Rep. Ilhan Omar Files For Divorce From Husband, Cites “Irretrievable Breakdown of the Relationship”
Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is a groundbreaking force in politics, and has endured her fair share of controversy since entering the U.S. House of Representatives. As previously reported, she recently filed for divorce from her husband Ahmed Hirsi.
The Somalian Rep. Ilhan is one of the political figures that Donald Trump controversially told to
“go back to where they came from.”
In addition to this being in the news, she has battled rumors of cheating on her husband with another married political adviser. Her official reasons for ending her marriage are as followed:
“…[an] irretrievable breakdown of the marriage relationship.”
A source continued:
“As with all marriages, this is intensely personal and a difficult time for their family. Just like any other family navigating this kind of transition, Ilhan wishes to have their privacy respected for themselves and their children and will not be commenting any further.”
Court records for Rep. Ilhan Omar’s and Ahmed Hirsi’s first hearing is scheduled for Oct. 29th. They are pursuing joint custody of their three children.
