Julia Haart’s daughter cries in court over Silvio Scaglia

The daughter of My Unorthodox Life star Julia Haart broke down in tears on Friday as she told a judge how she found her mother naked and sobbing on the bathroom floor after her husband Silvio Scaglia yelled at her.

Daughter Miriam Haart wept during a Manhattan Supreme Court video hearing in the Haart-Scaglia divorce case, during which she testified about a January 2021 dispute at the couple’s $65 million downtown triplex.

Miriam told the judge that she heard Scaglia’s screams through her headphones on the floor below before finally going downstairs to see her mother after Scaglia resigned.

“I ran to my mother,” Miriam testified. “I saw her lying naked on the floor crying hysterically.”

“I ran to her. I hugged her,” the 22-year-old daughter said as tears came to her eyes.

“I held her. I tried to calm her down. A few moments later, Silvio reappeared in the bathroom. He seemed really angry and even more so because I was there.

“I felt really bad. My mom told me to go and I ran out of the room and ran back upstairs just crying.”

Miriam said the couple’s relationship began to develop during the pandemic when their four children came to live in their home. The daughter said things came to a head in January 2021.

“This month has been really awful,” said Miriam. “I was at home and it was full of Silvio who kept yelling at my mother.”

Miriam recalled hearing Silvio once say that she would have become addicted to drugs if Haart had not met him as a former member of the Orthodox Jewish community.

“He said all the Orthodox people in the community would become addicts, and without him she would have become addicted,” Miriam said.

The daughter said she also overheard her stepfather once yelling at her mother, “Put yourself down.”

Miriam confirmed that the Netflix film crew – which began filming the reality show’s second season – had documented some of the breakups, including filming Scaglio moving boxes from the triplex in early February and filming comments from Miriam about the divorce her mother.

The daughter said the film crew also caught the aftermath of their February 14 discovery that two expensive paintings had disappeared from the walls of the apartment and that a lock on the apartment door had been picked. The daughter said she later learned that two of Scaglia’s workers had removed the art.

Scaglia’s attorney, Robert Wallack, interrogated Miriam about her seemingly close relationship with Scaglia, showing her numerous text exchanges she had with her stepfather, saying, “I love you.” And messages from a trip to Dominica to see sperm whales swim that Scaglia took Miriam on.

“You told him you loved him. Was that true?” Wallack asked.

“No… I didn’t love him. But I was nice to him and tried to get there,” she replied.

Miriam later clarified that her mother had asked her to keep the peace with Scaglia so that she would remain polite in her messages.

Later on Friday, Haart – clad in a gray sweater and seemingly without makeup – began testifying about how she began speaking to a divorce lawyer in January 2021 before eventually hiring one in December.

Haart told the judge that last January Scaglia “was very keen to move out because he didn’t want the kids around.”

“The family situation was bad, but he was very happy with what I was doing at work. So it was kind of a mixed bag,” Haart said.

Haart – who married Scaglia in June 2019 – filed for divorce on February 9 after firing her as CEO of his company Elite World Group.

Scaglia then filed a lawsuit against Haart, alleging that she used company money to pay for expensive clothing, handbags, travel, hair, makeup and breast surgeries. He also accused her of taking $850,000 from the company account on the day he was fired. She has denied the allegations.

The estranged couple are also feuding over ownership of the downtown apartment.
