http://www.nydailynews.com/entertai...ted-wife-front-child-report-article-1.2226846 Fox News flamethrower Bill O'Reilly allegedly beat up his now ex-wife and dragged her by neck down a staircase — in front of their daughter, according to a shocking new report Monday. The alleged assault happened before O'Reilly and Maureen McPhilmy separated in 2010, Gawker.com reported. The couple's daughter, who is now 16, just recently told a forensic examiner about vicious fight in the couples' former Manhasset, L.I., mansion, the website reported. The O'Reillys divorced in September 2011 and now share custody of their daughter and 11-year-old son, court records show. But as part of their agreement, the couple agreed to a child therapist who would arbitrate any potential custodial disputes. McPhilmy charged in court papers that O'Reilly "hired the children's therapist as a full-time employee to perform virtually all of his parental duties." Two years ago, a New York appeals court ruled that O'Reilly's behavior "could undermine the integrity" of their joint-custody agreement and ordered a trial court to consider McPhilmy's petition for sole custody. Bruce Glikas/FilmMagic O'Reilly (l.) shares custody of his kids, including son Spencer (l.), with ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy. O'Reilly is famous for his short fuse and has a history of flipping out both on and off the set. He has also been accused of pulling a Brian Williams and exaggerating the danger he faced while covering the Falklands War in 1982. O'Reilly insisted he was no liar. Fox News declined to comment on the report.
