He is behind 4 years on a 50 amonth joke support. he looked at my daughter at night when she would sleep almost with no pjs on and its ok????? he hit,kicked,punched,slapped,and beat with belts and its ok?????

I used to date this man a long time ago. He hit me too. I regret never pressing charges on him. It would seem to me that his attacks on women are getting worse and I'm not really sure why hes not in prison. I hope his girlfriend has the brains to press charges and leave because he will NEVER change.
he always said i was the only one he hit and it was my fault. after i found him in my house with a 52 year old crack whore and he beat me with his motorcycle helmet till it broke then tried to run me down on his bike...well i hate to say it im still heatbroke

Emily.... I know that you love and care for him. I did too, but girl, I promise you... he was like that ten years ago and he will be like that ten years from now. He has two kids, with two different women and he used to hit them too. He cheated on me as well, on mulitple occasions. I wasted a year and a half of my life with this loser. DON'T make the same mistake. RUN!!!!

Can we really believe all this?
I'm not saying these things didn't happen, but I know when women are heartbroken, they tend to LIE about the man to make him out to be some bad guy....that he may not be.

Sorry to take so long to answer-checked this several times w/no response...believe me, I wish them no trouble, I am Duke Sr's closest relative other than his older brother. Sr and Jr have stayed in my home, but haven't heard from them since they left yrs ago.(Long story) Came across this art. on the web & was concerned. Would say more but then, who are you? Wouldn't want to say the wrong thing to the wrong person, just hope all is okay.

Emily, I'm sorry that happened to you. I 'loved' an abusive guy once, put up with it too long until I realized I didn't deserve it and didn't have to. They bring their troubles onto themselves, like dual personalities, kind, loving, wonderful one day, then the next, well, you know. I found a good man, been together many yrs in a peaceful, happy relationship. Hope the same for you.

im glad that you found someone who respects you and the same, im sorry for what you had to go through to find that. as for me in my situation, well...i wish i didnt miss him so much. wish i didnt want to see him so bad. maybe in time it will get better, but sadly, i dont belive i will ever be over it. i just wanted to be with him. and now i cant so i wish i could forget him. im so sorry for all of this. not that i blame myself, if it wasnt me it would have been some other poor girl, but i played a part, couldnt stop it and for that i am truly sorry.

I looked on My Space and found a profile there of his. Don't know how old it is, but there was a girl in the pics, too. Wonder if she's one that's 'already been' or one that 'hasn't been' there yet...Do you know anything about his Dad, Duke Sr? Last I knew he was still in Monroe where his first 2 kids and their families live, but that was almost 10 yrs ago.

I am glad I decided to check back at this post for responses. we are all still feeling sorry for these "poor girls"
It is funny that these "poor girls" never responded to my post about the fact that the story seems a little fabricated.
As someone who knows both Duke's and the family, I would have to say that I know Duke Jr well enough to know that the truth was stretched out pretty far.
When in a relationship that isn't working, two people can easily bring out the worst in eachother...but his worst couldn't be anything as bad as what was conveyed in this article.

Yes, you're right. There's always 2 sides to every story. I don't know what was claimed to have happened, by the time I saw this, the article wasn't complete, just that little bit on top, and what the other posts had to say. Last time I saw Jr. he was only about 13, just a boy. Never knew if Sr. stayed in LA, ever remarried, or what. Hope he's in good health, know he loved Jr. very much.

Uh seriously girl from danville CA... you must be one of dukes hayward buddies, being his ex, I can assure you that Emily's story rings true, since I have been through this with duke myself... he cheated on me several times, punched, slapped and choked me unconcious at one point and knocked me out before. I never had the brains to press charges on him and its one of my biggest regrets. Duke is a woman beating piece of shit, just like his piece of shit daddy. I can only hope that his two sons don't end up anything like their loser convict of a father and I can only hope that some day some one stands up to him and presses charges and that they stick. I want to see him in prison... dead would be nice, but I'll settle for prison... Emily, I hope you have managed to stay away from him since this happened, because if you haven't, I'm sure you've been assaulted again since this incident. And if you have stayed away, good for you. Fuck him.

I dated Duke (Anthony) when I was younger (13-14) and again years later (22-23). I watched him go through some dark things, but he never laid a hand on me. And I never saw him lay a hand on his boys either. The man you all describe is not the Anthony that I know.
