DISGRACED politician John Edwards used to beat his cancer-stricken wife Elizabeth, according to a bombshell new report.
Two-time Presidential loser John — who had an affair with some woman called Rielle Hunter, with whom he fathered a love child– and Elizabeth announced last week that they’d be divorcing.
“John lost his temper big-time,” a source close to Elizabeth told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“She has the divorce papers drawn up, but she can amend them to charge John with domestic violence.
“She’s holding that over his head right now — and he’s scared. Elizabeth is in control.
“Elizabeth has slapped John in the past during fights over his extramarital affair with Rielle.
“She was so tormented by John’s cheating and lies that she lashed out physically at him many times, even slapping him. On a couple of occasions, when the fights became heated, she grabbed him by the shoulders and screamed, ‘Why, why, why?!’
“Elizabeth would break down in tears and try to make John explain why he was throwing his family and political life away.
“During one of the confrontations, Elizabeth grabbed his arms and shook him so hard that John had to restrain her.”
