In the memoir titled “The Naked Truth,” Danielle, 47, makes abuse claims against her ex-husband Kevin Maher. “I was severely abused,” said Danielle to UsWeekly of Kevin, whom she married in 1988 and split up with a year and a half later. “He was very possessive…I was hospitalized several times.”
“The abuse started as soon as we were married,” continued Danielle. “He was very possessive…I was hospitalized several times. There is no way to describe how it feels to not have a safe place to go.”
And in case you’re wondering, Kevin is the same guy who wrote the Cop Without a Badge book, which detailed Danielle’s past involvement in kidnapping, drug use and prostitution. Kevin is now denying Danielle’s claims of abuse and even filed a $5 million defamation suit against her last October, with her deposition scheduled for July.
In his court filing, Kevin claims that Danielle has said “that I raped her on a bed of broken glass, inserted a handgun in her vagina and played Russian roulette….[that] I killed her dog…The list just goes on and on…The woman is insane.”
Kevin also claims he passed a lie-detector test on March 22 with “an accredited polygraph examiner” from the LAPD. And as for Danielle’s story about being hospitalized by him? Well Kevin states, “This woman was never hospitalized by me.” He adds, “if you were to seek treatment after being beaten, which is a felony, that hospital would have to call the local police. There are no hospital records of me putting her in a hospital like she claims.”
Kevin however admits to hitting Danielle once, but claims it was “in self defense, pulling her off me…I never beat her. I did hit her — it’s true. Not something I’m proud to admit.”
As for why Danielle would make false accusations about him, Kevin has his own theory. “She is without conscience,” says Kevin. “She’s calculating. I believe that Danielle Staub sold her soul to Satan for fame. Her children are suffering from it…her past is going to catch up to her very soon.”
Back to Danielle’s book. Below are some revelations she makes in the book –
1) Danielle reveals she found out she was adopted at age 5, and was abused as a kid by both a relative and a family friend.
2) She denies being a prostitute, but admits to being an escort/Miami call girl. She claims she only slept with two of her johns dates.
3) She also reveals in her book that she gave birth to a son named William in the late 80s, but he later died of SIDS at just 11 weeks.
4) Another interesting tidbit is that she met her ex-husband, Tom Staub, while working at a strip club.
