Roger Stone's wife, Nydia Bertran, was reportedly attacked by a far-left activist while walking her dog in her neighborhood on Thursday, January 14. The news was first reported by Big League Politics, which said that Bertran was so severely attacked that she would require surgery while in hospital. “Roger Stone’s handicapped wife beaten badly by a deranged leftist man while walking her dog in her own neighborhood, currently in hospital,” the Proud Boys posted on Telegram.
Stone's spokesman, Rev Randy Coggins, confirmed the news about the attack. “It is true that Nydia Stone was attacked by a leftist on a bicycle in front of their home and that she was already convalescing from a very bad dog bite sustained the week before and reported Broward County animal control. This re-opened a gash in her knee which required a visit to the emergency room,” Coggins said.
However, her injuries were not life-threatening and she was back home recovering as she awaited surgery. “Her injury will require surgery but she is home and doing fine and more angry than she is injured. It’s amazing how many hundreds of thousands of people have inquired with their questions and offered their prayers. The Stone family is grateful,” Coggins stated.
Who is Nydia Bertran?
Born on May 8, 1946, in Cuba to a Cuban diplomat father before Fidel Castro came to power, Bertran spent her early years in an affluent part of Cuba where she studied at prestigious schools. However, after Castro's rise to power in 1959, her father decided to migrate to the US with the family. Instead of pursuing further studies, Bertran decided to work instead.
According to the Washington Post, Stone met Bertran in the 1980s while attending a Ronald Reagan presidential campaign where Bertran was taking photos. Even after 30 years of being together, the couple remains smitten with each other. In a 1999 New York Times interview, Stone said that he "never owned a pair of blue jeans until I met my second wife." Bertran and Stone married in Las Vegas in 1992. Stone has a daughter, Adria, and a stepson, Scott Stone.
Were Roger and Nydia swingers?
In 1996, the couple created quite a buzz when it was reported that the pair had placed a racy advertisement in the September issue of 'Local Swing Fever' magazine. Bertran had reportedly paid for the ad with her credit card. It described the couple as "hot, insatiable lady and her handsome body builder husband, experienced swingers, seek similar couples or exceptional muscular single men." In it, Bertran was seen wearing a black negligee and Stone was bare-chested.
Stone denied putting out the ad and claimed that an unnamed "sick, disgruntled" employee, whom he had discharged for substance abuse, had been putting steamy photos of him and his wife on mate-swapping websites for years. The ex-worker had access to his computer and post-office box key. Despite his denial, Stone resigned from his job as a consultant on Senator Bob Dole's campaign for president.
Later in 2008, 'The New Yorker' published an article on Stone titled 'The Dirty Trickster' where Stone reportedly admitted the ads were posted by him and his wife and the reason why he had denied it at the time was his grandparents were still alive.
After Stone was found guilty on seven counts of lying to Congress, obstruction and witness tampering in 2018, she tweeted: "I am so proud of my husband Roger Stone for speaking the truth while his critics lie about him and Donald Trump." In December 2019 last year, she tweeted about "dancing with Trump at my wedding to Roger Stone".
