Adrienne Maloof’s ex Paul Nassif is defending his good name against some nasty accusations made by the couple’s former chef.
 
TMZ reports that Paul is suing Bernie Guzman for blackmail and extortion, claiming that the chef hurled false accusation of physical abuse in his marriage to Adrienne Maloof.

Bernie allegedly posted photos of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills with bruises and called Paul “a beast” for hitting his ex-wife. When the noted plastic surgeon sent his lawyers after Bernie, he received a text saying, “Stop harassing me...Have you forgotten I witnessed you beat your wife... Kids & animals. I have plenty of pretty family photos... Some not so pretty... Stay away.”

Paul denies the claims, calling them “outrageous and vicious lies.”
