Luann de Lesseps Accused Of Not Taking Her Probation Seriously, Luann Says She ‘Remains Committed’ To Sobriety After Failing Alcohol Test!

According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE courtesy via the Florida Department of Corrections, Luann de Lesseps was accused of violating her probation twice — once by not providing sufficient documentation of completed AA meetings, and by failing an alcohol test in late April.

The docs state that the Real Housewives of New York City star “admitted to drinking 2 glasses of mimosas after a performance she had in Chicago” after she failed an alcohol test by a New York Probation Officer on April 21.

In response, the Bravo reality star was “offered to immediately enroll in outpatient treatment and she declined due to her touring schedule,” the documents said. “The subject was also given the option to be fitted with an alcohol ankle monitoring device in which she declined stated that it is too intrusive.”

The documents also note that the former Countess had previously violated her probation by failing “to provide sufficient documentation of completed AA meetings” to her West Palm Beach-based probation officer. According to the papers, de Lesseps had only provided documentation from five meetings despite being ordered to go to two per week.

“It appears to affiant that the subject is not serious about her sobriety of the orders of the court,” according to the documents. “In order to effectively address [her] current relapse, de Lesseps has to be ‘available’ to participate.”

No decision has been made on how to proceed with the case yet, according to the documents. Luann’s probation is currently scheduled to conclude on Aug. 28.

Meanwhile, Luann de Lesseps claims she is taking the necessary steps to remain sober after admitting to drinking again following her 2017 Palm Beach arrest. “I take my sobriety very seriously and like many in my situation, it is a daily struggle,” de Lesseps tells PEOPLE in a statement. “I remain committed to doing whatever it takes to continue living a healthy sober lifestyle.”

An insider close to Luann told the publication that “Luann takes this all very seriously. She’s remained positive and hopeful along this journey, and has already completed her community service and her MADD course. She continues to attend AA meetings on a regular basis, too. Her friends are all continuing to rally behind her, and know that sobriety is one day at a time,” said the source.
