In the midst of a bitter custody battle with ex Jason Hoppy, Bethenny Frankel’s main concern should be her 4-year-old daughter, Bryn. Instead, her life — and wallet — seem to revolve around bad-news boyfriend Michael Cerussi.
“She’s completely under his thumb,” a source close to Michael tells Star. “He demands first-class flights, hotels, meals — all on her dime. He told us, ‘She’ll do whatever I want.'”
And his demeaning requests have made their way into the bedroom. “He likes to photograph her while they’re having sex,” says the source. “He has her dress up and role play.” In fact, this twisted fetish is what led to Bethenny’s controversial Instagram photo in her daughter’s nightgown and shorts.
“She needs to make sure to take care of herself and Bryn,” huffs the insider,”not spend time with a man who doesn’t have her best interests at heart.”
