There are bad lawyers and there are good lawyers. And then there are Jason Hoppy & Bethenny Frankel’slawyers, who at this point must be billionaires from handling the multi-year Divorce From Hell the couple is battling out in the press, among other places. Like reality TV.
According to pagesix.com, Jason’s legal team is firing back at accusations that Jason will be seeking more child/spousal support from Bethenny in the divorce settlement. He’s already receiving 10K per month, but some reports have surfaced that he wants more. Not so, say his lawyers. “The recent stories . . . are inaccurate and false, seemingly planted by misguided people who wrongly believe that they are furthering Ms. Frankel’s newly minted effort to cast herself as a victim, like when she recently called herself ‘homeless’ on national TV. Mr. Hoppy continues to work hard to protect his daughter from what appears to be her mother’s inability or unwillingness to put a clamp on uninvited media attention,” commented Jason’s attorney, Bernard Clair.
Not so fast! Just when we thought things we getting down right amicable between Bethenny Frankel and her soon-to-be ex-husband Jason Hoppy, the feuding twosome come to blows once again.
This time it is not over custody of their daughter Bryn, but instead it is over Bethenny’s millions. The former Real Housewives of New York star was spotted leaving a Manhattan Supreme Court, where she is apparently still fighting with Hoppy because she does not want to split her reported $55 million fortune.
Could this finally be the end for Bethenny Frankel's on-going divorce and custody battle? It seems like Bethenny and her estranged husband, Jason Hoppy have been going at each other for years….Oh, wait. They have!
Bethenny and Jason separated way back in December 2012. Since then, they have been fighting over everything from their dream home to custody of their 4-year-old daughter Bryn. After months upon months of fighting back and forth, a judge finally ruled this week that a trial is set for next Wednesday. Everybody get ready, cause this could be nasty!
Bethenny filed for divorce WAY back in January 2013, but she and her soon-to-be-ex, Jason Hoppy, have been squabbling over money, custody and their luxurious apartment ever since. Now Bethenny has been ordered to cough up $100,000 to his lawyers. The payment is to be subtracted from whatever financial settlement they reach — if they ever reach one.
Bethenny Frankel is moving on up….or at least — according to In Touch Weekly — out of her dream home, the apartment that she bought with her soon-to-be ex-husband, Jason Hoppy. The former Real Housewives of New York star filed for divorce in in December 2012 just shy of the couple's three year wedding anniversary, but continued to live with Jason in order to share parenting duties of their daughter, Bryn. Can you say awkward?!?!? Especially since she is in a new relationship with financier Michael “Mac” Cerussi III. Probably time to pack up and leave.
Both Bethenny and Jason came out swinging filing for sole custody and refusing to leave their luxury loft that they bought together. Now, I am not choosing sides, but the $5 million, 3,400 square foot loft was bought after she sold her Skinnygirl cocktail company for a reported $120 million. Just sayin.
Nothing Bethenny Frankel does is an accident, and it’s starting to look like making the demise of her marriage a central plot line to her reality show may have been a segue into its real life dissolution. The ever reputable Star magazine reports that Bethenny and husband Jason Hoppy are headed for divorce court with a source claiming it was “imminent.”
