(Newser) – Divorce has a new weapon: YouTube. The former-actress wife of a millionaire theater impresario took to the Internet last week in a teary six-minute video in which she claims her older hubby is evicting her from their Park Avenue pad after years of refusing her sex despite owning porn, condoms, and Viagra, the AP reports. May not play in divorce court, but it's scored 287,776 hits.

In the edited video, British actress and playwright Tricia Walsh-Smith also shows her Internet audience the couple's wedding album—where she points to a photo of her “evil” daughter-in-law—and calls her 74-year-old husband's secretary to air her grievances. Estranged husband Philip Smith, the manager of Broadway's Shubert Organization, had no comment.
