Daddy wants some of the pie too.    

If he did it he should pay for it. I was in a relationship once when my the gf hit me then called the police saying I hit her when I hadn't put a hand on her. When the police came they actually took her to jail after someone who witnessed it told the police what actually happened. The witness was a female so I wonder if the police would have believed what actually happened had the witness been a guy. Sometimes there's a lot more to domestic assault than what meets the eye. Wouldn't hang him yet.

He's probably a VERY verbally & emotionally abusive man already. He also sounds like a control freak, an overly jealous ass- while HE'S the one who most likely cheats. Men like this a from a mold. Sadly, even though he became physically abusive with his wife, I bet if you ask her- his words hurt far worse. She should give him the HEAVE-HO ASAP! Abuse only increases & no---- he wil never change. He'll ask for forgiveness (& seem sincere) but Mr. Anger-Management apparently lacks empathy.

Maybe there is a frustration with the MOM shes all for her teenage daughter dating a man in his thirties. Thats the real problem here .Why doesn't anyone see this dysfuntion in this family. Hayden has beenwhored out since she was a baby and mayube the father finally got a conscious.!
