LuAnn de Lesseps is turning over a new leaf but her new boyfriend isn’t what she thinks he is. The Real Housewives of New York star is dating Rich Super, a well-known agent in Hollywood who has a history of nasty breakups — and he’s currently in the middle of another one.
Super’s history of splits date back to December of 2000 when he separated from his wife, Mary Elany Prousalis. At the time, the two had only been together for six months. Prousalis requested spousal support from Super and claimed that he tried to report less income to lower his payments. Super ended up giving Prousalis money for everyday expenses and even paid for her car lease for half a year. But that wasn’t enough.

A judge ordered Super to pay Prousalis $18,000 in spousal support. They also had to split any property they bought as a couple, including some of his real estate and vehicles. He then had to dish out over $17,000 for other debts. The divorce finally ended in the summer of 2001
Unfortunately for Super, his divorce problems were far from over. According to Radar Online, Super filed for divorce from his current wife, Michele Emanuele, last fall. The two were together for four years before finally calling it quits. Emanuele is seeking full domestic and spousal support from her estranged husband, along with court fees.
Super, meanwhile, wants to only pay Emanuele for a designated length of time, after which all payments will cease. Right now, Super hopes that end date will be sometime in 2019.

As far as de Lesseps is concerned, she is also coming off a recent divorce. The RHONY star cut ties with D’Agostino in 2017 after being married for less than a year. She is also fresh off an embarrassing arrest in Florida a few months back. The reality star was placed in cuffs for drunk and disorderly contact inside a hotel.
In order to address her alcohol problem, de Lesseps enrolled herself in rehab and spent the better part of a month getting sober. Although she hasn’t started drinking again, the reality star recently admitted that giving up alcohol has not been easy — especially when she sees her co-stars indulging.
“It’s not easy to give up drinking because it’s such a mental thing you’ve learned for so long. It’s like brushing your teeth,” she explained.
LuAnn de Lesseps has not addressed the rumors surrounding her romance with Super.
