The New York Post reports:
“Real Housewives of New York City” star Bethenny Frankel’s on-again, off-again boyfriend was found dead in his Trump Tower pad Friday of a suspected overdose, sources told The Post.
Dennis Shields had asked his assistant to administer Narcan around 9 a.m., believing he was overdosing on prescription pills, sources said. But the 51-year-old lost consciousness before the medication, used to reverse opioid overdoses, kicked in. He was pronounced dead a short time later. Sources said he overdosed on the powerful painkiller OxyContin.
Shields was the CEO of LawCash, a Brooklyn-based firm that bankrolls questionable lawsuits against the city — and charges plaintiffs exorbitant interest fees for cash advances on their settlements.
