Girl Loses Allowance and Its $26,000 a Month and Shes 47 Years Old
New York Magazine ^ | 9/20 | Dan Amira

Posted on 09/20/2013 4:13:06 PM PDT by nickcarraway

There's a lot going in this "Page Six" story about wealthy "builder to the stars" Ben Krupinski, whose daughter, former model Laura Krupinski, accused him of having an affair with Martha Stewart. Most interesting is the insight it offers us into the world of the megarich. Firstly, how they feud ...

Page Six has exclusively learned that Krupinski, 66 — worth an estimated $150 million and who counts business moguls Steve Cohen and Leon Black among his clients — has cut off 47-year-old Laura from her $26,000-a-month allowance and thrown her out of a family-owned mansion in Bedford ...

"My dad cut off my monthly allowance in April and kicked me out of the Bedford house. They took away everything I own — all my clothes, even my wedding china."

... and secondly, their complete lack of self-awareness. Because even though the most embarrassing part of the story is a 47-year-old's pouting about losing her exorbitant monthly allowance, Laura Krupinski, the story's primary source, seems to view it as some sort of public-relations victory:

She should be more careful with it. She’s not getting any more allowance until next month!

This entitled rich witch has an interesting take on the word ‘own’. I ‘own’ the things I paid for with my own money. My parents let me know early on I did not own what they provided because I had not WORKED for it.

It says they took her wedding china? She was married? She can’t keep her own china?

The father denied it and the mother doesn’t believe her. It could be true, but the daughter is a little off, so it might not be.

did they pay for it? I don’t know anything except what was in the story and it was sketchy. But I am sorry at 47 you should be doing something useful EVEN if your folks have money

Amazing! Before I met Mrs. pallis I went with a girl whose daddy had multiple millions, and she was as broke as I was. We worked at the same low paying job. I never heard her complain, or ask her father for anything, and I always respected her for it.

She apparently has a son and a daughter too, although apparently not custody. Rich Girl

The poor little rich girl in the story should have banked half the allowance and she could still have owned a very nice home outright.

Whatever you buy with money someone gives you is yours.

I remember when I lost my $10 a month at age 18. It’s hard to feel sorry for this bimbo. All I wanted was another 45 record. They were 25 cents then.

Martha Stewart is an ex-con. Besides, her voice grates on my last nerve.

Looks like pop was 19 when he spawned her.

66-47 = 19

FWIW
Probably not the best decision of his life.

If someone is married and self-sufficient, I see know reason why they shouldn’t have a child at 19.

Wonder if she had to pay taxes? Father was getting rid of money to avoid estate taxes?

‘She’s not getting any more allowance until next month!’

I am actually a little surprised that she was able to get by on only $26,000/month in this economy.

Thank God for Obamacare, think of all the money she will save.

In fairness, she was busted for something our congresscritters do every day.

She was busted for far less than that.

Martha Stewarts only crime was opening her mouth when government douchebagocrats came sniffing for money.

You do have a point.

She was busted because somebody didn’t like her. At worse, they should have fined her and confiscated her gains.
