Ex-wife of Kevin Spacey’s manager doesn’t want her their kids to interact with the actor

The ex-wife of actor Kevin Spacey’s manager and confidant has asked a Florida judge to change the visitation schedule with their four children because she doesn’t want the kids, aged seven to 15, to ‘interact’ with the star of House of Cards, DailyMailTV learned.

Evan Lowenstein, 44, a former boy-bander who has become Spacey’s behind-the-scenes handler, is supposed to see his children every third weekend and on Jewish holidays, according to their 2015 divorce settlement agreement.

However, ex-wife Kassini Lowenstein now says she wants children Ayla, 15, Kole, 13, Sheyn, 10 and seven-year-old Liam to see their father even less.

‘The former husband works with Kevin Spacey,’ her petition reads. 

‘However, given the recent allegations, the former wife asked that the former husband not allow the minor children to interact with him (Spacey). The former husband has refused.’

The petition refers to allegations of sexual wrongdoing that has cost the two-time Oscar winner Spacey’s gig on the final season of the successful political drama House of Cards.

One of the first high-profile entertainers brought down by the inception of the #MeToo movement, the actor, 59, was arraigned last week in Nantucket, Massachusetts, on one count of indecent assault and battery. He has pleaded not guilty.

Spacey is accused of sticking his hand downs the pants of a busboy, the 18-year-old son of well-known former Boston TV news anchor Heather Unruh, at the popular island watering-hole Club Car in July 2016.

According to published report, Lowenstein, a talent manager with no other client, was out with Spacey that night. He is expected to be a witness if the case goes to trial.

An Orthodox Jew from the Boca Raton area of Florida who made a name for himself as half of the Evan & Jaron identical twins singing duo, Lowenstein has been attached at Spacey’s hip since he took over the thespian’s career in 2016.

Lowenstein is believed to have been behind the bizarre Let Me Be Frank video that Spacey released last month in which he appears to be channeling his evil President Frank Underwood character. 

According to Lowenstein’s divorce papers obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com, the talent manager is making bank with Spacey. 

He made $2,536,437.86 in 2017 compared to $132,000 before he started working for the American Beauty star.

In 2017, according to court records, he missed 22 overnight stays with the children

In fact, Lowenstein is making so much money with Spacey that wife Kassini, a full-time homemaker whose income was $2,000 in 2017, also asked the judge to increase the $8,632-a-month that Evan agreed to pay in child support when their divorce was final in 2015.

In the nine-page petition to amend the settlement, Lowenstein’s ex claims Evan has been more concerned with his work for Spacey than his family, and is neglecting their children.

‘Since the date of the final judgment,’ the petition reads, ‘the former husband has failed to exercise any parental responsibility regarding health care and educational decisions.’

In 2017, according to court records, he missed 22 overnight stays with the children.

He failed, she claims, to attend all but two of the children’s 73 medical appointments between January and October 2018.

Nor does he follow up with prescribed medical care for them, refusing to give one of the children his daily growth hormones injections and refusing to take another one who broke his wrist in a snowboarding accident to the doctor, she claims. 

‘The consistent failure of [Lowenstein] to exercise timesharing is harming the emotional wellbeing of the minor children, particularly the parties’ sons. 

‘They are consistently let down when he fail to spend time with them,’ the petition states.

Evan is also accused of allowing the children to stay in hotel rooms unattended. She claims that the youngest, seven years old, burned himself while playing with matches alone.

And when the children come home, the ex-wife says in court papers, they say things to her like ‘Mommy is a leech and just lives off Dad’s money’ and ‘Dad gives you more money than he has’ and ‘Dad pays you more than his employees.’

‘The reality is the former husband is not capable of shared parental responsibility,’ the petition reads.

Lowenstein started managing Spacey’s career after the actor shocked Hollywood with the firing of his then-manager of 28 years, Joanne Horowitz.

Then, according Hollywood Reporter, Lowenstein methodically removed other long-time members of Spacey’s team.

Lowenstein started appearing in public with the 12-time Emmy nominee at the 2016 Emmys and U.S. Open tennis matches about the same time in New York.

With twin brother Jaron Lowenstein, Evan had a minor musical hit in 2000 with ‘Crazy for This Girl.’ It peaked at No. 15 of the Billboard Top 100.

Neither he nor his ex-wife returned calls and texts for comment
