It all started with Anthony’s marriage to actress Patronella Barker. Two months after they tied the knot, the marriage was in a shaky state. This heightened when Barker became pregnant and had Abigail.
Anthony was displeased by this and he turned to heavy drinking. This further increased the animosity in his family. Once speaking about his relationship with Abigail, Anthony noted that he knew nothing about her personal life, and hasn’t cared much to find out.
