Luann de Lesseps was dumped by her boyfriend right before her second stint to rehab, RadarOnline.com has learned.
According to Page Six, the Real Housewives of New York City star began a hot romance with her agent, Richard Super, months before her shocking relapse.
Their relationship came just days after the countess got out of rehab for the first time following her boozy Florida arrest. Super began representing her after her infamous cabaret show—and they fell in love!
Super was De Lesseps' first real relationship since her divorce from husband Tom D'Agostino. As Radar readers know, it was that failed marriage what got de Lesseps into rehab in the first place, so it's no surprise the star went back to her old habits as soon as things turned sour with Super.
A source told the publication that Super dumped the star after her problems with alcohol got a bit too dramatic for him. However, he is apparently still her agent!
