The divorce of Real Housewives of Miami stars Lisa and Lenny Hochstein sent shockwaves through the reality television world this week, as it was revealed the famed plastic surgeon - dubbed 'boob god' - had already moved on with young Austrian model Katharina Mazepa. 

While Lenny, 55, maintains that his new romance with Katharina, 26, did not take place until 'after the decision was made to get divorced' from Lisa, 39, - reports of red flags in their marriage have been rife for years.

On the surface the couple had been keeping up appearances, living together on a newly-constructed property on Miami's ultra-exclusive Star Island, with the palatial property boasting nine bedrooms, a gigantic infinity pool and a huge closet Lisa dubbed her 'woman cave.'

The Canadian-born beauty even boasted about the benefits of being married to a plastic surgeon and having easy access to treatments, once declaring: 'My husband built the perfect wife!'

But behind the glossy façade, the couple were struggling to paper over the cracks in their almost 13-year-marriage - as they battled fertility struggles, an emotional affair, and Lisa's 'addiction' to getting work done. 

The couple married in 2009 and now share two children together; a son, Logan, six, and daughter, Elle, two, both born via surrogate. Though it was their fertility issues that showed the first sign of trouble in their relationship. 

After joining RHOM's second season in 2012, viewers began to see Lisa opening up about the hardships she and Lenny faced, as she compared their life to a 'nightmare' after suffering three miscarriages and four failed attempts at IVF.

Just three years after getting married, Lisa admitted on the show that she worried her not being able to have children had put a strain on their relationship. 

It recently emerged that a year later in 2013, the pair nearly split up for good when Lisa found out that Lenny had an 'emotional affair' with a woman during a brief separation, as their reality show went off the air and stopped filming.

'We were already separated. We were going through a difficult time trying to have children. It wasn't happening,' she said this year on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.

'So we were separating just because we were having a really hard time, you know, conceiving a child. So then he strayed. And I found out because I was very crafty, and I have all of his passwords, you know? And so, I saw some things. But we were separated, so yeah, that's how I found out.'
