Mohamed Hadid was believed to be on the outs with Lisa Vanderpump earlier this week, but now, things seem to have changed.
Earlier this month, Hadid's ex-wife Yolanda Foster, who stars alongside Vanderpump on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, spoke out on Watch What Happens Live, claiming Hadid hadn't spoke to Vanderpump in eight months, but according to Hadid, he and Vanderpump are still friends.
“She’s still my friend,” Hadid told TMZ while out in West Hollywood, Calif. “Absolutely. She’s always my friend."
The drama between Hadid and Vanderpump began earlier this year when Vanderpump claimed Hadid hadn't said his kids with Foster had Lyme disease. Although Vanderpump never said Hadid denied their illness, the comment snowballed, and eventually, Hadid took to Instagram to shut down rumors.
“I do not wish to make public my family’s private matters, but I would like to make it clear that I completely and unequivocally support my children and their mother," Hadid wrote at the time. "I can only imagine that my response to a question at dinner asking how my kids are doing with ‘fine’ was misconstrued. I have too much respect for all 5 of my children to speak about them publicly in a restaurant or otherwise. I will not speak further on something that should be put to rest now."
Several weeks later, Foster suggested Vanderpump had outright said Hadid denied Bella and Anwar's Lyme disease diagnosis.
“They haven’t spoken for eight months, since she made the statement that Mohamed said the children aren’t sick. He hasn’t spoken to her since,” she told host Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, via Reality Tea.
While Vanderpump has stayed fairly silent in regard to her alleged falling out with Hadid, a TMZ report last week claimed their friendship came to an abrupt end months ago, and noted that Hadid hadn't visited any of Vanderpump's restaurants since her on-air comments about his kids' illness.
