Another celebrity couple bites the dust. After eight months of marriage, LuAnn de Lesseps and husband Tom D’Agostino Jr. have decided to go their separate ways. According to a report from Page Six, the couple filed for divorce on Long Island early Thursday. The Real Housewives of New York City star took to Twitter to announce the sad news to fans.
"It's with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce,” de Lesseps wrote on Twitter. "We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!”
The couple was widely known for their tumultuous relationship. It began during the early days of their relationship, when it was revealed that D’Agostino Jr. also dated Real Housewives costars Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan. Also, in February 2016, costar Bethenny Frankel showed de Lesseps photos of her now-estranged husband kissing an ex-girlfriend the night before their engagement party, which she forgave him for.
Rumors of a split ignited just last month, after the couple reportedly got into a physical confrontation at an NYC restaurant, during which de Lesseps slapped D'Agostino Jr. An Us Weekly source blew off the news as false, saying, "I think that they got caught in public in a fight and all of the sudden that turns into them fighting a lot. They haven’t really been fighting that much.”
The couple married during a lavish New Year's Eve wedding in Palm Beach, Florida, back in January. The three-day celebration included a rehearsal dinner on a yacht, a lounge-style soiree, and tons of entertainment options. They said their I do's at Brazilian Court (the ceremony also doubled as D'Agostino Jr.'s 50th birthday), and the bride walked down the aisle in a custom-made creation designed by Randi Rahm.
