Judith Zackson is accused of bugging her then-husband's bedroom while they slept separately inside the glamorous TV shrink's $4 million Connecticut mansion when their marriage hit the rocks

Rich psychologist Judith Zackson split from husband Brad Zackson in May 2022Weeks earlier he found bug in his rooms in their mansion in Greenwich, CTBrad's boss claims it was a plot to extort money from his property firm

A famous TV psychologist bugged her ex-husband's room to allegedly extort money from his property developer boss, he claims.

Judith Zackson, who has appeared on CNN, CBS, and Fox News and is worth $4.4 million, split from her husband Brad Zackson in May 2022.

From 2020, as their marriage collapsed, they were living in separate rooms in their $4 million, six-bedroom, 7.5-bath, 6,727sqft mansion in Greenwich, Connecticut.

Brad only spotted the listening device in April 2022 when he saw a curious red light flashing in the bathroom ceiling. He filed for divorce within weeks.

Judith admitted to the eavesdropping during divorce proceedings, which are still ongoing, and is accused of recording his business calls for up to two years.

Now Brad's boss, Dynamic Star chief executive Gary Segal, claims in a lawsuit that Judith's plan all along was to blackmail his property firm.

'Dynamic Star and Ms Zackson have no financial relationship. Dynamic Star is fighting an ongoing vindictive, ugly campaign being waged by an ex-wife of a principal. We are confident court will see the truth,' the company said.

The complaint filed by Dynamic and Segal in Manhattan Supreme Court claimed Judith joked about getting 'a big check from Uncle Gary'.

'Dr Zackson cynically and secretly invaded Dynamic as a ploy in defense of a divorce action in Connecticut... in an attempt to extort money from Dynamic or Gary,' it claimed.

Judith's lawyer argued the claims were meritless and she only recorded Brad to 'protect herself from her spouse'.

The lawsuit claimed Judith hid recording devices in Brad's part of the mansion and recorded business calls in 2021 and 2022, and even put one in his car.

Dynamic is not seeking damages, just all copies of the recordings handed over to 'remove the threat to its existence'.

'Dr Zackson has been spying on Brad for years which means that Dr Zackson has been spying on [Dynamic] and its business affairs for years,' the lawsuit claimed.

Judith is claimed to have eavesdropped on calls between Brad and other Dynamic executives and its lawyers, as well as New York City officials and prospective investors.

'The scope of these transgressions is unknown. The number of recordings is unknown. The location of them is unknown. The disclosure or use of them is unknown,' the lawsuit claimed.

'Damages alone will not protect Dynamic. The business and real estate projects are or likely will be valued in the hundreds of millions of dollars, well beyond the ability of Dr Zackson to answer in money damages.

'There is no way to calculate the damage that she can cause to interpersonal relationships and business opportunities.'

Dynamic's business includes the $2.5 billion Fordham Landing development in the Bronx, beside the Harlem River.

However, the company is strapped for cash as its properties are 'underwater, and they could not refinance the debt due to the market', according to a Connecticut Superior Court document.

The filing claimed Brad couldn't afford to pay his legal fees as he was in $9 million debt, including $5.7 million to Segal, and hadn't filed a tax return since 2012.

Judith countered Dynamic's claim by arguing she never planned to extort money from Segal - she just needed it as insurance against Brad.

Brad was caught with a gun the same month he filed for divorce, which was illegal due to his 1983 felony convictions of robbery and criminal possession of a weapon in Nassau County.

He was also arrested twice in 2022 for breaching a restraining order.

'Mr Zackson has repeatedly violated a restraining order issued because of his abusive and threatening behavior, leading to two additional arrests,' Judith's lawyer told the New York Post.
