Teresa Giudice’s Lawyer Speaks Out!
James Leonard Jr. spoke to Page Six on Monday, shooting down divorce rumors, despite the couple enduring back-to-back prison sentences.
“Teresa is not talking about getting divorced, she is not thinking about getting divorced and she’s not filing for divorce,” James Leonard Jr. told Page Six. “It’s not happening, not just now, but never. I can’t be any more clear about it.”
Joe Giudice entered prison in March 2016, to serve a 41 month long sentence. He is expected to be released in March 2019 and then handed over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for deportation proceedings to Italy.
Divorce rumors have been swirling around the couple for years — likely fueled by the fact that Joe is facing deportation, upon his release.
Teresa Giudice was spotted with a divorce attorney in January, and in September, questioned Real Housewives of New York star, Luann de Lesseps, about “going through a divorce on TV” during her cabaret show, #CountessandFriends.
Joe and Teresa Giudice will celebrate their 19th wedding anniversary on October 23rd.
