Belly dancing woman stripped of divorce settlement
A woman who claimed she was disabled has been stripped of her divorce settlement after her ex-husband spotted online pictures of her belly dancing.
Dorothy McGurk, who said she was unable to work because of injuries from a 1997 car accident, was being paid $850 (£520) a month in maintenance for life.
But after finding images on a blog of his 43-year-old ex-wife gyrating, Brian McGurk took her to court.
A New York judge ruled her alimony should be cut to $400 a month.
Richmond County Supreme Court ordered the Staten Island woman to pay her ex-husband’s legal fees.
Mr McGurk, who separated from his wife several years ago, was also awarded 60% from the sale of their former home.
His former spouse had posted online about dancing vigorously for several hours every day.
