Man who allegedly held wife as sex slave and forced her to have an abortion, being sued.

A Gold Coast woman who alleges her ex-husband sexually assaulted her, forced her to parade around their homes naked and in heels, sleep on the floor next to their bed at night and address him as “master” took the stand this morning and testified about the romantic early days of their relationship.

Kimberly O’Brien is suing her ex-husband, Kevin Anderson, a Wisconsin businessman, for civil damages in federal court, alleging sexual assault, battery, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress. She claims he sexually assaulted her on their honeymoon and forced her to have an abortion before they were married.

O’Brien’s lawsuit alleges sexual assault, battery, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress, claiming that Anderson also forced her to abort their child before he would agree to marry her. The couple lived a life of privilege — staying at the Four Seasons and Ritz-Carlton and jetting off to Switzerland and Italy — but Anderson allegedly forced O’Brien to parade around their homes naked and in heels, sleep on the floor next to their bed at night and address him as “master.”

“It was the biggest mistake of my life ever being with this man,” she testified at the Dirksen federal courthouse in Chicago.

The sexual assault allegedly occurred in 2005 while they were on their California honeymoon. Anderson allegedly stunned O’Brien with a blow to the head, tied her up, sexually assaulted her, took photographs — which are expected to be shown at trial — and left her bound overnight.

“You will never tell anyone about this and if you are a good slave this will never happen again,” he allegedly whispered in her ear the next morning, O’Brien’s attorney, Dean Dickie, said in his opening remarks Tuesday.

The alleged assault was never reported to police because O’Brien was “embarrassed, humiliated and fearful,” Dickie said.

Anderson, who is expected to take the witness stand later, tells a very different story. He denies there was any sexual abuse and said any sadomasochistic sex was consensual and that any injuries O’Brien received were part of the risk she assumed in agreeing to that type of activity.

“It’s a story for the tabloids — sex, abuse, deceit — and none of it happened,” his attorney Charles Cole said in his opening remarks.

“This is a case largely driven by revenge and greed,” he said. An affidavit filed as part of the case says O’Brien was seeking $10 million. The couple had a “safe word” — red — that O’Brien never used, Cole said.

Cole placed a blown-up photo of O’Brien posing naked on the hotel balcony the morning after the alleged sexual assault and used a laser pointer to show the apparent lack of any injuries.

“Here’s a very naked Kimberly O’Brien showing you no such thing,” Cole told jurors as O’Brien, seated at the plaintiff’s table, looked the other way.

He said it was O’Brien who introduced Anderson to the world of sadomasochistic sex play and who proposed being hogtied and engaging in sexual activity on their honeymoon. “She said, ‘This is our last night here — let’s go big,'” Cole said. “She put on the blindfold herself.”
