A decision has been reached in one part of Bethenny Frankel’s ongoing divorce battle with her estranged husband Jason Hoppy.
Jason's attorney, Bernard Clair, exclusively tells In Touch that the husband and wife met in appellate court, where four judges not only determined that the Real Housewives of New York star no longer has to pay temporary support to her ex, but also that rejected her argument that she was the sole owner of their Manhattan apartment just because she paid for it.
“Jason was thrilled that his wife’s argument that just because she paid for the condominium apartment, that she was therefore the sole owner was rejected. By rejecting that argument and requiring an evidentiary hearing, Jason is looking forward to his day in court,” Mr. Clair tells In Touch.
The lawyer explains the apartment is currently owned by “no one,” because it was owned by a trust, which has since been invalidated by law.
But it wasn’t all good news for Jason.
“Of course, Jason was not so happy with the decision to deny him temporary support and agreed with the judge who would not go along with the other judges,” Mr. Clair continues.
Following the appellate decision, both parties will be able to explore their options with a hearing at civil court in the near future.
