“After we were married and I gave birth to our daughter in April of 2012, Dean completely changed. I began to worry and wonder if he had ‘fallen off the wagon’ and turned to alcohol and drugs again or was having affairs. This was a major concern of mine, as he is a recovering heroin addict. To my dismay and shock, he was doing both. An onslaught of disturbing experiences with him began from that point forward.”
“When June was about seven months old, Dean went out and had another drinking binge and arrived home past three o’clock in the morning. I was up all night worried and waiting for him to come home when I heard rumblings from the garage. I was completely horrified to find him passed out with the garage door closed and the car running. I quickly opened the door and frantically made sure he was still breathing. When I woke him, he got horrifyingly angry, screaming as he made his way to the powder room and vomited. When I checked in on him to see if he was OK, he became violent. He threw me around and almost killed me, pushing me so hard I fell, sustaining multiple bruises all over my body and persistent back pain since the incident. I then went to the residence of my ex-husband, a well-respected surgeon, who had to dress my wounds, as I was frightened to go to the police or hospital. I prayed this would never happen again. This was not the first nor the last time he was violent with me. He attempted to strangle me several times throughout the years.”
“Dean would often tell me he could have his ex-wife killed and that he ‘knew people.’ I have been so scared of drinking my coffee or driving my car for fear that Dean has tampered with them in some way. I remain petrified that he is going to have me killed once I say I would leave him. There have been numerous times when he would get angry in the car and drive so fast while saying he would kill both of us. I watched the film, ‘Sleeping with the Enemy, and can relate completely.
We, as a couple, have seen clinical psychologist, Dr. Rene Hollander, who requested Dean see a psychiatrist, which Dean did. The doctor prescribed him medicine to treat his bipolar disorder. Dean did not take the medicine that was prescribed or even acknowledge that he has this mental condition for which he has been diagnosed by a doctor. Dr. Hollander wrote me a letter documenting Dean’s confession of abuse. Dr. Hollander has also stated he would not see Dean as a client again.”
“Dean cannot control his temper, and we are all walking on eggshells 24 hours a day. It is debilitating. You cannot touch the car door or the car handle, or leave any fingerprints anywhere without Dean completely flipping out. ‘Fuck, you touched the door! Watch your finger prints!’”
“It’s truly compulsive. It is so intense that his own family is not comfortable coming over to our house, as no one can do or touch anything.”
“In the days immediately prior to this past Thanksgiving 2017, upon my questioning him about extramarital affairs which I confirmed to have occurred when I was pregnant with our daughter, he got so violent that I ended up going to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department with a friend to report it. I had noticeable bruises on my arms. I decided not to press charges because they told me he would be in jail over the Thanksgiving holiday. Since he is June’s father, I backed away from this decision not wanting to ruin the holiday for the rest of the family. When I look back, I wish I had pressed charges and had him arrested. I have been so scared that he would have me injured or killed.”
“Dean has been threatening to take his own life if I leave him. He has made a gun gesture to his head in front of June within the past month. He has stated to me that he will ride off his horse and no one will find him. He has also referenced me finding him hanging in our room like the tragic suicide of Chester Bennington, a personal friend of ours. Dean does not regularly attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings or do anything proactive to keep his addictions in check.
There have been many other instances of his erratic and scary behavior. Once on a car ride to San Diego, he completely flipped out and made me cry and told me to get myself together. He’s continuously calling me terribly foul names like ‘fucking cunt’ regularly. He is constantly and extremely verbally abusive to me. It disgusts and frightens all of my friends and family.”
“He recently had a physical altercation with Robert DeLeo of which I have proof and photos. They are two grown men creating physical injuries on one another.”
“Dean said on June 6, 2018 if I ever have Aaron in the house or the ranch there will be two dead men in my life. He also stated that he doesn’t have the $300,000. He was saying anti-semitic comments towards Aaron who is of Jewish descent.”
