During Bill O’Reilly’s Divorce in 2011, his soon to be ex-wife, Maureen McPhilmy ,accused him of beating her and throwing her down the stairs. He was allegedly seen by the security man who was inside the home to protect the couple. The reason he beat her is the real story. She claimed she walked into the bedroom and O’Reilly was naked from the waist down and was in the middle of phone sex.
Maureen McPhilmy filed a notarized account of the incident in which she alleged that O’Reilly ‘flew into a fit of rage’ back in December 2009 when she found him in the middle of an intimate conversation with another person while in a partial state of undress in their bedroom.
She claimed in the court filing that soon after she walked in on O’Reilly, 67, he slammed her against a wall in their bedroom before wrapping his arms around her body and dragging her around their $2.2million Long Island mansion in Manhasset.
The October 11, 2011 affidavit was submitted as an exhibit in O’Reilly’s recent fraud lawsuit against McPhilmy’s divorce attorney Michael Klar and obtained by Jezebel just one week after a judge ordered that the document be sealed.
McPhilmy claimed in the affidavit that a one-foot hole was left in the bedroom wall as a result of O’Reilly throwing her across the room at the start of the alleged altercation.
She was then grabbed by O’Reilly, who wrapped his arms around her so she was unable to move and dragged her down the hallway of their home according to the affidavit.
Then, when they reached the staircase, McPhilmy claimed that O’Reilly began dragging her by the neck and he walked downstairs and through the kitchen, where he eventually let go when they ran into one of their security guards.
