A patron at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills spotted the music producer there on Sunday afternoon, telling DailyMail.com: ‘There was no sign of Yolanda’.
Viewers of RHOBH have watched as Yolanda, 51, struggled with her health over the past three years, following a devastating diagnosis with Lyme Disease back in 2012.
In July David, a sixteen times Grammy winner, admitted that he struggled to support her at times.
‘I fail some days,’ he told People. ‘You know, I get cranky and then I realize that she’s got it 100 times worse than me. But I just do my best.’

But he also talked of their love affair, saying he penned Yolanda love letters.
‘My wife loves a love note more than she loves a piece of jewelry,’ he said. ‘It is actually harder to do a love note than a piece of jewelry because I got to, like, sit down and really think about what I’m writing.’
While they made reference to their blended family in their shock statement, the former couple have no children together.
However Foster has been married four times and has five daughters while former supermodel Yolanda is a mother to Gigi 20, Bella 19 and Anwar 16 from her first marriage to Mohamed Hadid.
Indeed it was Mohamed who brought his ex Yolanda and his friend David together.
In an interview Foster talked of walking around Mohamed’s home and seeing photos of Yolanda and their children.
He recalled saying: ‘”That’s your ex-wife, and I’d like to meet her.” So he introduced us.’
