Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps is back on the market after her trainer boyfriend Garth Wakeford broke things off and allegedly started dating a much younger woman.
Luann tells Radar, "We stopped dating since before the holidays and I only wish him well." The relationship didn’t last that long. Luann only confirmed she was dating Garth back in November.
Many people had been asking questions about the status of Lu’s relationship after the popular celebrity gossip Instagram account Deuxmoi posted an anonymous tip.
A source told the outlet, “Luann de Lessep’s personal trainer/boyfriend Garth (as seen in the new RHONY trailer) is allegedly dating college bombshell and Sag Harbor socialite Jacqueline Leahy.”
They added, “Jacqueline is rumored to be close family friends with Sonja Morgan, so this is something that could really blow up this season.” The 19-year-old college student does follow Sonja on social media.
Garth’s Instagram account is private following the story being published. Jacqueline’s social media says she lives in "Sag Harbor/Boca Raton." She doesn’t currently follow Garth's account. Sources close to Garth confirmed he is no longer dating Luann but claim the circumstances surrounding it aren't as being reported. He says he is not dating Jacqueline.
The young stunner isn’t afraid to show off her fit body. She regularly posts selfies wearing extremely tiny bikinis and appears to love partying with friends.
The breakup is sad given Luann seemed to be enjoying her time with the 6’6 trainer, who she met on the dating app Hinge. She revealed to Page Six, “We actually met on the dating app … He lives locally in the Hamptons.”
She believed he was a catfish because his profile pictures were too sexy. She said, “Oh, he is too good to be true.”
Luann says she agreed to meet Garth for coffee and was blown away. She said, “I said, ‘Oh, my God! He’s exactly what he looks like on the app.’ He’s tall, he’s handsome, he looks like a Viking.”
The RHONY has had a series of short flings since divorcing her second husband, Tom D’Agostino Jr., in 2017.
