Michael Jace

Our Son Was Terrified Of Him

... Says Ex-Wife

5/20/2014 1:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0520_Michael-Jace_getty
Michael Jace was a horrible father who made his son cower in fear … lording over him with an “intimidation style of discipline” … this according to the boy's mother and Jace's first wife.

In court docs filed in 2005 and obtained by TMZ ... Jennifer Bitterman claims Jace often threatened the boy with corporal punishment … and would spank him for crying or for being afraid.

It’s heartbreaking … Bitterman says Jordan would cry and beg not to go when he had to spend time with his father.  She says she encouraged Jordan to be brave … and she would “reassure him that [Jace] loves him and that he is safe with him.”

As we've reported ... Jordan and another child watched the violence unfold Monday night in their home ... when Jace shot and killed his wife, April.

Glad to know that the one he killed actually went after the first wife in legal do***ents telling everyone he was a great dad and had zero violent tendencies. She sealed her own fate. Very sad that he destroyed these two childrens lives and the first wife probably feels more guilt than this murdering bastard.

They should have listened to the ex wife when they had the chance. Now, it's a little too late.

All right TMZ milkers [Harvey] we get it. Such a shocker that someone that could murder his own wife (or anyone for that matter) would be a real arse of the highest order.

"Michael Jace was a horrible father who made his son cower in fear … lording over him with an “intimidation style of discipline” … this according to the boy's mother and Jace's first wife." That doesn't make the statement true. Ex's usually have an ax to grind.

I guess since he confessed and turned himself in something has to be done to make a story out of this. Thank goodness for the ex wife. She's a gossip savior!

Isn't he the guy who graduated with honors from the Jesse Jackson school in Chicago that teaches you how to be a black street thug and kill anyone who angers you? I think Al Sharpton said he was such a nice guy and you couldn't not love him.... Piece of Sh-t!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow...This was in the court do***ents from 2005 I wonder if the ex was bitter at the time and lied or if this information is true? I wonder how she feels today. He seems like a monster if all this information is true he belongs in jail.
