Marty Caffrey isn’t holding back and seems to be ready and willing to expose the truth about his soon-to-be ex-wife Danielle Staub.
In a new statement obtained by Radar Online, Marty accuses Danielle of “financial, verbal and emotional abuse.”
Marty reveals that his marriage to Danielle fell apart while planning her birthday party last weekend.
“Her birthday party was the tipping point. I was left completely in the dark. I wasn’t allowed to know who was invited. My family and friends were left out until the last minute only because I kept pressing the issue,” he alleged. “There was no intention of including my family or friends. But I was expected to pay for it. Which I refused to do. This arrogant, disrespectful, presumptuous and entitled attitude I find disturbing. All of this is why I did not attend. You want to throw a self-indulgence, attention seeking party for yourselves, want me to pay for it, but I’m not allowed to know anything about it or to ask any questions? What world do you live in?”
However, Marty’s allegations don’t end there. He also claims he was forced to cancel his credit cards after Danielle continuously abused them and his bank accounts.
“I’ve done OK in my life but if that’s not good enough then there’s nothing I can do about that,” he continued. “I bailed Danielle out of a really tough situation. I gave her a platform to be relevant again. Because I believed in her and loved her. I still love her and still believe in her. And her payback is nothing but financial, verbal and emotional abuse. I’ve tried dozens of times to talk to Danielle about this but she just buries her head in the sand.”
“There is never one question asked to me in that house. Except things like “can you go pick up stuff at the market”, or “make sure you Venmo this or that.” I never hear “What’s new with you?” “How’s your family?” Nothing. It gets back to this unbelievable level of entitlement and narcissism that exists. It wasn’t always that way but when she became relevant again, with my help, she changed. There’s never any time for just “us”. She should be thanking me, not verbally and emotionally abusing me, not dominating me, not ignoring me.”
Marty goes to on say that Danielle “didn’t like” his kids and “isolated” him from his family.
Meanwhile, Marty admits he’s also made “mistakes” in their marriage and has “embarrassed” his wife.
“I certainly have made some mistakes and I own them. Sometimes I have embarrassed her. And for those times I’ve apologized and I will continue to do so. She, nor anybody else, never deserves to be treated poorly,” he admitted.
“I’m sure Danielle could list my faults and her side of the story. And I recognize that. I have many faults. I’ve often asked her to admit we both have 50% blame and we can go from there. But all we talk about is my 50% which makes it 100% my fault.”
As for Danielle, her rep tells Radar that the RHONJ star is “disappointed” in Marty’s statement.
“Danielle is very disappointed that Marty spent time composing a three-page statement for the media but won’t sit down and talk with her about the situation,” the rep told Radar. “She is also disappointed that he seems much more concerned about press coverage than he does about his marriage.”
For now, Danielle plans to “fight” for her marriage while Marty is ready to file for divorce.
Yikes. I thought these two could work things about but it seems like that might not be an option. All I can say is I hope the Bravo cameras have rushed to NJ to get this on film for season 9.
