The ex-boyfriend of reality TV star Bethenny Frankel was found dead in Trump Tower in New York City Friday, TMZ reported.

"We are all heartbroken", Shields' estranged wife, Jill Shields, said in a statement.

Bethenny Frankel is mourning the loss of her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Dennis Shields.

When she first introduced him on the show she said the pair had known each other for 30 years and he contacted her after a divorce.

Before he passed away, sources tell the outlet that Dennis asked his assistant to administer Narcan (a medication that reverses opioid drug overdoses) around 9 am, as he believed he was overdosing on prescription pills.

Shields has had a romance with Frankel since 2016. "Please respect our family's privacy at this time".

Bethenny Frankel, 47, needs her friends (and frenemies) now more than ever.

Speaking about her massive new townhouse, Bethheny said, "I may live here forever alone, and I'm okay with that". "It's terrible. She's known him for over 20 years", the insider says. Sonja remarked she wouldn't be able to attend Dennis's services because she's on vacation at The Retreat in Costa Rica. "Dennis was important to her, and her daughter".

The Medical Examiner's office is now investigating Shields' cause of death.

Meanwhile, Housewife Carole Radziwill tweeted: "I just heard the sad news about Dennis. It's like a partnership where if we're not being teammates and it's not working and one man is down, then the other man is down", Bethenny shared, keeping Dennis anonymous.

She added that they were trying to be good teammates and partners, and she thinks that relationships are "a little bit like a business".

She continued, "I have worked with incredible producers, made great friends, and I'm thrilled to leave frenemies behind".
