Wayne Newton's Wife: Get Your Mitts Off My Stuff

3/5/2010 7:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Wayne Newton's wife is trying to separate herself from her husband's major money issues -- she just made a legal move to keep her stuff from being seized by a man who Wayne owes in a big way.

TMZ obtained court documents filed by Kathleen McCrone Newton in which she declares that all sorts of stuff she keeps at Wayne's Las Vegas estate -- like art, clothes, jewelry, instruments and even a library -- are hers ... and hers alone.

In the docs, filed Tuesday in Nevada, Kathleen claims she's staking claim to all of her crap because Wayne's former pilot Monty Ward is trying to collect a $500,000 judgement against the singer -- and just last week, Ward sent a moving truck over to Newton's place to try and collect Wayne's assets.

Now, Kathleen wants to make sure Monty doesn't take her crap away when Ward's truck comes back to collect again ... whenever that may be.

Too funny. Another one of those celebrities you fawners think is rolling in cash and is enviable. He does not have an ongoing contract that keeps his lifestyle maintained and has a loooong history of money troubles.

A hint...if they live rich, they probably are not (Even if you make $25 million, you are lucky to net half of that and with his expenses - forget it). They spend everything they make and if you do that you will eventually hit the wall. He has a number of people coming after him for millions and is at the end of his career road. Any clue how much his house costs to keep running...ouch.

Another loser...

I knew Wayne from the time that I was a very young child. I was around him a great deal back in the early to mid-90s. I met Kathleen when they were dating & was around her many times. The worst decision Wayne ever made was to marry her. Her father was a judge in Cleveland, I think it was Cleveland. She became a lawyer but didn't practice long. Dad died, she latched on to Wayne after meeting him in LV. Poor uneducated Wayne thinks she is brilliant because she was an attorney. Believe me, there are stupid attorneys in the world...I used to work with several. She & her mother who is an old drunk moved to Wayne's house....supposedly she didn't "live" with him. Had to protect her reputation & that of her family....didn't want to have sex with him is more like it. She got rid of his long-term manager who had been with him forever. She has repeatedly given him horrible legal advice. She is all about the "image" & appearance of money. Wayne does take care of her whole family. Momma & sister lived with them too. Kathleen is a plastic surgery addict & really doesn't look too much like she did before she met Wayne. Nor does Wayne, since she insisted on the early facial surgeries for Wayne. Now he looks like an orangutan. She is not a nice person, & she is as fake as her plastic face. Kat didn't care for his daughter, Erin, & didn't want her hanging their relationship has been very rocky for the last 17 years or so. They now have a very young adopted daughter who will be massively screwed up someday.

Wayne is a nice man, but he has always been plagued with money problems...because he has an "image" to uphold. He is ALL about his image. The lengths he will go to make himself appear to be so in-demand & important is so ridiculous & unbelieveable...even with people in the entertainment industry. He will sit at home by himself just to "appear" that he is too busy & important to socialize or attend a function. He is just busy, busy, busy...& so in demand!!! He lives WAAAYYY beyond his means just to create this image for the public. He was bankrupt in 1993 or 1994 & was in debt over $13 million back then. His career was on the downhill slide back then. The showroom is never full. Why do you think he is hustling up for Dancing with the Stars & bit parts in movies/reality shows being himself. The decor of the house is Liberace hideous, the properties that are inside the walls or across the street are derelict. I believe this Monty because people were all the time after Wayne for big money. Sometimes, just like the Kennedys, he & Kat think that the hired help should just be grateful to work for the Newtons...forget the employee's pay...give 'em a signed photo like Ethel Kennedy would do. Really, it's so sad to see someone deteriorate because of pride & vanity.

First of all, Kat is NOT an attorney, as she claims. She never passed the bar in Ohio, or Nevada. Yes, I heard that she is a very rude person. Wayne not only married her as a piece of jewelry on his arm, but there also came a lot of excess baggage. She's had a lot of plastic surgery done for sure.

Wayne Newton is a woman, everyone knows that. What she just has to stop is wearing those corsets which are so obvious but she doesn't see it like that.
