Bethenny Frankel filed for divorce last week against Jason Hoppy. Now I has emerged that Bethenny, who is reportedly worth between $25 million and $55 million, has filed legal docs requesting a whole heap of money from her soon to be ex-husband Jason Hoppy.
The 42-year-old TV personality, chef, author and entrepreneur filed her petition at a New York courthouse earlier this week,after the couple separated late last year.
Her demands include:
Child support – retroactive from the date she filed for divorce
Medical, dental, optical, therapeutic, and orthodontic expenses for HER as well as her child
Life insurance that makes both her and her child beneficiaries
Jason does get a pretty good income from real estate, so she wants him out of their marital residence for good. Bethenny is asking for exclusive occupancy.
Bethenny wants primary physical custody of 2-year-old Bryn and has also requested a judge to enforce their prenuptial agreement dated March 23, 2010, which was signed 5 days before they got married.
This might all sound like Bethenny Frankel is playing hardball, but of a friend of her says that she wants to work the divorce settlement out privately and amicably.
“All Bethenny cares about is that it works out the best way possible for Bryn,” the source said.
Is that what it sounds like to you?
Bethenny Frankel says she understands why some fans are judging her for her decision to file for divorce from Jason Hoppy.
