One of Hollywoods beloved actors Patrick Swayze died too young. Many in tinsel town enjoyed his movies, actresses rushed to play the leading lady and even men adored him. He was known for one of the biggest box office movies of his generation, Ghost, which he starred alongside Demi Moore.
But reports are surfacing how Swayze’s wife beat him for years and if that’s true, this woman’s future at celebrity parties and social events will dry up quickly.
From Daily Mail:
The wife of the late actor Patrick Swayze has reportedly denied extraordinary claims she repeatedly beat her husband throughout their marriage and even when he was dying of cancer.
The Dirty Dancing star was married to his former dance partner Lisa Niemi for 34 years before he lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in September 2009, aged 57.
The couple met when they were just 15 years old and were considered to have one of the strongest and happiest marriages in Hollywood.
But now, an unknown person described by as RadarOnline as a long time friend of the couple has claimed that the actor, who also starred in Ghost, was the victim of domestic violence.
The friend also reportedly alleged that when the star was in the final weeks of his battle with cancer, Niemi would often neglect him while his main caregiver his brother Don was away, and that Swayze would be left languishing in dirty clothes.
However, Niemi has strenuously denied the claims, with her spokesperson telling MailOnline: ‘It is categorically untrue. It is that simple.’
It comes as the unnamed friend told RadarOnline, after what they claimed to be a a year-long investigation: ‘She (Niemi) would beat on him and he would beat on the walls and furniture. They fought and I covered up a lot of that — they destroyed hotel rooms, cars, their house …. It was abusive.’
When asked if Niemi would hit Swayze during his 21-month cancer fight, the friend supposedly added: ‘Oh yeah, it didn’t matter. She wouldn’t hit him with stuff — she would claw at his arms and neck. She would punch and slap him.
They are the picture of a healthy and fun loving couple here but if the rumors are true, it seems his wife really took it to him in a forceful way.
I had heard Swayze was a gentlemen and that his mom raised him properly so hitting a woman was never his way. There are a lot husbands out there who stay in battered relationships hoping things get better. Could Swayze have been that guy?
We may never find out the real truth but we are very supportive of the Swayze legacy and nothing like this should ever tarnish it, do you agree?
