Marty also slammed Danielle's relationship with her daughters, Jillian and Christine, as "a lesbian affair."

The docs also wrote about an incident involving Marty and Danielle's daughters that occurred when the family drove home from a birthday party. “Marty spent the entire drive home terrorizing her daughter, yelling and calling her horrific names.”

Marty “disparaged and humiliated” Danielle “by telling her that if she was unable to perform oral sex, she was ‘worthless.'" He would “repeatedly exercise control over her by making her cook, clean, and care for the home while simultaneously berating her for not earning enough money.”

Danielle is seeking spousal support from Marty in the divorce.
