Real Housewives star Kyle Richards fuels relationship rumours with new tattoo amid Mauricio Umansky separation

Real Housewives star Kyle Richards fuels relationship rumours with new tattoo amid Mauricio Umansky separation

Speculation has been running wild

Fans are convinced that Real Housewives alum Kyle Richards has a new love interest amid the split from her husband.

Kyle - much-loved star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - is rumoured to have rustled up a brand new romance with a certain country music star, just months after her split from second husband, Mauricio Umansky.

The Hollywood duo called time on their romance in June 2023 following 28 years together, with a source close to the family later telling People Magazine that they'd been 'separated for a while'.

"[They] are still living under the same roof," they claimed at the time. "They remain amicable as they figure out what’s next for them and their family."

Since then, US reality star and mother-of-four Kyle has been spotted cosying up to a certain musician - none other than 'Wilder Days' hitmaker, Morgan Wade - with speculation circulating as to whether the pair have already embarked on a romance or whether they're just mates.

Earlier this year, the gal pal duo were papped together at 55-year-old Kyle's birthday soiree in Mexico.

And just weeks later, photos taken at the filming for Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen saw 29-year-old musician Wade seemingly caressing the actor's arms.

The pair even went on to film a rather risque music video together for the singer's 2023 track 'Fall In Love With Me' - a segment of which saw the pair feeding one another fruit and taking a bubble bath together.

In the weeks that followed the video's release, celebrity gossip account DeuxMoi claimed that Kyle and Morgan had plans to 'premiere their relationship in a very public way', by posing for an upcoming 'highly coveted magazine cover'.

That said, Halloween star Kyle quickly shut down the rumours, claiming the speculation 'gotta be about somebody else'.

Despite her insisting, fans this week still believe the duo have something more intimate to hide.

This comes as Kyle today revealed a brand new piece of body art on social media, which some followers have interpreted as a tribute to Wade.

The widely-adored socialite debuted her new tattoo on Instagram in a reel, showing that Los Angeles artist Amanda Merkatz had drawn the outline of a cowboy hat on her arm.

Kyle's ex Umansky, 53, previously complained about his wife's love of body art, telling her in a previous Real Housewives episode: "No Bean, that’s enough. Five tattoos is a lot. I will not allow that."

Kyle replied at the time: "If I want one I’m going to get one. It’s my body. You don’t have a choice."

Though the on-screen star hasn't yet addressed the meaning behind her latest tattoo addition, fans have been left wondering whether it could be a subtle shout-out to country star Morgan.

Others, however, have postulated that it may be a tribute to one of her known favourite fashion brands Kemo Sabe.

"Kyle Richards gets a new tattoo!! A hat! It’s probably a reference to Kemo Sabe, her love of hats or Morgan Wade… maybe all the above!" one fan penned on social media.

Another teased: "Everybody knows they are a couple, why the suspense? Are you surprised?"

TYLA has contacted Kyle and Wade's reps for comment.
