Deidre Ball, the wife of Anthony Scaramucci, has filed for divorce.
According to the report from Page Six, Ball decided to file for divorce from Scaramucci because of his “naked political ambition.”
Ball is a vice president for SkyBridge Capital, an investor relation firm that Scaramucci founded in 2005 and then sold to take a job at White House.
Ball and Scaramucci, known as “The Mooch” were married for three years, after starting to date in 2011, and getting married in 2014. The report indicates that Ball was ‘fed up with his ruthless quest to get close to President Trump’ whom she despises.

The source said that the Wall Street financier, 52, had been “hell-bent” on claiming his position at the White House after he was originally pegged for a senior role and sold SkyBridge Capital in preparation in January. He was blocked by Reince Priebus, Trump’s chief of staff. But, after an aggressive campaign, Scaramucci was made communications director on July 21 by Trump, prompting Sean Spicer to quit.
A second source close to Scaramucci — who has alternately not been wearing his wedding ring, or has been sporting it on his right hand — said the former couple had fought over his loyalty to Trump. This was his second marriage and Ball was noticeably not present at his recent SALT conference in mid-May.
The source said, “Deidre is not a fan of Trump, and she hasn’t exactly been on board and supportive of Anthony and his push to get back into the White House.”
Furthermore, the report indicates that Ball, who graduated from the University Of Buffalo, donated $5,400 to the congressional campaign of anti-Trump Democrat Kathleen Rice in 2015.
Ball’s divorce filing comes as Scaramucci faces controversy over comments he made to The New Yorker.
