Fox New anchor Bill O’Reilly is being accused of domestic violence against his former wife Maureen McPhilmy. The couple’s divorce trial finally ended after three years and McPhilmy was granted full custody of the couple’s two children.
Gawker recently published information about the trial, alleging that though documents for the case are sealed, the site was able to learn about a testimony which accused O’Reilly of physically harming his wife and assaulting her in their home. The allegations state that the couple’s daughter witnessed O’Reilly drag her mother down their staircase by her neck.
O’Reilly recently released a statement about the information saying “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.” On the most reason episode of his own show, the host chose not to address the allegations.
