“I am not going to destroy my life to put a plant in the news so people can get more entertainment,” Mauricio—who shares children Alexia, 27, Sophia, 23, and Portia, 15, with Kyle, in addition to her daughter Farrah, 34, from a previous marriage—said. “If people actually think I’m that smart or that conniving.”
Back in July, the couple first addressed split speculation. “Any claims regarding us divorcing are untrue,” they wrote in a joint July 3 Instagram statement. “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.”
Since then, the reality stars have put their family first, spending time together over Fourth of July and taking a family trip to Italy in August.
