Their divorce battle is turning as nasty as that of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, and now it is Bethenny Frankel and estranged husband, Jason Hoppy’s time to face off in court.
In Touch is exclusively reporting that the duo, who are currently in the process of a bitter divorce and custody battle over their daughter, Bryn, 2, headed to court this morning at 10:30 a.m.
The mag reports;
While Bethenny, 42, and Jason, 41, faced off behind the closed doors of a NYC courtroom, sources say tensions are running high as the pair battle over various details of the divorce.
The pair, who initially agreed to “continue to amicably co-parent” their daughter after their separation, have both since filed for sole custody of Bryn. In addition, Jason has also requested Bethenny pay all of his and Bryn’s medical bills and his lawyer fees. Jason wants to remain the beneficiary on Bethenny’s life insurance policy and demands “exclusive use” of their marital residence.
Bethenny and Jason announced their separation in December and the Skinnygirl entrepreneur filed for divorce just after the new year. At the end of January, Bethenny obtained the same legal team used by Katie Holmes during her speedy divorce to Tom Cruise, likely hoping for the same quick results.
With tons at stake and tensions high, Bethenny is eager for their disputes to be resolved.
“It’s just a very brutal, unnatural situation,” Bethenny recently said of her split. “Divorce is the most difficult thing you could ever go through in your entire life.”
Let’s see how this develops throughout the day.
