Black Flag's Greg Ginn Accused of Child Abuse

(Radio.com) In an affidavit filed by his ex-wife, Black Flag co-founder Greg Ginn has been accused of child abuse. Marina Ginn, who filed the affidavit (via Consequence of Sound) on Oct. 10, details how her ex-husband's "behavior has recently grown increasingly erratic."

"He is routinely denying them food and threatening them, that he is increasingly abusing alcohol and drugs in front of them, and that they have witnessed confrontations and physical violence at the building where they live" -which doubles as his band's rehearsal space - she claims.

The details don't stop there. Marina also goes on to claim that Greg puts his children to manual work sometimes until 2 a.m., while deprived of food, which has made them feel like they're going to pass out of hunger - at which point Greg yells at them, "quit being lazy." When he does feed them, she says it's reportedly often just lettuce with vinegar, which makes them throw up, or vegetable soup with strong spices - presumably because he wants to control their weight.

She also claimed he tells his 10- and 7-year-old daughters both that they are getting fat and need to lose weight and "you're hot" and whistles at them. Read more here.
