Wife Describes Peter Getty's Coke-Addled Porn Binge

Allegations that he was an abusive husband might be enough to wipe the smug from Peter Getty's grin.

The ugly mess that is the divorce between oil heir Peter Getty and wife Jacqueline "Jacqui" Getty took a turn for the salacious in the latest statement from Jacqueline.

She describes a scene of Peter alone in the room of the couple's Malibu beach house surrounded by tissues and watching pornography online with "a white powdery substance" on his desk and face.

When Peter came downstairs, blood dripping from his nose, Jacqueline says she confronted him about the drug use triggering Peter to hit her so violently her arm broke.

Peter denies her version of events, accusing Jacqueline of being drunk and abusing the painkiller hydrocodone, though Jacqueline graciously suggested that he misremembered events because he was so strung-out at the time.

A cocaine addiction would certainly explain the epic online screeds Peter posted to in the comments section of SFist a year later after being roundly criticized for his blog on SFGate.

Jacqueline is seeking $539,201 a month in spousal support.

Jackson West wonders why on earth this wasn't just settled quietly and privately.
