Bill O'Reilly (Fox News)

Bill O’Reilly’s ex-wife accused the Fox News anchor of physically assaulting her in front of their daughter.

A source said Maureen McPhilmy, who was recently awarded custody of the couple’s two children, testified during a New York family court hearing that O’Reilly attacked her at their Manhasset home, reported Gawker.

The source said a forensic examiner testified that O’Reilly’s 16-year-old daughter claimed she saw her father drag her mother down a staircase by the neck, unaware the girl was watching.

It’s not clear when the incident took place, but it apparently happened before the couple separated in 2010.

McPhilmy began dating a Nassau County police detective after the separation, and Gawker reported that O’Reilly called in a favor after raising money for the department and got an internal affairs investigation launched against the new boyfriend.

The couple divorced in 2011 and have been engaged in a bitter custody dispute.

O’Reilly tried to have his former wife excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church in 2013, according to another Gawker report.

Fox News and O’Reilly did not respond to requests for comment made by the website.

O’Reilly denied the allegations in a brief statement to Politico.

“All allegations against me in these circumstances are 100 percent false,” the statement read. “I am going to respect the court-mandated confidentiality put in place to protect my children and will not comment any further.”

During a long and very contentious interview with White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, CNN "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper snapped back at Donald Trump's righthand man for trying to mock him for not wearing a mask during the interview where Meadows was not in the studio.

After grilling Meadows for agreeing to designate Vice President Mike Pence as an "essential worker" so he can continue to campaign for Donald Trump after his office became a COVID-19 hotspot, the CNN host pressed Meadows why the president continues to refuse to wear a mask and doesn't demand it of his rallygoers.

Chris Wallace battles GOP chairwoman over laptop smear: ‘Do you have any proof Joe Biden took one penny?’

Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel on Sunday refused to say if she had any proof of allegations of corruption against Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son Hunter.

Fox News host Chris Wallace grilled McDaniel about the Trump campaign's smear against the Biden family on Fox News Sunday.

"Do you have any proof -- because he's denied it -- do you have any proof that Joe Biden every took one penny from either a foreign country or a foreign company?" Wallace asked.

"I think that's incumbent upon the press to start investigating," McDaniel replied. "I think what's frightening is we should have a free and fair press that should be looking at a laptop that has not been disputed by the Biden campaign to be authentic. These emails are deeply troubling as it looks like Hunter Biden is negotiating with a Chinese energy company to profit, not just for himself, but for his father."
