Robert F. Kennedy Jr
. and wife Mary Kennedy had a turbulent relationship long before she committed suicide, and  just-revealed 911 records show that cops had to repeatedly calm things down.

Police reports obtained by the NY Daily News show the estranged couple called 911 over a dozen times in the last few years ... most notably in May of 2011, around the time RFK went public with his new love interest -- actress Cheryl Hines.

In one incident Bedford cops found the couple outside in the midst of a "domestic disturbance" with "books and papers strewn about the area." Three hours later police returned again to find RFK locked out of his house.

Just a few months prior police were summoned to the home while Mary Kennedy was having an "emotional breakdown" ... the officer on scene said he found RFK in his bedroom trying to calm Mary down. 

There are at least a dozen other 911 calls cited in the reports which required police presence at the couple's Westchester home.

The calls you mention show her as being emotionally unstable: locking him out, needing calming and probably the culprit throwing things out the house. Hence, I can see why he bolted. She was a loon!!!

Do you have eyes?    

I believe a lot of women would lock their husbands out if they were cheating, not just the loons.

She didn't get/want the proper help to deal w/ her mental illness. She failed as a mom but most importantly a KENNEDY. NEXT!

Robert is just like a Kennedy they all suck his dad sucked he was shot his uncle sucked he was shot his cousin a rapist they all feel they are above the law and maybe they are. But lets face facts when Ted Kennedy died his replacement was a Republican senetor the democratic senetor thought that she could run on the basis that Kennedy's widow supported her too bad nobody else did.

Call me uninformed, but given the same situation for the average citizen as for M.K., wouldn't the average person in M.K.'s position have been taken to the "hospital" for the same behavior at least once during these kinds of domestic disputes?

Cheryl Hines, the wife hanged her self, now you have her husband all to yourself. I'm just wondering, do you feel like you won? Well, we'll pray for you cause we wouldn't want to see you at the end of that rope one day.

This is why you don't have 11 children! rfk jr was one of 11, and probably did not get the guidance that he needed. Twice divorced, six kids, a mistress, and a suicide. How much drama do you need?
Have two kids, devote what time, money and energy you have, don't neglect them like the Kennedy's must have neglected their gazillion kids!
