According to Marty, his marriage to the Real Housewives of New Jersey star fell apart as she planned her 56th birthday celebration earlier this month and ultimately, he was forced to “cancel” his credit cards due to Danielle’s alleged “abuse” of his bank accounts.
“Her birthday party was the tipping point. I was left completely in the dark. I wasn’t allowed to know who was invited. My family and friends were left out until the last minute only because I kept pressing the issue,” he claimed in a statement to Radar Online on July 31. “There was no intention of including my family or friends. But I was expected to pay for it. Which I refused to do.”
“This arrogant, disrespectful, presumptuous and entitled attitude I find disturbing. All of this is why I did not attend. You want to throw a self-indulgence, attention seeking party for yourselves, want me to pay for it, but I’m not allowed to know anything about it or to ask any questions? What world do you live in?” he asked.
“I’ve done OK in my life but if that’s not good enough then there’s nothing I can do about that,” he continued. “I bailed Danielle out of a really tough situation. I gave her a platform to be relevant again. Because I believed in her and loved her. I still love her and still believe in her. And her payback is nothing but financial, verbal and emotional abuse. I’ve tried dozens of times to talk to Danielle about this but she just buries her head in the sand.”
While Marty hasn’t yet filed for divorce, he prompted rumors of a split days ago when he took to Instagram and accused Danielle of pretending to be something she’s not. A short time later, Marty deleted his comment but the drama between him and Danielle seems to be far from over.
“There is never one question asked to me in that house. Except things like ‘Can you go pick up stuff at the market,’ or ‘Make sure you Venmo this or that,’ I never hear ‘What’s new with you?’ ‘How’s your family?’ Nothing. It gets back to this unbelievable level of entitlement and narcissism that exists. It wasn’t always that way but when she became relevant again, with my help, she changed. There’s never any time for just ‘us.’ She should be thanking me, not verbally and emotionally abusing me, not dominating me, not ignoring me,” he noted.
In addition to the alleged abuse he’s been dealt by Danielle, Marty claims he’s been faced with the fact that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star “didn’t like” his kids and attempted to isolate him from his family.
Marty admits that he’s not completely innocent when it comes to the apparent demise of his marriage and even said he’s “embarrassed” his wife. That said, he’s not ready to take full responsibility for their issues and wishes Danielle would own up to her part in their split.
“I’m sure Danielle could list my faults and her side of the story. And I recognize that. I have many faults. I’ve often asked her to admit we both have 50% blame and we can go from there. But all we talk about is my 50% which makes it 100% my fault,” he said.
In response to Marty’s claims, a rep for Danielle, who married Marty in May in the Bahamas, told Radar Online that the mother of two is “disappointed” in her husband.
“Danielle is very disappointed that Marty spent time composing a three-page statement for the media but won’t sit down and talk with her about the situation,” the rep said. “She is also disappointed that he seems much more concerned about press coverage than he does about his marriage.”
Prior to Marty’s statement, an insider told the outlet that Danielle was planning to “fight” for her marriage and was “very upset” about their martial struggles.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey is expected to return to Bravo TV this fall.
