Kim Richards, who completed a rehab stint in July after being arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel for public intoxication, has a staunch supporter — her ex-husband Monty Brinson.

After her rehab stint, the 50-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum was arrested for shoplifting from Target before being hospitalized by concerned family members, according to Us Weekly.

In what may seem an odd twist, Richards' ex-husband is defending his former wife.

In a throwback Instagram picture posted on Tuesday, Brinson captured the pic of the former couple, “One day the people that didn't believe in you will tell everyone how they met you. That quote is in honor of @kimrichards11.”

One day the people that didn't believe in you will tell everyone how they met you. That quote is in honor of @kimrichards11 all I will say at this time besides being best friends, and personally a person who has a great heart is thankful to all her fans and friends for believing in her. Personally I have not seen her but we speak everyday. Do I know everything absolutely. Do I take up for my family and friends absolutely. Do I say it like it is. Absolutely. Is my heart filled with love for everyone absolutely. Without going into detail 90 per-cent of what you read is completely false. But for her fans that have stayed with her through this roller coaster will see her very soon at what she's done best all her life since the age of 4. I'm excited for her. And personally I would like to thank everyone who stood by her through this rough time. Remember everyone in life goes through a rough time one way or another. I always say know the facts before being judgmental #life #love #heart #thankful #blessed #rhobh #friends #family #heart

Personally I have not seen her but we speak everyday," he went on to say. "Do I know everything absolutely. Do I take up for my family and friends absolutely. Do I say it like it is. Absolutely.”

Brinson claims 90 percent of the information concerning Richards' recent arrest and hospitalization is false.

“But for her fans that have stayed with her through this roller coaster will see her very soon at what she's done best all her life since the age of 4,” he wrote. “I’m excited for her. And personally I would like to thank everyone who stood by her through this rough time. Remember everyone in life goes through a rough time one way or another.

Richards and Brinson were married for three years before divorcing in 1988, but the former couple, who shares daughter Brooke, have remained close.

The professional poker player, Brinson, is currently living with Kim Richards as he battles terminal cancer.
