Fox News Host Bill O'Reilly Loses Custody Of Children

Last week in a unanimous court ruling, longtime Fox News personality Bill O'Reilly lost custody of his two teenage children.

A New York appeals court affirmed another court's decision last year that O'Reilly's 13- and 17-year-old kids would live full-time with their mother, O'Reilly's ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy.

In the court's Feb. 24 opinion, the justices wrote, "Particularly relevant in this case are the clearly stated preferences of the children, especially considering their age and maturity, and the quality of the home environment provided by the mother."

O'Reilly and McPhilmy have been separated since 2011 and reportedly have been battling over custody for just as long.
