Amid their contentious divorce, Lenny Hochstein is now accusing his ex Lisa Hochstein of physical abuse, and he claimed this is one reason why he chose to end the marriage.

Throughout the divorce proceedings, Lenny and Lisa have gone back and forth with several allegations against each other. Lisa claimed Lenny was cheating on her with his current fiancée Katharina Mazepa.

Back in November 2023, the Real Housewives of Miami star also posted a pic of her bruised arm on social media, leading many to believe Lenny physically abused her during their marriage. Lenny immediately denied it and sued her for defamation.

According to a recent court filing via Us Weekly, Lenny claimed Lisa “consistently hit” him in their marriage.

“There are too many times over the course of the marriage to list each instance of physical abuse by [Lisa] against [Lenny] … However, to be clear, at no point in time did [Lenny] ever strike or hit back at [Lisa] or push or initiate any physical harm to [Lisa] in any way,” said the document, claiming the alleged abuse was one reason why he “initiated divorce proceedings” in 2022.

Speaking to Us Weekly about his allegations, Lenny stated, “That’s the reality of it. I never hit her and she hit me countless times. Everything that she has accused me of is typically her behavior not mine.”

“Lisa is 100 pounds. She never hurt me. I never felt like she was hurting me or I was an abused person,” Lenny added. “But that’s the reality. The only way she has ever hurt me are in the things she has said, not done.”

But Lisa’s lawyer denied the abuse allegations.

“Mr. Hochstein’s allegations are unfounded, and we plan to prove this is a frivolous lawsuit,” said Matthew Moore to the same outlet.

Their next hearing amid the legal saga is scheduled for May 30.

In her 2023 post about the bruised arm, Lisa said the injury occurred during filming.

“Didn’t want to have to share this, but I’m left with no choice. I’m being harassed through the court system and through ‘others’ by Lenny and it needs to stop,” Lisa wrote at the time on her Instagram Stories. “This was almost two weeks old from last season. You may have caught this bruise on the episode when I opened up to the women on the show about the divorce.”
