Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has filed for divorce from her husband, Ahmed Hirsi.
A rep for Omar spoke to TMZ, “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.”
In the divorce decree, Omar, 37, put “irretrievable breakdown of the marriage relationship,” and she is asking for joint custody of her three children with Hirsi, who is 39.
Omar adds that she wants the court to decide on child support, but hasn’t mentioned who in the marriage should receive it. She has already moved out of the home they shared together.
