Bethenny Frankel’s complaint against her ex-husband Jason Hoppy comes after an incident that happened on Friday at her daughter’s school while her boyfriend, Dennis Shields was present. Hoppy allegedly approached the couple after they had dropped their daughter Bryn off and said, “Okay I see. This is how you want to do this. Okay. You can play your game. It doesn’t matter. You can get 10 lawyers. There’s nothing you can do to stop me. You’ll be sorry. You’ve been warned. I can’t help it.”
According to Page Six, Hoppy allegedly said to Frankel’s boyfriend that “she’s pure evil. You’ve been warned. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.” Frankel then told police she feared for her safety.
The complaint also lists a number of texts and emails sent by Hoppy to Frankel. One sent in August 2016 allegedly reads, “Despite your games. I’ll never let you do to me what your mother did to your father. I’ll never go away.” (Frankel has accused her mother, Bernadette, of “trying to commit suicide in the kitchen in front of me,” and said her childhood was full of “alcoholism, mental illness, and violence.” Her mother has strongly denied these claims, saying, “Bethenny spread vicious and horrible lies about me simply for publicity.”)
In October, Hoppy allegedly wrote to her, “Your definition of harassment is comical. I will continue to communicate with you as I see fit.”
In another incident, he emailed asking for a copy of her life insurance policy. Frankel also claims that between November last year and Jan. 27, Hoppy sent her approximately 160 emails.
A police source told the site, “Bethenny came in [to the precinct] with her lawyer and a few friends. She was making more out of this than it was, that was the overall impression. She’s been involved in a terrible divorce with this guy. And it seemed to us that she was filing the report because she wanted to take revenge on him, get back at him for something he did connected to the divorce. This is common among celebrity types — even C-listers like her — when they’re involved in a bad divorce. We get this a lot. It did not appear to us like Hoppy was going to attack her in any way. He seems like a pretty cool character. But she filed the report and because of that we had cause to arrest him.”
