Bill O’Reilly’s Ex-Wife Claims She Was Beaten After Catching Him Having Phone Sex
According to a new story in Jezebel, his ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy says the disgraced former Fox News anchor became violent with her in 2009.
Maureen swore in an affidavit that she caught O’Reilly butt-nekkid having phone sex with some unidentified woman.
According to McPhilmy’s account, she discovered O’Reilly engaging in phone sex in their bedroom at roughly 10:30 p.m. one evening. O’Reilly then “flew into a fit of rage” and slammed her into a nearby wall, leaving a hole one foot across. He then, the affidavit claims, wrapped his arms around her shoulders, neck, and hands to immobilize her, and violently dragged her out of the bedroom and down a hallway on the second floor of their 4,600-square-foot, $2.4 million home in Manhasset, New York.
O’Reilly went on, the affidavit claims, to drag McPhilmy by the neck down a flight of stairs and through the kitchen, as McPhilmy screamed that he was hurting her. In the kitchen, the affidavit claims, a security guard assigned to protect O’Reilly and his family saw what was going on, at which point O’Reilly stopped the attack. When the guard asked her if she wanted to report the incident to the police, she declined, McPhilmy added.
It is said that O’Reilly wasn’t wearing any pants or underwear while attacking his wife. No word on whether or not the bodyguard still has eyesight.
This all seems par for the course when it comes to O’Reilly and his scummy sexual harassment shenanigans.
