Democratic Florida Rep. Alan Grayson and his estranged wife were back in court Monday after an agreement on terms for their divorce fell apart.

The last time the congressman and Lolita Grayson were in court, both sides thought they were hours away from an agreement. Mr. Grayson signed the agreement but the mother of his five children did not, the station reported.

“I’ll sum it up for you: Gold diggers gotta dig. That’s all I gotta say,” he told local ABC affiliate WFTV. “We had an agreement. She’s trying to renege.”

Mrs. Grayson was accused of failing to get a divorce from her first husband before marrying Mr. Grayson in 1990. She admitted to bigamy in the last hearing and was close to reaching a financial deal, but arrived to court with her fifth lawyer on Monday and her incoming sixth lawyer, the station reported.

All Mrs. Grayson did was laugh when asked for comment by a WFTV reporter. She filed for divorce last year accusing the congressman of affairs and domestic violence, which video showed was untrue, the station reported.

“Why did you decide to hire another lawyer this far down the road?” the reporter asked.

“I’m sorry, no comment,” said Greg Lewen, Mrs. Grayson’s new attorney.

Mr. Grayson’s attorney said he’s going to ask the judge to enforce the deal the two came to last month, the station reported.
