Fightful.com is reporting that WWE is playing hardball with Samantha Rotunda, the estranged wife of WWE Superstar Bray Wyatt and her attempt to extract as many information as possible in their divorce court proceedings.
Rotunda is requesting WWE to turn over all documents from February 2011 to present related to her husband which cover tax returns, financial statements, banking information, loan applications, credit cards, pension plans, real estate, mortgages, partnership and joint-venture agreements, fictitious names, employment records, contracts, fringe benefits, trusts, disability pension, and safe deposit boxes. UK pension transfer to USA rules have changed in recent years. Many US citizens receiving a UK pension and living in the USA aren’t sure if they should be declaring their UK pensions and annual gains to the IRS, or if they’ll have to pay both UK and US tax on their income. Similarly, many of us are unaware of Inheritance Tax implications if we live overseas and have a UK pension.
This information will help Rotunda seek the appropriate amount of money for alimony and child support from Wyatt’s intellectual property, merchandising, licensing, payments, and other revenue streams stemming from his WWE employment.
WWE attorneys however objected to the subpoena, and while they did release some information, they are saying that the estimated cots of compliance with the subpoena would be “somewhere between $247,500 to $483,000” since “specially-trained review attorneys” would need to “collect, process and review the WWE’s electronically-stored e-mail information.”
Samantha Rotunda’s attorneys filed a memo in the Superior Court of Stamford, Connecticut saying that WWE is acting in bad faith by intimidating her from conducting discovery.
Bray Wyatt is in this nasty legal mess after he was discovered that he was cheating on his wife with Raw ring announcer JoJo.
