Bethenny Frankel's on-off boyfriend Dennis Shields found dead in Trump Tower

Bethenny Frankel's on-off boyfriend Dennis Shields found dead in Trump Tower

He then began an on-and-off relationship with "Real Housewives of New York" star Bethenny Frankel.

The New York City medical examiner's office is still investigating, but confirmed a man was found dead at Trump Tower.

First responders arrived shortly, and EMS pronounced him dead on the scene. The cause of his death remains under investigation. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Dennis took an unknown quantity of oxycodone Rx pills Thursday night.

Dennis Shields, 51, was once linked to Frankel.

"This is really bad".

"I didn't say it to Dennis, but in my own mind, I said, '90 days".

Shields had recently spoken to tv host Steve Harvey to say that his relationship with Frankel was sometimes hard. "Dennis was, and will always be, the love of my life", Shields' ex-wife Jill said in a statement.

We're told the NY medical examiner's office will determine the cause of death, although it is believed drugs were involved. "His spirit lives on in our children".

Frankel and Shields met some 28 years ago, when he started dating Jill, a high school mate of Frankel's.

"[Police] learned his assistant had administered Narcan but was unsuccessful in reviving him", TMZ reported. "We ask that the media respect our privacy during this time of loss".

TooFab reached out to Bethenny for comment and will update this post if she responds.

Shields most recently appeared on the current season of "RHONY" as Frankel's guest for a dinner party where de Lesseps questioned Shields on his relationship with Frankel seemingly forgetting her 2016 accusations.

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