Rep Ilhan Omar files for divorce from Husband

U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar has filed for divorce from her husband, citing an “irretrievable breakdown” of her marriage, US media has reported.

Ihlan filed for divorce from Ahmed Hirsi in Minnesota’s Hennepin County District Court.

Omar who is on a tour to Burkina Faso did not elaborate on what caused the marriage to break down.

Omar’s attorney, Jaime Driggs, issued a statement Monday saying: “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 innuendo from political opponents and the media.”

Driggs said this has taken a toll on the family, and that Omar wished for privacy and would have no further comment.

Omar has been dogged by questions about her personal life since she first ran for state representative in 2016.

Ilhan and Hirsi have three children together.

Omar who lived in Dadaab refugee camp before immigrating to US and joined politics in Minnesota before her overwhelming election as first Muslim elected into US congress.

She was sworn in January this year.
