Even though he was a pretty private person, there has been a lot of attention surrounding Bethenny Frankel’s on-again-off-again boyfriend Dennis Shields’ untimely passing. Bethenny’s ex-husband Jason Hoppy even had the audacity to accuse Dennis of having an addiction and used that as “evidence” to question Bethenny’s parenting.
Now reports have come out that Dennis tried to set the record straight in his very last breaths to the EMTs and police before he passed away.
According to an article from TMZ, Dennis said he took prescribed medication and a sleeping pill with the intention of easing the pain from his back injury. Before passing away, Dennis had his assistant administer two doses of Narcan. The EMTs administered a third dose when they showed up on the scene.
The chronic back pain is something that Dennis‘ estranged wife Jill Shields mentioned in an Instagram post after he passed away. She wrote “I am hoping up in heaven you are running around playing basketball and tennis without any back pain.”
Sources told TMZ, that “numerous prescription bottles” were “scattered throughout his apartment.” That same source emphasized that there were “no illicit drugs nor drug paraphernalia” at his apartment.
The autopsy report has not been released and the official cause of death has not been announced.
