Sometimes you don’t miss your ex-husband, but you do miss all his Warhols.

A source tells us socialite Libbie Mugrabi — who was previously married to leading Andy Warhol collector David Mugrabi — has snapped up her own work by the artist at auction.

Libbie was the winning bidder on the pop artist’s “Electric Chair,” for $201,600 at Phillips London’s evening auction of modern and contemporary works, a source revealed. It consists of a set of ten screenprints on woven paper and was part of the artist’s Death and Disaster series.

The socialite filed for divorce from David, whose family has a $5 billion art collection and owns the world’s largest private collection of Warhols, in 2018.

Their divorce became known as one of the nastiest in NYC and included a battle over blue-chip art works including a $500,000 Keith Haring sculpture the pair allegedly physically tussled over at their Upper East Side apartment.

While they settled in December 2020, a judge ordered the couple to swap a number of artworks.

However, when Libbie’s loot arrived she filed a police report in Southampton, accusing David of trying to dump damaged artwork on her. She claimed the $2 million Warhol “Statue of Liberty,” was water stained.

The Phillips London sale raked in $21 million.

Also of note: A work by rising art star Anna Weyant, 27, who has made headlines for sky high sales, as well as dating much older mega-dealer Larry Gagosian, went for $274,000, three times its estimated price
