Julia Haart was fired with the Netflix cameras rolling – and there’s no prenup
Expect things to get heated in the divorce between ‘My Unorthodox Life’ star Julia Haart and her husband, Italian tycoon Silvio Scaglia.
Haart, 51, filed for divorce from Scaglia, 63, on Wednesday – just hours after she was fired as CEO of Elite World Group, the company they co-own.
Now, multiple sources confirm that the couple didn’t sign a prenup before getting married in July 2019. They also say the reality show’s cameras were rolling as Haart was canned.
“Julia took the cameras into the offices for a meeting and was caught off guard,” an insider said.
Haart had no idea she was fired, Page Six reported.
A source from Elite said of the split, “It’s going to get messy.”
Scaglia – who is believed to be worth at least $1 billion – met Haart when she was creative director of fashion line La Perla and he was its CEO. He named Haart the CEO of his fashion and talent agency Elite World Group in 2019, the same year they married, and even changed his name to Haart.

Viewers of Haart’s Netflix reality hit were treated to glimpses of the couple’s fantastic $55 million Tribeca apartment as they both appeared in the first season of “My Unorthodox Life.”
Last week, Haart posted a picture of the two of them beaming together on Instagram, writing, “And just like that…we’re back!” The first day of filming is over.
However, it’s not even known when this photo was taken, and Page Six learns that Scaglia declined to appear in Season 2.

“Silvio told Julia months and months ago that he would not be filming,” a source told Elite. “He thought the first season was important to Julia, and that’s what she wanted, but then he saw the show and he was like, ‘What am I doing?’
“Silvio just started a multi-million dollar bitcoin company, he’s a serious man, he didn’t need to be on the show.”
Haart — who left a sheltered life in the Orthodox Jewish community of Monsey, NY, before moving to Manhattan and the fashion world — has vowed to fight his dismissal.

Her attorney, Richard Edlin of Greenberg Traurig, told Page Six: “The action taken to remove Julia Haart from her position as CEO was unauthorized and of no legal effect. She owns 50% of the company and one of [of] the two directors. Unfortunately, this comes at a time when Julia and Silvio are at the start of divorce proceedings. Julia will enforce all of her legal rights and remedies.
Netflix did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Representatives for Haart and Scaglia were unavailable for comment.
