The New York Post said sources had told them that Dennie Shields was found dead at his apartment in the city’s Trump Tower earlier today age 51.

The publication’s insider also told them the CEO, who previously dated Real Housewives’ Bethenny Frankel - had died of a suspected overdose.

They went on to say he asked this assistant to “administer Narcan around 9am”, reportedly believing he was overdosing on prescription pills.

Dennis is said to have lost consciousness before the medication, and was pronounced dead a “short time later”.

A spokesperson for the New York Police Department told PEOPLE that a 51-year-old man was pronounced dead on the scene at Dennis’ Trump Tower address.

The force could not share the individual’s name yet.

“Preliminarily, we are investigating it as a possible overdose,” the spokesperson told the publication.

In May, Bethenny, 47, told Steve Harvey her relationship with Dennis was complicated.

“I’ve been with someone on and off for years,” she explained. “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 good teammates and I think relationships oddly are — and this sounds cold — but a bit like business,” she added.

Dennis and Bethenny’s relationship was well documented on The Real Housewives of New York and had remained close despite multiple break-ups over the years.

In February, a source told PEOPLE the pair weren’t together, but said Dennis was an important part of the reality star’s life.

Speaking to host Steve just months later, Bethenny said she thought they were both “at that point” where “both partners have to say, ‘All right, I’m in it for this.’”

Bethenny and Dennis met nearly 30 years ago but didn’t start dating until 2016.

The TV personality first starred in RHONY from 2008 until 2010.

Her time on the show documented her engagement and marriage to Jason Hoppy and the birth of their daughter.

The couple split in 2012 and were divorced in 2014.

In 2014, she returned to RHONY as the main housewife after three seasons away from the show.

Bethenny is also the founder of drinks company Skinnygirl Cocktails and has released two diet books and an exercise DVD, Body by Bethenny.

Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Bethenny Frankel asking for comment.
