Luann de Lesseps’ lawsuit involving her children has been dropped! Luann recently confirmed the news on Watch What Happens Live. The Real Housewives of New York star had a lawsuit violating her divorce agreement and stealing from her adult children. However; according to court documents, and Luann herself, it has been dropped.
The case was filed back in July, by her ex-husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps and their two kids, Noel and Victoria. According to Page Six it claimed Luann had agreed back in 2009 to set up a trust for the children using half of her interest in the family’s Bridgehampton home.
Luann had sold that home for $8 million and used the cash to buy a $3.1 million house in Sag Harbor. Luann had intended to flip the house so she could buy a luxury home in upstate New York. The lawsuit was filed in part, to block the sale of the Sag Harbor home. A “stipulation of discontinuance” was signed by lawyers for both sides and was filed in the Suffolk County case, ending further litigation.
On this season of the RHONY, Luann revealed that she wanted to buy the Catskills home so badly that she asked co-star Bethenny Frankel’s ex, Dennis Shields, for a $6 million loan before he died. Luann said on the show, “I was fixed on it. I had to have it, I was manic. Believe me, I called everybody I knew for $6 million. There weren’t many on the list, and Dennis was one of them. I wanted that house more than anything. I would have sold my soul at that point. That’s how bad it was.”
Luann confirmed the news on WWHL. She explained the lawsuit had been dropped, “That’s right, yeah. Everything’s great, with my kids.” They have a house upstate New York and a home in the Hamptons. They are keeping both houses. Luann explained, “We’ll all be using all of our houses, all together.”
She also opened up about her love life! Is she dating? A little! Luann shared, “Well, I have been dating a little bit. But nobody to write home about, or to tell my mother about or my kids.”
I’m glad everything has been resolved!
