“It brings me great sadness to say that Jason and I are separating. This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family,” Bethenny said in a statement on Dec. 23, according to PEOPLE.
“We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority,” the statement continues. “This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.”
This breaking news comes after months of speculation that Bethenny and Jason’s relationship was in turmoil. Earlier this summer, Bethenny admitted that she was fighting for her marriage.
Bethenny and Jason married in March 2010 while Frankel was seven months pregnant. Their daughter, Brynn, is now 2-years-old.
On Dec. 23, Bethenny tweeted, “I am heartbroken. I am sad. We will work through this as a family.”
In addition to her Housewives fame, Bethenny is the creator of the Skinnygirl line of cocktail, food and nutrition products.
