Steve Cohen’s ex-wife filed a lawsuit against him at the worst possible time for him on purpose.
There’s a new NYMag profile of Cohen’s ex-wife, Patricia, who filed a lawsuit claiming the billionaire hedge fund manager1hid assets from her and had also engaged in insider trading in the late 1980s.
An excerpt: The suit had affected Steve’s business at a time when he was trying to recruit new investors, no doubt a satisfaction in and of itself.
Here are two sentences from emails she wrote around the time she was filing the lawsuit:
“He’s in the most vulnerable position he’s ever been in.”
“I’m so excited I can hardly contain myself.”
Hell hath no fury.
