The Daily Caller is reporting that the wife of the White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci, just filed for divorce.

Scaramucci and his wife, Deidre Ball, have been married since 2014 and have two children together. Ball, 38, worked with Scaramucci as the VP of investor relations at his former company SkyBridge Capital.

A source told PageSix she is divorcing him because she doesn’t like his unmasked political ambition. Their lives have changed radically since Scaramucci’s appointment, and apparently, she isn’t happy.

“She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C.,” said a source. “She is tired of his naked ambition, which is so enormous that it left her at her wits’ end. She has left him even though they have two children together.”

The same source adds that Ball should have known that she was marrying an ambitious man before she even walked down the aisle.

“I don’t know who Deidre thought she was marrying but anyone who knows Anthony knows he’s an ambitious man.”

Apparently, the couple also disagreed over President Trump. According to another source, Ball is not a fan of the president or his policies, so she did not want her husband in his administration.

These divorce rumors come after Scaramucci’s expletive-ridden conversation with a New York Magazine writer was published. Scaramucci tweeted a response to the conversation.

On Friday, Scaramucci also indirectly referenced the divorce rumors in a tweet, asking people to leave "civilians" out of it and to pray for his family.
