CSI Creator's Wife

You Cancelled My Black Card!

10/23/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The estranged wife of the creator of the "CSI" shows -- who is embroiled in an epic divorce -- has learned a truism first hand ... once you go black, you can never go back.

Jennifer Zuiker claims hubby Anthony Zuiker shut down her American Express Black Card.  For those of you who aren't acquainted, it's something you will never have in your lifetime.

In the divorce docs obtained by TMZ ... Jennifer claims she had been regularly charging $40,000 - $60,000 per month on the Black Card, and now she's SOL -- left with a MasterCard with a measly $25k limit. FYI, with a Black Card, there's no limit, but cardholders must spend a minimum of $250,000 a year. That's not a typo.

But Anthony says, though his lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, "Petitioner's concern is that she will no longer have a black Centurion Card to use because it is a status symbol." Priceless.

And it only gets better. Jennifer wanted Anthony to foot the $181,381 bill for the Alexander McQueen clothing bill he refused to pay for more than a year. It was the Fall, 2010 collection ... stupid.

It appears from court docs the parties have now settled this beef, but the divorce is still bitter and ongoing.

Rich people's problems. Very, very rich.

Time to earn your own money, cow. If one spouse is a main earner it should be made law that the other could get a maximum of 100k out of it from a divorce. It is time to take away the power from greedy lazy women.

****. Id be happy just being able to spend $1,000. Thats not a typo. On disability I collect less than $12,000 a year. I couldnt imagine being able to spend $250,000 a year.

She should find a nice job and earn some money and maybe she'll discover that there's no life without work. Yeah right!

"...she had been regularly charging $40,000 - $60...,000 per month on the Black Card..."

OK, stop right there. Someone needs to bitchslap this woman, and then tell her to get a job. I'm pretty sure she doesn't earn the money she's giving away like it's halloween candy; imagine her horrifying fall back to earth when she realizes that MONEY ISN'T FREE; you actually have to earn it...

What´s wrong with these women??! Knowing the situation in the world today, with so many people starving or struggling to get money on the table every day this attitude pisses me off. Zuiker is obviously a smart genius having come up with such a successful concept - but I am sure he has worked his *** off making it happen. He deserves his fortune. Jennifer should go out and get a job and stop whining.

There's a problem here    

Why is it these people live mega lives for mega bucks then will practically kill themselves because of the agony of not having carte blanche thousands and thousands of dollars at a toss? Screw you lady and everyone who looks like you. Try living like the rest of us peons. I'm betting even with struggling we're 100 X happier than you could ever be.

The difference between a hooker and a gold digging wife? The hooker actually puts out for the money she gets.
