Forty-three year old belly- dancer, Dorothy McGurk, has learned just how expensive internet dancing can be. Receiving $850.00 in monthly alimony due to a disability, the Staten Island resident was hauled before a county judge by her husband, Brian McGurk, who caught her dancing act on her blog and who now claims his ex-wife’s disability has actually “slip-sided away.”
Not so fast countered the coryphée, the dancing was purely medicinal and therapy for injuries received in a 1997 car accident. Plus, her husband had no right to invade her privacy by scouring her dancing blog for incriminating photos.
Not sure, but Ms. McGurk’s case may have been hampered when she claimed in court that her doctor had prescribed belly dancing for her injuries, only to later see her doctor contradict that statement on the stand.
