When responding to a fan that asked if he could get his former Lost co-star Matthew Fox on Twitter, Dominic Monaghan tweeted to his masses of followers that the 45-year-old actor - best known for portraying Jack Shephard on the NBC series from 2004 to 2010 - is a habitual woman beater. Pretty much in those words, too.

Additionally, he clarified: "he beats women.not isolated incidents.often.not interested."

Whoa. This isn't the first we've heard about despicable behavior from Fox - in addition to rumors that he's cheated on his wife, earlier this year he was arrested for a DUI, and in 2011 he was arrested for punching a female bus driver in the breast and groin - but it's definitely the first time we've heard that he "often" beats women. Serious accusations, but Monaghan seems to be standing by them: Later, in response to tweets suggesting that Fox could sue for defamation, Monaghan tweeted, "it's very difficult to sue someone for speaking the truth." 

There's been no response from Fox or his rep yet, but with accusations like this, it's most likely only a matter of time. What do you think of Monaghan's claims?
