Adrienne Maloof and her estranged husband Dr. Paul Nassif are in the middle of a bitter divorce battle and while accusations of physical abuse have been made by both parties, there has been no physical evidence presented to the public — until now. Adrienne’s personal chef Bernie Guzman took to his Facebook page and uploaded several photos of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star with apparent bruising, along with some shocking accusations about Paul.
“Now you know….Everyone else needs to know. It’s a secret I have kept….he must be stopped,” Bernie wrote today on his personal Facebook page. “Adrienne did not put me up to this…..I feel everyone needs to know. I’m sure she will be relieved everyone knows.”
The photos he posted showed his famous boss topless and facing away from the camera, showing her wounds from an alleged altercation she had with Paul. The photos appear to have been taken by Adrienne herself using a mirror.
If Adrienne really didn’t put Bernie up to it, it seems to beg the question why he was in possession of the photos. Perhaps Adrienne gave him copies out of fear that something could have happened to her? Bernie posted the photos to Facebook which means he didn’t sell them, so it’s not like the guy was just trying to make a quick buck.
Bernie’s rant continued later in the day when he wrote, “Now you know who and what he really is. Adrienne Maloof was pushed to the ground. Punched and beaten. He is a beast.” After a few of his Facebook friends questioned why Adrienne never went to police, he stated, “Adrienne would not press charges.. She was worried about her children and the custody battle..what would happen to her children when they were out of her site. A mothers worry.”
Meanwhile, Dr. Paul Nassif maintains his innocence and has released a statement to TMZ via his lawyer which reads, “Any suggestion that the photos show my client struck Adrienne Maloof is a complete fabrication. No physical assault ever occurred.” As for how the injuries occured, he adds, “I can’t speculate how these marks occurred. I know the woman does martial arts.”
Here are the rest of the photos, which are similar to the ones above, but slightly different:
