"Charlie did everything he could to destroy my life."

 


 

Charles Chimes In

In his book, Charles claims Bonnie has seasonal bipolar disorder, was exposed to HIV and is promiscuous. He says that even though Bonnie won the court battle, he's not paying her a dime because the book was the truth!

 

"I'm not the son of a bitch she makes me out to be."

 


 

Friends and Family Weigh In

"What's the next step? I think it's murder."
