An attorney who is in the midst of a divorce from CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40/R WKTU/NEW YORK personality DIANE PRIOR has been charged with violating a restraining order and harassing her by allegedly posting a video of her on a MYSPACE Web page, reports THE DAILY RECORD, which writes "JOHN PARAGANO, 43, and now living in BRICK TOWNSHIP, said MONDAY that he was arrested at home by police at 11:30p SUNDAY, and posted $5,000 bail to be released. He was charged by CHESTER TOWNSHIP police with posting a video titled "Superdiva Meltdown" on a MYSPACE Web page on MARCH 25th."
"The video consists of selected portions of a deposition that PRIOR gave as part of her divorce action against PARAGANO," continued THE RECORD. "The criminal complaint says the video that appeared on MYSPACE consisted of 'the most emotional, personal and embarrassing portions' of testimony given by her.
"PARAGANO, in a phone interview MONDAY, said he never had a MYSPACE page and had nothing to do with the posting of a video. He said he has no idea of its contents but that he did see, via video-teleconferencing, the deposition that PRIOR gave to his divorce lawyer, while her own lawyer was present.
"PRIOR could not be reached for comment. Her matrimonial attorney, WILLIAM LAUFER, said PARAGANO had to post the video because only he and the two divorce attorneys had copies of it."
