The bassist from the ironically named band Smash Mouth is in a legal battle against his wife for threatening to smash her mouth in. Sometimes this stuff just writes itself. Says Digital Spy,
Smash Mouth bassist Paul De Lisle has reportedly been accused of domestic violence by his wife.
However, the musician has stated that it is he who is the victim of abuse from Mary DeLisle, reports TMZ.
The pair are said to have both obtained restraining orders against each other, while both accusing their partner of domestic abuse.
Mary De Lisle was granted a restraining order against the bassist in December, claiming that he “called me a c*** and told me to get out of his house, he threatened to kick my teeth in”.
She added: “[He] has slapped me in the head and back, thrown objects at me, locked me in a closet, locked me out of the house, broken down doors to get to me, pinned me on the ground and sat on my chest, dragged me out of bed by my ankles.”
Paul De Lisle obtained his own restraining order a few weeks ago, stating that his wife “grabbed my hair and struck me with several blows, she kicked me and tried to break my fingers.
“[She] repeatedly goes for my fingers, in an attempt to render me unable to play music, which is what I do for a living.”
I’d say she was trying to do him a favor. Last time I checked, Smash Mouth hasn’t been relevant since 1999. I’d say it is time to quit your day job.
