A Manhattan hedge-fund honcho is threatening to turn his estranged wife into the next Paris Hilton — promising that unless she agrees to his cheapo divorce settlement, he’ll circulate videos of them having sex, a blockbuster lawsuit says.
In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Lily Shang, 24, says hubby David Glenn Rucker has told her he’ll post video on the Internet of raunchy romps in their Battery Park City apartment if she doesn’t cut him a good deal.
And he plans on making it a solo show.
Rucker has “made it clear that he will . . . edit himself out and/or use video that already consists only of plaintiff,” the filing says.
Rucker, 26, filed for divorce in October and has ignored Shang’s pleas to either give her “certain video of intimate moments of a sexual and private nature” or destroy them, the filing says.
Instead, the cad “has threatened to release video of the plaintiff, especially onto the Internet, if she does not agree to a low financial settlement in [the] divorce proceedings,” the filing says.
The action seeks a court order blocking the video’s release, on the grounds that Shang “is a co-owner of the copyrights of the videos as a joint author under federal and state copyright laws,” and that Rucker doesn’t have the required written authorization to release it.
Rucker, a founder and principal of Golden Archer Investments in lower Manhattan, did not return calls or e-mails for his comment, and his lawyer did not return calls.
The money man started up Golden Archer in 2007 and soon crossed paths with Shang, an economics whiz and jet-setting Toronto native.
The cute Canadian had just made good on her long-term plan to move to New York — in a 2005 blog posting, she wrote, “I went to NYC last week and totally love it. I had such a power trip walking down Wall Street. With some luck and hard work, I know I can get there.”
In other blog postings, the raven-haired overachiever — who says she graduated from college in just three years while doing volunteer political work — recounted her party-girl lifestyle.
“It’s a life filled with glamorous parties, beautiful friends, money, politics and a burning ambition to become something more,” the blog says. “I say hello to the future with a smile, a wink and a flip of my hair.”
Her love life, however, was rocky.
“It ended last Thursday, and when it did, I felt as if I had been there and done it before. Maybe because he wasn’t the first ‘good guy’ who didn’t fit into my life,” she wrote in one posting.
Shang’s lawyer, Matthew Seidner, declined comment.
