Luann de Lesseps Confirms Lawsuit Filed Against Her by Her Kids and Ex Has Been Dropped
The Real Housewives of New York City star says "everything's great with my kids"
Luann de Lesseps is in a good place.
Appearing on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Wednesday, the Real Housewives of New York City star confirmed that the lawsuit filed against her over an $8 million house sale by her first husband Alexandre de Lesseps and their children Victoria and Noel has been dropped.
She added that “everything’s great with my kids. I’m happy.”
News broke of the lawsuit last July, with court documents obtained by The Blast alleging that the Bravo star breached a stipulation of the settlement in her divorce by failing to create a trust “for the benefit of her two children.”
The divorce judgment required Alexandre to give the deed of the former couple’s marital residence in Bridgehampton, New York, to Luann — who agreed to create a trust for her two children. Luann was also required to “fund the trust with an undivided one-half interest in and to the marital residence,” the documents stated.
But that trust was “never created,” the lawsuit alleged. Instead, Luann sold the residence in November 2014 for $8 million and used the money to purchase a home in Sag Harbor, New York, for $3.1 million, which she then intended to flip so she could purchase a luxury home in upstate New York.
The documents alleged that Luann had “never, since her purchase of the premises, created the trust or conveyed to her children, in trust, an undivided one-half interest in the premises.” The lawsuit was filed in an attempt to block Luann from selling her Sag Harbor home.
On WWHL, Luann confirmed that the family would collectively be using the home in upstate New York, as well as the house in Sag Harbor.
“We’ll all be using all of our houses,” she said. “All together!”
Speaking to PEOPLE last September, Luann said she agreed not to sell her home in Sag Harbor and that “things between my kids and I are going great.”
“I’m keeping my house in the Hamptons, so that took the heat off,” she said. “And I also purchased a home upstate — a smaller one that I love.”
She added that she was confident the case would soon be dropped, saying, “We’ll work things out.”
