Now Bill O’Reilly has something else to whine about.
The Fox News host has been battling his ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy for over a year to gain full custody of their two teen children.
Last May, it was revealed that O’Reilly allegedly physically assaulted McPhilmy in their home as their daughter watched. The girl told a psychologist that O’Reilly choked her mom and dragged her down the stairs. She also said that O’Reilly often verbally trashed McPhilmy in an effort to portray her as a bad parent and an adulterer who would ruin her life if she stayed with her.
Considering how shitty of a person O’Reilly is on the Fox News set, it’s not hard to believe he could be more of an asshole in his personal life. After all, we’re talking about a man who settled a sexual harassment lawsuit and who once claimed scantily clad women were asking to be raped.
And so, when it came right down to it, the Appellate Division Second Judicial Department court chose to uphold the decision of the Nassau County Supreme Court to grant McPhilmy full custody of the kids.
In fact, the kids were a main factor in the court ruling. As it turns out, they don’t want to live with a wife-beating asshole either.
“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,” the court said. “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.”
In other words, Bill O’Reilly was fighting his ex-wife AND his kids to force them to live under his roof by his rules.
And he got totally humiliated by the court with a ruling that says the equivalent of “Go f*ck yourself, Bill O’Reilly.”
Now he and Bristol Palin can start a support group together of bad conservative “family values” parents who lost custody of their kids.
