Luann de Lesseps' Kids and Ex-husband Once Filed a Lawsuit against Her — inside the Legal Drama

Reality TV personality Luann de Lesseps, best known for "Real Housewives of New York," made headlines in 2018 after she was sued by her children and ex-husband.


Luann was married to Count Alexandre de Lesseps for 16 years before parting ways in 2009. The former couple shares two children, Victoria and Noel de Lesseps.

[Luann] was ordered into custody by a Palm Beach County judge.

Unfortunately, Luann's troublesome personality has proven to be a problem for Count Alexandre, a French aristocrat. For that reason, he has asked her to drop his last name a few times.

In late December 2017, for instance, the "RHONY" star, who used to be known as Countess Luann de Lesseps before she married businessman Tom D'Agostino, was arrested in Palm Beach, Florida.


As Page Six reported, police officers apprehended Luann for battery of an officer and making threats against a public servant – among other charges – after she and a man were removed from a hotel room.

Count Alexandre reportedly felt "mortified and ashamed" about her arrest, and supposedly considered that Luann had been "ruining" the family name and should have dropped it immediately.


Following the incident, Luann de Lesseps released a statement in which she admitted to being embarrassed about the whole event and added that she would seek professional guidance – in an alcohol treatment center – to get better. She added:

"I intend to turn this unfortunate incident into a positive life-changing event. Once again, I sincerely apologize for my actions."



Even though her rep supposedly told Page Six that her family had been supportive throughout the process, she made headlines in July 2018 after it was revealed that her ex-husband and children filed a lawsuit against her.

According to the legal document, Alexandre, Noel, and Victoria de Lesseps were claiming that Luann broke a stipulation in her divorce settlement.


In other words, the "RHONY" star was supposed to create a trust for her children but didn't. Apart from that, she threatened to sell her $3.1 million home in Sag Harbor (bought in 2013) to buy herself a luxury home in upstate New York.

So, Alexandre and his children were asking the court to order Luann to create the trust and give her children "an undivided one-half interest" in the house, among other things.



Fortunately for Luann de Lesseps, her children and ex-husband dropped the lawsuit against her. She made the big announcement during an interview with Andy Cohen in April 2019 in which she pointed out that "everything's great" with her kids.

She also said that she kept her Sag Harbor home and bought the one in upstate New York. Luann added that she and her kids would be using all of their houses, suggesting that her home in upstate New York was not bought for herself alone.


About a month after the interview took place, Luann's legal woes attracted all of the attention once again after she was ordered into custody by a Palm Beach County judge for violating her probation twice.

First, the TV personality failed a breath test for alcohol use. Then, she didn't provide documentation to prove that she attended her two required Alcoholics Anonymous meetings per week.


After Luann admitted that she indeed broke her probation, she was released. However, the judge added new terms to her probation, like weekly phone counseling sessions and monthly in-person meetings with a psychiatrist.

At the moment, Luann de Lesseps is dating her agent, Richard Super, as she confirmed in a November 2019 interview with Wendy Williams. She has not shared any photos of him on her Instagram account, though.
