Real Housewife Bethenny Frankel is suing her former husband, Jason Hoppy, seeking full custody of their 7-year-old daughter Bryn, People reports.
It appears that the agreement the two exes had reached two months did not last for too long. At that time, Frankel and Hoppy appeared willing to put their differences aside – meaning she was willing to renounce the harassment and stalking charges she had filed against him after his misconduct at their daughter’s school. In his turn, he agreed to a plea deal known as a family adjournment in contemplation of dismissal. This was confirmed by a New York District Attorney representative, in late October.
The plea deal consists in Hoppy staying away from Frankel, from her home and her place of business, for six months. If he complies, charges will be dismissed.
In the midst of all this, Bethenny Frankel filed the custody papers, asking for full custody of their daughter, Bryn.
It was in 2013 that Bethenny first filed for divorce. In 2014, the estranged couple came to an agreement regarding custody arrangements – they would co-parent.
According to Page Six, Frankel reopened the divorce case last week, on December 6.
Frankel has been very open about her divorce and the struggles it posed along the years. “I don’t know why I’m being punished this way,” she was confessing in May, during an episode of The Real Housewives of New York. “My custody situation is over, my financial settlement is over, my apartment is sold, and yet I sometimes feel hopeless. And I sometimes feel like my ex is untouchable and I’m not going to be able to get out of this.”
And during the Reunion, she described the divorce experience, through tears, as “torment and torture”. She told Andy Cohen: “I don’t care what happens, I have faith that somehow I will be able to live a normal free life.”
