Bethenny Frankel may be the sole owner of her $5 million apartment, but she can't make her estranged hubby leave!
The Real Housewives of New York star may be ready to move on, but Jason Hoppy refuses to move out!
At least, not until the custody battle over Bryn is settled. So how can he keep living there during the divorce? A New York lawyer informs us:
"Under New York law you can’t evict a spouse from a property that a spouse is living in unless there is violence.
Removing either a husband or wife from an apartment is the same as evicting them, and you can't evict without significant abuse or violence.
You need to show a very compelling reason. Bethenny can't get Jason out."
Wow! It sounds like Bethenny is stuck with Jason for a while.
And that may be just what Jason wants! He won't take off his ring, he won't leave the home. It seems to us like someone is not ready for a divorce.
But will he try to win her back? Well, custody battles can go for months, even years! So we guess time will tell.
