A source told Page Six that Deidre Ball and Scaramucci had fought over his loyalty to Trump
Deidre Ball, the wife of White House’s new communications director Anthony Scaramucci, has reportedly filed for a divorce because she is tired of his “naked ambition”.
A Page Six report has quoted a source saying that Deidre has left him and filed for a divorce.
“She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C. She is tired of his naked ambition, which is so enormous that it left her at her wits’ end. She has left him even though they have two children together.” The source told Page Six.
Scaramucci and Ball are believed to have married in 2014.
Deidre worked as a vice president in investor relations for SkyBridge Capital, a firm Scaramucci founded in 2005 and later sold.
The Source told Page Six that Scaramucci had been “hell bent” on taking up a job at the White House even after he was originally “pegged for a senior role and sold SkyBridge Capital in preparation in January”.
Another source told Page Six that Deidre and Scaramucci had fought over his loyalty to Trump.
“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.” Page Six quoted the source as saying.
