Deirde Ball, the second wife of Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director, has filed for divorce, the New York Post reported Friday.
The second wife of Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director, has filed for divorce, the New York Post reported Friday.
According to multiple sources, 38-year-old Deirde Ball is ending her 3-year marriage with Scaramucci, 52, over his successful quest to get close to President Trump, whom she reportedly despises.
“She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C.,” an unnamed source told the Post. Ball deleted her Twitter account, @MrsAScaramucci, after it was announced her husband would replace the embattles Sean Spicer in the White House.
She and Scaramucci share a house in Manhasset on Long Island, which is also home to Bill O’Reilly and Jose Reyes.
“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,” another source close to Scaramucci said. “I don’t know who Deidre thought she was marrying but anyone who knows Anthony knows he’s an ambitious man.”
Scaramucci, who was spotted Friday not wearing his wedding ring, didn’t deny the story on Twitter Friday night, where he asked the media not to cover his family.
“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,” he said.
According to reports, Scaramucci and Ball married back in 2014. The couple have two children together – Anthony Jr. and AJ.
Scaramucci was previously married to Lisa Miranda Scaramucci, the mother of his daughter Amelia.
