The Real Housewives of Miami stars Lisa and Lenny Hochstein are divorcing after 12 years of marriage. Lenny has already been spotted with a young new girlfriend, and Lisa has called his behavior “reckless” in a statement.

Lenny had denied that they were splitting in statements prior, but on Monday announced his decision to file for divorce. In a statement, he said, “A few weeks ago, I denied this because I am trying my best to protect my family during this process.” He has said that the decision has been on the table for years, and that recently, “Lisa and I have been living separate lives for months and I have been sleeping in a separate bedroom. We made the decision to get divorced.”

He also claimed that he began his new relationship with 26-year-old Katharina Mazepa after they came to the decision to divorce together, so they may have been sitting on the news for the past weeks as they’ve been spotted together in Miami in early May. Lisa and Lenny reportedly got in a “showdown” last week and that allegedly “a drink was thrown,” when she showed up at club Gala Miami where Lenny and Mazepa were attending too.

Through a spokesperson, Lisa has said, “With two young children involved, as a mom I’m going to focus all of my energy and time on them. I’m blindsided by his behavior and reckless handling of the situation.”

In RHOM‘s fourth season, which premiered last December on Peacock, Lisa had revealed that she and her hubby were brought to the brink of divorce years ago when he “had an emotional affair with some $2 hoe,” while they were struggling to have children. They now have children Logan, 6, and Elle, 2 together, both born through surrogates.
