Frankel in the midst of awkward, bitter divorce

Bethenny Frankel's fairytale romance to Jason Hoppy continues to burst into flames: Now Jason is demanding primary custody of their daughter with child support.

Frankel in the midst of awkward, bitter divorce

Bethenny Frankel and her estranged husband, Jason Hoppy, are reportedly in the middle of one the most awkward and bitter divorce battles in recent celebrity history.

Frankel and Hoppy are rumored to be arguing about custody of their 2-year-daughter, Bryn, with both parents seeking the primary caregiver role. Oh — and now Hoppy allegedly wants money.

To complicate matters, Hoppy also refuses to back down from his requests for child support — despite a solid pre-nup that secures Frankel's estimated $25 million net worth. While it's unclear why exactly Hoppy wants child support, there's one decision that's got us totally shaking our head: Jason and Bethenny still love together!

Yep, even though the pair split in December 2012 and Frankel filed for divorce in January 2013, the reality television couple still share their multi-million dollar Tribeca loft. Us Weekly says Hoppy constantly creates unnecessary conflict and tension as some sort of revenge for the divorce. Says a source for the magazine, "He wants to make her pay."

Us Weekly reports the most recent flare-up between the bickering duo was about a month ago when Bethenny filmed a segment for her talk show, Bethenny.

"There were about 20 people over at the house. Jason freaked out and started snapping at everybody. He tried to stop the entire filming. Bethenny had to move the shoot into her bedroom." The source continued, "Jason has been making the living arrangements really uncomfortable and not a healthy living space for Bryn. Bethenny has had to leave, so she takes Bryn to hotels so they can have alone quality time together where it's not uncomfortable in the apartment."

Living with your ex-spouse, especially during a tough divorce, would be awful for any couple. We wonder why Bethenny and Jason remain under one roof. Maybe it has something to do with money? Bethenny recently told People magazine that living with Jason "is very, very, stressful" but did not elaborate on the details.

Frankel, 42, filed for divorce from Hoppy just two years after the couple wed in a lavish filmed-for-Bravo ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York City. She's been spotted staying at the Trump SoHo and Mandarin Oriental hotels in Manhattan with Bryn on numerous occasions.

Meanwhile, Jason Hoppy continues to be photographed in New York City with his wedding band on.
