The news that Anthony Scaramucci’s wife has filed for divorce came as a bolt from blue. When she filed for divorce, Anthony Scaramucci’s wife, Deidre Ball Scaramucci, was nine months pregnant and set to deliver the child within days.
So what really caused the split between two. There is no denying the fact that Anthony Scaramucci is a very ambitious man and has never tried to hide his political ambitions. His closeness with President Donald Trump has never been in doubt, though not many people thought that he will go to the extent of sacrificing his wife for a post in Trump administration.
The 53-year old Anthony Scaramucci also known as “the Mooch” was named to serve as the White House Communications Director last week. Scaramucci who began his career in finance at Goldman Sachs, where he worked from 1989 to 1996 and held positions in its Investment Banking, Equities, and Private Wealth Management divisions went on to launch Oscar Capital Management with his colleague Andrew Boszhardt. Later he founded global investment firm SkyBridge Capital. He sold off the company earlier this year, allegedly with the sole aim of joining Trump administration.
Merely days after filing for divorce, 38-year old Deidre Ball Scaramucci gave birth to a son named James on Monday, the second child of the couple together, while the new White House Communications Director was in West Virginia accompanying President Trump to the Boy Scouts Jamboree. Jill Stone, Deidre Ball’s lawyer, confirmed the news in a Saturday interview in which she shot down reports that the split was due to her husband’s naked political ambition and infatuation with Trump.
Deidre Ball is second wife of Scaramucci. His first wife was 54-year old Lisa Miranda. The two were married for 26 years. Miranda too is not a fan of Trump. On November 9, 2016, she wrote, “Susan B. Anthony could only dream of a day she could vote for a woman president; and although today there is so much to be thankful for… there still is so much more to do… this was a complicated election fueled mostly by hate… Congratulations to those who chose to support Donald Trump; I sincerely hope that he proves to be all u hoped for…As for the Hillary supporters … Like, Susan B. Anthony, she may not ever see her dream of a presidency unfold but she will go down in history as a great force that paved the way for the woman that will! What seems like a set-back is just a set-up for a future of true equality… may young women of our country be inspired and never take for granted the fight that gave the right to vote! Now onto unity!…..”
Anthony Scaramucci has three children with Lisa Miranda: Anthony Jr., AJ, and Amelia. He has two sons with Deidre, including the newborn. They got married in 1988 and divorced in the year 2014.
