After RadarOnline.com exclusively blew the lid of Lodge’s numerous divorces — from ex-wife Karla Lodge in 2005 and Tonya Compton in 2013 — a source close to The Real Housewives of Orange County star told Radar “Vicki feels betrayed” by her man.
“All of this stuff coming out about Steve’s past marriages have thrown Vicki for a headspin because she didn’t know all of it,” the insider said.
“She knew that Steve and his exes did not end on good terms, but these details that are coming out and that are undeniable have really caused some serious issues between them.”
And rightfully so!
In the papers obtained by Radar from Superior Court of California, County of Riverside, Steve filed for divorce from Karla Lodge in December 2005, citing irreconcilable differences.
Since then, Karla has accused her ex-husband of everything from “hiding assets” to “leaving his family” and “not being an active father” to his two children, Amanda and James, who were 14 and 12, respectively, at the time of their parents separation.
In their divorce documents, Karla also claimed that Steve had been sharing an apartment with his girlfriend at the time, which goes against their religious beliefs.
Five years later, Steve got married again, to ex-wife Tonya Compton. However, after only three years their marriage ended in March 2013, with Steve, again, citing “irreconcilable differences” as a reason for their split.
However, as Radar reported, Steve was hit with a restraining order by Tonya’s boyfriend Michael Thomas, who she had an extra-marital affair with.
“Mr. Lodge appeared at a hotel I was staying and checked in at the same hotel. He called my room from the lobby twice and attempted to identify my room number. Mr. Lodge assaulted me, including but not limited to punching me in the face multiple times,” Michael claimed in the restraining order, which was filed on September 28, 2012.
And to make matters worse, Steve allegedly proposed to his fourth fiancee just months after filing for divorce from Tonya, yet he refuses to propose to Vicki after several years of dating!
According to the source, “Vicki trusted Steve 100 percent and right now she just does not know what to believe anymore.”
