Did a broken heart cause Luann de Lesseps to relapse? Before The Real Housewives of New York City star entered rehab for the second time earlier this summer, she was dumped by her then-boyfriend, her agent Rich Super.
An insider confirmed the split to Page Six, claiming Rich broke things off when Luann’s relationship with alcohol got to be too complicated.
Rich began representing Lu when she started her The Countess and Friends cabaret show in the spring.
It was Lu’s first romance since she and her ex-husband Tom D’Agostino split in August 2017 after seven months of marriage.

Despite the split, a rep for Luann told Page Six, “Rich and Luann are great friends and he still serves as Luann’s agent.”
As OK! readers know, Luann checked back into rehab in July. She previously completed a stint in January following a drunken arrest in Florida over Christmas.
The week before she returned to rehab, Lu’s ex-husband Alexandre de Lesseps and their two kids, Noel and Victoria, filed a lawsuit against her for failing to fulfill the terms of their divorce settlement by never creating a trust from their Hamptons home in the kids’ names.
