And, to make matters worse, Blumenfeld’s former business partner Ron Caplan has threatened to collect on a defaulted loan to the tune of $37 million, though Blumenfeld’s lawyer challenges Caplan’s authority to do so.

Developer Eric Blumenfeld–who now owns the Divine Lorraine and will apparently do the same NOTHING with it that everyone else has–is having a bad couple of years. His father, who held the key to his credibility, passed away. He’s been going through an ugly divorce. He’s out of his Gladwyne mansion, where he kept his expensive car collection, and has been seen around town in an unflattering hat that looks like this one.
