Hamptons socialite Libbie Mugrabi has claimed she is the victim after being arrested for attacking her housekeeper and threatening her with a knife.

The 43-year-old woman, who is the ex-wife of billionaire David Mugrabi, was arrested at her Sag Harbor home and charged with “threatening criminal mischief and criminal possession of a weapon,” police told the New York Post.

But she says that while she was away from her Long Island home, workers had taken over the place for glamping.

She added: ‘[They] they weren’t supposed to live there. They weren’t doing any work. They were glamping in the Hamptons.

Mugrabi claimed that the housekeeper in question attacked her and stole pairs of designer shoes.

To add insult to injury, according to Mugrabi, she was “roughly mistreated” by local police officers.

She said she returned from a vacation on July 31 to see the domestic workers who ran the house, according to the Post.

Mugrabi stated that Latin American workers “should have been working in my house but not living in my house. The night I got home, a lady was in my guest room; they were supposed to have let her go. I went to the bathroom, I saw her and I was terrified.

Asking the housekeeper to leave, Mugrabi claims she began “throwing things at me” including a cell phone and “the bottom of a stringy mop” as well as a Bible.

Mugrabi said the domestic worker was ‘screaming like crazy’.

She then claims that she went to her room, locked the door, and called the housekeeper an Uber after her handyman convinced her to vacate the premises.

Mugrabi added. ‘He complained that he had no cash. I gave him $500 or $600 from my wallet. She just wanted him to go… They took her to Brooklyn. It cost me $268. Also, she had my vintage ballet flats, Chanel shoes, and Balenciaga shoes in her bag.

The socialite argues that she would “never hit someone”. I am not physically aggressive. I am aggressive with my voice. Everything she said I did to her, she did to me.

Mugrabi’s mother also claimed to have seen the housekeeper take charge when she visited her in July, while her daughter was away.

Scher said of the workers: ‘They were in the pool and hot tub and they didn’t even give me a cup of coffee. I thought they had a better life than me.

Mugrabi said he had taken the workers out of his house on August 9.

The fight allegedly broke out on July 31 after his housekeeper complained about the money Mugrabi owed him.

Southampton Town police said the fight ended when Mugrabi “forcibly and unlawfully” evicted the now former employee.

Mugrabi was released without bail after her appearance at Southampton City Justice Court, a source told the outlet.

“Libbie Mugrabi is a pillar of our community and a law-abiding citizen,” Marianne Bertuna of Aidala Bertuna & Kamins said in a statement.

A source close to Libbie, whose bitter divorce was called a separation

A source close to Libbie, whose acrimonious divorce was called the “nastiest” separation in New York City, said her ex-husband David (pictured) stopped paying their bills.

The evidence will show that she is innocent of all these charges. We hope this matter will be quickly dismissed in its entirety.”

Mugrabi’s friends said she denies the charges, with a Hamptons friend snorting: “Libbie is innocent of the claims she is accused of.”

The mother of two, whose 13-year marriage to art world scion David Mugrabi collapsed in July 2018 after she caught him naked with another woman, is currently reinventing herself as a philanthropist and designer.

Their acrimonious divorce reportedly saw her walk away with $100 million.

The exact details of the deal have never been disclosed, and the Mugrabi family, which owns the largest private collection of Andy Warhols in the world, is worth an estimated $5 billion.

Mugrabi settled her divorce with her art collector ex-husband in December 2020, but compared herself to the late Princess of Wales during their tumultuous split.

“I went through the same thing as her: I married young,” Mugrabi said in a 2021 interview with The New York Post.

“They told him what to do and what to wear,” he said.

The couple are seen above in New York City in April 2018. They were married for 13 years before the acrimonious split in December 2020.

Libbie accused David of physically assaulting her when he caught her trying to remove a $500,000 Keith Haring sculpture (above) outside her home.

After the divorce, Mugrabi said he would use part of his settlement to sponsor the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, supporting its Fashion in Motion programme, which was due to be canceled due to cost-cutting following the pandemic.

Mugrabi told Tatler that the show’s entertainment would be the “perfect companion” for a post-marriage divorcee.

Mugrabi said his dream for Fashion in Motion is to make it similar to the annual Met Gala in New York, which raises millions for the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

In September 2020, Mugrabi’s billionaire husband was reported to have stopped paying his bills, resulting in the socialite not paying her rent.

Mugrabi also claimed that antidepressants had affected his judgment during the divorce settlement, and that he had not realized that he had accepted “only $79,000 a month in child support.”

Mugrabi said she needed the full $98,000 a month she was receiving before an agreement was reached, to support her and her estranged husband’s children in the lifestyle they are accustomed to.

In July this year, Mugrabi claimed her Ibiza hotel suite was ransacked and thieves made off with $500,000 worth of jewelry, bikinis and hats.

Mugrabi was born to a plastic surgeon mother and father and grew up between New Jersey and Florida, where his parents had a house a few doors down from Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago.

Mugrabi's daughter poses in front of one of the family's many Andy Warhol paintings, said to be the world's largest collection of the pop artist's work.

Mugrabi's son stands in front of Christopher Wool's highly coveted 1988 work Apocalypse Now, which last sold in 2013 at auction for just over $26 million.

The mother-of-two, whose 13-year marriage to art world scion David Mugrabi collapsed in July 2018, wanted to stay in the marriage until her children turned 18, but David produced the papers.

She was 22 years old and vacationing in Aspen, Colorado, when she met David, the youngest son of Israeli business magnate Joseph Mugrabi and his wife Mary.

The couple enjoyed the good life together and at one point had ‘a big mansion in New York City…a big mansion in the Hamptons, cars were coming out of my nose.

A chef, a driver, three babysitters, three cleaners and probably 30 vacations a year,’ he previously said.

The morning after a Fourth of July party in 2018, Mugrabi claimed she woke up to find her husband naked and asleep on top of a brunette guest, who was also naked. The house guest later claimed that “nothing sexual” happened.

Divorce papers were filed, ending their 13-year marriage. Mugrabi said the couple spent about $3 million a year.

Mugrabi also accused David of physically assaulting her when he caught her trying to remove a $500,000 Keith Haring sculpture from her home. The New York Supreme Court heard that the incident was reported to the police, but David was never arrested.

Bitter exchanges between the couple, who married in 2005, a year after they met at The St Regis Hotel in Aspen, Colorado, led to the fight being dubbed “New York’s nastiest divorce.”

The couple have two children together, Mary and Joseph, who are believed to be around 15 and 13 years old.

David’s Syrian family is worth an estimated $5 billion and are legends in the art world, with the world’s largest private collection of Andy Warhol works.
