Daniel Baldwin: My Wife Threatened to Kill Me

7/13/2011 10:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained the chilling declaration written by Daniel Baldwin, explaining what drove him to file for divorce, including repeated threats to kill him with a knife ... all in front of their 2 kids.

Daniel says in his declaration, Joanne once came into the bedroom and said she had just watched a documentary on women who kill their husbands, saying, "Now I know how to do it, I understand why they did it. You have been warned." Daniel says their daughter heard the comment and asked him, "Is Mommy going to kill us?"

According to the declaration, Daniel says Joanne is "highly intoxicated in our home," adding, "She screams over money and proceeds to wake both children up by screaming and throwing objects around the house."

Baldwin claims he's been repeatedly brutalized by Joanne, alleging she has punched him in the head, pulled a knife on him, slapped him and hit him in the face with a phone.

Daniel claims she drinks so much she blacks out.  The straw that broke the camel's back occurred Sunday, when Daniel claims Joanne went into a "violent rage" after arguing with her mom.  He says she punched him in the head and face.  Police were called and deemed her unfit to care for the kids, telling Daniel to remove them from the house.

As we first reported, Daniel got a restraining order and won temporary custody of the 2 kids.  He has also filed for divorce.

I don't care if you are a man or woman there is no reason you should be treated badly by a spouse or significant other. It is not a matter of controlling the other person that is a bigoted remark. At least he got the kids out of a dangerous environment.

Dunno... if what Daniel claims is true, I'd be pretty scared of her.


Although I wonder what the sex was like.

Wow....she sounds off her rocker! I know he has had plenty of problems in the past, but it sounds like he is trying to get his life together for his kids. She needs some serious help if she is threatening him in front of the kids! Good for Daniel to get his kids out of this situation and I wish him the best of luck for him and his children.

Daniel, what took you so long? You could have come home to dead children at any given time based on this woman's prior behavior. Sounds like she's just plain mad, in addition to being a drunk. It would months or years in rehab to change this pathetic mess. Take the kids and run like hell.

nof p.s.

There ARE exceptions to this rule...

Rule:

That all women need to be medicated, in restraints - and locked forth.

But not many - not many exceptions.

To wit:

If Mildred had been medicated, in restraints - and locked forth?

Arnold and Maria -

Would still be together.

Daniel Baldwin and his two children -

Obviously need police protection -

If she went into a violent rage and hit him, and the police went to their house and saw evidence of this, shouldn´t she be in jail for domestic abuse?

And they say gay people are a threat to the institution of marriage. The only threat to marriage -- as evidenced here -- is insanity.
