The divorce proceedings between Bethenny Frankel are about to take a turn for the worst. The estranged is about to take the fight into the courtroom to battle over custody of their daughter, ownership of their Manhattan apartment and Bethenny’s money.
A source stated that, “Jason will absolutely not allow Bethenny to make him a part time dad on her terms. Jason will fight tooth and nail to have an active and meaningful presence in Bryn’s life.”
The source also said that inspire of signing an ironclad prenup, Jason is going to fight for a big portion of Bethenny’s millions. “Jason is absolutely going to fight against the prenup terms because he has nothing to lose at this point.”
“He feels that when he met Bethenny she was just in the beginning stages of launching her SkinnyGirl cocktail line, and he gave her a lot of free marketing advice and help. She relied on him a lot during that time and he believes that’s what helped her build a brand that was ultimately sold for $100 million.”
“Any money made by Bethenny and Jason during the marriage is going to be a huge fighting issue. Bethenny sold SkinnyGirl after they married and Jason contends he was a large part of her success, and maintains that he worked for her as an unpaid employee for many, many years.”
The source explained why Jason wants the apartment. “Jason dealt with all of the contractors and was responsible for the extensive renovations that were done before they finally moved in last year.”
“He isn’t going to walk away from that apartment.” The source went on to say that Jason will fight any attempt by Bethenny to move with Bryn to Los Angeles.
“Bethenny is expected to launch her talk show this fall and has said she plans on moving filming to New York City, but Jason doesn’t believe that she means that. Bethenny loves Los Angeles and he believes she would move out there in a second if he wasn’t standing in the way.”
“Jason will fight any proposed move to Los Angeles though that would remove Bryn from New York, where he lives.”
With all the tension and nastiness surrounding her impending divorce, Bethenny Frankel is deeply concerned with her public image the source said.
“Bethenny is extremely worried about her public image right now. She went ballistic when it was made public that she has been spending time with Warren Lichtenstein.”
“Bethenny has worked very hard to cultivate a likeable, girls girl persona, but her recent actions are quickly unraveling that perception of her. She is extremely fearful that her bottom line is going to be severely impacted by the divorce.”
“Bethenny is very, very money minded and is a total control freak when it comes to her finances and income stream. She’s worried that the divorce could place future endorsement deals in jeopardy and cost her big time.”
