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.
