A addendum from Mazepa’s attorneys provides more details on their allegations against Hochstein. The court document states that Mazepa and Lenny Hochstein began dating in May 2022 after both began divorce proceedings with their spouses. The addendum alleges that Lisa Hochstein made threatening phone calls to Mazepa after her first date with Hochstein.
According to the court documents, “The call made directly by LMH to KM and the threats included, but are not limited to: ‘You will pay’, ‘You don’t know who I am’. I’m going to crush you,’ ‘You wreck whore’, ‘You don’t know who I am, I have a TV show and I’m going to crush you.’”
Hochstein “did not stop on phone calls” with Mazepa, “and has and continues to cyberstalk and bully her “online,” her attorneys said in the addendum. Hochstein’s attorneys said they had evidence Hochstein created fake Instagram accounts to comment on Mazepa’s photos, adding that they were working with Instagram to obtain “additional evidence.”

Mazepa’s lawyers say they also have direct messages and other public posts that they will show in court. “These other messages also threaten deportation, immigration calls, and other threats of harm,” Mazepa’s attorneys wrote, adding that Hochstein “created other fake Instagram accounts and commented on her own posts using other accounts to . . disseminate false information about the petitioner and to further “Hochstein’s” ‘defamation campaign’ in its efforts to further harass, stalk and damage the petitioner and her reputation.”

Hochstein has denied the allegations and her lawyers plan to respond during a court hearing they hope to delay until after she returns from vacation
Lisa Hochstein has denied the allegations made by Mazepa and her lawyers. “Regarding his girlfriend, I am working with my attorney on a legal response to her ridiculous claims that everyone knows are not true,” Hochstein said said Page Six. “What a waste of their time and money.”
she said US Weekly, “She had no respect for my life, my children, or my family…why should I have any respect for her attempt at a sob story?” I will not waste my time and energy responding to a woman who is a self-proclaimed house robber who does nothing but lie. She writes her own version of reality and I can’t wait for my day in court to show the truth.”
Hochstein’s day in court could be slightly delayed. Her attorneys are trying to postpone the Aug. 15 hearing until after Aug. 22 because court filings indicate Hochstein will be on a pre-planned vacation.
