'Pregnant Man' Thomas Beatie and his wife of nine years, Nancy, announced their split last month amid rumors of domestic abuse. Now a video unearthed by TMZ may lay weight to the charges.
In the video, Beatie's wife Nancy is seen passed out on the floor. The couple's young daughter tries to wake her mother. Once awoken, Nancy becomes enraged and grabs the girl into a sleep-hold and drags her into the next room.
Throughout the three-minute video, Nancy is pictured attacking Beatie with various household objects, including the couple's laptop. Beatie remains pretty calm as the ordeal transpires.
Nancy takes the laptop into the backyard where a pool is present. She flings the laptop onto the ground.
Nancy threatens to throw the laptop into the poor. Beatie and the children ask her to stop. She eventually throws the laptop into the pool and storms back into the house.
Beatie made headlines in 2008 as the world's first legal transgendered man to give birth.
In 2002 he had a mastectomy and legally became a man. Yet he opted to keep his vagina, uterus, and other female organs so the couple could have children.
Altogether, Beatie and Nancy have three children, a daughter Susan and sons Austin and Jensen. Beatie gave birth to Susan and Austin naturally, while Nancy nursed their son, according to WPIX. Nancy was unable to have the children because she underwent a hysterectomy after having two children from a previous relationship.
Court documents revealed Nancy was a violent alcoholic, who physically and emotionally abused him.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Nancy physically attacked Beatie on multiple occasions, even once hitting him in the crotch in front of their children.
Nancy filed countered the court documents with ones of her own. She denied Thomas' allegations of physical and emotional abuse. Instead, she claimed Thomas was the one doing the abusing in their relationship.
After Beatie appeared in court in April, a judge issued a restraining order against Nancy. She is not allowed to see Beatie or the children outside of three supervised visits per week.
