O’Reilly isn’t getting out of hot water anytime soon.
Freshly on the backside of scandal surrounding lies in his past reporting, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is now embroiled in a heated custody battle with his ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy.
Details coming forward during the trial of O’Reilly’s relationship with his wife have been deplorable.
[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.
It’s not the first time that the brutal side of O’Reilly has been seen. His anger and retaliation have emerged before.
In 2011, it came out that O’Reilly had tried to intrude into McPhilmy’s life by harassing the man she was seeing. He did this by trying to use his connections at the local police office the man she was seeing worked at, to have him fired.
Bill O’Reilly has issued a statement regarding the abuse issue and claims that it is “100% false.
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.
