the press tells that "film executive Jerome Safron found himself in more judicial hot water today as the result of his ‘invalid’ Mexican marriage to model Joy Lansing. Safron`s first wife had him found in contempt of court for non-payment of child support, and Superior Judge Mildred L. Lillie gave him until August 21 to pay $1400 in arrears. Safron`s first wife, Mrs. Nancy Cornelius Brown Safron Williams, brought the name of Miss Lansing into the court action by pointing out that Safron had spent $22,000 in his four-month marriage to the model. The film executive admitted the expenditures but insisted that $13,000 paid for his ill mother`s surgery in New York caused the delay in payments to Mrs. Williams. Judge Lillie two weeks ago denied Miss Lansing temporary alimony from Safron on the ground their marriage was not legal because at the time Safron had not been legally divorced from a Denver woman."
