There are a wide range of reports breaking on Friday that all indicate that Anthony Scaramucci and his wife are parting ways.
According to the reports, the White House communication director’s wife has filed for divorce just days after Scaramucci took on his new role in President Donald Trump’s administration.
Married for just 3 years, Deidre Ball (38) was fed up with Scaramucci’s “naked ambition to get close to Trump, which is so enormous that it left her at her wits’ end,” a source told the Post in a Friday story.
Scaramucci and Ball, who once worked as vice president in investor relations at her husband’s former hedge fund, have reportedly been married for three years and have two children.
“Deidre is not a fan of Trump,” a source told the paper, “and she hasn’t exactly been on board and supportive of Anthony and his push to get back into the White House.”
The source said that Scaramucci had been “hell-bent” on claiming his position at the White House after he was originally pegged for a senior role and sold SkyBridge Capital in preparation in January.
According to Page Six, a source told the NY Post that “Deidre has left him and has filed for divorce. She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C…. She has left him even though they have two children together.”
Ball has donated thousands to political candidates on both sides of the aisle, including Rep. Kathleen Rice’s (D-N.Y.) House bid and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) presidential campaign last year.
Scaramucci, 53, has dominated headlines in the week since joining Trump’s White House.
On Thursday, The New Yorker ran an explosive, expletive-ridden interview with Scaramucci in which he called White House chief of staff Reince Priebus “a f—ing paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” and used vulgar terms to describe White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon.
DML has reached out to the White House for confirmation, we have not received a reply.
In response to the announcement about the divorce filing, Scaramucci tweeted Friday afternoon, “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.”
