Ilhan Omar’s Husband Reportedly Demanding A Divorce Following Affair Allegations


Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is reaping what she has sowed in numerous scandals centering around alleged immigration fraud, accusations of campaign finance violations and an alleged affair with Democrat strategist Tim Mynett.

Prior to speculation about the affair with Mynett becoming widespread after the two were spotted holding hands at an Italian restaurant in California and Mynett’s soon-to-be-ex wife named Ilhan Omar as the other woman in the divorce filing, Omar was rumored to be splitting up from her second husband Ahmed Hirsi for the second time.

However, talk was that Omar’s husband didn’t want to file the divorce after Omar requested it at that time.

Now, it seems that Hirsi has changed his mind.

Allegedly out of anger for being made to look like a fool with the Omar-Mynett affair accusations, Hirsi is now demanding the divorce!

The New York Post has more to say about the whole scandal and Hirsi's call for divorce:

Rep. Ilhan Omar’s marriage appears to be headed for the rocks, a longtime friend of the couple told The Post.

The congresswoman’s husband, Ahmed Hirsi, the source said, is poised to file for divorce after the revelation in a bombshell court filing that she allegedly had an affair with DC political consultant Tim Mynett.

The Minnesota congresswoman and her husband allegedly separated in March, and Omar asked Hirsi to divorce her around that time because she didn’t want to file the papers — but Hirsi refused, telling her if she wanted a divorce she should do it herself, said the source, who has known both parties for 20 years.

The husband allegedly changed his mind after Tim Mynett’s wife last week filed bombshell divorce papers claiming her spouse was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative — with Hirsi said to be angry he had been made to look the fool by the allegations of an extramarital affair.

“I’m surprised he hasn’t filed already,” the source told The Post, adding that Hirsi was “very confused” in the wake of the bombshell allegations but still loved his wife and was reluctant to expose their three children to a public divorce battle.

The freshman congresswoman, 37, insisted she and Hirsi, 39, were still together and denied the charge she was dating Mynett in an interview with CBS affiliate WCCO on the day of the Aug. 27 report.

But the pair have been living apart since March — around the same time she was spotted having dinner with Mynett at a California restaurant — with Omar moving into a luxury condo in downtown Minneapolis and their split an “open secret” in town, the source said.

The family home they shared in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood — nicknamed “Little Mogadishu” for its large Somali population — appears to be abandoned, with the curtains drawn and cobwebs growing over the front porch when a Post reporter visited last week.

Hirsi, a senior policy aide to a Minneapolis city councilwoman, is reportedly bouncing between friends’ houses and stays at the luxury condo when Omar isn’t in town, with the kids also spending time with a grandfather, the source said.

Omar and Hirsi were first engaged in 2002. But the duo never legally married; instead, they wed in a traditional Muslim ceremony and had two children before splitting up in 2008, Omar has said.

The Blaze added:

The husband of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is reportedly demanding a divorce after a bombshell report that she had been having an affair with a political consultant working with her campaign.

The 37-year-old freshman member of Congress has publicly denied the claims that she had an affair with Tim Mynett.

But according to a source that is speaking to the New York Post, her 39-year-old husband Ahmed Hirsi is asking for a divorce after first rejecting Omar's insistence that he file first.

The claims came from a divorce filing by Washington, D.C.-based physician Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett. She says that her husband, Tim Mynett, told her in April that he was having an affair with Omar.
