Teresa Giudice’s attorney, James Leonard, is shutting down claims that Louie Ruelas gifted the Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s daughters Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana fake Cartier bracelets for Christmas.
As previously reported, Louie gifted his stepdaughters $12,500 Juste Un Clou Cartier bracelets for Christmas. Milania and Gia showed off their bracelets on TikTok while sharing what they got for Christmas.
However, some fans on TikTok and Instagram have claimed that the bracelets are fake.

“The inside of that box looked too janky for a brand new Cartier box,” one fan quipped on The Real Bad Fashions Instagram page.
Another added: “Is anyone shocked he bought them fakes?”
Now, Leonard is shutting down the rumor mill in a new statement to Page Six and reveals that Teresa’s daughters loved their Christmas gifts from Louie.
“I think in the spirit of what Christmas is really all about, people’s focus should be elsewhere and not on something silly like this,” he told the outlet. “That being said, the girls are very happy with their bracelets and grateful to have received them.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns for season 13 on February 7.
