Jason Hoppy is upset over Bethenny Frankel’s latest vacation.
Days ago, as the Inquisitr reported, the Real Housewives of New York City star arrived in Miami for a getaway with boyfriend Michael “Mac” Cerussi. While that likely wouldn’t have been a problem for Hoppy, news of his daughter being included in the trip has reportedly sent him over the edge.
“[Jason Hoppy] fought very hard in court to prevent Michael from spending any time with Bryn,” an insider told Radar Online on December 31. “He has nothing against Michael personally, but Jason doesn’t think it’s appropriate for Bethenny’s boyfriend to be around Bryn, as the divorce still isn’t final. It’s very confusing for a four-year-old to see a parent with someone else.”
In photos of Frankel and Cerussi’s trip, obtained by the U.K.’s Daily Mail, Frankel and Cerussi were seen on the beach with Bryn.
“There have been very contentious custody proceedings regarding the matter,” the insider continued. “Bethenny had to agree that Jason’s name wouldn’t be mentioned in any negative context in front of Bryn, and that includes anyone she is with.”
While Jason Hoppy can’t say Bryn can’t be around Cerussi, he did successfully prohibit her from appearing on the upcoming seventh season of The Real Housewives of New York City.
“It’s revolting to Jason that Bethenny would even entertain the idea of filming with Bryn,” an insider previously told the site. “Even though Bryn filmed with the couple on Bethenny’s Bravo spin-off show, Bethenny Ever After, Jason was usually there. It was a controlled environment. RHONY usually turns into a drunken screaming fest, and Jason doesn’t want his daughter in that environment.”
Co-parenting Bryn civilly would certainly be ideal, but unfortunately, Frankel and Hoppy can’t seem to get along.
“It just isn’t happening,” the insider claimed. “They hardly ever talk in person, and most of the communication about Bryn is done by text message or e-mail. Very sad situation for Bryn.”
Frankel and Hoppy got married in 2010 and welcomed Bryn that same year. Throughout the beginning of their relationship, the couple filmed scenes for The Real Housewives of New York City, Bethenny Getting Married and Bethenny Ever After.
In December 2012, Frankel and Hoppy separated and, one month later, Frankel filed for divorce. In the years since her filing, the couple have remained at odds over her Skinnygirl fortune, which he claims to have contributed to.
Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy agreed on terms of custody earlier this year.
