Bethenny Frankel

I Want Child Support ...

From My Ex!

1/7/2013 9:58 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bethenny Frankel
means business, even in divorce.  She wants Jason to pay child support and a lot more ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Bethenny filed for divorce last week against Jason Hoppy.  Now we've learned ... Bethenny -- who is reportedly worth between $25 million and $55 million -- has filed legal docs asking for the following from Jason:

--- Child support ... retroactive from the date she filed for divorce
--  Medical, dental, optical, therapeutic, and orthodontic expenses for HER and her child
--  Life insurance that makes both her and the kid beneficiaries

She also wants Jason -- who made lots of money in real estate --  out of their marital residence for good.  Bethenny is asking for exclusive occupancy.

And there's more ... Bethenny wants primary physical custody of 2-year-old Bryn.

Bethenny also wants the judge to enforce their prenup dated March 23, 2010 ... signed 5 days before they got hitched.

A source connected with Bethenny tells TMZ ... "This is a preliminary step to move the process forward.   She wants to work this out privately and amicably.  All Bethenny cares about is that it works out the best way possible for Bryn."

Why does someone worth that much money need child support? She's also asking for health insurance! Is she not able to afford that herself? Rich people are greedy.

Hoppy should tell the judge, "By the Power of Gray Skulll.....I have the power to not pay this."

Bethany.... I am one of your biggest fans. I thought you and Jason and Bryn were just the cutest things ever. Jason IS A SAINT to put up with you....You KNOW you were/are a MESS emotionally and extremely high maintenance. I witnessed Jason BRING YOU BACK TO CALMNESS, SUPPORT YOU 100%, HELP YOU REALIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF A BALANCED/LOVING FAMILY.....and now you divorce him?

You do realize that you're NEVER going to find a man as good as him, don't you? And, Jason, there's no question that YOU TRIED WITH ALL YOUR sorry it didn't work out for you.... YOU will have the woman of your choice dearie!!

If this report is true, she should be ashamed of herself. If it wasn't for Jason's work, her company would not have been successful. He took care of distribution and operations = expansion of brand, all she did was appear on a reality TV show, steal an idea from a local bar - because she was a lush, and "market" the product by driving that ugly Bug that had the brand all over it. I realize that she has a pre-nup, but Jason should fight it and receive a generous payout, In CA., since she makes more money that him and it is a 50/50, no fault state, he could actually ask for spousal support. She is a nasty, ugly, fake, desperate, POS, wannabe poseur who is so self absorbed it is really unbelievable. She is also annoying and blames everything on her past, that evidently wasn't even accurately portrayed. I hope that he is not required to pay a cent and gets some money in return for his efforts building and selling "her" company. Even the boardroom meeting that were filmed, she had no idea what was going on and has no business sense. He should definitely fight this BS!!
