In a series of blunt posts on his Twitter feed, "Lost" star Dominic Monaghan is accusing his onetime co-star Matthew Fox of beating women.

Monaghan was in the midst of a fan Q&A on Twitter earlier this week when a user going by the screen name Becca wrote, "holla at matthew fox and tell him to get a twitter i beg of you." Monaghan's reply: "he beats women. No thanks."
Becca and Monaghan continued their conversation -- Becca wanted to know "what about all those good times you had together?" to which Monaghan replied, "how do you know we ever did? you don't know either of us. he beats women. not isolate incidents. often. not interested."
Monaghan went on to defend himself against those saying he was making false accusations.
TODAY.com reached out to Fox's manager and attorney for comment, but they have yet to respond.
Fox and Monaghan worked closely together on "Lost" from the series' beginning in 2004. While Monaghan's character Charlie was killed off in the season three finale in 2007, he returned for a number of episodes before the show ended its run in 2010. In a case of art apparently imitating life, Charlie and Fox's character Jack were often at odds with each other.
While "Lost" was on the air, personal conflicts between Monaghan and Fox, if there were any, were never publicized. That said, Fox is no stranger to off-screen controversy. In 2010, a stripper told In Touch magazine that the married actor had an affair with her (which he later denied); in 2011 Fox was charged with assault after allegedly punching a female bus driver in the breasts and groin; and just recently, Fox was arrested for allegedly driving while intoxicated.
