Mom of two fought with husband about drinking before plunging from roof of luxury NYC building: sources

The woman who plunged from a luxury Upper East Side apartment building Thursday had a blowout fight with her spouse just moments before she took the fatal leap, according to sources — but the “devastated” husband said “he wasn’t even home.”

Alina Page, 35, jumped from the roof on the 36th story of The Brittany after her spouse confronted her about her drinking habits, law enforcement sources told The Post.

Her husband, Brian Page, said he wasn’t there when the tragedy unfolded but declined to answer questions about whether there was a fight.

“She was the love of my life, my soulmate,” the heartbroken husband told The Post. “I am devastated.”

The mother of two was found with injuries consistent with a fall on the corner of York Avenue and East 92nd Street around 6:45 p.m.

Page was rushed to the NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell in critical condition, but later succumbed to her injuries.

She lived in the ritzy building — which runs a private shuttle to the subway every 30 minutes — with her “big family,” multiple sources confirmed.

Page, originally from Russia, frequently posted images to Facebook of herself smiling ear-to-ear with her two young children.

She and her husband were just 11 days short of celebrating their 16th wedding anniversary.

Police haven’t officially labeled Page’s plunge as a suicide, but residents told The Post that the building has extraordinary safety measures in place to prevent an accidental fall.

“The railing is really tall … I would say at least 4 feet,” one renter said about the roof.

“[The windows] don’t open. They crack. All of them have child safety. I have small cats so they wouldn’t be able to fit through. So she wouldn’t.

“I’m just glad I didn’t see it. It’s a very family-friendly building.”

The Brittany, which is just a few blocks from Gracie Mansion, is a ritzy apartment building known for its “incredible, panoramic water views” of the East and Harlem rivers.

A two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit can cost around $7,500, according to StreetEasy.
