REPORT: Kyle Richards and Mauricio Have Been "Struggling in Their Relationship" & "Spending Time Apart" Before Alleged Separation, Plus When Kyle Met Rumored Flame Morgan Wade's Mom

Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky may have just announced their marital issues days ago, but according to a new report, the couple has been experiencing challenges for a while.

As one insider suggests the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and her realtor spouse, who stars on Buying Beverly Hills, have been “spending time apart” and doing “their own things,” another is revealing that Kyle was introduced to the mother of her alleged flame, singer Morgan Wade, months prior to her and Mauricio’s alleged separation.

As noted in a report from Radar Online on July 5, Kyle confirmed her then-upcoming meeting with Morgan’s mom in April after Morgan, who sports an identical heart tattoo and matching ring to Kyle, shared a birthday tribute for her.

“Happy birthday to my wonderful mom! I love you so much! Can’t wait to celebrate next week,” Morgan had said.

“Happy birthday @robinfonville See you soon!” Kyle replied.

And as fans may have seen days ago on Instagram Live, Morgan has already met Kyle’s two sisters, Kim Richards and Kathy Hilton.

As rumors continue to swirl about Kyle and Morgan, it is being alleged that the reported separation between Kyle and Mauricio, who share daughters Alexia, 27, Sophia, 23, and Portia, 15, has been a long time coming.

“Kyle and Mauricio have been struggling in their relationship. Their problems aren’t new. They had been spending time apart and doing their own things, but they have been trying to make things work,” an insider told Entertainment Tonight on July 6.

But in the months leading up to the split news, Kyle shut down claims of trouble in paradise. In fact, speaking to the outlet in March, she said she’s “not losing any sleep” over the false reports.

“The analyzing of everything is so — we were just talking about that in the car. I’m seen out at the gym without a ring on, or the rumors about weight loss. I just — I can’t keep up anymore,” Kyle admitted at the time. “I used to get so upset about these things. I don’t even care. I’m not losing any sleep over it.”

“I don’t know if it’s getting used to it, or just I’ve been through so much I’ve thrown in the towel,” she continued. “I don’t really know. All I know is my anxiety is better than it’s ever been, and I just — I just can’t stress about it anymore.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 13 is expected to premiere on Bravo this fall.
