Missing Florida millionaire Guma Aguiar’s mother Ellen Aguiar (left) and wife Jamie Aguiar (right) are in a heated legal battle over Guma Aguiar’s fortune, valued at more than $100 million.
June 28, 2012
Missing Florida millionaire Guma Aguiar specified in a handwritten note on a 2011 legal filing obtained by ABCNews.com that he objected to the appointment of his wife “to serve in any capacity” over his person or property.
The instructions from Aguiar, written in July 2011, surfaced in the midst of a vicious legal battle between his mother and wife over control of his $100 million fortune. After five legal filings in just one week, a Florida judge will decide today who gets control of the millionaire’s assets.
Guma Aguiar, 35, vanished last Wednesday when his 31-foot fishing boat washed up on a Fort Lauderdale beach with the engine running and lights on, but with no sign of its Brazilian-born owner.
In the days following Aguiar’s disappearance, his wife Jamie Aguiar and mother Ellen Aguiar filed three legal documents fighting for control of his assets.
Today, hours before a court hearing to decide who will be appointed conservator, each woman made another legal move slinging insults in two new legal filings obtained by ABCNews.com.
Aguiar’ss body has not been found and there has been no proof that he is dead.
“The evidence will show that the Counter-Petition was the only way for Jamie Aguiar to protect the interests of herself and her children from what is sadly the latest in a long line of Ellen Aguiar’s pervasive, persistent, and ill-advised attempts to disrupt the home life of Jamie, Guma, and their children and seize control of their finances,” Jamie Aguiar’s attorney William Scherer wrote in a filing on her behalf.
Ellen Aguiar’s attorney Richard Baron fired back in a responding filing: “The Counter Petitioner [Jamie Aguiar] threatened the Absentee with divorce which drove him to the mental instability which led directly to his disappearance and then has the unmitigated gall to act as the grieving widow. Nothing could be further from the truth.”
Ellen Aguiar’s filing included as evidence Guma Aguiar’s power of attorney document, which was signed on July 1, 2011.
In the document, he revoked all of his previous powers of attorney, adding in a handwritten clause, “Specifically, I revoke all powers of attorney that I have given to my wife, Jamie Aguiar aka Jamie Black Aguiar, to act in any way on by behalf. I further OBJECT [emphasis his] to the appointment of my wife Jamie Black Aguiar, aka Jamie Aguiar, to serve in any capacity as guardian of my person and/or property, or to have authority to act on my behalf. At the present time my wife and I are in conflict and her interests are adverse to my interests.”
Court records show that Guma Aguiar filed for divorce from Jamie Aguiar in July 2011, but the couple did not go through with the divorce.
Ellen Aguiar’s attorneys insist that Guma Aguiar’s wishes were clear and pointed to an even more recent filing Guma made.
“The fact that the Absentee revoked Jamie’s designation as his pre-need guardian and substituted his mother in May of this year (2012) further supports the conclusion that the Absentee does not want Jamie Aguiar handling his assets.”
“Apparently the Absentee foresaw these events,” Ellen Aguiar’s filing said, referring to Jamie Aguiar’s behavior.
Jamie Aguiar’s attorneys insist that her actions have only been in response to her mother-in-law’s initial move to gain control, saying the legal battle has brought added stress on her and her family. The filing calls Ellen Aguiar “someone who can only kindly be described as an overly intrusive mother-in-law.”
