It seems we hear so often about male musicians/celebrities being physically abusive to their spouses/significant others. Examples that come to mind are Tommy Lee and Till Lindemann from Rammstein.
I can’t imagine Billy ever raising his hand to a woman, but has anyone heard anything to the contrary? One of the reasons I’ve always liked the Pumpkins is because the band members (now and then) seem to be basically decent people. If a wild scandal ever erupted around Billy or the band I would be stunned.
