This divorce is getting nastier by the minute...
Tom D’Agostino isn’t going down without a fight! The estranged husband of Luann de Lesseps is said to be demanding some serious cash after the Real Housewives of New York City star left him after just seven months of marriage. Though the two are putting on a united front for their fans, word has it the former couple is bickering about money behind-the-scenes. With millions of dollars on the line, the two are likely to battle it out for a huge divorce settlement.
It’s no secret Luann de Lesseps and Tom D’Agostino are pretty well off financially. The Real Housewives of New York City star has been raking in cash since joining the Bravo show in 2008, while her husband is the CEO of Smart Source, LLC.
Though money hasn’t been a big issue in the past, word has it the couple — who recently announced their separation after just seven months of marriage — is bickering behind-the-scenes about finances. With millions of dollars on the line in their divorce, the two are likely to battle it out for a huge chunk of change.
According to Radar Online, Tom, 50, wants Luann, 52, to pay back the money he spent redoing her newly renovated kitchen in her Hamptons home. The businessman is said to be seeking some serious cash from his estranged wife since he barely had time to enjoy the refurbishments during their short-lived marriage.
“Tom paid for the kitchen renovation at Luann’s Sag Harbor home,” a source tells Radar Online. “Tom wants her to pay him back the money he spend on her amazing new kitchen.”
The issue has seemingly been nagging Tom to a point that he’s confronted Luann about it. “He was teasing her about how much it cost,” an insider reveals, noting Luann barely used the kitchen since renovations finished.
“She makes him some food before leaving for an event, but Tom implied that she didn’t spend time cooking,” the source adds.
