Baruch Singer and 500 Grand Street

Baruch Singer, a landlord with a history of facing building violations and lawsuits, is now dealing with a legal complaint closer to home — this one from his wife.

Singer’s wife, Suzanne, claims that her husband breached the conditions of a post-nuptial agreement by paying her a monthly allowance of $9,000 instead of $12,000 and by refusing to go to marriage counseling, according to a lawsuit filed in New York State Supreme Court on Monday.

The pair still live together at their Lower East Side apartment at 500A Grand Street, according to the suit. They had signed the post-nuptial agreement in December. Suzanne claims that in March, her husband “unilaterally and intentionally” failed to paid the agreed-upon sum and instead paid her $9,000.

“In addition to this reduced payment, the defendant has threatened the plaintiff with further reductions in her payments,” the complaint states.

Suzanne is also seeking about $2 million in damages, claiming that Baruch failed to maintain a $1 million life insurance policy and another $1 million elder care policy in her name, in line with the demands of the post-nuptial agreement.

The Singers could not be immediately reached for comment.

The landlord has remained active in New York, having filed plans in December for a 180,000-square-foot office building in Midwood.
