77-Year Old Stepmom Accused Of Covering Up Sale Of 12-Room, $17.5M Big Apple Pad In Attempt To Dodge Having To Split Profit With Step-Daughter; Senior Agreed To Cough Up 50% Of Sale Profit To Settle Earlier Suit Saying She Tricked Hubby Into Signing Away Control Of Apartment To Her

In New York City, the New York Post reports:
  • Actor John Leguizamo’s mother-in-law is covering up the sale of her $17.5 million pad on the Upper West Side to keep her stepdaughter from a cut of the profits, a court filing claims.

    Rona Maurer — whose daughter, Justine, is married to Leguizamo — is allegedly violating a stipulation agreement by refusing to notify stepdaughter Lisa Bishop that she is in contract with a buyer for her 12-room apartment in the luxury San Remo building.

    In a Manhattan Surrogate’s Court filing, Bishop’s lawyer claims he became aware of the pending sale only when a pal told him.

    Maurer, 77, is allegedly keeping mum on the sale so she doesn’t have to give Bishop 50 percent of the net profits, as called for by a 2013 stipulation agreement.

    That agreement marked the end of an eight-year lawsuit that began when Maurer’s husband sued her, claiming she tricked him into signing papers handing over control of the apartment.

    Both Bishop ’s and Maurer ’s lawyers declined to comment on the petition..
