Dennis, 51 - who has dated the Real Housewives Of New York City star on and off for the last two years - reportedly asked his assistant to give him Narcan around 9am on Friday morning, believing he was overdosing on prescription pills, NY post reports.

But he lost consciousness before the antidote could kick in and was pronounced dead a short while later inside his Trump Tower apartment.

TMZ reports that emergency services received a call shortly after 9am about an unresponsive male.

Bethenny and Dennis have been dating since 2016, but had a rocky relationship.

In May this year she described it as "being like business" as she shed light on their complex bond.

"I've been with someone on and off for years,” she told People magazine.

"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 little bit like business."
