Mauricio Umansky Confirms He And Kyle Richards Are ‘Currently Separated’

The pair are going through a tough time.

After 27 years of marriage, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills power couple Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umanksy have confirmed their separation.

This is despite both Kyle and Mauricio previously denying separation rumours.

On July 3rd of this year, People alleged that the reality star and real estate agent had split, following a source reporting to the magazine that “Kyle and Mauricio have been separated for a while now but are still living under the same roof.”

Later that day, Kyle made a statement on her Instagram which read, “In regards to the news that came out about us today…any claims regarding divorcing are untrue”

“However, yes, we have had a rough year. The most challenging one of our marriage. But we both love and respect each other tremendously,” she shared.

The pair had mutually denied any wrongdoing which may have led to their marriage struggles. Kyle stated, “While it may be entertaining to speculate, please do not create false stories to fit a further salacious narrative.”
