Jason Hoppy isn't backing down!
As you may recall, Bethenny Frankel's ex made headlines this week after it was revealed the businessman was threatened with a lawsuit from the Real Housewives of New York star's current squeeze Dennis Shields over alleged harassment via emails. Oof!

It's said Jason has sent dozens of emails to both Miz Frankel and her beau which are hostile in nature. And it appears as though Hoppy isn't denying these notes either as he's since defended his actions in a new letter to Shields' lawyer. According to TMZ, Frankel's former flame clapped back:
"As a concerned father, I often have to contact others when I cannot reach my daughter through her mother."
Uhhh, there's a difference between trying to reach out to your baby momma and harassment. Just sayin'!
Nonetheless, as long as Dennis is in Jason and Bethenny's daughter's life, the 46-year-old has no plans of leaving Shields alone. He continued:
"I have no choice but to have some type of relationship with him."
Awkward. We can only imagine what a headache this whole thing has been for the Skinnygirl founder as she and Hoppy only settled their VERY contentious divorce back in July!
We have a feeling Jason and Dennis will be facing off against each other in court sometime soon! Can't we all just get along?? Sigh…
