The divorce lawyer for cocaine-ologist and former hand surgeon Michael Brown's estranged wife have filed a Family Court motion accusing him of violating agreed orders by spending nearly half a million dollars on strippers in 2011.
Rachel Brown's attorney, David Brown (no relation), alleges that the good doctor spent $130,000 on stripper and adult model Ashley Brouillette, a.k.a. Stacy Shey, between December 2010 and May 2011, and $360,000 on three other (unnamed) strippers during the same period.
The alleged expenditures were not reasonable or necessary living expenses and were not authorized by the separated couple's agreed temporary orders, according to the motion.
The stripper expenses join a host of previously alleged violations, including Michael Brown's purchase of a home adjacent to the Memorial mansion -- through a company he owns -- occupied by Rachel since the separation, in order to spy on her; and allegations that he attached electronic monitoring devices to her Mercedes in 2011.
It's been an interesting past few weeks for the Handy-Man: first a stripper alleges that Brown, who's so unconvincingly tried to portray himself as a family man, paid for the privilege of steadily banging her and three of her colleagues; and then a woman files suit in New York City, accusing him of knowingly giving her anal and vaginal herpes.
Frankly, we don't know why he stopped seeing Brouillette -- for one thing, according to her Twitter, she just bumped her breasts up to a D-cup: "It's off to the surgery center, time for tits!"
We've got calls in to David Brown and Robert Kuehm, Michael Brown's attorney, and will update if we hear back.
