Court papers filed by woman in alleged Springsteen affair

Ann Kelly says her husband deliberately chose to name The Boss in the case

The woman accused by her husband of having an affair with Bruce Springsteen has filed papers in New Jersey saying her husband deliberately chose a celebrity to name in the case.

Ann Kelly said in the 27-page court document that her husband Arthur is jealous and abusive, and says he accused her of the affair with Springsteen because “he and his attorney felt there could be ‘big money’ in this … because, true or not, the celebrity would want this to ‘go away.’ “

Arthur Kelly filed for divorce from his wife saying that she “committed adultery with one Bruce Springsteen … at various times and places too numerous to mention.”

His attorney, Edward Fradkin, told People.com that his client denies being abusive and jealous and said “It was not surprising that Ms. Kelly filed this document since she had previously threatened Mr. Kelly that she would do so unless he withdrew the second count of his Complaint for Divorce … Mr. Kelly has not commented to the press about his wife in the best interests of the children and in the hopes of resolving their marital problems amicably. Unfortunately, Ms. Kelly has decided to take a different path.”

Ann Kelly reportedly attended the same gym as The Boss in New Jersey.
