The bitter saga of Harry Macklowe and Linda Macklowe’s divorce isn’t over yet.

Linda plans to appeal their divorce ruling and is refusing to sell their art collection worth an estimated $700 million, according to the New York Post. Her decision came shortly after Harry plastered a giant portrait of him and his new wife Patricia Landeau on 432 Park Avenue to celebrate his new marriage.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Laura Drager ordered the former couple to sell and split their art collection in December, and Linda has since filed a motion to stay.

Harry told the Post that the courts have not responded to this motion yet and denied that the portrait of him and Landeau had any connection with Linda.

“The billboards have nothing to do with my former wife,” he said. “We’re divorced. It’s over. Why wouldn’t I be able to go on with my life?” [NYP] – Eddie Small
