We hate that we even have to post something this awful and horrific, but we hate even more that crimes like this go unnoticed and ignored every day in this country.
Earlier in the month, we reported that Smash Mouth's bassist Paul DeLisle and his wife Mary, were in the middle of a nasty legal dispute over allegations that they were physically abusive to each other, and both had restraining orders put into place!
Well, PerezHilton.com has EXCLUSIVELY obtained video footage from one instance of this man's disgusting brutality against his wife, and believe us when we say there is absolutely no reason why he shouldn't have been put away for quite some time over this.
WARNING: THIS IS NOT ONLY INCREDIBLY VIOLENT, BUT EXTREMELY DISTURBING AND DIFFICULT TO WATCH (above).
According to sources, Paul's temporary restraining order against his wife has been dropped due to insufficient evidence in his initial claims. Meanwhile, Mary has filed charges against him for domestic violence/assault and violating his restraining order, on top of his two prior arrests in the last 10 months for felony domestic violence twice, felony child endangerment, and misdemeanor for dissuading a victim from calling 911.
Furthermore, while her restraining order against him has been dropped in lieu of a civil agreement, Mary has been given full legal and physical custody of their child, while her husband has not seen nor spoken to her in six weeks.
So shocking and so difficult to see this kind of raw, real-life violence…and to think that their daughter was exposed to this at such a young age!
Again, we sincerely hope that Mary, and women like her all over the country, realize that there is a way out of this, and can find the strength to take the power back from their abusers and expose them for the disgusting, sorry excuses for human beings that they are in reality.
This kind of violence NEEDS to stop.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE CLICK HERE if you or someone you know is currently being victimized by someone who is supposed to be a loved one.
The only way we can fight back is by SPEAKING OUT!
