Bethenny is accused of calling Jason "trash," in front of their 3- year- old daughter, Bryn, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
The epic argument occurred after a recent court date for the couple, which has been unable to reach a financial and custody agreement. Frankel was pushed to the brink and begged Jason to settle with her, a source tells Radar. When Jason refused, "Bethenny became enraged and called him trash in front of their daughter, Bryn," the source says.
"The argument took place in their swanky Tribeca apartment. She also said Jason was lazy, and stupid because Jason doesn't have a regular full-time job."
The argument caused Jason's lawyer to file documents in the ongoing custody dispute over Bryn.
Hoppy recently told Frankel, via their lawyers, that he didn't want Bryn to appear on her upcoming talk show.
“He doesn’t want Bethenny to have Bryn in the audience, or do pre-taped segments for the show. He just doesn’t feel that their daughter should be on display on Bethenny’s talk show,” a source told Radar.
And one insider says Hoppy is careful about what he says around their daughter. "Jason has always been very, very careful to never say anything negative about Bethenny in front of Bryn, the source said, adding that Jason believes Bethenny does not play by the same rules.
As Radar was first to report, Hoppy alleged that Bethenny wasn’t allowing him to see Bryn as much as he wanted because the talk show host was spending time at a friend’s apartment with the little girl.
Even though the couple is divorcing, they are living together in their New York City apartment.
The former Real Housewives of New York City star admitted in an interview that she was sorry she ever married Jason but was grateful for Bryn.
“In my marriage, I made a mistake. It is what it is,” she said. “I made the wrong choice. But I do have my daughter, who is so beautiful and amazing in every way.”
The comments Bethenny has been making in the press about the "divorce are really irking Jason. Not because of how he is being portrayed, but some day, their daughter will grow up, and read these things. Jason is looking out for Bryn," the insider said.
