According to new reports, Gary Oldman is being accused of domestic abuse by one of his former wives. The woman claims the actor abused her both physically and emotionally while they were married.
Oldman’s third wife, 50-year-old Donya Fiorentino decided to tell all about their rocky marriage.
The woman claims that before the highly acclaimed actor won the custody battle over their sons, 18-year-old Charlie and 20-year-old Gulliver, she went through years of abuse at the hands of Oldman.
It is the first time Donya publicly comes forward about the ‘nightmare’ four years long marriage.
She claims the actor once beat her up with a phone while she was holding one of their sons in her arms.
Their problematic marriage was followed by a nasty custody battle that the actor won.
‘He stole my children and stole my life. The truth needs to be told. I’d like Gary to stand up and take responsibility for his actions. Will he? Who knows? He’s always denied everything,’ the woman revealed.
It turns out that she never really intended to speak up about what she had to go through with her former husband but she was inspired by the recent #MeToo movement.
‘He’s a great actor. Was he a great husband? No. Our marriage was a giant car crash in which demented things happened. I lost my self-esteem, I was broken. I have been empowered after seeing other women speak up. When a woman gets her voice back, she gets her power back,’ she went on.
The accusations come just when Gary is nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Actor category for playing Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.
Oldman had not hesitated to slam the accusations, calling his ex, who he met at an AA meeting, a ‘fantasist.’
Her addiction to both alcohol and pills made her an unfit mother and was also what ultimately led to their marriage crumbling.
At the time, when Donya brought up the alleged domestic abuse in court, the judge ended up siding with Gary and gave him custody of their two sons.
It has to be noted that this is something that happens very rarely, and it’s usually because the court decides the mother really isn’t fit to parent the kids.
Now it looks like the woman is using the new sexual revolution to share her allegedly horrible experience being married to Gary with the world.
