HeвЂ™s happy the only thing she hacked ended up being their computer.
Linda Simon, the estranged wife of hedge-fund supervisor and CNBC commentator David Simon, admitted she broke into her husbandвЂ™s work computer вЂ” but says she made it happen simply to prove he squandered вЂњhundreds of several thousand marital assetsвЂќ on his extramarital affairs, including $250,000 in вЂњhush cashвЂќ to a female with who he fathered a child year that is last.
In August, David SimonвЂ™s $100 million hedge investment, Twin Capital Management, sued Linda along with her breakup lawyer, Jason Advocate, for $25 million in Manhattan Civil Court for hacking their work computer and accessing the hedge fundвЂ™s вЂњtrade secrets,вЂќ вЂњhighly private economic recordsвЂќ and its particular customersвЂ™ personal economic information.
Twin Capital later on relocated to dismiss Advocate as LindaвЂ™s lawyer into the civil action, citing their conflict being a co-defendant within the case that is hacking.
A security and surveillance company in responding to the allegations for the first time last week, Linda admitted she hacked DavidвЂ™s computer and copied loads of files, using the help of T&M Protection Resources.
But she stated she made it happen to have evidence of DavidвЂ™s вЂњinfidelities and waste that is marital вЂ” not for information about Twin CapitalвЂ™s trading or clientele, she stated inside her filings.
The info collected by T&M show that вЂњSimon had been a вЂsugar daddyвЂ™ to many women that are young a site called sugardaddy and had been shelling out thousands of bucks each week paying these females вЂallowancesвЂ™ to be at their beck and call,вЂќ Linda stated within the filing.
