But sentimental viral history has recently run into a feud over how much money Bobbitt has yet to see.
The case went to a New Jersey court on Thursday, where a judge ruled that the couple needed to keep a full record of the money. Until then, the remainder of the money must be handed over to Bobbitt's Legal Department in a trust.
The two sides differed in terms of payout. McClures and D & #; Amicos attorney said they had provided Bobbitt with more than $ 200,000, WPVI and KYW reported. Bobbitt's lawyer, Chris Fallon, said the amount was about $ 75,000.
CNN called Ernest Badway, a lawyer for the couple, who said he did not comment. In court, he told the judge that the couple "said they had a forensic accountant, they said they were fine, they said they would open the books, what else can they do?"
He urged the public to hold back the verdict until the accounting of the money ended.
The judge wants to have made that till September 10, WPVI reported.
KYW reported that the judge ordered the remaining fiduciary money on Friday.
"What I would say to these people is thanks for your generosity," Fallon said in court, "and we will work hard to ensure that this money is spent the way you spent it."
Part the money went to the GoFundme management fees.
