Anthony Scaramucci's Wife Files For Divorce

Posted: Jul 28, 2017 6:45 PM

Page Six is reporting that Deidre Ball, Anthony Scaramucci's wife, has filed for divorce, and that sources close to the couple blame it on politics.

Ball, who works as Vice President of Investor Relations at SkyBridge Capital, "despises" Trump and didn't support her husband's efforts to work with the administration.

One source told Page Six, “Deidre has left him and has filed for 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 friend added, “Anthony is focusing on his children, his work for the president and the American people. There is nothing more important to him.

“I don’t know who Deidre thought she was marrying but anyone who knows Anthony knows he’s an ambitious man.”

Scaramucci was scheduled to appear as a headliner at Politicon this weekend in Los Angeles, but Axios reports that he's pulled out of the appearance - and that the decision was made before his comments to Ryan Lizza were published in the New Yorker.
