Posted on 06/12/2012 5:47:34 AM PDT by Zakeet
Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s former inlaws angrily denied allegations today that she was mentally ill and would beat her husband in the years before she hanged herself in an abandoned barn at her upstate New York compound last month.
Kennedy, according to court papers obtained by Newsweek, accused his wife Mary Richardson Kennedy of pummeling his face, resulting in a black eye and a permanently damaged tear duct, killing the family dog, stealing from Kennedy's daughter from a previous marriage, and threatening suicide and blackmail.
The charges were included in explosive and confidential court documents dating from their 2010 divorce.
Richardson's siblings, who fought Kennedy in the days after her suicide for custody of her body, called the allegations "vindictive lies" told in the heat of ugly divorce proceedings.
"The scurrilous affidavit, which is the entire basis for the Newsweek article, was written by Bobby Kennedy as part of a contentious custody battle and was nothing more than a brutal psychological weapon in the divorce case," the Richardson family said in a statement released today by their lawyer.
"This latest piling on is proof perfect of the unbelievable emotional and psychological abuse that Mary endured during the last years of her life, and now in death. The false claim that Mary suffered from BPD [borderline personality disorder] is also an insult to those who do struggle with this serious mental illness."
In a bombshell document obtained by Newsweek, Kennedy accuses Mary of physically abusing him for years and says he told her family that a psychologist had diagnosed her with BPD.

This reply by the Richardson family ... in response to the Kennedy family spin ... in response to their maintaining the family legacy ... in response to upholding the Camel-lot legacy ... in response to bolstering the image of the paragons of liberalism ...
That being said, this woman was a homewrecker and should have anticipated there would be hell to pay.
It wouldn’t bother me a bit if I never heard another word about the Kennedy’s—but that’s just me. Apparently, they still sell newspapers.
Trash is trash, money doesn’t make a difference.
SOOOOOOO, she hit him, killed the dog, he divorced her yet he wanted her BODY TO BURY IN THE KENNEDY PLOT??? That makes NO sense!! He is an evil person.
I suspect Kennedy had her killed. Women typically don’t hang themselves. They use drugs.
I completely agree. And perhaps that is why he wanted the body.
Women use pills or cut themselves in the tub
If he thinks she's "sick", he should take a good long look in the nmirror.
It’s THE KENNEDY DATING GAME!!!!!
“Bachelor Number 1.....if we were at a pool party, would you make me give your friend a blow job?”
“That’s the crudest thing I’ve ever heard of!”
“You’re no Kennedy. Bachelor Number 2.....would you have sex with me in your wife’s bed while she’s downstairs?”
“That seems rather ill mannered.”
“Oh....another Republican......Bachelor Number 3......If we went for a drive and you drove the car into a lake, would you rescue me or hike your behind on out of there?”
“I’d act like I didn’t even know you.”
“Now there’s a Kennedy! I choose Bachelor Number 3!”
It must be tough living with a Kennedy.
Wondered about that.
I beleive you are correct, somewhere I read that in general no violence to suicide for woman.
Just because she beat him doesn’t mean she’s insane. Sounds like he had it coming. That would be about par for the male Kennedys.
What a disgusting pig he is.
yeah a lot of wives do similar things when they find out the dude has been sleeping around. Some wives woulda done worse.
That's a very astute observation. I agree.
Paragons of liberalism indeed. In typical fashion, they’re always blaming someone else. In the end, this will eventually be reduced to financial considerations.
Drugs would have been more believable using the Marilyn Monroe technique. But then the value of his house would drop a couple of hundred thousand. Small town police have little to no experience dealing with suicide/murder situations.
I suspect this guy is pure evil. He probably planted his daughter's missing items in Mary's bureau. He's ready to move on and marry his actress girlfriend and the church won't give him another annulment.
Documents are sealed in family court in order to protect the minor children. Someone leaked this to Newsweek. Any guess who that wuld be? He’s more concerned about the Kennedy name then his own children. Just when I think I couldn’t despise the Kennedy’s anymore. Public trashing of your children’s mother is the absolute lowest any father can go.
