Does anyone know the outcome of all this? Never saw anything else in the paper, etc.

I just met Duke, and he seems like a nice guy. Will someone please tell me the truth about him, before I make a mistake, and get in too deep?

Diane,assuming you mean the younger duke, I'd read all these posts carefully. If he's about town, he either got out of the charges or served his time. Hate to say where there's smoke there's usually fire. He and his dad both have the rep of hitting women. They start out sweet, then the true colors come out. If you take the chance, you'll find out for yourself. Re-post on here in a couple of months, and let us know how it's going for you. I'll check back occasionally. Good luck.

Thanks, and feel free to check back occassionally. So far, so good, bt I'm very careful. Been through it once years ago, but you never forget the warning signs. Howevere, I don't like to take the word of someone I don't know. Sometimes there is a good man hiding in the strangest of places, sometimes not. Thank you, keep in touch

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.
I love my dad with all my heart and he has NEVER once laid a hand on me or my brother he is a good father and shouldn't be talked about like this sorry about my language but stop talking about my dad

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.
thank you soso much

Well, seems like where there is smoke, there could be fire. Very controlling, verbally abusive, better to get away now. I hope he is a good father. Not so much as a partner in a relationship, which is a separate issue. Keep believing in your father, that is how it should be. I would not want my children to say I'm a bad mother, just because of how my adult relaionships go. I hope he finds true happiness with someone, and continues to be the father that his sons need.

Well, Duke turned out to be a lying, cheating son-of-a bitch. He is also a user. Beware, any one who wants to date him, he has no money, and will expect you to pay for everything, including his bills, his phone, etc. He is such a manipulator. Just know that he doesn't care about anyone, not a woman, not his dad that he lives off of, and not his kids either. You should hear the way he talks about eveyone he's ever been close to

I know just who y'all are talking about. And yes, these men have a long history of using anyone they can, then getting very angry when you stop giving. I'm sure drug abuse had or has a lot to do with it, but older one use to beat his first wife like she was a man, then beg for forgivness, till he got mad again. Guess it runs in the family. His first 2 children loved him very much, but he moved far away leaving them on their own, and I wonder if they are friendly with him today. Sad situation, but women, beware. You won't be special for long, just till you piss them off.

Also, I feel for the son defending his dad. I hope it's true that he was never hit, but what about his mom? Obviously they are not together since it sounds like he goes through lots of women. Does he love her as much as he loves his dad? Maybe she hides the truth from him and his brother.

I came across this and I wanted to set a few things straight... Eryn, you dated Duke for a whole month at the age of 22-23 and I specifically remember you telling me that you decided to break up with him because he started screaming at you for a song you played on the radio. And I hope its not lost on you that as you comment it couldn't possibly be true, that you are commenting on a news article about him being arrested for said violence and that a girl was beat with a motorcycle helmet until it broke into pieces. I do not know how he is not in jail or prison for all the dirt this guy has done, but mark my words, one day, he will go too far and end up killing some innocent woman. I was strangled unconscious by him a few times and knocked completely unconscious once, by him. I hope that other women see this post, this comment and run like hell. He will be so sweet and say hes so sorry. He will spend all his money (if he has a job at the time) buying you gifts to make up for it, but it will happen again and again. And it will get worse. You won't change him. And it is not a mental illness.
As for the boys, I never saw anything more than neglect on his part as he put more time into his guitar and partying than he did into being a dad, but hey, he had 2 kids by the time he was 19 so I guess that's to be expected.
