Bill O’Reilly Accused of Domestic Violence in Custody Battle [Video]


Bill O’Reilly says the allegation that he physically assaulted his ex-wife is ‘100% false.’

O’Reilly is currently fighting an ugly custody battle with his ex-wife, Maureen McPhilmy, over the two children they have together. Most of the documents are officially sealed, sources reportedly told media site Gawker some of the sordid details that have come out.


According to Gawker:

Three weeks ago, a Nassau County Supreme Court justice ended a bitter three-year custody dispute between Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly and his ex-wife, Maureen McPhilmy, by granting custody of the couple’s two minor children to McPhilmy. Though nearly all documents pertaining to New York family court cases are sealed, Gawker has learned that the justice in the case heard testimony accusing O’Reilly of physically assaulting his wife in the couple’s Manhasset home.

 According to a source familiar with the facts of the case, a court-appointed forensic examiner testified at a closed hearing that O’Reilly’s daughter claimed to have witnessed her father dragging McPhilmy down a staircase by her neck, apparently unaware that the daughter was watching. The precise date of the alleged incident is unclear, but appears to have occurred before the couple separated in 2010. The same source indicated that the daughter, who is 16 years old, told the forensic examiner about the incident within the past year.

The apparent domestic violence assault would be the latest in a series of revelations about O’Reilly’s disturbing treatment of his family members, and his ex-wife in particular. It’s no secret that O’Reilly has struggled his entire career with unchecked anger issues.

O’Reilly has denied that he abused his wife, telling Politico’s Dylan Byers late Thursday: “All allegations against me in these circumstances are 100% false. I am going to respect the court-mandated confidentiality put in place to protect my children and will not comment any further.”
