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."

Her prenup most likely won't be enforced. There's a 7 day waiting period between the time the pre-nup is signed and getting married. There were several important cases about this and a big one was the Barry Bonds marriage that changed had a big impact on the pre-nup portion of law.

She got what she wanted. She wanted a baby. But now....she wants him to pay thru his nose. Future men who want to date this woman? Beware! You have been warned.

Bethenny, this make you look very very GREEDY. You do not need anything from Jason. End this now and stay on good terms with your ex and his family for the sake of your child. Do not put this child in the middle of this mess, she deserves the best.

Makes me sick....their baby is only 2 and they are ALREADY getting a divorce? She's an idiot. No one tries to work things out anymore....especially celebrities. Just move on to the next one, meanwhile the child suffers.

If she makes more money than him, wouldn't he get the child support? Look at Britney Spears and Kevin, she pay him child support. Bethenny, get off your high horse.

I hope she suffers from a horrible illness and her child see her slowly die and she sees how her ex then takes the kid. Seriously . She can ask him to take care of the son alright but she doesn't need to ask for more money and get into the fight because isn't it the case that the person who earns more has to pay for the spouse ??? We know Halle Barry has do pay and Britney has to pay her ex

whatever did he see in her? She loves to dwell on her relationship with her mother and takes out her bad ways on him. Glad that she is independent but good lord she is too much. Celebrate Jason

BB not bb    

Now she is being pathetic. She should just take the kid and leave. If she starts fighting dirty, he could try to take sole custody and make her life hell. She should take a cue from Katie Holmes and just get the kid and get out. She is a millionaire and he is a fireman. How is that going to work that he has to pay her?

I'm a female and I would normally side with the woman, but this is an obviously greedy-ass woman.
