This is all alleged information gleaned from various news sources and as we say – strictly all alleged:
The hate for O’Reilly out there on the left is simply unhinged. It doesn’t help when they get fodder like this. A marriage scandal has engulfed Bill O’Reilly.
He separated from his wife in 2010. They divorced in 2011. They have two children, ages 12 and 17.
That’s Laura Ingraham – not his wife on the right, by the way.
There has been an ensuing custody battle. A court just ruled that the ex-wife will get custody of the children.
The children have stated they do not want to live with their father. There have been allegations of infidelity on both sides and it is also claimed that O’Reilly is an absentee father. O’Reilly has also been accused of domestic abuse, which he denies.
Supposedly one of his children stated that he “was choking her mom or had his hands around her neck and dragged her down some stairs.”
Notorious FOX pundit Bill O’Reilly has been denied custody of his children by a New York appeals court after they were convinced that he was unfit to care for them after a vicious domestic violence incident. His kids, a 12-year-old boy and 17-year-old girl, will stay with his ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy. The court ruling announced that:
“Viewing the totality of the circumstances, there is a sound and substantial basis for the Supreme Court’s determination that it is in the best interests of the children for the mother to be awarded primary residential custody. Particularly relevant in this case are the clearly stated preferences of the children, especially considering their age and maturity, and the quality of the home environment provided by the mother.”
The right-wing propagandist and shameless liar initially lost custody of his kids following O’Reilly’s horrific attack on his ex-wife; his daughter told a court psychologist that he “was choking her mom or had his hands around her neck and dragged her down some stairs.”
I have no idea whether the allegations are true or not, but things seem to be very one-sided here. The daughter says she finds her father’s temper ‘scary’.
What’s the next title of his new book, I wonder?
O’Reilly has also basically been accused of stalking… looking into the boyfriend of his ex-wife, etc. He has denied all these claims and I have seen no indication that they have been proven true.
I’ve never found O’Reilly to be a particularly smart person – he believes in Global Warming, etc. But this is bad stuff.
And REALLY stupid.
