Bethenny Frankel’s Boyfriend Found Dead in His Trump Tower Apartment

Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel's on-off boyfriend has been found dead.

"He was a loving father and friend". The SkinnyGirl mogul said in May that she and Shields had been on and off for years, and they were like a partnership. "Please respect our family's privacy at this time".

Dennis Shields had asked his assistant to administer Narcan around 9 a.m., believing he was overdosing on prescription pills, sources said.

Dennis' net worth is estimated to be over $11 million, according to The Net Worth.

He graduated from New York University with a Master's degree in public relations and went on to make his living as a banker in New York City.

It's unclear whether he and Frankel were now romantically involved, but Shields did appear on an April episode of the long-running reality TV show, which she tweeted about, while the two apparently dined together.

He was also the CEO of LawCash, a pre-settlement funding company.

Authorities are investigating the suspected overdose death at Trump Tower of a man romantically linked to reality TV personality Bethenny Frankel. It was Frankel's first relationship shown on the series after her divorce from Jason Hoppy.

"About four weeks ago, we were still together", Shields said.

The Skinny Girl founder seemingly opened up about their romance, which began in 2016, back in May on "The Steve Harvey Show", describing their relationship as "a little bit like business" without mentioning him by name. She explained that if they weren't "being teammates and it's not working, and one man is down, then the other man is down".

Bethenny has not yet publicly commented.
