Stephanie Adams — Playboy’s Miss November 1992 — is so afraid of her estranged husband that their meetings will be held at a police district. Charles Nicolai, the owner of Wall Street Chiropractic & Wellness, has visitation rights for their son, Vince, 7, and the couple comes to the First District in Tribeca for the transfer.
Adams, who modeled for Wilhelmina and Elite, declined to comment. But a friend said to me, “It makes for no violence takes place.”
The pinup’s lawyer Raoul Lionel Felder told me, “It’s not unusual. The kids love it. The police treat them as mascots.”
The use of the site is ironic. Adams sued the NYPD in 2006, claimed she was injured by police after a taxi driver falsely claimed she had a gun. A jury awarded her $ 1.2 million — nearly $400,000 more than her attorney had sought.
Adams used a portion of the money for the financing of Nicolai’s chiropractic center and the two other companies, but everything is Nicolai ‘s name, Adams’ friend said.
“There seems to be no limits as to how far this man will go to the acquisition of Stephanie’s wealth,” her friend said about the couple’s hardball divorce disputes.
Before marriage, Adams also made headlines in 2003 when she appeared as Playboy’s first lesbian centerfold. But, in 2009, she was engaged to Nicolai.
Nicolai’s lawyer, William Beslow, declined to comment.
