According to the New York Post, Dennis died of a suspected overdose.

The victim was Dennis Shields, who has been known to date Bethenny Frankel of "The Real Housewives of NY", a police source said.

The publication reported he asked his assistant to administer Narcan, which is used to reverse opioid overdoses, around 9am, believing he was overdosing on prescription pills. An autopsy is now reportedly pending.

She spoke about her relationship with Shields, who she met 30 years ago, to People magazine in May.

His estranged wife Jill Schwartzberg Shields told Fox News: "Dennis' family is devastated by this bad news".

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 not yet publicly commented.

Frankel was joined by Shields on Bravo's Real Housewives and appeared in the most recent series. Dennis was important to her, and her daughter.

The Skinny Girl founder seemingly opened up about their romance, which began in 2016, back in May on "The Steve Harvey Show", describing their relationship as "a little bit like business" without mentioning him by name.

"I've been with someone on and off for years", Bethenny confessed. "So both partners have to say, 'All right, I'm in it for this'". 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".

Speaking about her massive new townhouse, Bethheny said, "I may live here forever alone, and I'm okay with that".
