Sage KellySome words you don’t often hear senior Wall Street execs say aloud are “I have never defecated or urinated in bed, on the floor or a wall.” And yet, Sage Kelly, Global Head of Healthcare Investment Banking at Jefferies, said exactly that in court papers this week, in response to allegations by his wife that he’s mistaken all of those places for a toilet, in addition to other stuff re: copious drug use, “foursomes,” and “wife-swapping.” Read more »

Ken Griffin Introduces The Concept Of His Divorce Voice

It's The Griffins!As those of you keeping up with the conscious uncoupling of Kenneth Griffin and his soon-to-be ex-wife Anne Dias Griffin know, both the Citadel founder and his bride have been playing the hardest of ball re: marital assets, reputations, etc, since he filed for divorce over the summer, maintaining, through their attorneys, that each other can suck it. For her part, Anne has alleged that Ken:

  • Surprised her divorce papers while she was on vacation with their three children
  • Had a couple’s therapist he was seeing on his own convince her to sign a pre-nup
  • Is an absentee father
  • Changed the locks on their houses
  • “…threatened to demolish part of the family’s primary Chicago residence”

In response, Ken has:

  • Reminded Anne about the time he dressed up “as Spider-Man for a school Halloween party and as a prince for a daughter’s birthday party”
  • Reiterated that if Anne thinks she’s getting a dime more the prenup stipulates, she oughta think again

…and most recently, said in court filings that 1. Use of his private jet is privilege, not a right and 2. What she might have interpreted as terrifying verbal abuse was simply how he talks when he’s divorcing someone and not cause for alarm. Read more »

Along with sole custody, Ms. Griffin wants to “permanently remove the children to New York City, where the family has a residence.” Mr. Griffin filed a motion late last week seeking more access to his children. A source close to Mr. Griffin called the father of three a devoted dad who’s been known to dress as Spider-Man for a school Halloween party and as a prince for a daughter’s birthday party that had a princess theme. And he’s a familiar face at the Lab School, where his two oldest children attend, the source said. [Chicago Business, earlier]

OH NO HE DI’INT: Ken Griffin Divorce Edition

Back in July, after he filed for divorce from his wife of 11 years, we noted that Ken Griffin’s title as World’s Richest Illinoisan was in peril. In light of the fact that even if Anne Dias Griffin took half, the Citadel founder would still be worth over $1 billion, this comment may have seemed a tad dramatic. Following today’s report that Anne wants their prenuptial agreement voided, though, and is clearly playing the hardest of ball, it doesn’t seem dramatic in the slightest. She’s going after him for everything, and if the idea of her demanding not just cash, homes, and art but the keys to the hedge fund sounds laughable than laugh it up! Also, if the (soon-to-be-ex-) Mrs. needs any pointers on playing dirty, she (allegedly!) needn’t look far. Read more »

This goes out to no one in particular; they just want to make certain things clear, in case anyone is getting any ideas about, say, marital assets. Ideas about stuff like that. Read more »
