In a new statement, the ‘Real Housewives of Miami’ star blasts her estranged husband’s girlfriend Katharina Mazepa for filing a restraining order against her, an action that she calls ‘ridiculous.’
AceShowbiz -Things are only getting messier between Lisa Hochstein and her estranged husband Lenny Hochstein as well as his girlfriend Katharina Mazepa. In a new statement, “The Real Housewives of Miami” star blasted Katharina for filing a restraining order against her.
“Regarding his girlfriend, I am working with my attorney on a legal response to her ridiculous allegations which everyone knows are untrue,” the 40-year-old reality TV star told Page Six. “What a waste of their time and money.”
It was previously revealed that Katharina filed a restraining order against Lisa in July. In the court documents, the 26-year-old accuses the star of harassing and bullying her since she started dating Lenny.
Lisa, however, denied the allegations, insisting that she’s just trying to be a good mom and take care of her and the plastic surgeon’s two kids, Logan (7) and Elle (2). “While Lenny spends his time and money on a European vacation I’m at home with our children,” she said.
Meanwhile, Lenny claimed that Lisa was “abusing” their joint credit card when he was on the vacay with Katharina. “Last month the bill was nearly 60K. This month she continued the abuse, including purchasing jewelry and clothing for herself, which placed the card over the limit just prior to my vacation,” Lenny noted. While Lenny said that Lisa used the money to buy things for herself, a source close to the TV star said that the charges have been for her kids, her legal fees or Lenny’s own expenses.
Earlier this month, Lisa accused Lenny of attempting to “financially strangle” her. In court documents, she alleged that the self-proclaimed “Boob God” relaliated her “by restricting [her] access to funds” when she “does not acquiesce to each and every one of [his] demands.”
“While the husband is presently traveling on a no-expense-spared vacation with his presumed girlfriend to Europe, he has left the wife and children without cash, access to funds and less than $3,000 of available credit on the joint credit card,” the documents stated.
Not stopping there, Lisa also alleged that Lenny verbally berates and threatens her in front of their children. Lenny shut down the claims, writing in a statement to Page Six, “As far as being berated, it is quite the opposite. It is Lisa who constantly attacks and berates me. I moved into another bedroom, and when that wasn’t enough, I had to rent an apartment. I am trying my best to avoid conflict. I just want to be divorced.”
