Bethenny Frankel has been ordered to pay $100,000 to her ex-husband Jason Hoppy's attorney.
The TV personality has been forced to cover her former lover's legal fees as their divorce enters its 16th month, but it is believe she will be reimbursed once they have reached a settlement, according to TMZ.com.
According to court documents obtained by the site, the brunette beauty "has to immediately hand over what amounts to an advance payment to Jason's attorney."
Since filing for divorce in December 2012, the former couple have been locked in a bitter legal battle over the custody of their three-year-old daughter Bryn and the money that was made during their two-year marriage.
However, a source told RadarOnline.com: "Jason would like to get the divorce and custody settled, once and for all but Bethenny is making it impossible."
Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Bryn has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation as part of the proceedings and the ex-lovers must hand over all past mental and health records for their daughter.
Bethenny and Jason initially filed for joint custody, but as time went on and tensions grew, the former 'Real Housewife of New York' star changed her mind and is now going for full custody with Jason being allowed visitation.
