David Foster opened up about his split from former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Yolanda Hadid during the taping of his new Netflix documentary, David Foster: Off the Record. The split occurred in 2016 after just four years of marriage.
According to a July 1 report from Us Weekly magazine, David confirmed on his new show that he did not call it quits with Yolanda due to the fact that she was suffering from Lyme disease. She was diagnosed with the illness just a short time after their wedding in November of 2011.
“The fact of the matter is, that is not the reason why I left,” David stated. “It was for a different reason, which I will never disclose.”
Looking back at the time he spent with Yolanda, David said that he was frequently recognized for his role alongside his wife on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. While David wasn’t a full-time cast member of the series, he was seen on and off from Season 3 until Season 6 and still gets recognized by fans years after his last cameo.
Although some Bravo fans would surely be excited to cross paths with the music producer, he isn’t always thrilled with the notoriety he’s gained as a reality star, and he said on his show that he would love to remind the people who have come up to him that he has won an impressive 16 Grammys.
“‘I’ve sold half a billion records. F**k that show,'” he would love to say.
While Yolanda and David split in late 2015, just one month after celebrating their four-year wedding anniversary, their divorce wasn’t finalized until two years later, in 2017.
Prior to marrying Yolanda in 2011, David was married three other times, to Linda Thompson, Rebecca Dyer, and B.J. Cook, and because of his many marriages, David often finds that he is more known for his chaotic personal life and his stints on reality television than his music.
“I was married to Linda who was married to [Caitlyn] Jenner, who then married Kris Kardashian, and had the Jenner kids and the Kardashian kids and then I was married Yolanda Hadid, who had Gigi and Bella,” he explained, also noting that he shares daughters with Rebecca and B.J.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, David celebrated his one-year anniversary with his current wife, Katharine McPhee, at the end of last month, and in honor of the occasion, the former American Idol contestant shared a stunning photo of herself posing alongside David in her Zac Posen wedding gown on Instagram.
