Things just went from bad to worse for Ilhan Omar. Omar has been under near-constant fire after her hometown paper, The Star Tribune, became the first mainstream media source to run the story surrounding her controversial marriages.
It has been alleged she married her brother to help with immigration issues, although no hard proof has been furnished to back up those claims.
There does exist plenty of circumstantial evidence and plenty of mystery surrounding her two marriages.
We also know she admitted to some minor campaign finance violations and now to add more intrigue comes the shocking report that she has split from her second husband.
From The Daily Mail:
Leftist congresswoman Ilhan Omar and her husband – the father of her three children – have split and are heading for their second divorce, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.
The bust-up comes just as critics are demanding answers as to whether she married her own brother in a successful bid to get him into the United States.
Omar has now dumped her current husband Ahmed Hirsi – who she first married in a religious ceremony in 2002 and divorced in 2008 – and moved into a penthouse apartment in one of Minneapolis’s trendiest neighborhoods, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.
‘Wow,’ said Hirsi, when approached about the split by DailyMail.com outside the complex. ‘I can’t comment on that.
‘I’m sorry, I just can’t say anything,’ he added before driving off in his BMW car.
Omar did not return calls requesting comment from DailyMail.com by deadline.
Hirsi, 39, had been seen leaving the $2,860-a-month home alone at 7:45am and returning to drop off his mother and his younger daughter nearly three hours later.
‘He only goes there when Ilhan is in DC,’ one family friend told DailyMail.com. ‘When she’s in Minneapolis he sleeps at his house.’
Hirsi was noticeably absent when Omar returned to a hero’s welcome at Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport last week after being attacked by President Donald Trump.
At the time, he was sitting morosely in a Starbucks coffee shop close to the now-overgrown home that he and Omar shared during their marriage, sources tell DailyMail.com.
