TMZ confirmed the report with law enforcement sources, who say they received a call about an "unresponsive male," who they believe overdosed on oxycodone.

Frankel told People back in May that they were trying to be "good partners" to one another.

"I've been with someone on and off for years," Frankel said. "It's like a partnership where if we're not being teammates and it's not working and one man is down, then the other man is down. We're trying to really kind of be good partners and be good teammates and I think relationships oddly are -- and this sounds cold -- but a bit like business."

Bethenny and Dennis first met nearly 30 years ago and started dating in 2016. She shares one daughter with her ex-husband, Jason Hoppy.
