The & # 39; Sugar Daddy & # 39;, whose NYPD policewoman was accused of looking for a killer to kill her estranged husband, was identified.
John DiRubba, 54, was identified on Saturday as the boyfriend who blew up his much younger girlfriend Valerie Cincinelli, 34, for allegedly signing a contract with her husband Isaiah Carvalho Jr.
DiRubba paid Officer Cincinelli's home and car payments – and it was he who told the FBI about the homicide plot and ran a wire for the government to thwart the program, several sources told the New York Post.
Cincinelli was arrested on Friday and charged with using international trade facilities under the homicide commission. He is currently in federal custody at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.

Although it is now closed, DiRubba opened an Italian bakery in 2007 in this Montgomery Village store, where TV wiseguys gathered
Although his last known address was in Howard Beach, Queens, DiRubba opened an Italian bakery in the state of Montgomery Village in 2007 and sold Cannoli to TV wiseguys.
Among the regulars were Tony Lip, who played Carmine Lupertazzi at The Sopranos, and Vincent Pastore, who, according to the Times Herald Record Sal & # 39; Big P *** y & # 39; Bonpensiero played on the show.
DiRubba himself looked like a mobster with his shaved head and Adidas tracksuit – though he insisted that he was just a humble bakery owner and not a man made.
Although Cincinelli's father points a finger at DiRubba and accuses him of staging the homicide plot, he carried the wire that the prosecution claims he provided "overwhelming" evidence against his now suspended NYPD policewoman.
The twisted murder-to-rent saga dates back to February when the prosecutor said double mother Cincinelli approached her new boyfriend and asked him to find a killer who could leave Carvalho.
But instead of proceeding with the conspiracy, the friend hurried to the FBI information and became a secret informant, according to documents reported by the New York Post.

On February 18, prosecutors announced that Cincinelli had fueled the conspiracy by pulling $ 7,000 from a TD Bank branch and giving the friend the money to buy five ounces of gold coins that he used to allegedly kill can pay.
Cincinelli, who has her own children with Carvalho, also wanted the alleged killer to kill her new boyfriend's teenage daughter because she stands in the way of their relationship, the court documents say.
The policeman reportedly told her boyfriend to tell the killer to run her over so the girl's death would seem like a hit-and-run.
The friend took Cincinelli with him when the FBI gathered information and told her that he was in contact with a killer and the conspiracy was progressing.
On Monday, friend Cincinelli said the alleged killer was chasing Carvalho at work on Long Island, but the NYPD policeman protested that the area was too upscale.
Instead, Cincinelli said he should be killed in "the hood" or "the ghetto" so "it doesn't look suspicious," court records say.
Concerned that two deaths would cause close suspicion, Cincinelli advised her boyfriend "to have the killer (the teenager) killed over the weekend and then wait a week or a month to kill her husband," says in the documents.

The investigation came to a head on Friday morning when a Suffolk County detective who worked with the government came to Cincinelli and mistakenly told her that her husband had been found dead.
Cincinelli sobbed during the notification – but hidden devices recorded her response after the detective left home.
According to court records, she quickly began talking to the friend about her alibi.
The friend also showed her text messages between himself and a covert federal agent who claims to be a killer. One of them contained a staged photo of Carvalho, who, according to court records, appears dead in his car.
Soon afterwards, a task force of FBI agents and NYPD officials for internal affairs collapsed and arrested Cincinelli.
Records show that Carvalho filed for divorce against Cincinelli last year and a court date was set for June.
The prosecutor offered no motive for Cincinelli to see him dead.
According to NBC4, Cincinelli joined the police department in 2007 and worked at the Queens 106th Precinct in Ozone Park.
However, in 2017, after a series of domestic incidents, she was freed from her badge and weapon and assigned to a modified assignment, an official said.

However, Cinicinelli's father jumped to defend his daughter and insisted that the allegations against her were "bulls ***".
& # 39; They were married, they had a child together and then they were divorced. Under no circumstances would my daughter let anyone on the planet try to murder him. This is nonsense! & # 39; he told the post on Friday.
He added that his daughter "went out with a madman who had made an accusation against her before trying to kill him".
He refused to identify the man and said he was "sure" that the unnamed partner was behind the allegation.
In the meantime, Carvalho Jr. is said to have been "shaken" by the ordeal, but to do well "under all circumstances".
The Bronx-based mechanic declined to speculate whether or not he believed the allegations against his ex-wife were true.
Prior to her downgrading, Cincinelli was an award-winning officer and was even named "Cop of the Month" by the Jamaica Rotary in June 2017.
The Oceanside resident, Long Island, had recently worked in the Viper unit and monitored cameras in public housing prior to her arrest.
Longwood University graduate Cincinelli returned to school in 2016 to be interviewed about her work in the NYPD's Domestic Violence Department.
“We want children to like us. This is the next generation; You will grow up in 10 years. I love children; You are my weakness. I feel like I can make a difference by helping children and their families, ”she told the school's alumni magazine.
"When I greet children who go for a walk with their parents, the parent unfortunately sometimes says:" Do not speak to them. "Some parents teach their children to hate the police. & # 39;
Cincinelli is charged with using international trade facilities under the homicide commission, which results in a maximum imprisonment of 10 years.
She will appear before a judge on Monday. She was suspended without payment immediately after her arrest.
