Meet the wife of failed Lehman Brother’s former VP Melinda Milberg, she is also known as Melinda Milberg, Melinda B Milberg, Melinda B Thaler or Melinda D Milberg.
Thursday at Manhattan Supreme Court it was the turn for 50-year-old Melinda to take the stand in the assault trial she and her husband are battling. According to the New York Daily News, the couple who has been married for the past 16-years are going through a bitter divorce and where once was love and “museums, movies music concerts… ballet, opera,” is now left with animalistic grunts and bites?
According to the 50-year-old Melinda, her former Lehman Brothers vice president hubby threatened to kill her during a violent April 1 attack that took place at their upper West Side home. She testified earlier today:
“He let out an almost animalistic grunt and sunk his teeth into my flesh,” “He started to grind his teeth into my flesh and then he released his bite.”
She is seen below leaving, the court where she was at the verge of tears but kept her composure the entire time.
