Scaramucci’s Wife Filed for Divorce, Hates Trump

On Friday, Page Six reported that Deidre Ball filed for divorce from White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

Multiple sources tell Page Six that Ball is tired of dealing with Scaramucci’s “naked political ambition.” Her personal distaste for the unpopular president was fuel on the fire. Ball reportedly deleted her Twitter account @MrsAScaramucci after her husband took the job in Trump’s White House.

A source told Page Six, “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.” It’s not immediately clear whether Ball filed for divorce after Scaramucci accepted the new White House job or while he was still trying to break into Trump’s circle.

Ball previously worked as a vice president in investor relations for SkyBridge Capital, which was founded by her husband in 2005. According to Page Six, the pair is believed to have begun dating in 2011 and married in 2014.

Scaramucci has responded on Twitter to the stories about his impending divorce, saying, "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.”
