Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly's vicious custody battle with ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy just got uglier!

O'Reilly released a statement through his attorney Monday night denying the shocking claims of physical assault. "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."

However, Gawker recently obtained court documents from O'Reilly's daughter's testimony transcript, which confirm the teenager's claims that she witnessed her father "choking her mom" while he "dragged her down some stairs" by her throat.

The alleged incident could have happened before the estranged couple split in 2010. But a source told Gawker a different timeline, indicating "that the daughter, who is 16 years old, told the forensic examiner about the incident within the past year."

The transcript also contains statements regarding the anchor's "uncontrollable rage" around family members, which caused him to –according to his daughter – call McPhilmy an "adulterer" on one occasion.

McPhilmy and O'Reilly — who came under scrutiny recently after the veracity of some of his past reporting was questioned — were divorced in September 2011 and initially shared joint custody of their children.

McPhilmy decided to go for sole custody and do away with that arrangement after O'Reilly reportedly put Lynne Kulakowski, who was supposed to be a neutral therapist for their children, on his payroll. A judge declared the move made Kulakowski responsible "to perform virtually all of O'Reilly's parental duties."

Neither O'Reilly nor McPhilmy have responded to requests for comment.
