Bill O’Reilly On Explosive Gawker Report: ‘All Allegations… Are 100% False’

May 19, 2015 9:22 am

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly denied an explosive report by Gawker on Monday that alleged he had been accused of assault against his ex-wife before they were separated.

“All allegations against me in these circumstances are 100% false,” O’Reilly told Politico later that day in a statement through his personal attorney.

“I am going to respect the court-mandated confidentiality put in place to protect my children and will not comment any further,” he said.

Gawker’s J.K. Trotter published a report, citing an anonymous source “familiar with the facts of the case,” that alleged O’Reilly’s daughter accused him of assaulting his ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy before they separated.

Their 2011 divorce, leading to a custody dispute that wrapped up three weeks ago, resulted in McPhilmy winning custody of their two minor children, Gawker reported.
