EXCLUSIVE By Jose Lambiet, GossipExtra.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, Nov 6, 2014 – CORAL GABLES — University of Miami neurologist Dr. Bruno Gallo is entangled in a mushrooming sex scandal that stems from a court battle against a former mistress and patient who, he claims, has been stalking him!
Assistant professor Gallo, 54, who’s been married to a much younger nurse since 2008, has been so worried about ex-paramour Lisa Morse, according to records, that he’s been seeking a restraining order against her.
Gallo and Morse allegedly got it on in his campus office and medical examination rooms for a least three years before they broke up in July.
But when things between them got hairy, Gallo had UM Police keep an eye out for Morse. (Check out the BOLO below)
Morse, who denies any wrongdoing, has struck back — and she’s fighting the no-contact procedure and the damages it could do to her reputation.
For one thing, a letter purported to be from Gallo to Morse and obtained by Gossip Extra shows that the campus Lothario may have been getting busy with other mistresses.
“You were one of multiple affairs,” Gallo allegedly wrote in the letter. “You should get tested.”
It’s yet another Gossip Extra exclusive: Earlier this month, Miami-Dade County family court judge Joseph Davis turned down Gallo’s request for an order to force occupational therapist Morse stay away.
Gallo has asked Davis to reconsider, and that hearing is scheduled for December 2.
“Ms. Morse has been a patient and lover of Dr. Gallo for three years,” said Mark Berkley, Morse’s lawyer. “Their love affair ended and they became dear friends. But then the doctor became hostile, and we are in court.”
On Oct. 5, records show, Gallo complained to Miami Police that Morse had been calling his Bay Point house and showed up at his 18-month-old son’s daycare.
Gallo also told police someone carved “No more I love yous” on the front passenger door of his car.
Morse was not arrested or charged, but she became the target of Gallo’s civil domestic violence complaint.
Berkley says he is entering Gallo’s alleged letter into the court file on time for the Dec. 2 hearing.
“Dear Lisa,” the missive stars, “the relationship I had with you was thoughtless and cruel. I hurt many people, particularly my spouse. . . I am permanently ending all contact with you . . . My spouse has all the details of our relationship, and she will also be told of any attempts at contact.”
The letter ends with a plea for Morse to get tested for STDs!
According to county marriage licenses, Gallo is hitched to former UM medical student who is 24 year his junior. Her online profile shows she, like her husband, works in the University of Miami Health System.
We reached out to Dr. Gallo, a specialist of brain surgery on patients kept awake, via telephone and email, but he has yet to comment.
A spokeswoman for the university declined comment.
