Mauricio Umansky is speaking out about the recent rumors that tied actress Leslie Bega to both him and his father, Eduardo Umansky.

After the trio dined with Mauricio’s mom, Dr. Estella Sneider, earlier this month following Mauricio’s performance on Week 2 of Dancing With the Stars, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member, 53, spoke out about Leslie, 56, who works for him at The Agency, as estranged wife Kyle Richards, 54, stepped out without her wedding ring.

In photos shared by the Daily Mail on October 11, Kyle, who has been romantically linked to country singer Morgan Wade, 28, for months, was seen Christmas shopping in Los Angeles in a black outfit with colorful tennis shoes and a brown Birkin bag.

As Kyle prepared for the holidays with a trip to HomeGoods, where she was spotted loading décor, including two nutcrackers, into her black Range Rover, she was missing not only her wedding ring but also her frequent travel partner, Morgan.

As Mauricio prepares for Week 4 of DWTS, he’s shutting down rumors that either he or his dad is involved with Leslie.

“There’s just nothing there,” Mauricio told E! News on October 10. “This whole story is so crazy. There’s nothing to talk about there.”

As RHOBH fans may have seen, Mauricio was linked to Leslie earlier this month after his mom shared a photo from their dinner on her Instagram page after his October 3 performance on DWTS.

“Dinner at Il Pastaio after Dancing With The Stars,” she captioned the Oct. 6 Instagram post. “We had a delicious dinner and a great, enjoyable conversation. It was a wonderful treat to continue celebrating Mauricio. Thank You, [Leslie Rae Bega], for driving me home after dinner, which gave us time to continue enjoying the evening!”

But after Mauricio was linked to Leslie, another report claimed it was actually Eduardo who was dating her. However, after Eduardo confirmed that he is seeing another employee at The Agency, Simin Tabibnia, Mauricio has further set the record straight.

“[Leslie] had tickets [to DWTS], she invited him, but that is not his girlfriend. She works at The Agency,” Mauricio explained.

Also during the interview, Mauricio said mom Estella has been a great support throughout his run on DWTS — and in life.

“My mom, she’s just awesome,” he gushed. “She loves me more than anything in the world. She’s my biggest cheerleader and my biggest fan and she just keeps sending me love and energy.”

Dancing With the Stars season 32 airs on Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC and Disney+.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 13 premieres on Wednesday, October 25, at 8/7c on Bravo.
