Ilhan Omar Files for Divorce Amid Affair Allegations

According to a report from Minnesota’s WCCO 4, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has filed for a divorce from her husband, Ahmed Hirsi.

The CBS affiliate reports that “Court records confirm that the 37-year-old representative filed for divorce on Friday, from her husband, Ahmed Hirsi.”

‘Irretrievable breakdown of the marriage relationship’

“In the divorce filing,” WCCO continued, “it’s stated that there was an ‘irretrievable breakdown of the marriage relationship.’ Omar is requesting joint legal and physical custody of their three children.”

This news comes in the wake of allegations that Omar had an affair with married political consultant Tim Mynett. Omar’s campaign fund was reportedly paying Mynett’s firm for work, and even funding his travel.

A statement from Omar’s lawyer, Jaime Driggs, reads:

“Ilhan has filed for divorce from her husband Ahmed. As with all marriages, this is intensely personal and a difficult time for their family. For years, Ilhan and Ahmed have been the object of speculation and inuendo from political opponents and the media. This has taken a significant toll on Ilhan, Ahmed, and their three children. 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.”

Affair Accusations

In August, The Political Insider reported that, Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett, a 55-year-old mother living in Washington, DC, had filed for divorce and blamed Rep. Ilhan Omar for her husband’s infidelity and marriage ending. She said her husband made a “declaration of love” for Omar.

“The parties physically separated on or about April 7, 2019, when Defendant told Plaintiff that he was romantically involved with and in love with another woman, Ilhan Omar,” Mrs. Mynett’s document states. She also claimed that her husband and Omar  took the couple’s son out to dinner and showered him with gifts while she was out of town.

“He [Mr. Mynett] and Rep. Omar took the parties’ son to dinner in order to formally meet for the first time at the family’s favorite neighborhood restaurant while Plaintiff was out of town,” the filing read.
