Things are heating up!
Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy are battling in Family Court in Manhattan, New York, and the stakes were just turned up a notch!
While Bethenny is seeking full custody of their daughter Bryn, and Jason is hoping to get joint custody, Bethenny Frankel's latest testimony has shocked a lot of people! Especially if it's true!
It all started when Bethenny took the stand on Wednesday, and proceeded to claim that her ex had "threatened to destroy her." Here's what she said in a tearful testimony:
"He said, 'I'm going to destroy you. I'm going to have you and your publicist crying and crumbling in a corner. Now you're going to see what I was like on the basketball court. He said, 'You don't know what it's like to have a family, you'll never have a family. Let's go baby.' "
Bethenny's lawyer Allan Mayefsky also had some shocking revelations — if they're true.
Here's what her attorney said:
“He threatened to destroy her. He had her followed and spied on along with their daughter. He hacked into her most private personal email. He has consciously placed his desire for revenge … over the best interests of this family and particularly the child. He has sought to obsessively control their every move through their daughter.”
However Jason's lawyer wasn't backing down, and accused Bethenny Frankel of straight up using their daughter, saying:
"Bethenny Frankel's priority is Bethenny Frankel. In pursuit of career success, she has used the child as a prop."
The attorney then backed these claims up by saying Bethenny had “embarked on a secret endeavor to have a children’s book published” based on Bryn.
The attorney also said:
“Ms. Frankel even arranged for the illustrator to come to her home to follow this child around so that every likeness and every sense of the child could be presented. And that’s not all: This children’s book has the Skinnygirl logo, Skinnygirl being the brand of Ms. Frankel, throughout its pages.”
It seems like all of these two's dirty laundry will be coming out in this bitter custody battle!
The two are due back in court on June 11th where we're sure there will be a lot more information coming everyone's way.
