Danielle Staub's Ex Sues -- I NEVER Beat Her

12/7/2010 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Danielle Staub's ex-husband is making good on his threat against a book company -- after they ignored warnings that Danielle's new tell-all was packed with terrible lies ... including allegations that he beat the hell out of her.

1004-danielle-staub-book-ex-getty-credit
Kevin Maher has filed a lawsuit against the Simon & Schuster publishing company -- claiming they knowingly published false information about him in Staub's new tell-all, "The Naked Truth."

In the docs, filed last week in California, Maher claims S&S "failed to use reasonable care to determine the truth or falsity" of several statements that Staub makes about him in her book.

Among the statements that Maher is pissed about -- Staub claims he beat her up so badly, she had to be hospitalized for a concussion and "assorted contusions."

Maher tells us he's demanding $10 million to make things right.

A rep for S&S tells us they haven't seen the complaint yet, but plan on vigorously defending it.

Got a police report, Danielle? Did you see a physician? With no witnesses and none of the above, it's just her word against his and she wants to sell books.

Mel Gibson is so stupid he admitted to it!

Although, his followers here on TMZ are even more intelligence challenged because even after he did admit it, they didn't understand he was admitting to assaulting Oksana and domestic violence!

They went into complete denial even though they heard it for themselves.

Danielle and all her craziness was really the only reason to watch the show. Both of Caroline's adult sons are "tiddy babies" who live at home still. As for Teresa, you just see more tacky stuff that'll be in the bankruptcy auction.

Danielle and Kevin did have a beautiful daughter(s) though.

It's sad when parents lie on each other, publicly or not, and fight it out in the courts. Poor kids.

He actually made an appearance on the show at his daughter's 16th Bday. He had a new, younger wife with a bigger ring Danielle was jealous of. Ha!

He has admitted in print to beating Danielle. As stated above, Mel Gibson admits to beating Oksana but many of you side with him anyway - you can't reason with the unreasonable.
And Kelly - Danielle's children are not with Maher.

Where does this guy fit in the list of her ex's??? I thought her ex-husband was Tom Staub - the father of her two girls. When was she married to Maher?

Mel Gibson admitted to slapping a hysterical woman who was in the middle of a temper tatrumn who was shaking a 2 mo old baby around like it was a rag doll, thus endangering the child's life. He was afraid she was going to hurt the child. Hell I would have done more the just slap her ! You don't put a 2 mo old in the middle of a argument NO MATTER what your excuse is. That is not Abuse...........

As for this woman I just bet she had more to do in the fight then just be a victem. she looks like she can give as good as she gets.

I hope he takes her to the cleaners,

My God, why do these women do that to their faces !!!!! she looks like a starved greyhound dog . theres nothing remotely beautiful about her. Like a soup bone thats had all the meat boiled off !!!

I have no clue who either of these clowns are. That said if he wins his ten million dollar judgement I don't think it's too much to assume that's $9,999,999.99 more than this book probably made.

Britney Spears is a joke    

Hey Kelly, that was Tom Staub, her 2nd husband who made an appearance at the kids birthday party on the show. Maher is her 1st husband. As far as I am concerned, Danielle is a psycho who doesn't know reality from her own lies. She also is one of THE ugliest women I have ever seen. She is desperate, apparent and pathetic. 'Nuff said.

This whore is just way too ugly to look at. Combine that with a just as ugly personality and what you have is a hideous mess. She is so f'ed up she doesn't know she's f'ed up. Just so ya know, hideous is defined as 1. Ugly or disgusting to look at. 2. EXTREMELY unpleasant. Yep, that sums it up. F'off Danielle.
