Bethenny Frankel has filed for divorce from husband Jason Hoppy.
According to TMZ, the TV star filed for divorce last week in New York City. The couple had announced their plans to separate on December 23.
“This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family,” Frankel said in a statement. “We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority. This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.”
The pair married in 2010 and have one daughter together, 2-year-old Bryn. Their relationship and marriage were chronicled on two reality series, “Bethenny Getting Married?” and “Bethenny Ever After…”. Earlier this week, reports surfaced that the estranged couple was still living together, despite the separation.
According to RadarOnline, Frankel and Hoppy have a prenup. The Skinnygirl mogul is worth an estimated $12 million, according to Forbes.
