The documents had previously been public for a time but were not widely reported on before being sealed.

The documents include explicit allegations by Burkle's daughter about his conduct toward his ex-wife.

They also provide an analysis of Burkle's financial investments as of 1997, when the couple signed a post-marital agreement, and Janet Burkle's account of their household spending and property holdings, as well as a window into his family's upscale habits."For the vast majority of our marriage -- the last 20 of our 28-year marriage -- my husband and I lived among the most lavish of American lifestyles," Janet Burkle stated in a September 2003 divorce filing.
