David and Lesley Beador’s Latest Intimate Photos Puzzle Fans After Mutual Restraining Orders
David Beador’s estranged wife, Lesley Beador, took to her private Instagram account to post a cozy couple photo amid the pair’s contentious divorce, on Tuesday.
The mom of three posted a series of pics snapped during a recent vacation to Yellowstone National Park, kicking off the carousel with a photo of her and the former Real Housewives of Orange County personality sharing an unexpected cuddle.
The couple smiled for the camera as David wrapped his arm around his estranged wife, who rested her hand on his chest.
Lesley captioned the photos — “L k who I bumped into at Yellowstone National Park. My husband!”
Lesley, who also posted pictures of her children, added multiple hashtags but disabled the comment section.
Bravo fans expressed confusion under a screenshot of the image, which was posted on an Instagram fan account.
One fan commented — “Ring still on, so…looking for headlines? They’re back and forth more than a tennis match.”
Another person called the on-again-off-again lovebirds “the picture of dysfunctional.”
One user chimed in — “God they are disgusting – unhinged!”
David, 58, married Lesley while she was pregnant with his child, in October 2020. Lesley gave birth to their daughter, Anna, in February 2021.
David and RHOC star, Shannon Beador, called it quits after being married for 17 years, in October 2017.
David filed for divorce from Lesley after the duo had been married for nearly two years. They went on to reconcile, and David had the divorce dropped the following month. The pair refiled their divorce petitions a couple of months later. In June, the couple filed for temporary restraining orders against each other amid allegations of domestic violence.
Lesley alleged in legal docs that the father of her two other children, Eriks Pukke, filed for a temporary order against the former Bravo personality, in August 2022. Lesley claimed that David had physically “abused” her, her children and their pets. She also claimed that he “destroyed” her property, “threatened” her, and “sexually abused” her.
Lesley claimed that her estranged husband had “controlled” her, as he blocked her from “getting food or basic needs,” stopped her from “accessing or earning money” and “isolated” her from her loved ones. She alleged that David got physical with her mother, back in February.
“Mr. Beador begged my mother not to press charges or get a restraining order so she did not do so. My mother sometimes stays with me to watch Anna in my home and Mr. Beador has expressed that he ‘hates her.’ He has called my mother derogatory names and called her fat many times both to my mother and to me,” she stated.
David claimed that the allegations were simply “retaliatory,” as he had been the first to file for divorce and request legal and physical custody of their child.
“Divorcing a narcissist is never easy. It’s messy,” Lesley told Page Six via a statement. “But worth the peace my family now feels at home. We are no longer walking on eggshells and waiting for the rug to be pulled out from under us.”
