Amid their messy divorce, and just days after the Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador confirmed she and David are no longer on good terms, Lesley took to her Instagram page, where she shared a photo of herself and “[her] husband,” David, with their arms around one another in Montana, where they share a vacation home.
“Look who I bumped into at Yellowstone National Park. My husband!” she wrote in the caption of the August 8 photo.
As RHOC fans may recall, David and Lesley, who share a two-year-old daughter, Anna, filed dueling divorce requests against each other in September of last year, around the time of their two-year wedding anniversary, but ultimately decided to stay together and called off their split the following month.
Then, in May of this year, David and Lesley separated once again. And in the weeks that followed, they embarked on quite the court battle, with Lesley accusing David of physical and sexual abuse and aggressive co-parenting.
“Despite exchanges [of their daughter, Anna] being at the Laguna Beach Police Department, David presents as erratic, volatile, angry, hostile, uncooperative, shaky, threatening, and not of sound mind,” a clinical social worker wrote in court documents in June, claiming David once left Anna “on the sidewalk.”
Lesley also accused David of cutting her off financially and of making her feel threatened.
“[David] gave me the middle finger. I kept driving and did not stop. I became increasingly fearful that he would start running after me, so I drove home and locked my doors,” she stated.
Meanwhile, as he demanded Lesley leave their $15 million mansion in Orange County in his own court documents, David reunited with ex-wife Shannon on a couple of occasions for what has since been confirmed as a short-lived reconciliation.
During an episode of Watch What Happens Live last week, after host Andy Cohen questioned her about whether she and David were “still civil,” Shannon revealed they had suffered yet another falling out.
“[But] it’s okay,” she insisted.
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 17 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
