According to the complaint, Hoppy approached Frankel and her boyfriend Dennis Shields at the school on Jan. 27 and repeatedly stated, "Okay I see. This is how you want to do this. Okay. You can play your game. It doesn't matter. You can get 10 lawyers. There's nothing you can do to stop me. You'll be sorry. You've been warned. I can't help it. She's pure evil. You've been warned. Don't say I didn't warn you."

Hoppy's attorney Robert C. Gottlieb told Page Six, "There are no words to express how saddened Mr. Hoppy is over his ex-wife's unjustified actions. His only concern is his daughter and intends to vigorously fight these false charges."

Hoppy and Frankel have been in a bitter custody and divorce battle since they split in 2012.
