The messy divorce trial of New York banker Sage Kelly and his wife Christina has gripped national headlines for months now, and their judge, Matthew Cooper, has had enough of it.
Sage is an investment banker who makes over $7 million a year. He appeared to have the perfect life in New York, where he lived with his beautiful wife and their daughters Cameron, 10, and Logan, 6. However, things are not always what they seem.
The Kelly’s garnered national attention back in October, when Christina’s 26 page affidavit was made public, and it revealed her husband’s excessive cocaine use and disturbing sexual hijinks. In one excerpt, Christina detailed the cocaine-fueled foursome she and Sage had with head of Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Marc Beer, and his girlfriend at the Boston Ritz Carlton.
Sage denied Christina’s accusations, admitting that he and his wife used drugs “at certain social events in the past,” but stated “the Wolf of Wall Street tale [Christina] tells this court is a work of fiction.”
Christina herself has had numerous run-ins with the law. Last July, she was caught doing cocaine on her home security cameras. Back in May of 2010, she was charged with felony DWI and endangering the welfare of a child after she crashed her car into a telephone pole with her two daughters in the backseat.
As a result of these charges, Sage won custody of the girls, which led to Christina countersuing and her affidavit going public. They recently settled for an undisclosed amount of money and joint custody, but Justice Matthew Cooper made it clear to them that there are no winners in this case.
Judge Cooper called their conduct “horrible” and said he felt bad for their “innocent children.”
“This ended up as horrible as it can be for Mr. Kelly and I guess to some extent for Ms. Kelly, but most of all for the children,” Cooper said.
