Mauricio Umansky hinted at marital problems with Kyle Richards 3 months before split

It appears that Mauricio Umansky and Kyle Richards faced some difficulties in the months leading up to their separation. Umansky acknowledged in an interview with US Weekly in April that they had to put effort into their marriage. He described their marriage as fantastic and fortunate but mentioned that their busy schedules required them to constantly work on their relationship. On Monday, it was revealed that after 27 years of marriage, the real estate broker and reality star had decided to separate. According to a source, Richards and Umansky have been living separately but are still under the same roof. They are maintaining an amicable relationship as they navigate their next steps as individuals and as a family.

In April, Umansky openly discussed the need to work on his marriage with Richards. Despite confirming their separation, Richards and Umansky celebrated the Fourth of July together with two of their daughters, Alexia and Portia, as seen on social media. Umansky even wore his wedding ring in the Instagram photos he shared. Speculations arose in the comments section, with fans questioning the couple’s actions. Some users wondered if they were pretending nothing was amiss, while others commented on Richards’ forced smile and their seemingly uncomfortable body language.

Hours later, the estranged couple took to Instagram to address the rumors surrounding their relationship. They released a joint statement denying any claims of divorce and wrongdoing. However, they did acknowledge that they had faced a challenging year in their marriage. They emphasized their love and respect for each other and asked for privacy as they worked through their issues. The statement also addressed speculations about Richards’ alleged involvement with country singer Morgan Wade, stating that there had been no wrongdoing on anyone’s part. They urged fans not to create false stories and thanked them for their support.

The couple expressed gratitude for their fans’ love and support and signed off the statement with their names. They have three daughters together, Alexia, Sophia, and Portia, while Richards’ eldest child, Farrah, is from her previous marriage.

Fans were taken aback by the news of their split because their marriage seemed solid on the surface, especially on the reality show “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” Richards even shared a selfie with Umansky just hours before the announcement. They had also made public appearances together recently. The couple shares a daughter named Sophia, and Richards has a daughter named Farrah from her previous marriage.

It seems that things were not smooth sailing for Mauricio Umansky and Kyle Richards in the months leading up to their separation.

In an April interview with US Weekly, Umansky admitted that he and Richards had to “work” on their marriage.

“We’ve had an amazing marriage,” Umansky, 53, said. “We’ve been very, very lucky. Right now, we’re both very, very busy and we just have to keep things going and work at it.”

It was revealed on Monday that the real estate broker and reality star, 54, had separated after 27 years of marriage.

“Kyle and Mauricio have been separated for a while now but are still living under the same roof,” a source told People Monday. 


“They remain amicable as they figure out what’s next for them and their family.”

Despite sources confirming their split, per social media, Richards and Umansky celebrated the Fourth of July together with two of their daughters: Alexia, 27, and Portia, 15.

The real estate broker was even seen wearing his wedding ring in the Instagram snaps.

“Happy Independence Day. Hope everyone is having a great day,” he captioned the carousel of photos, where speculating fans had a field day in the comments.
