It’s all coming out in the developer’s contentious divorce

Sans prenup, Harry Macklowe’s divorce from his wife Linda is likely to get ugly. But before things can really heat up, lawyers have to figure out how much the billionaire real estate mogul is really worth.

Harry, 79, allegedly left his wife Linda for a younger woman — Patricia Landeau — after 57 years of marriage, leaving the couple not on the best of terms. But the two were forced to meet at court on Friday, as lawyers hashed out whether a neutral appraiser or their own experts would be used to determine Harry’s net worth ahead of the divorce proceedings, according to the New York Post.

The pair’s art collection has been estimated to be worth $1 billion.

“In court, Linda kept her head buried in a newspaper during much of the proceedings, only looking up to shake her head at her soon-to-be ex when he left the courtroom. Harry walked around a row of chairs to avoid any contact with his longtime spouse,” according to the Post. [NYP]Christopher Cameron
