Dennis Kozlowski’s Wife Files For Divorce

Poor Karen Kozlowski. Her husband Dennis Kozlowski, the ex-chief of Tyco International, survived all the way through sentencing following his conviction for looting Tyco. No Ken Lay Asset Preservation Plan for her. Instead, she’s opted for the second-best method—she’s divorcing her jailed husband.
Kozlowski has been selling assets in order to pay the $167 million in court-ordered fines. By divorcing Dennis, Karen may be able to save some of the couple’s assets, even if they were purchased with money borrowed, looted or otherwise coming from Tyco. And, in fact, her divorce papers stake a claim to the waterfront mansion the couple bought with Tyco dollars in 2001.
You cannot really blame Karen for wanting to keep living off of Tyco money. She’s the one whose birthday on Sardinia famously cost $1 million dollars. And Tyco—and it’s shareholders—paid for it.

Dennis Kozlowski Says Steve Forbes Defamed Him

While he’s not teaching GED courses to fellow inmates, doing laundry for the child molesters in his cell unit and dreaming about vodka-pissing statues, Dennis Kozlowski is busy trying to repair his reputation. He’s given interviews to Morley Safer and other journalists and has been a model prisoner since he was convicted of fraud in 2005. Koz is also, apparently, reading books about himself and now he’s suing billionaire Steve Forbes for what he claims are false and defamatory comments in in Forbes' 2009 book "Power, Ambition, Glory: The Stunning Parallels Between Great Leaders of the Ancient World and Today ... and the Lessons You Can Learn."
