A lawyer representing the estranged wife of ousted White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci is denying that the couple is ending their marriage because of President Trump.

“I don’t know where that came from, but it is not accurate. It is a false fact,” divorce lawyer Jill Stone, who represents Deidre Ball, told People magazine on Monday.


The New York Post first broke the news that Ball, Scaramucci’s wife of three years, had filed for divorce days after he accepted his administration position.

Ball “is not a fan of Trump,” a source told the paper in its Friday story, “and she hasn’t exactly been on board and supportive of Anthony and his push to get back into the White House.” 

The former hedge fund manager tweeted at the time:

Scaramucci was canned from his job as communications director on Monday, after less than two weeks on the job.
