Luann de Lesseps Denies Violating Probation And Asks Prosecutors To Turn Over Drug Test Results!

PEOPLE reports that Luann de Lesseps is requesting that a Palm Beach County, Florida, judge turn over evidence of her alleged failed drug test results, weeks after the Real Housewives of New York City star was accused of violating her probation twice.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the cabaret performer says she wants copies of prosecutors’ evidence in connection with her case, such as police reports, witness statements, testimonies, or expert statements in the case — including “results of physical or mental examinations and of scientific tests, experiments or comparisons.”

The Bravo reality star is set to appear in court later this month, where a judge will determine if she violated her probation.

As previously reported, 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, according to court records obtained by PEOPLE courtesy via the Florida Department of Corrections.

The docs stated that de Lesseps “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 cabaret performer 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.”

Meanwhile, Luann de Lesseps claimed that 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.”
