Cheating seems like the least of Briana Renee’s worries during her two-year marriage to Matt Grundhoffer. In an explosive restraining order, the Little Women: LA star accused her ex of death threats, bestiality and proposals of sex acts with minor children. Now, her estranged father Robert Kealiher is slamming his son-in-law exclusively to RadarOnline.com.
“The world is a sick place, Kealiher, 69, told Radar. “I’m sad to hear that. I’m sorry to hear that. I know nothing. I haven’t spoken to him. I haven’t talked Briana. It’s all news to me.”
Kealiher became estranged from his daughter because he disapproved of Grundhoffer's domestic violence arrest.
Radar exclusively reported he was hit with a felony charge of second-degree assault and domestic violence after attacking a former girlfriend on July 17, 2012. He was ordered to complete a 12-month program and pay $500 to the Crime Victims Fund.
“Domestic violence is a good indication of a person’s past,” he said. “That’s why we told Briana we don’t support this. He never told me, ‘I changed.’ That’s why I was against her dating a guy like that unless he changed.”
Although Grundhoffer was accused in court docs of proposing sex acts with his minor child, Kealiher insisted Renee’s daughter Leiana from a previous relationship is “fine.”
“She’s here right now,” he said. “She never talks about Matt, nothing like that.”
In court documents obtained by Radar, Renee filed for divorce from Grundhoffer on November 30. She requested spousal support and for the court to terminate any support to him.
On December 8, she filed a request for a domestic violence restraining order against hhim, asking to protect her and their 1-year-old son Maverick.
Renee claimed Grundhoffer called her a “c**t,” “stupid piece of s**t” and a “worthless b***h” on November 24.
“Matthew specifically states he would take our son away from me and take him to Washington,” Briana alleged.
Two weeks before the incident, she claimed he went on a “four day drinking binge.” She alleged he “wanted to die” and verbally attacked her.
She claimed to have found graphic sexual messages between Grundhoffer and another woman on November 28.
“The conversations were recent and involved bestiality and the proposals of sex acts with minor children, including the proposal of involving sex acts with Matthew’s minor child, age 12, from a previous relationship,” she claimed. “I am fearful for him to be left alone with our minor son.”
On April 2017, she alleged he threatened to “kill everyone in the house,” including Renee and her daughter, she claimed in court docs.
He also allegedly threatened to kill Renee in front of the children on another occasion.
She requested sole legal and physical custody of Maverick with no visitation. She also demanded he undergo a 52-week batterer intervention program. The order was granted. She will return to court on January 19 to make it permanent.
