Russian Billionaire Rybolovlev Sued by Wife Over Penthouse Buy

Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev’s wife sued him over the $88 million purchase of a Central Park West penthouse in Manhattan from former Citigroup Inc. Chairman Sanford Weill.

Elena Rybolovleva, 45, of Geneva, who is seeking a divorce, yesterday sued her 45-year-old husband in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan. She accused him of fraudulently transferring property acquired during his marriage in violation of a Swiss court order to buy the New York penthouse “with the specific intent of hiding and diverting his personal interest in the property.”
