The man Bethenny Frankel has been dating on and off for years has been found dead in his Trump Tower apartment, the New York Post reports. The entrepreneur's assistant reportedly administered Narcan, an emergency treatment for narcotic overdoses, law enforcement sources told TMZ.
The 47-year-old SkinnyGirl mogul has largely kept her relationship with Shields private, but back in December 2016, the duo stepped out together for an event, in which Frankel told People magazine: "I love him, I care about him and he's unbelievable". The two dated on and off ever since.
Bethenny Frankel has not made a public statement regarding Dennis Shields.
Before entering into a relationship following Frankel's contentious divorce from ex-husband Jason Hoppy, the two knew each other for almost 30 years.
Bethenny has yet to comment on Dennis' passing.

Shields also praised Frankel for raising more than $60 million to help Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria and continuing to help relief efforts there.
In May, the reality TV star told Steve Harvey that their relationship was complicated, according to People. She has a daughter with Hoppy.
"He said, 'You better get out ASAP.' That's how I knew to get out, otherwise I'd still be in there", Shield recalled. She explained that if they weren't "being teammates and it's not working, and one man is down, then the other man is down".
OMG, I'm shocked by this news.
She added that they were trying to be good teammates and partners, and she thinks that relationships are "a little bit like a business". "So both partners have to say, 'All right, I'm in it for this'".
