Simon Barney has been making headlines lately as his custody battle with ex-wife and Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge rages on. Barney has claimed that Judge is an unfit mother and is fighting for full custody of their three children; Sidney, Spencer and Sophia. But an insider is revealing new, EXCLUSIVE details about Simon’s long-time girlfriend, Catushia Ienni, who is 20 years younger than Barney.
A reader posted on The Dirty in 2011 that Simon’s younger girlfriend is already married! “Someone with the same uncommon name as Simon’s GF got married in Vegas last June, two months before Simon allegedly started dating her. I ran the groom’s surname through Ancestry.com and privateeye.com with zero hits. What’s up with that? Was Catushia drunk when she got married? roofied? The groom’s name is sorta Mexican, maybe he needed a green card. DOES SIMON KNOW???” a poster claimed, along with the screenshot below of a marriage record.
But not only is Simon’s girlfriend allegedly already married, an insider EXCLUSIVELY tells us more details of the couple’s strange relationship.
“Catushia is 20 years younger than Simon and is known to hook up with older men,” our insider alleges. “He met her at a bar one night when she was drinking all alone. She moved in with Simon four years ago and does not work. Simon controls her, tells her what to wear and even when she can leave the house.”
“She’s very strange to talk to and Simon doesn’t take her in public often, he even leaves her at home when he travels. And she weirdly looks a lot like Simon’s oldest daughter,” the source adds.
“She is obsessed with reality TV and wants what Tamra has,” the insider claims. “She has been accused of talking badly about Tamra to the children in hopes that the kids will call her mommy one day.”
“Here’s the funniest part,” our source continues. “She’s friends with Gretchen Rossi’s ex-boyfriend Jay Photoglou.”
“Is this someone that is setting a good example for Simon’s children?” our insider asks.
