Danielle Staub: I was Severely Abused by Kevin Maher

by at . Comments

Danielle Staub is done with sex.

But the Real Housewife of New Jersey isn't done bashing her ex-husband. In a new interview with Us Weekly, Staub makes serious allegations against Kevin Maher.

"I was severely abused," she says. "I was in fear for my life. I was visibly bruised, injured, scared and victimized."

Staub and Maher were married in 1988, and the former goes into detail about their past in her new biography The Naked Truth. The book is largely a response to Maher's memoir, Cop Without a Badge, which accuses Danielle of kidnapping, extortion and drug use.

These two make it seem like Lindsay Lohan and her father have a stable relationship.

Staub tells the magazine that Maher is "obsessed" with her and adds there was...

"A lot of physical abuse, and then the emotional abuse that follows... We are talking days and days in a row before he was exhausted, or ran out of drugs, whatever it was that he was on."

Maher admits he hit Danielle, but only in "self-defense." He denies all accusations of long-term, unprovoked abuse. (He also says he never killed her dog. Consider that noted.)

"Some of the things she has written... are just complete lies," Maher says.  "This woman was never hospitalized by me."

Why did the volcanic couple stay together? He explains: "I was never in love with her, I was in lust with her. Our whole relationship was about sex. We had sex from the time we woke up in the morning to when we went to sleep, and even during sleeping. It was all about sex and cocaine."

That's what he should have named his book.
