“Lost” star Dominic Monagan caused a stir when he publicly declared that his former co-star Matthew Fox “beats women.”

The firestorm began when a “Lost” fan asked Monaghan  to help get his former co-star on Twitter. His not-so-subtle reply? “He beats women. No thanks.”

The woman then responded, “WHAT ABOUT ALL THOSE GOOD TIMES YOU HAD TOGETHER?!”

Monaghan responded, “How do you know we ever did? You don’t know either of us. he beats women. not isolated incidents. often. not interested.”

Last year, Fox was accused of punching a Cleveland party-bus driver in the breasts and groin after she refused to take him back to the hotel. No charges were filed and Fox countersued the woman for defamation. Earlier this year, he was arrested for DUI.

According to a report from TMZ, Fox was shocked at Monaghan’s outburst. The two have not spoken in years and sources say the two never had any issues with each other prior to Monaghan’s statements.
