Multiple sources are reporting that Jason Hoppy was arrested last Friday when he showed up at Bryn’s Manhattan private school. Hoppy has been accused of sending hundreds of abusive emails and making angry comments on Facetime toward Bethenny since last November. At that time, Hoppy was alledgedly copying Bethenny’s current beau, Dennis Shields in the emails. Shields sent Hoppy a cease and desist in response to all the emails in November. Since sending the letter, the emails have not decreased.
Jason apparently approached Bethenny while she was dropping Bryn off at school Friday morning yelling, “I will destroy you.”
An NYPD spokeswoman confirmed the allegations to Page Six :
The complainant said Hoppy had sent numerous emails and FaceTime calls numbering in the hundreds after a cease and desist letter was sent on November 22, 2016. On Friday, January 27, the suspect approached her and a friend at her child’s school at around 8:15 a.m. and tried to provoke a fight. He said, ‘I will destroy you, you can get all the lawyers you want, you’ve been warned. He was arrested hours later and charged with aggravated harassment in the first degree, harassment in the second degree and stalking in the fourth degree.
Hoppy denies all charges and feels like Bethenny is over reacting apparently. Hoppy’s attorney Robert C. Gottlieb told Page Six, “There are no words to express how saddened Mr. Hoppy is over his ex-wife’s unjustified actions. His only concern is his daughter and intends to vigorously fight these false charges.”
As of this writing, Bethenny has not made a statement.
UPDATED: TMZ is reporting that Bethenny has a received 6 month restraining order against Jason. He is not allowed to have any communication other than custody exchanges with Bethenny nor come to her home, business, or apparently Bryn’s school. He is also forbidden from contact with Dennis.
