Although it was initially reported that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky, are headed for divorce due to Richards’ alleged affair with country music star Morgan Wade, the couple has refuted the rumors.

On Monday, People Magazine reported citing a source that the two “have been separated for a while now but are still living under the same roof. They remain amicable as they figure out what’s next for them and their family.”

Richards, 54, and Umansky, 53, who met in 1994 and got married a couple of years later have denied the divorce rumors in a newly released joint statement. “In regards to the news that came out about us today… Any claims regarding us divorcing are untrue,” The statement posted on Instagram said on Tuesday. The couple, however, did not hide the fact that they were undergoing marital difficulties, writing that they “have had a rough year” and it has been “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,” Richards and Umansky continued.

Here is a look at some details about Wade in light of the current rumors:

Is Morgan Wade a lesbian?

One of the obvious queries from fans, after they found out about Richards’ alleged cheating rumors, was whether Wade was a lesbian. However, it is not known for sure what Wade’s sexual orientation is as she has never been open about it.

Heart tattoo

Wade has a variety of tattoos covering different parts of her body. She started getting tattoos at the age of 19. “I was sitting in my apartment. One of my friends from college, she was there. She was just like, ‘I think you would like tattoos.’ I don’t know why she said that to me, and I was like, “I think you’re right,” Wade told Rolling Stone.

Before the news of Richards’s alleged divorce reached Twitter and other publications, there was a buzz on Reddit that the reality show star and the singer have matching heart tattoos. “Ok I just went through those highlights and I’m convinced. I was like 75% on board until I got to the heart tattoos. Sealed the deal,” one Reddit user said.

Another fan of RHOBH recalled that Richards was once afraid of needles. “Yes and remember Kyle hates needles, so for her to get a tattoo seems off. Look, she has tons of very rich friends….way richer than Morgan and famous. Why is she so into her? She is 28…..Kyle’s like 53…so it’s basically a daughter. It just seems strange.”

Morgan Wade ex

Another Reddit user said, “Morgan’s ex posted a video on TikTok (it’s now been deleted and god I wish I saved it) about how they went looking at Morgan’s account and they knew “this person” (Kyle) was gonna be at one of Morgan’s shows and it just hurt all over again because Morgan moved on. Ever since then I’ve been PRETTY convinced.”

When the user was asked by another on the forum if the “ex” was a male or a female, there was no conclusive answer.
