The mistress of a late Mercedes-Benz dealer got dressed down in court yesterday after she told reps for his former company: “I hope your children die of cancer.”
Emel Dilek, 34, went off on two lawyers and the CFO of Watson Enterprises in a courtroom cafeteria before Day 2 of a trial at which she’s suing to collect on a $120,000-a-year employment contract she inked with married lover Ronald Pecunies shortly before he died at age 80.
After one of the lawyers revealed her tirade, Manhattan federal Judge Paul Oetken asked to whom the invective was directed.
“To all three, yes,” Dilek proudly interjected.
“I’m going to instruct your counsel to take control of [you],” Oetken said.
Also yesterday, the lawyer who drafted Dilek’s deal testified about an e-mail she sent two days after Pecunies’ 2010 death, in which she asked about cashing in on the contract without returning to work.
