RadarOnline.com first broke the story that Christina McLarty had moved out of their Bel Air mansion and into her mother’s house after only seven weeks of marriage.
Yet, despite facing a possible divorce, the Girls Gone Wild founder flatly denied RadarOnline.com’s report, labeling it “false” and “funny”.
When a RadarOnline.com reporter spoke with McLarty on Wednesday at her mother’s Los Angeles home where she has been staying, the CBS television reporter was stony-faced and dodged questions about the split.
She stayed silent when asked if her short marriage was over and notably wasn’t wearing a wedding or engagement ring.
Francis famously gave McLarty a nine-carat custom diamond ring, valued at just under a half a million dollars, when he popped the big question in St. Tropez while on vacation earlier this year.
The pair wed in a lavish civil ceremony in early November at Francis’ posh estate in Punta Mita, Mexico.
However, as RadarOnline.com first revealed, the marriage appears short-lived as Francis was overheard discussing his separation with close friends at Bruce and Kris Jenner‘s annual Christmas eve party.
“Christina moved out a bit after Thanksgiving,” said a source.
“He was talking about the details of the separation openly while at the Kardashian holiday party.”
As McLarty’s mom told RadarOnline.com she too wasn’t prepare to comment about the break-up, we saw suitcases strewn across the living room floor at the modest Studio City, California, home.
