The custody battle over their daughter, Bryn, may be over, but Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy have yet to reach a divorce settlement after filling in January of 2013.
Now, as the divorce moves forward, In Touch Weekly can exclusively reveal that Jason has hired an investor to back him up in the proceedings. “It’s like a loan, in exchange for a stake in the outcome,” legal expert Bryan Konoski tells the new issue of In Touch, adding that the pharmaceutical sales exec now stands a better chance at getting what he wants.
And after Jason reportedly demanded a casual $10 million from Bethenny, insisting he helped launch her Skinnygirl cocktail brand, hiring an investor could get him just that. “The investor gets a percentage,” Konoski explains. “But it’s worth it.”
