not respond to the Post’s requests for comment. [NYP]Julie Strickland
