Paul Nassif

My Wife Attacked Me

After Guzzling Vodka

9/8/2012 12:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0828_paul_nassif_adriene_maloof_article_tmzPaul Nassif is Absolut-ly convinced ... vodka turns his wife Adrienne Maloof into a violent, abusive, angry woman who was prone to smacking him in the face.

According to a declaration -- filed in his nasty custody fight -- Paul claims he has been repeatedly at the receiving end of Adrienne's physical attacks ... the worst of which occurred in July on Maloof's home turf in Las Vegas.  Paul says they got into a spat over whether Adrienne's mother could come to a party.  Paul says his wife downed 4 vodka sodas -- with a little grapefruit juice -- and became "increasingly hostile." 

Paul says Adrienne went on a 45-minute rampage, physically and verbally demeaning him.  He says she accused him of cheating and calling him a piece of s**t.  Paul says Adrienne screamed he was a horrible dad, and repeatedly beat him in the face, chest and legs. 

TMZ previously reported Adrienne filed legal docs claiming Paul has an explosive temper and carries a gun ... sometimes in easy reach of her children.  She mentions she took a photo of the gun in the side pocket of his briefcase.

Paul says in his papers Adrienne set him up by taking the gun out of the secure briefcase while he was snoozing and placed it precariously out in the open.

All anyone has to do is check out RHNY for the last two years and they'll see she verbally abused him and was hostile and angry. Paul was very calm even in the face of her tirades. She's a real piece of work.

TMZ - show some class and stop reporting on these stories that will only cause even more emotional damage to their young children.

This was in their Declaration for the Judge to see...not to be posted on TMZ. Writing a Declaration is part of the divorce process, so I don't think either one is "airing their dirty laundry" for the world to see. Sad that TMZ is posting something that should be just between them, their attorney's and the judge.

I've met both Adrienne and Paul, and like them both. I am hoping that this is PR (no such thing as bad PR) for her new vodka label. Wish them both well, and hope the boys realize all people fight sometimes, and that they are truly loved.

These two idiots need to know it is time to stop this
it will embaress them when it is finally over to see their dirty laundry aired here for all to see.
But what is the most hurtful is that someday when the kids can read it will come back to haunt them just how much damage they have selfishly done to the children by allowing the world to read about this very public and humilitating divorce. My message to Nassif and Maloof is stop embaressing your familes go for joint custody of those kids you both made those children... unless one of you is doing something soo disgusting to those children or hindering their existence on this planet then please stop.
