Lost Costar Claims Fox Hits Women "Often"

There's no love lost between Matthew Fox and former costar Dominic Monaghan. The latter has publicly accused the former of being a woman beater, asserting Matthew Fox has hit women on multiple occasions.

Is Matthew Fox a woman beater? Dominic Monaghan, the actor's former Lost costar, claims so!

The "Matthew Fox beats women" gossip began when a female Lost fan asked Dominic Monaghan to help get his series costar to join Twitter too. The 35-year-old English actor shot back bluntly, "He beats women. No thanks."

The woman then responded, “WHAT ABOUT ALL THOSE GOOD TIMES YOU HAD TOGETHER?!” Though it seems she may have assumed too much about the morale on the set of Lost.

Dominic Monaghan then replied, "how do you know we ever did?you don’t know either of us.he beats women.not isolated incidents.often.not interested."

Not surprisingly, word of the woman-beating accusations quickly reached Matthew Fox. A source speaking to TMZ denied the allegations outright, adding that Monaghan's behavior was baffling. Though the two actors haven't spoken in a few years, the source claimed there was no bad blood between them during their Lost days.

Unfortunately for Matthew Fox's reputation however, there was that private-punching incident in 2011. The actor allegedly hit a female bus driver in the genitals and chest after she blocked him from boarding a bus that had been rented for a bachelor party.

As of Thursday, Dominic Monaghan has neither removed his accusations from Twitter nor made any sort of trackback -- though he did share this message with his followers: "Oh haters,for you to feel SO strongly, you know you LOVE me really.I love you too.Lets dance.You can't help yourself.Cmon,you'll feel better."

Well, Dom just tweeted that his ex-girlfriend Evangeline Lilly is a cheater. The guy obviously has problems and I bet that he even tweeted that crap about Fox was because Lilly and Fox were very close friends. He's just a bitter guy. And it's been a year and half and not ONE single "victim" has come forward. Dom is full of lies.

I love (loved) Matthew Fox as much as the next Lost fan, but I don't think everyone should be so quick to file Monaghan away as a jealous liar. Maybe he's been sitting on this piece of knowledge for a while, and finally had it with allowing Fox to continue on with his angelic persona. Also, if Fox had bashed Monaghan and labeled him as woman beater, I bet you 10 to 1 that everyone would take Fox's word for it. So why should Monaghan's word mean any less? Monaghan could have said a million different things like cheater, alcoholic, druggie, washed up, one hit wonder... why woman beater? Also, Fox has yet to defend himself. Don't get me wrong. I really want this to not be true. I want Fox to be as kind, honest, and heroic as Jack is on Lost, but the truth is that we'll never what Fox is really like in real life.

I find it pretty disturbing that someone can say anything and readily be believed by so many. Matthew Fox does appear to have some issues with drinking..but that's not the same as being an abuser. Dominic seems to have some anger issues in regards to Fox....some deep seated resentment. What he said out of the blue seemed spurred on by a fan asking for Fox when he wanted it to be all about him. He's probably resented Matthew Fox for years and was likely drinking himself. Now it's turned into a fiasco that serves no one.

I don't think that Matthew Fox has the greatest reputation! But the comments made about him by Monaghan don't seem to hold much credibility. And they seemed very off the cuff in response to something completely unrelated. I don't really understand why he would blast this on Twitter?
