Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy are still in the middle of a bitter divorce heated custody battle over their 3-year-old daughter, Bryn. Now, In Touch has all the details inside their dramatic court showdown in NYC on Sept. 12.
An eyewitness tells the mag that “they completely avoided eye contact and communication despite being within three feet of each other.”
“As Bethenny made her way past Jason, he put his head down and busied himself on his phone,” the onlooker says, adding that despite still wearing his wedding ring, “he couldn't bring himself to look at her.”
After about 90 minutes, Bethenny’s two lawyers dismissed her — and she couldn’t wait to get out of the same room as her estranged husband.
“She hurried off and seemed eager to leave,” the eyewitness tells In Touch. “Jason was much calmer as he walked out of the building.”
The meeting comes just days after she told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that her marriage crumbled because of “fundamental differences.” The pair filed for divorce earlier this year after almost three years of marriage. They initially said they would co-parent Bryn, but have both since filed for sole custody.
As In Touch reports in this week’s issue, Jason was spotted chatting with his ex’s former RHONY castmate and nemesis Kelly Killoren Bensimon on Sept. 5 — which some say has widened the rift between Jason and Bethenny.
