Fox News political TV host Bill O'Reilly is reportedly still in the midst of a nasty battle with his ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy, whom he divorced in 2011.

Democratic Underground reported that O'Reilly tried to ruin the career of the Nassau County police detective his ex is currently involved with. The site also stated that McPhilmy has since tied the knot to the detective and O'Reilly now finds himself in the middle of a heavy custody battle over the former couple's two children.

The respective drama reportedly involved an attempt by O'Reilly to undermine his custody arrangement by hiring social worker Lynne Kulakowksi, a woman that both he and his former wife had agreed on as a neutral arbiter of their disputes. To top it off, the TV host is even looking to annul his marriage and potentially have McPhilmy kicked out of the Catholic Church.

Gawker reported that the church had gotten wind of the matter and McPhilmy was reprimanded by the parish for continuing to take communion in her Long Island church although she was divorced and remarried, which is allegedly considered a wrong by the Pope.

At a second hearing conducted in January, McPhilmy's attorney claimed that O'Reilly's attorney didn't deny that Kulakowski was accruing a six-figure salary from the political talking head. McPhilmy's attorney's argument called into question Kulakowski's appointment as a neutral arbiter of the former couple's disputes.

Initially, a lower court refused McPhilmy's hearing request in regards to O'Reilly's co-optation of the licensed social worker. However, the appellate court sided with McPhilmy and sent the case back to court for a hearing.

Democratic Underground attempted to contact Fox News, O'Reilly's attorney and Kulakowski, but none of them were available for comment.  Past news coverage of O'Reilly's marital complications can be viewed below.
