It’s been several years since Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel divorced Jason Hoppy, but the tension between the former couple still seems to be running high.

During a custody battle for their 9-year-old daughter Bryn, Frankel reportedly got emotional over Hoppy’s testimony. According to Radar Online, Frankel lashed out through tears, telling the judge that her ex “tortured” her.

“You tortured me. You tortured me!” the site quoted her as saying, prompting the judge to step in and order a break.

“He tortured me and is lying,” she reportedly told her legal team.

It’s not the first time she’s used that language to criticize Hoppy. Back in March, she told a judge that living with him was like living in a “torture chamber.” Just two months later, she said she was unable to attend anything involving their daughter where he would be in the room.

“An appointment with Jason is abusing me, making fun of me,” Us Weekly quoted her as saying. “An appointment with Jason is a torture chamber. It is a vacuum of abuse. Going to an appointment with Jason is not a good idea, because he uses every way to abuse me when no one is looking.”

Hoppy was arrested in 2017 for allegedly stalking Frankel, although the charges were later dropped.

Frankel and Hoppy had previously reached a custody settlement back in 2014, but now the Real Housewives star is seeking full custody of their daughter.
