Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky shoot down divorce rumors: 'Yes, we have had a rough year'

The couple got married in 1996 and share three children together.

Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky are denying recent divorce reports.

After reports surfaced that they had decided to call it quits after 27 years of marriage, the couple issued a joint statement on Instagram, saying that "any claims regarding us divorcing are untrue."

"However, yes, we have had a rough year. The most challenging one of our marriage," they wrote.

The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, 54, and her real estate agent husband, 53, tied the knot in January 1996. Their relationship has been in the spotlight over the years, especially on "RHOBH," which Richards joined in 2010.

Upon celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary in 2021, Richards told Bravo that their marriage was one of her "biggest accomplishments."

"It’s refreshing, in this town to be married 25 years is a really big deal. And we’re really proud to be good role models to our daughters," Richards told Bravo.

In the same interview, Umansky said that being married to Richards for so long has been "great and beautiful," adding "I definitely intend to spend the rest of my life with her."
