Danielle Staub is postponing her whirlwind wedding to fiancé Oliver Maier— and it could be a good call! The Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her royal fiancé Oliver Maier got “blackout drunk” during their pre-wedding trip to St. Barth, sources exclusively revealed to RadarOnline.com. Radar has also obtained exclusive video of Staub’s future husband being rescued from the ocean during a boozy swim on Thursday, February 28.
In the shocking video, Maier could be seen sitting on the sand as waves knock him down. Unable to stand, a group of men and women attempt to help the struggling Duke.
At one point, two men drag him safely to shore.
“They’ve been at the hotel the last couple of days,” an eyewitness told Radar of the couple, who stayed at Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France. “We happened to notice them at the pool drinking. It’s obvious she drank a lot. She was s**t faced!”
The hotel guest said Staub, 56, remained at the bar while her fiancé went to the beach for a swim.
“He swam all the way out,” the insider claimed. “It was alarming cause he was s**t faced. He was swimming back and he couldn’t get out of the ocean so I called someone for help.”
When the group tried to help Maier, the source claimed he screamed, “Don’t touch me! You don’t know who I am! I’m the Duke! Who do you think you are?”
“He was on a level I never saw before,” the eyewitness said.
When the onlooker attempted to alert Staub, she responded, “Oh no, my boyfriend doesn’t like to be touched!”
But the partying didn’t stop there, as a second source exclusively told Radar they were “blackout drunk” in the hotel on Friday, March 1.
“They are so, so drunk,” the eyewitness claimed. “She was on the phone with someone because they’re supposed to be flying out. She said, ‘I just cancelled $70,000 worth of flights!’”
Staub and Maier, who is a duke of Provence, France, were set to tie the knot on Monday, March 4 by a justice of peace in New York City.
But Staub postponed the wedding to Maier, who she has only been dating for six weeks.
“Danielle’s daughters haven’t met him yet,” a source told Us Weekly of Staub’s daughters, Jillian and Christine, from a previous marriage. “After today she realized she wants to bring her kids into the process more. The wedding has been postponed. Her daughters were surprised because everything happened so fast.”
The Bravo star has now been engaged 21 times.
A rep for Staub declined to comment. Maier did not respond to Radar's request for comment.
