“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,” the 42-year-old reality television personality said in a statement.
“We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter [Bryn] who is and will always remain our first priority,” Bethenny continued. “This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.”
“I am heartbroken. I am sad. We will work through this as a family.” she tweeted earlier in the day.
Bethenny and Jason were together for two years.
