Radha Hirsch Husband
Radha was married to Doc Antle (born; Kevin Antle) The two got married when Radha was 15 years old and Doc Antle was 26 years old. The two married without Radha’s parent’s consent. Astroff had been spending many weekends at Doc Antle’s house since her mother was often away and she became Doc’s and his then-wife Betsy Rogers’ babysitter.
At the age of 14 Radha began a romantic relationship with Doc “I was 14 the first time anything romantic happened,’ she alleged. ‘He told me that it was one of his specialties, but the first time was a bit underwhelming. After we were together, he said: ‘If it’s not okay with you, you know I can make you forget’.
I was 14 and he was 25. My mum was wanting me to realize how inappropriate the situation was and I remember him saying, ‘don’t worry, we’re going to work it out, we’re going to be together’”.’
After Radha’s mother found out that the two were involved romantically, she flew Radha out of Virginia and enrolled her in a catholic school. Radha would tell Antle in detail her route to and from school, and one day he showed up and she ran away with him.
‘In my mind, I ran away yes, but I wasn’t thinking that it was really an abduction. was all too happy to jump in that car and run away with him.
He put me in a hotel on the outskirts of DC. I was living in an Econo Lodge by myself for at least a month.’
Radha eventually contacted her mother to let her know she was alright. The moment she told Doc he allegedly cut her hair and disguised her and she changed her name to Chantal Rivera and moved to live in his zoo in Virginia.
A month later the two got married, they forged Radha’s father’s signature as she was still underage and couldn’t be allowed to get married without a parent’s consent.
‘We forged my father’s signature on the marriage license because you’re not allowed to get married at 15 without one of your parent’s consent.’
Their marriage was however short-lived as Doc confided in her that he was attracted to her when she was younger since she was 11 which she said creeped her out and she soon began to master a getaway.
