Bethenny Frankel had a horrible week after learning about her on again, off again boyfriend Dennis Shields’ death. But what made the whole thing even worse is the fact that amid her custody battle with former husband Jason Hoppy, the man decided to use Shields’ passing against her.
Now, one insider tells HollywoodLife that the Real Housewives of New York star is ‘sickened’ by Hoppy’s ‘disgraceful’ move.
Robert Wallack, Jason’s defense attorney, argued in court that Dennis Shields’ passing ‘raises serious concerns about Ms. Frankel’s parental judgment.’
‘Bethenny is sickened by Jason’s latest claims in court, it’s a low blow, even by his standards, to try and use Dennis’ death to his advantage. Bethenny thinks it just shows Jason’s true colors though, how manipulative he is, and how he will stop at nothing to lash out at her,’ the insider shared with the outlet.
Apparently, ‘Bethenny is still reeling from losing Dennis. It’s really disgraceful that Jason would pull a stunt like this, although she really shouldn’t expect anything less from him at this stage.’
Despite the fact that Bethenny is still to address these reports, supposedly, Jason’s lawyer also requested the court to have her tested for drug abuse.
That being said, HollywoodLife claims the judge dealing with the case thought Jason’s legal team was going too far as well.
He reportedly said: ‘now you’re throwing ‘grenades.’’
Previous reports by the same outlet stated that Dennis told the medical team at the scene that in an effort to relieve his back pain caused by an injury, he took Vicodin, his prescribed oxycodone, and a sleeping pill.
What do you think of Jason’s vicious legal move?
