Some marriages last a lifetime, some last a couple of years, while some end withing months. Well, in Maureen E. McPhilmy case it was the second scenario, as after being married for so many years, the couple finally parted their ways in 2011.
O’Reilly first met Maureen E. McPhilmy, a public relations executive, in 1992. Then after dating each other for a couple the years, they got married on November 2, 1996, in St. Brigid Parish of Westbury. Together the couple has two children. As their daughter, Madeline was born in 1998 while their son, Spencer was born in 2003. It looked all like a perfect family, however, events took an ugly turn.
Maureen E. McPhilmy – What really went wrong?
Thier are two different aspects to this. As if we go as per Maureen, then it was her husband’s abusive behavior that ended their so long relationship. She even accused Bill of dragging her down a staircase by the neck, which somewhat depicted the intensity of their quarrel. To support her claims of physical abuse, her daughter, Madeline became the witness.
However, there is completely a different claim by O’Reilly, who goes on to say that it’s “100 percent false”. In one such statement, the American television host said
“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.”
So, there was surely no conclusion as what was the exact cause behind all this mess. However, the court finally ended the dispute by granting Maureen, the custody of their children. It was also reported that during the legal battle, which lasted for 3 years, Bill tried to convince his daughter that her mother could possibly ruin her life with her new father. He even planned to sue his ex-wife for $ 10 million. As he alleged that she had cheated on him while they were still married.
