MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar has filed for divorce from her husband, citing an "irretrievable breakdown" of her marriage.
The freshman Democrat filed for divorce from Ahmed Hirsi on Friday in Minnesota's Hennepin County District Court. Omar and Hirsi have been legally married since 2018 but have been together for years.
The petition, which Omar signed Friday while in Burkina Faso, does not elaborate on what caused the marriage to break down. It comes more than a month after a Washington, D.C., woman accused Omar of having an affair with her husband.
