With the all of the animosity surrounding how Ellen Barkin was given the heave-ho by her ex, Ron Perelman, you'd think he'd be smart enough to keep his distance. According to Page Six, the CEO of Revlon approached his former missus at the Waverly Inn and she wasn't happy:
Barkin, who loathes her ex and sold off all the jewelry he gave her for $21 million last month, was refilling her water glass when she locked eyes with Perelman and warned, "Don't come any closer!"
When Perelman kept advancing on Barkin's table nonetheless, she shouted, "Please! Do not come any closer!" But Perelman kept coming, and according to our eyewitness, "leaned in as if to kiss [Barkin] on the cheek." That's when Barkin drenched him with a full glass of water.
The dripping Perelman asked his wife No. 4, "What did you do that for? That wasn't very nice." To which Barkin replied, "Really? Wifebeater!"
A Perelman friend told Page Six, "Ronald was not trying to kiss her - he was just trying to visit the men's room, and Ellen's table was right by the men's bathroom. There was no way around it."
Perelman's spokeswoman said, "It is pitiful that Ms. Barkin has fabricated a reason to justify an unprovoked assault on him."
But on her way out, Barkin looked over at Perelman's table, saw his dinner date Anna Chapman, and told the blond psychotherapist, "I feel sorry for you that you have to [bleep] him tonight."
