Anthony Scaramucci’s Wife Reportedly Files For Divorce (UPDATE)
Deidre Ball, the wife of new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, has reportedly filed for divorce.
According to the New York Post, Ball was fed up with Scaramucci’s “naked political ambition,” several sources told the paper. And as a result, she has filed for divorce after three years of marriage.
Ball, apparently, is at odds with Scaramucci as it relates to President Donald Trump. The Post article says that Scaramucci was on a “ruthless quest” to get close to Trump. The report claims that Ball “despises” Trump.
“Deidre is not a fan of Trump, and she hasn’t exactly been on board and supportive of Anthony and his push to get back into the White House,” a source told the Post
Scaramucci has absolutely dominated the news during his first week as White House Communications director. On Wednesday, Scaramucci fired off a Tweet seemingly accusing White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus of leaking Scaramucci’s financial disclosure forms. The next day, he trashed Priebus and White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon in a wild interview with The New Yorker.
Per the Post’s article, a spokesperson for the President’s spokesperson declined to comment.
UPDATE 5:33 p.m. ET: Scaramucci addressed the matter on Twitter.
Leave civilians out of this. I can take the hits, but I would ask that you would put my family in your thoughts and prayers & nothing more.
