Bill O’Reilly might regret suing his ex-wife’s lawyer for fraud.
That’s because an October 11, 2011 affidavit that had been submitted as an exhibit in the lawsuit against divorce attorney Michael Klar has been uncovered and made public by Jezebel, and the explosive allegations inside do not bode well for the former Fox News host.
This got buried y'day but is imp: Bill O’Reilly’s wife said he attacked her after she caught him having phone sex https://t.co/PGYNlnwsjM

The affidavit contains a notarized account from O’Reilly ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy alleging that, back in December 2009, O’Reilly “flew into a fit of rage” after she found him in their bedroom, undressed from the waist down and having an intimate conversation with another woman.
McPhilmy claimed that her then-husband slammed her against a bedroom wall hard enough to cause a one-foot hole, wrapped his arms around her body, and dragged her around their Long Island mansion.
O’Reilly allegedly dragged her down the hall by the waist, then by the neck down the stairs and through the kitchen before letting her go when they saw one of their security guards. According to the affidavit, although McPhilmy was screaming in pain and telling her ex-husband he was hurting her, she refused to speak to authorities or file a report even when asked by their security guard.
The allegations seem to match the statements of two women who have since received settlements from the former Fox News host, Juliet Ruddy and Andrea Mackris, who both believed O’Reilly was masturbating while attempting to call them for unwelcome phone sex.
They also add backdrop to a 2015 Gawker report on court transcripts that revealed that, during the divorce proceedings, O’Reilly was witnessed by their daughter choking her mother at one point, although it may or may not have been the same incident.
O’Reilly completely denies those allegations as “100 per cent false,” according to Daily Mail, adding in a statement: “All allegations against me in these circumstances are 100 percent false. I am going to respect the court-mandated confidentiality put in place to protect my children and will not comment any further.” The couple had been married for 14 years before separating in 2010 and divorcing a year later.
The former Fox News host also has denied the claims made by his ex-wife as well as the “phone sex” claims of his accusers.
