LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Benjamin Benalloul, Sonja Morgan’s boyfriend 2014 and John Adams Morgan, Sonja Morgan’s ex-husband, heats up the RHONY premiere. But only expect one of the men to make an appearance. Sonja Morgan’s ex-husband, John Adams Morgan (photos below), dominates the RHONY storyline last season. Sonja Morgan rarely if ever refers to her ex-husband by name. But John Adams Morgan, descended from John Pierpoint Morgan and John Adams, was the centerpiece of last season’s storyline for Sonja. She penned up about her ex-husband to news, spoke more about her bankruptcy, and discussed that money judgment. But tonight, who is Sonja dating? Benjamin Benalloul is revealed as Sonja’s new boyfriend 2014.
Last season, we left Sonja explaining to news which type of bankruptcy she pursued. “I filed the Chapter 11 to restructure my assets to satisfy my movie business judgment and to move on with what’s left after hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees, in all cases being paid by myself”.
Sonja and ex-husband John Adams Morgan battled last season, but off camera. Sonja, by exposition, would have to explain the feuds not recorded by Bravo. She told news “I was so angry because I wanted closure with my ex above all else and was willing to give up a lot in my settlement financially to keep my daughter in her childhood home.” She also told news “When I didn’t get my face-to-face with him, and a fair way to do that (not even close, according to my lawyers), I was angry. It’s been so long that I have been working and supporting so much on my own beyond what child support can do. My assets and cash are tied up in this divorce and I want what is rightfully mine, and to be independent again so I can move on.”
What happened to Sonja’s debts? In November 2010, LALATE first detailed the bankruptcy. Morgan sought bankruptcy claiming $13.5 million in assets at $19.8 million in debts. She cited money troubles from a $7 million court judgment. She lost a case brought against her Sonja Productions in California. The suit, filed by Hannibal Pictures, was concerning the film “Fast Flash to Bang Time”. The film was to star John Travolta. It was never made.
Sonja told news that John Adams was a large part of her life. “We were married 10 years and knew each other for seven years before. It’s a large chunk of my existence! As the woman who loved her man dearly, I think I deserve that respect as the mother of such an amazing little girl. I was a good mom and wife.”
By 2012, Sonja Morgan and Ryan Serhant were dating. And a year later, she was moving on, to someone much younger than Ryan. IN 2013, she told news that she didn’t know that her new boyfriend was only 23. “I didn’t know! [how young he was],” Sonja told Celebrity Buzz. “He doesn’t act immature at all. He’s ageless. I’ve known him for a long time. I run into his family all the time with his friends and my friends. We run in the same circles.”
Tonight Heather Thomson says of Sonja “Sonja has as many men as she has interns and some of them are the same age.”
