As I mentioned last week, some pretty scandalous allegations that Ilhan Omar and a political consultant of hers have engaged in an extramarital affair broke and everyone went “eww” …including her husband.
Ahmed Hirsi now reportedly wants a divorce from his allegedly double-timing wife.
Can you blame him?
According to the Daily Wire:
A source told The New York Post that Hirsi “is poised to file for divorce after the revelation in a bombshell court filing that she allegedly had an affair with DC political consultant Tim Mynett.”
“The Minnesota congresswoman and her husband allegedly separated in March, and Omar asked Hirsi to divorce her around that time because she didn’t want to file the papers — but Hirsi refused, telling her if she wanted a divorce she should do it herself, said the source, who has known both parties for 20 years,” The New York Post reports. “The husband allegedly changed his mind after Tim Mynett’s wife last week filed bombshell divorce papers claiming her spouse was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative — with Hirsi said to be angry he had been made to look the fool by the allegations of an extramarital affair.”
After The New York Post reported the bombshell allegations against Omar last week that were made in court filings, Omar told a local CBS affiliate that she and her husband were still together and refused to answer further questions.
I figured she was lying. I might have figured wrong. But reports that they were OVER had been around long before:
In July, The Daily Mail reported that Omar was split from Hirsi and that the two were headed for divorce.
“The bust-up comes just as critics are demanding answers as to whether she married her own brother in a successful bid to get him into the United States,” The Daily Mail reported. “Omar has now dumped her current husband Ahmed Hirsi — who she first married in a religious ceremony in 2002 and divorced in 2008 — and moved into a penthouse apartment in one of Minneapolis’s trendiest neighborhoods, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.”
When approached by The Daily Mail and asked about the situation, Hirsi said: “Wow, I can’t comment on that. I’m sorry, I just can’t say anything.”
I’d say I feel bad for him… but he married Ilhan Omar. So no, I don’t.
