KATHARINA Mazepa, Lenny Hochstein’s girlfriend, has revealed the “abuse” she suffered from her ex, Shilo Mazepa, during and after their marriage in exclusive court documents obtained by The U.S. Sun.
Katharina, 27, has been embroiled in an ongoing divorce battle with her former husband since filing to end the marriage in June.
The former couple got married three years prior in Italy before moving to the United States together. They separated in September 2021.
In court documents exclusively obtained by The U.S. Sun, Katharina alleges Shilo, 34, has “engaged in a pattern of stalking, surveillance, verbal threats and physical attacks.”
The Austrian model recounted multiple “domestic violence” incidents in the October 2022 filing.
In one instance, Katharina alleges Shilo, a US diplomat residing in Washington D.C., “hit” her and “left her with a black eye.”
During a recent attack, Katharina claimed he entered her residence drunk “in the middle of the night” and “started threatening her and pinned her down on the bed and assaulted her to an [extent] of leaving visible bruises on her body.”
He also allegedly forced her to “look him in the eyes while [he] assaulted her.”
Prior to this, he allegedly “bumped into” her at a hotel in Miami Beach and showed up unannounced in Austria, Katharina’s hometown, this past summer because he found out that she would be there introducing Lenny, 56, to her family.
The docs say that Katharina remains “frightened of him” and has since “found a safe haven” where he can’t locate her and changed her phone number.

Shilo has been stalling divorce proceedings, per the docs, since he “wishes to prolong his two-and-a-half-year marriage.”
A hired process server attempted to serve him the docs on different occasions and hasn’t been successful.
He demands they “attend couple’s therapy before accepting service” and wants her to agree to settlement terms in order to proceed with the divorce, according to the docs.
His continued threats, as dictated by the fashion model in the filing, included him alleging that Katharina only married him for immigration purposes.
However, a few months ago, she got a 10-year Green Card approved based on an abuse waiver with a filing nearly 600 pages long, which proved the marriage was real, per the docs.
“Thankfully, my immigration case is bulletproof,” Katharina told The U.S. Sun.
Shilo provided a response to The U.S. Sun’s request for comment in a statement: “Similar to what Lisa stated, these are all baseless allegations. I’ll be working with my attorney on an appropriate legal response to this defamation.”
In a spin of things, Katharina claimed exclusively to The U.S. Sun that Real Housewives of Miami star Lisa Hochstein, 40, got involved with her battle against her ex by communicating with Shilo.
Katharina and Lisa’s ex, Dr. Leonard Hochstein, began dating after Lenny decided to divorce Lisa in May 2022.
A source close to Lisa confirmed that she had been in touch with Shilo at the time of her divorce to “compare notes” on both of their marriages.
Katharina filed a restraining order against Lisa, accusing her of stalking and harassment, in July 2022.
It was dismissed on November 28 after the judge found no “just cause” and “insufficient” evidence.
Lisa’s attorney, Jayne Weintraub, told The U.S. Sun: “Lisa Hochstein was fully exonerated in a court of law last week. Lisa is now free from all of Katharina’s lies and false accusations. Thankfully, the judge saw through her antics and dismissed the case.”
Katharina’s rep added in a statement: “Moving forward, Katharina hopes that she will not have to file a new restraining order against Lisa Hochstein in the future.”
Lenny and Lisa had been married for nearly 13 years prior to the plastic surgeon filing for divorce in Miami, in which he cited “irreconcilable differences.”
They share two children together: Logan, 7, and Elle, 3.
The former couple’s ongoing divorce battle has also gotten messy. Lisa has previously said that Lenny cheated on her with Katharina and that her ex had an “emotional affair” with Katharina prior to their split.
Lenny, up until this point, has denied cheating in his marriage.
Katharina, for her part, provided an update on her relationship with Lenny.
“Things are absolutely wonderful. We just got back from Tulum, which was perfect just to be together and detach a bit from the drama,” Katharina told The U.S. Sun. “We have been living together since the summer. The relationship is better than ever.”
Lenny and Lisa’s divorce plays out in new episodes of season 5 of RHOM that dropped December 8 on Peacock.
Katharina told The U.S. Sun: “Lisa and Lenny had agreed to wait to officially file for divorce after the filming of the show ended. She was putting on a façade of a perfect marriage.”
At the end of an explosive new episode, Lenny’s voice was captured on microphones, dishing details on his and Lisa’s relationship- hinting that he might have cheated on his wife at the time.
He’s overheard telling his friend Vito that he’s not sleeping with Lisa anymore “because then I would be cheating on who I really care about,” referring to Katharina, a source confirmed.
