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.

celebritynetworth says Anthony Zuiker is worth $300 million and that sounds reasonable based on this story. Wow, that's a lot of money!

She's a golddigger? People are so quick to scream that. HE MARRIED HER. He gave her the Amex card. She was his wife. Give me a break! I understand the party will end with a divorce but that was her husband and whether you're poor or rich you spend each others money when you're married. He just happened to be the money maker. Men need to shut the hell up because I know a lot of women supporting their husbands these days because the losers don't work.

Let's get this straight, TMZ, I will never need nor want some bull shot card like that.

And going by the stories we hear about "them," for all the stuff "they" have that we average people don't--it doesn't seem to offer them much immunity from becoming miserable losers.

Although there's no picture of her, bet she's hideous looking like Jamie McCourt and Camille Grammer. Ugly ho's that would never have enough money to buy a Hyundai, but got lucky and railroaded some rich guy into marrying them.

Just to be clear, every person or business that has the "black card" (Centurion Card) DOES have a "charging" limit...remember the card is a charge card NOT a credit card and it is simply a myth that there is no limit. The card has to be offered to you from AMEX but there is a limit for each individual account and has to be paid off in full monthly. As long as you spend the $250,000 per year and pay your bill on time they will eventually offer it to you.

Okay, I get that they are wealthy and live a life style different from the rest of us little people but really, what the hell is she spending 40-60...k a month on? I might get that she has a big mortgage, staff costs, etc. but I don't get the big spending on a monthly basis. She should get her mortgage paid, her property taxes paid, one car payment paid and maybe 10k a month. Jesus, most of us can't afford the damn rent of a one bedroom apartment AND eat and she's bitching? Lady, pull your head out of your ass. You were not this man's success.

Still don't understand why all these Occupy Wallstreet demonstrators haven't focused on the Entertainment industry and all the excess and ridiculous expenses that they have going on. Russell Simmons is an idiot as is Kanye, Susan Sarandon and the rest of them. Russell Simmons makes more money than most of the Wall Street Execs and making money off overcharging for all of his products. I'm sure everyone would like to pay less at the movies, for CD's, clothing and all the other things these people make their millions off.
