There’s nothing regal about this.
Real Housewives Of New York veteran Countess LuAnn de Lesseps was DUMPED because her long-time boyfriend Jacques Azoulay couldn’t shake his fears that she’d cheated on him, RadarOnline.com has been told.
The French winemaker was wrecked with suspicion after the Countess spent time alone with Tomas, a French-speaking Johnny Depp lookalike whom she met a club during an alcohol-fueled night out in St. Barts — a scene that played out on the popular Bravo show last season.
“Jacques wanted to believe LuAnn and for a while their relationship appeared to be back on track,” a source close to the situation told Radar.
“Then, the Countess began to pressure him for a marriage proposal and that is when the trust issues came up again. Jacques just couldn’t trust her and he decided to end the relationship.”
Complicating matters, the 48-year-old former fashion model was caught in a MAJOR lie about Tomas!
She had told her costars — and later Jacques, in a phone call — that she brought home a group Italian friends, not the young hunk.
The reality star later wrote on her blog, “Character counts and honesty matters. I’m sorry I concocted a story about my ‘Italian friends’ coming back to the house. I admit that my problem is the cover-up not the crime. I can assure you once again that nothing happened with Tomas.”
A source close to the Countess said she’s been “devastated” by her ex-decision to end their romance.
“She really thought she was going to spend the rest of her life with him. Jacques treated her so well. She is very lost right now,” the insider said.
