Billionaire bond king Bill Gross used stinky sprays to leave the place a stinking mess — and that dead fish in the vents, a “disgusted” Sue Gross claimed in the courtroom papers.
The bitter divorce battle between the billionaire bond king Bill Gross and his ex-wife starts to stink — such as vomiting, flatulence and dead fish.
The California moneyman, who lost his beloved 13,819-square-foot Laguna Beach home for his ex-wife in the break, use smelly sprays to leave the place a stinking mess — and that dead fish in the vents, a “disgusted” Sue Gross claimed in court papers last week.
Mrs. Gross, who won a temporary restraining order against the Bill last week, has the proof of his foul play — empty spray bottles in the garbage cans, court papers claim.
Bill Gross left the house, worth a staggering $36 million, “in a state of total chaos and decay,” court papers filed in Los Angeles state court of claim.
Bill’s reign of terror not only are malodorous moves, but his use of an “army of spies” to carry out “non-stop monitoring” of Sue and her family, it is claimed.
Sue sought to clear the air over the olfactory offensive.
“The house smelled dirty and need to be replaced,” she added, noting that a “substantial amount of time and money” was needed for the recovery of the property.
Included in the court filing of his photos show the alleged spray bottles behind the putrid smells — as well as the photos which allegedly caused water damage in six bedrooms, eight bathrooms home. There were also photos of the severed cord to a treadmill and an art installation of cats with their facial features scratches.
The smelly sprays, Bill Gross relied on the house where he lost to his ex-wife, according to a new lawsuit.

A security company hired by Bill constantly monitored Sue, her two sisters and her deputy, the make of Sue’s life a complete nightmare,” it is claimed.
“I am exhausted and overwhelmed by this ubiquitous interference, and am hurt that my loved ones have been the victim of harassment for no other reason than their relationship with me,” Sue said in court documents.
The order of protection was first reported by The Blast.
The former lovebirds have now for him and her, grim. Bill got a TRO against Sue in November — weeks after their divorce was finalized — after telling a judge that he was concerned about Sue’s “erratic behavior” and “threat of violence” a source told The Post.
Approximately 100 pages of text messages said to be between the employees of the security company accompanied Sue to the court. The messages, from September 2017 to April, detail the coming and going of the homes of Sue, her family and her friends.
A source close to Bill Gross denied the house was abandoned in the war.
In addition, the security was hired for the house after Sue often appeared unannounced at the house and took items, the source said.
Among the items that Sue took was a 1932 Pablo Picasso painting valued at € 36.9 million, entitled “Le Repos” — the result of the split of assets in the divorce.
The painting hung, it is believed, in Bill Gross’ bedroom.
Then leave bare space on the wall, Sue to replace the Picasso with a replica they are painted, according to the November testimony.
The Post reported last month that Gross was wroth when he heard of Sue’s alleged switcheroo.
“Bill was shocked Sue already had the piece,” a source told The Post last month, adding that Bill said: “She has the damn thing.”
The couple’s divorce is finalized Oct. 6.
