"It happened gradually. Apparently there was no huge fight, but who knows? They may be hiding a scandal," they expressed.

The news of the couple's separation came when a source told People, "Kyle and Mauricio have been separated for a while now but are still living under the same roof. They remain amicable as they figure out what's next for them and their family."

Divorce rumors quickly swirled following the bombshell news, however, Richards took to social media to share her own message.

"In regards to the news that came out about us today … Any claims regarding us divorcing are untrue. However, yes, we have had a rough year. The most challenging one of our marriage. But we both love and respect each other tremendously. There has been no wrongdoing on anyone's part. Although we are in the public eye, we ask to be able to work through our issues privately. While it may be entertaining to speculate, please do not create false stories to fit a further salacious narrative," she penned on Instagram Tuesday, July 4.
