Jason Hoppy is finally taking the stand in his ongoing custody battle with ex-wife Bethenny Frankel. The Real Housewives of New York star is attempting to gain full custody of their 9-year-old daughter Bryn Hoppy.
As he was being questioned by his lawyer, Robert Wallack, Jason gushed about his “confident” and “very happy” daughter. Hoppy adds that he and Bryn share a very close relationship.
Hoppy went on to say that his 9-year-old daughter loves eating Oreo cookies, making science projects, reading books, and going on bike rides.
“She’s just amazing,” he gushed.
However, Jason’s demeanor changed when his lawyer asked him how he would feel if his ex-wife received full-custody of Bryn.
“I’d be heartbroken,” Jason revealed while sobbing uncontrollably.
Hoppy says his daughter’s whole world would “complete change” if Bethenny got full custody of her.
“What does Bryn mean to you?” his lawyer asked.
“Everything. Everything. I can’t believe that we are here,” Hoppy said before crying again.
Bethenny is fighting for full custody of her daughter in an effort to “protect” her daughter from Hoppy.
The Real Housewives of New York star has accused her ex-husband multiple times of emotional “abuse” and “torture” since their 2012 split. Hoppy was arrested for stalking and harassment in 2017 but the charges were later dropped.
The Real Housewives of New York airs on Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
