Unless there’s a possibility of demonic possession or other solvable supernatural explanations, the “why” doesn’t matter.

There is no excuse for any of this.

If you really need a “why”, it’s because thus far he’s been able to do all of it with no consequences to his actions. He says “I can’t wait to leave you” and other vile nonsense and then you keep taking care of him. He knows this is what you’ll do.

In fact, it’s common for people in abusive relationships to work even harder to keep their abusers happy. I would bet decent money that this plays directly into it. He’s mean to you in order for you to work harder to get his affection back.
