Bethenny Frankel will no longer have to pay spousal support, rule judges

Bethenny Frankel will no longer have to pay spousal support after a ruling in her favor in an appellate court, says InTouch Weekly. Frankel has allegedly been paying ex-husband Jason Hoppy $26,000 monthly in temporary alimony and child support since the couple split in 2012. "After acknowledging and representing that they are 'fully capable of being self-supporting,' the parties agreed to 'waive any and all claims for spousal support and/or maintenance both now and in the future,'" read court documents.

Frankel's payday was tempered by some bad news: despite the fact that she bought the couple's shared apartment, she won't be considered its sole owner.

“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,” Hoppy's lawyer Bernard Clair tells InTouch. The apartment was in fact owned by a trust, which has since been invalidated.

“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,” said Clair. The case will move forward to a civil court.

Frankel will return to star on the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New York, where her plotlines this season include a struggle with cystic fibrosis.
