American funny man Tom Arnold has revealed just how hard it was to be married to comedy legend Roseanne Barr.
The pair, who were married for four years in the early 1990s, struggled to deal with a number of issues – including his reported infidelity, and her emotional struggles.
‘First it was good,’ he told News Ltd of their marriage.
‘We really decided to get married because one day we were like, nobody likes either one of us, we should probably get married. We had a lot in common but it got crazy.
‘She had issues she has been very open about, she’s got multiple personality disorder. It is a fact that she had 27 different personalities.
‘It was a complicated life and only two of her personalities liked me, that is not a joke so I would come home and there would be somebody that didn’t like me.’
Roseanne hasn’t exactly been complimentary of Tom in past, alleging in a restraining order application at the time of their divorce that the relationship was abusive.
‘I now realize that I have been a classic battered and abused wife,’ she wrote at the time. ‘Throughout our marriage the respondent hit me, struck me, has thrown objects at me, pinched me and verbally abused me.’
In a recent stands up routine, Tom alleged Roseanne once stabbed him with a butcher's knife after he deprived her of Jenny Craig cookies.
At a 2012 Comedy Central Roast, Roseanne slammed her ex, who appeared on the show to roast her, saying ‘Jesus Christ, how many jobs do I have to get for that guy?’ and congratulated him on remarrying, saying, ‘I hope she isn’t with you for your money, I mean my money’.”
