Bethenny Frankel Requests Full Custody Of Her Daughter Citing Her Ex-Husband As "Extremely Harmful"

Date March 7, 2019

The divorce between The Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy is nothing short of unpleasant. Although their split was announced in 2012, the divorce was only finalized in 2016, but the former couple still spends most a lot of their time in and out of court proceedings.

In 2014, Bethenny and Jason settled for the joint custody of their daughter Bryn. However, a few years after, Jason was arrested for stalking his family, and now, Frankel demands full custody of her 9-year-old girl.

Inside the courtroom

Frankel seems fed up with her ex-husband's behavior and presented a persuasive case to the court as to why she should be the sole guardian of Bryn. 

According to RadarOnline, these were Bethenny's lawyer's argument against Hoppy:

Why are we doing this? To protect the child. The father’s behavior before and after their marriage is extremely harmful to Bryn. His abusive behavior towards her not only damages her relationship with her mother, but to everyone else in her life.

It's clear that Bethenny is trying to protect her daughter, especially considering how difficult their divorce was on the young girl.

At the beginning of 2018, the judge ordered for Bryn to visit the psychologist amid the trauma and stress of her parents' separation.
