Jennifer Dulos, a Connecticut mother-of-five, remains missing after six months, and her estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, still claims he had nothing to do with her disappearance. Jennifer’s mother, Gloria Farber, has filed a lawsuit against Dulos, claiming that he failed to pay back loans that her late husband granted him to start his real estate business. However, Dulos’ lawyer claims Farber’s intention was really to drain him financially so he wouldn’t be able to see his kids, according to The Advocate.
The lawsuit that was filed by Farber’s legal team is for a whopping $2.5 million. Now, Dulos is trying to turn the tables, claiming that it’s actually Farber who owes him money. He is requesting repayment to the tune of $1 million. One of Dulos’ lawyers, William Murray, revealed this in a new statement issued on Thursday. He also accused Farber of trying to further damage Dulos’ reputation and that this whole lawsuit was a big scheme.
“This was part of a concerted plan to drain [Fotis] Dulos of funds, tarnish his reputation and ultimately restrict his access to his five children,” he alleged.

Farber’s legal team responded to this claim, pointing out how ridiculous this statement seems given the current circumstances. Farber’s attorney, Richard Weinstein, pointed out that Farber has been caring for the children ever since her daughter’s disappearance.
“How could any reasonable person expect Gloria Farber to make gifts to Fotis Dulos after he was unfaithful to her daughter, involved in a contentious divorce, implicated in criminal proceedings surrounding Jennifer’s disappearance and where Gloria Farber alone is and has been paying for the care of the five Dulos children?”
Jennifer disappeared this past May and the children, ranging in age from 8-years-old to 13-years-old, have been living with Farber in her New York City apartment. Jennifer was last seen on May 24, dropping off her children at school. She was officially declared a missing person later that day. Law enforcement discovered Jennifer’s blood on her garage floor, but found no sign of the mother.
Police now believe that Jennifer was a victim of a surprise attack in her own home and that Dulos waited for her to come home that day and assaulted her. They also believe that he was assisted by his former girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, with disposing of Jennifer’s body.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, both Dulos and Troconis have been charged with tampering with evidence and interfering with the investigation.
