Surprising developments continue to unfold in regards to Yolanda Foster’s recent divorce from Grammy Award winning artist David Foster. In the latest round of shocking reports, David is now blaming Yolanda’s involvement with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as being a source of his recent failures in the music industry.
According to the Daily Mail, an inside source recently revealed that his wife’s appearance on the reality show was one reason why his record label, Verve Music Group, is hurting for business.
“David’s record label is shutting down… and he is blaming her for this failure because he thinks the Housewives show has hurt him,” the source stated.
Apparently, David’s main source of contention is how the show has failed to benefit him in the same way it has helped Yolanda’s daughters succeed in the fashion industry. Yolanda’s two daughters, Gigi and Bella Hadid, are both models who have seen their success sky rocket during their mother’s time on the show.
“David likes to stay relevant. He’s had success and was a big deal… so I think [the show made him] feel like he doesn’t hold the same place in pop culture,” the source revealed. “Maybe it’s a reality check because her daughters are pop culture. I’m sure he’s upset her kids’ careers are popping off and his aren’t. He’s competitive in that way.”
Yolanda and David made the shocking divorce announcement via a statement with E! News. Although the two did not cite specific reasons for their divorce, it is thought their financial problems are at the heart of the decision to end their marriage.
Meanwhile, the current season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills continues to unfold and Yolanda is doing her best to cope with her new situation. “I hope to be moving forward to a brighter future and I’m just trying to get through it one day at a time,” the reality star shared.
In her attempts to move on with her life, Yolanda Foster has relied heavily on her children for support. “My Gigi, my Bella and my Anwar. My forever. I guess that’s my only forever,” she stated in an interview with People.
At the same time, fans were not the only one shocked by the announcement that Yolanda and David have decided to break up. According to International Business Times, Yolanda’s RHOBH co-stars were very much taken by surprise after learning of her divorce.
One of those Housewives surprised to learn of the divorce was Lisa Vanderpump, who recently sat down with Us Weekly and explained how she has reached out to Yolanda and offered her support.
“I saw her last night. I have reached out to her before, and I, I just feel very sad about that. So I just feel very sad about that because I didn’t expect it, and I always thought she always had this unbelievable marriage,” Vanderpump explained in the interview. “So I’m sad about that. Very sad about it,” she said. “I didn’t see it coming, and I hate that.”
In addition to Vanderpump, Kyle Richards has also expressed her surprise at learning about the controversial split. During her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with host Andy Cohen, Richards offered her condolences and stated that she thought Yolanda’s struggle with Lyme disease may have also played a part in the couple’s divorce.
Although the divorce proceedings are still ongoing, fans will likely learn more about the situation surrounding Yolanda and David’s break up as season 6 of the reality series continues to unfold.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Sunday nights on Bravo.
