Les Moonves languishes in mansions while granddaughter lives in roach-infested apartment

Former CBS chief Les Moonves languishes at a $28.8 million oceanfront mansion, a Beverly Hills estate worth around $20 million, and a Park Avenue apartment valued upwards of $10 million — while his baby granddaughter remains in a 500 square foot roach-ridden Chinatown hovel.

Page Six revealed that Moonves’ son Adam, 35, has an 11-month-old daughter, Ari, with former hospitality worker Gina DeMasi, but Adam — who does not have a full-time job and is an investor in Chinatown bar Mr. Fong’s — is paying just $2,500 a month in child support.

While Gina believes Adam has a trust fund or gets an allowance from his dad Les — worth $700 million — his family claims he has no income and $2,500 a month is all he can afford. However, Adam does reside in a nice two-bed apartment near Union Square, which he (or perhaps daddy) bought in 2017 for $1.8 million.

And even though Ari is Les’ first grandchild — while his wife Julie Chen has presented herself as a champion for women supporting other women — the disgraced media mogul doesn’t seem ready to step in.

Gina has lived in her Orchard Street apartment for a number of years while single, but it isn’t the place to raise a child. She says the building is infested with bugs, poorly maintained, and dripping water falling through the ceilings.

She continued, “The Moonves family seems to have a warped sense of reality about what my daughter needs. They have no problem spending hundreds of dollars on cashmere onesies, designer baby clothes from Bonpoint or Ralph Lauren for my daughter – that stuff is all for appearances. But they don’t want to talk about helping to get her into a cleaner, safer environment or discuss setting up a plan so she can be taken care of until she is 18.”

After Page Six and LawandCrime.com first reported on Gina’s battle to get a better life for her daughter, Gina said she has been accused by online trolls of being a gold-digger, but she added, “This isn’t about me — I don’t want anything for myself — I just want a better life for Ari. She’s too young now to realize what it is like going from Christmas at Les Moonves’ Park Avenue apartment back to our tiny place crawling with roaches. She doesn’t see how it is strange receiving all these designer baby clothes, but having nowhere to put them, while still worrying how we are going to make rent or buy food. She won’t yet remember that I have to flick cockroaches out of the washing machine in the building before I wash her Bonpoint onesies. But soon she will.”

Gina and Adam continue to negotiate over child support and custody privately through their lawyers, but she fears the talks have reached an impasse. She alleges Adam’s attorneys have suggested it doesn’t make financial sense for her to work, because her salary at her current job isn’t much higher than the cost of childcare. She added, “I want to support my daughter, I want to work. The better question is why doesn’t Adam want to work?”
