Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in Nasty Family Feud With In-Laws
ABC News ^ | June 11, 2012 | Russell Goldman

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.

Kennedy’s lie.

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.

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

It does make sense .... by burying her in the Kennedy family plot he looks like he's taking the 'high road' after all the horrible things she's done to him, BUT .... he keeps her from her family who truly do love her so he 'wins', he gets the last laugh, HE is in control.

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!”

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.

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.

Hanging herself in the shed - it reminds me of what happened to the D.C. Madam and her appointments secretary.

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.

"women...don't hang themselves"

They sure do. One of my uncle's wives hanged herself. My dad found the body.

There has to be a Kennedy Wing in Hell to hold this despicable family — especially the men.

Don’t they teach the parts of speech any more. One of the primary rules for adjectives is the adjective should be close to the noun it modifies. Here is the correct headling: “Nasty Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in Family Feud with In-Laws”.

This was a mob hit designed to appear like a suicide. The fairer sex won’t take the ‘big leap’ if it causes their physical appearance to get badly distorted. I don’t know why but the girl’s just don’t ‘role out’ that way! This gal had a pretty big Rx drug thing, so they had to go with hanging. Her liver was about the size of GREAT UNCLE Teddy’s, so RX drugs could be expected to be unreliable. Kennedy’s a tool!

When a woman's family is engaged in a dispute with a heroin addict Kennedy male over questions of wrongdoing I side with the woman's family.

EVERY SINGLE TIME!

It must be tough living with a Kennedy.

And as we've seen over,and over,and over,and over,and over again in the last 50+ years it's even tougher dying with (or,more appropriately,because of) them.

The lesson to be learned from this is that women named “Mary” who get involved with a Kennedy end up dead.

Strange photograph of a Kennedy.

If Mary had abused him, why isn't he wearing the Official Kennedy Klan Neck Brace emblazoned with the Klan's dual mottoes: "Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies" "Only my lawyer and I know how badly this hurts."?
