Jason Hoppy & Betheny Frankel Divorce
I took the “maniac” out so no one is offended.
I knew something was odd when Bethenny Frankel did not file a motion to have press out of the court room as she did every other time when she and soon-to-be ex husband Jason Hoppy were (are) battling in court.
Bethenny Frankel filed for divorces from Jason Hoppy after barely two years of marriage. After the couple conceived a beautiful child [Bryn Hoppy] and
filming two Reality TV shows “Bethenny Getting Married” and “Bethenny Ever After” (All About Bethenny) the two called it quits.
Bethenny Frankel is in an going custody battle with Jason Hoppy; apparently Bethenny refuses to settle for $10 million dollars. I know this sounds outrageous, however, if you remember from the beginning, Bethenny has done everything in her power to hold up the proceedings hoping Jason would have to give in due to his financial situation. Nope. Matter in fact, the judge made Bethenny pay $100k towards his legal bills last month. Jason quit his job as a pharmaceutical rep to help Bethenny run her Skinny Girl Cocktail Line — with out Jason, Bethenny would not be a multi millionaire she is. Jason helped Bethenny negotiate a deal for reportedly $120 million dollars. Here is where it gets tricky: The former couple has a prenup agreement. Jason claims the couple had a verbal agreement that Bethenny would take care of him — he quit his job to help her.
When you think about it; remember when Bethenny got sued by her ex manager and they ended up settling? Have you read the actual court documents? I did! You can read them too at the end of this post.
From PageSix Bethenny’s Attorney Said;
Frankel’s lawyer Allan Mayefsky, who repped Katie Holmes in her split from Tom Cruise, said the Skinnygirl’s husband went “to war” when their marriage deteriorated in 2012.
“He threatened to destroy her,” Mayefsky said. “He had her followed and spied on along with their daughter. He hacked into her most private personal email.”
”He has consciously placed his desire for revenge … over the best interests of this family and particularly the child,” Mayefsky concluded. “He has sought to obsessively control their every move through their daughter.”
Frankel wants primary custody and sole decision-making authority for 4-year-old Bryn, while Jason Hoppy is arguing for shared custody.
Mayefsky said his client is a “very, very involved mother” whose success will benefit the child. source
From People Jason’s Attorney Said;
His [Jason Hoppy] attorney Bernard Clair, who has also repped boldface clients like Lauren Silverman, said that Frankel shared her husband’s taste for revenge. She moved out of the family’s Hudson Street condo earlier this year and stripped the home of all their daughter’s favorite things. “The clothes were gone, the favorite stuffed animals gone, the favorite dollhouse gone,” Clair recounted, saying the removal propelled little Bryn into a tailspin of confusion and disappointment. When Hoppy went to cook his daughter a meal to calm her, he was shocked at what Frankel had allegedly done. “He found that every single utensil had been taken but replaced with plastic knives, forks and spoons like you would pick up from a takeout place. One pot was left,” Clair said. Clair also criticized Frankel for using “the child as a prop … in the pursuit of her own career and her own brand.” He said she “embarked on a secret endeavor to have a children’s book published” this coming September about Bryn’s life. “Ms. Frankel even arranged for the illustrator to come to her home to follow this child around so that every likeness and every sense of the child could be presented,” Clair said. “And that’s not all: This children’s book has the Skinnygirl logo, Skinnygirl being the brand of Ms. Frankel, throughout its pages,” Clair said. source
I never really cared for Bethenny, however, they both need to stop and think of Bryn. Oh! That’s right, Jason agreed to split custody 50/50, Bethenny refused and leaked crap to the media all the time.
One would have to believe that Bethenny made the deal all by herself.. NOT!
