Anthony Cumia of “Opie and Anthony” radio fame is being rocked by abuse allegations after hs girlfriend, Dani Golightly (real name Danielle Brand) posted a video detailing physical harm. However, the online infamy cuts both ways, as Golightly’s Reddit posts detailing her love of the easy life are also making the rounds.
In Golightly’s video, which accompanies this article, she accuses shock jock Cumia of breaking her hand and preventing her from calling the police. Page Six says that just four months ago, the tearful woman was bragging on Reddit about her lifestyle at Cumia’s Long Island home. The posts have since been deleted, but the account was confirmed as hers. In it, she said:
“I talk like a baby, I get money. I make stupid jokes that aren’t funny, I get money. I wake up in a huge, gorgeous, house, lay by the pool all day, don’t have to work, don’t have to pay for anything, go to Hawaii for free…I get money. Life is hard! I can deal with my boyfriend going on dates with other girls because in the end, I’m begged back and…I get money.”
As noted in the post, she was aware that Cumia was seeing other women but didn’t let it phase her, as long as he continued to pamper her.
The abusive side of the relationship came to light when Golightly live streamed her domestic violence claims on Periscope while nursing a broken hand. She started the video with:
“Hi, I’m in Long Island, I got my hand broken, I’m waiting for police to come … I tried to call the police, but (Cumia) turned the phone off.”
It was quite a change in tone, and it looks like she’s finally realized the seriousness of her situation. Cumia was subsequently arrested and faces a court date in January.
Women put up with domestic violence for a variety of reasons, ranging from enjoying the lifestyle provided by their abusers to thinking that things will get better to fearing for their lives if they dare to flee.
