Bethenny Frankel Is Done Paying $12,000 a Month in Spousal Support to Ex Jason Hoppy

Real Housewives of New York star and business woman Bethenny Frankel no longer has to pay her estranged husband Jason Hoppy almost $12,000 a month in temporary spousal support.

The amount she was paying, was a form of support paid by a higher earning party while divorce proceedings are pending. Clearly Frankel who created the Skinnygirl brand (which includes low fat alcohol and snacks) was the money maker in the relationship.

Frankel’s attorney, Allan Mayefsky, said in a statement that the 45-year-old reality star is “pleased” with the court’s decision.

“Bethenny is particularly pleased that the trust agreement, which was used in an attempt to obtain joint ownership of an apartment that she purchased, was rendered void and invalid due to fraudulent behavior in connection with the execution of the agreement,” Mayefsky said. “We believe that the evidence, including evidence of the husband’s fraudulent behavior and unclean hands, will clearly demonstrate that Bethenny, who is the sole purchaser, is also the sole owner. We are also pleased the court invalidated the award of interim spousal support to Jason based on his waiver in the prenuptial agreement.”

Despite the court ruling in Frankel’s favour regarding monthly support, she and Hoppy – who share custody of their 5-year-old daughter Bryn – are still set to battle over the ownership of their $5 million Tribeca apartment which Frankel purchased while they were married and which Hoppy is still living in. Sadly, during season 7 of the Real Housewives of New York, viewers saw the Skinnygirl creator living out of hotels while her ex kept the Tribeca home.

The couple split in 2012 after two years of marriage.
