The Ethiopian princess who stole away with Real Housewives of New York‘s Countess LuAnn de Lesseps’ husband of 16 years has been revealed as Princess Kemeria Abajobir Abajifar.
The Daily News has reported that Princess Kemeria, a descendant of King Abajifar of Ethiopia’s Gibe region, is tired of being referred to as “the Ethiopian” and would like to be identified by her royal title -which trumps Countess de Lesseps’.
After a close friend of the Countess revealed to the press that Count Alexandre de Lesseps had delivered his “Dear John letter” via email, Countess Luann told People magazine that she was separated from her husband and “It’s been like a death. You go through anger, bereavement. It’s really an end to a part of your life.”
It should be noted that Count Alex, 59, was raised in Khartoum, Sudan and in Tangiers, Morocco.
