Kevin has filed a lawsuit against Danielle on the basis of defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress. And yes, this is the same Kevin who wrote the tell all book, ‘Cop Without A Badge,’ revealing Danielle’s scandalous past as a drug user and escort.
The lawsuit is based on an interview Danielle gave PEOPLE magazine in June 2009, during which she called Kevin a rapist and a dog murderer.
Kevin– who was married to Danielle in the late 80s — told E! News, “I am filing a lawsuit against my ex-wife, Danielle Staub, stemming from her allegations that I raped her on a bed of broken glass, inserted my handgun inside her and played Russian Roulette, and last but not least, killing her dog by way of hanging it,” Maher states. “She also threatened me on the reunion show that Bravo aired.”
Kevin says he’s receieved “serious and outrageous threats” since the article was released.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Danielle Staub’slife has been filled with controversy following the show’s first season. On a much brighter note, her daughter Christine Staub recently signed a modeling contract with IMG Models – the same agency that represents super models including Gisele Bunchen, Heidi Klum, Kate Moss and Taylor Momsen.
Though the15-year-old high school sophomore is taking test photos, she is expected to hit the catwalk as early as September during the New York Fashion week, according to IMG.
“She came into our offices and we were blown away!” Ivan Bart, SVP and Managing Director of IMG Models Worldwide, tellsPEOPLE. “She has an amazing amount of potential as a model. If we had seen her on the street we would have signed her on the spot.”
“This is all very new to me,” Christine told The Daily . “I’ve never really done any modeling before, so I’m just learning while I have a chance and being guided by the best in the business. I’m also getting used to industry people looking at my face so closely!”
We certainly hope that her life is nothing like her mother’s past. From watching the show, she seems like a smart young lady.
