In a podcast published just days before his alleged death, Dennis Shields talked about his on-again, off-again relationship withReal Housewives of NY star Bethenny Frankel. I'm so sad for her.

The duo started dating in 2016, three years after Bethenny filed for divorce from ex-husband Jason Hoppy.

Sources reported to the The New York Post that Dennis "had asked his assistant to administer Narcan around 9 a.m., believing he was overdosing on prescription pills".

Bethenny Frankel is mourning the loss of her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Dennis Shields. 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 little bit like business. However, during the crew's Season 10 trip to Cartagena, Colombia, Frankel called him in a panic because she wanted to go home.

Shields had a master's degree in public relations, but as the CEO of LawCash, he became a prominent figure in the banking world. He also co-founded the crowdfunding company YieldStreet, as well as Esquire Bank.

Dennis' net worth is estimated to be over $11 million, according to The Net Worth.

"We are all heartbroken".

In February, a source told PEOPLE the pair weren't together, but said Dennis was an important part of the RHONY star's life. "His spirit lives on in our children".

Authorities are investigating the suspected overdose death at Trump Tower of a man romantically linked to reality TV personality Bethenny Frankel. "Please respect our family's privacy at this time".
