• Annulment agreement between Alan Grayson, estranged wife falls apart

    Updated:

    ORLANDO, Fla. - Congressman Alan Grayson and his estranged wife, Lolita, were back in court Monday after a tentative agreement fell apart.

    The last time the two were in court, both sides thought they were hours away from an agreement. Grayson signed the agreement but his wife did not.

    Grayson, who graduated from Harvard University in three years, got a law degree and Ph.D., and made millions suing defense contractors, isn’t happy.

    Lolita Grayson is accused of not getting a divorce from her first husband before marrying Grayson in 1990.

    "I'll sum it up for you. Gold diggers gotta dig. That's all I gotta say," Grayson said on Monday. "We had an agreement. She's trying to renege."

    Lolita Grayson could only laugh when Channel 9's Kathi Belich asked about her husband's statement.

    At the last hearing, Lolita Grayson admitted to bigamy. The two were then close to a financial deal, but she arrived to court with her fifth lawyer on Monday and her incoming sixth lawyer.

    "Why did you decide to hire another lawyer this far down the road?" asked Belich.

    "I'm sorry, no comment," said Greg Lewen, her new attorney.

    Lolita, the mother of Grayson's five children, filed for divorce last year with accusations of affairs, domestic violence, which video showed was untrue, and stories about the couple's sex life. 

    Alan Grayson has had to pay for all of his estranged wife's attorneys so far.

    The two could make their annulment official by the end of the week.

    Alan Grayson's attorney said he's going to ask the judge to enforce the deal the Graysons came to last month.
