Midst Lisa Hochstein and Lenny Hochsteinhis ongoing divorce, his girlfriend, Catherine Mazepahas claimed that the reality TV star tried to molest her amid their budding romance.

Us weekly can only confirm that Mazepa, 26, has granted a restraining order against the Real Housewives of Miami star, 39, on Wednesday July 27.

“I have chosen not to reply to Lisa with threatening or obnoxious messages, but to deal with it professionally and appropriately through the justice system,” the model said exclusively Us in an opinion. “I’m confident that through these files, the public can learn the real truth, which is that I didn’t date Lenny until he and Lisa broke up. … It wasn’t until after Lenny broke up that we started dating and dating.”

Mazepa’s representative noted that the injunction was originally filed to stop Lisa’s alleged bullying and harassment, stating that Lisa’s allegations “were made for the sole purpose of safeguarding Catherine’s physical safety, her emotional well-being, damaging their reputation and business”. The court documents further claimed that the Bravo personality created multiple “finsta” accounts on Instagram to post false rumors that Mazepa and Lenny, 55, were having an affair before his divorce.

“The truth is, I’m not a home wrecker, I’m not someone who destroys a family, and I’m not someone who acts in an inappropriate way, as Lisa has said publicly,” Mazepa said Us. “This motion will prove that, and the injunction she has already been awarded by a judge will hopefully stop Lisa’s online bullying, stalking, harassment and threatening behavior.”

She added: “It is unfortunate that Lisa has taken the low road to making such false allegations, which are believed to be made to gain an advantage over Lenny in the divorce proceedings, which is inappropriate. I look forward to just focusing on protecting my physical and emotional well being, my reputation, protecting my business relationships and living a peaceful life with my boyfriend.”

Us previously confirmed in May that Lenny and Lisa had split after nearly 13 years of marriage. Weeks earlier, they sparked breakup speculation after the plastic surgeon was spotted partying with his now-girlfriend.

“A few weeks ago I denied this because I’m trying my best to protect my family during this process,” said Lenny – who shares son Logan, 6, and daughter Elle, 2, with his estranged wife Us At the time, he denied affair allegations. “It’s true that I see Katharina, but all of this happened only after the decision to divorce was made. This is a very difficult time and I am asking for some privacy so we can best take care of our children who mean the world to us.”

The Canadian native, who married Lenny in October 2009, recounted Us in her own statement that she felt “taken aback” by their split. “With two young children involved, as a mother, I will focus all of my energy and time on them,” she said. “I am taken aback by his behavior and his reckless handling of the situation.”

Lisa has yet to publicly address Mazepa’s recent allegations.

For her part, the Austrian native continues to focus on her romance. “Katharina and Lenny are in a solid and serious relationship, having recently moved in together as a couple in Miami,” says their publicist. Louise Warwicktold exclusively Us in an opinion. “They are both currently spending time together in Europe, where he is meeting their entire family for the first time. We hope this submission will help Katharina continue her relationship with Lenny peacefully.”

Lisa didn’t respond immediately Us weekly‘s request for comment.
