Even Reilly's 16-year-old daughter testified that she had seen her father drag her mother by her neck down the staircase.

Bill, however, has denied all the allegations and instead has filed $10million infidelity lawsuit against his former wife, stating that she cheated on him while still married and made false representations in their divorce settlement.

The couple now shares their home with four children, Madeline, Spencer from Maureen and Bailey and Riley from Jeffrey and are living happily together.


Knowing that his ex-wife had tied knots with a new man, sources reported that Bill once went on a rampage to ruin the career of Jeffrey just out of anger.

Also, he even made an attempt to dismember Maureen out from the Catholic Church!!

Not only this, one of Maureen's friend also stated,

"Bill is still bitter. 'Bill has a lot of money. He also has a lot of power. He's determined to hurt them any way he can."

Well, as for now, Bill has not made any allegations against the couple and Maureen is living trouble free life with her new husband Jeffrey. We wish the couple lifetime of happiness and togetherness.
