David Petraeus’ wife threatens him with divorce
Washington: Former CIA Director General David Petraeus’ wife of 38 years has threatened him with divorce after she was left ‘humiliated’ by his affair with his biographer.
Holly Petraeus is reportedly ‘furious’ about the affair, which forced her husband to resign from the CIA ten days ago, and is demanding to know how many other women he has shared trysts with throughout their marriage.
“She can`t turn on a television, go online or open a newspaper without being bombarded by the latest revelations about his cheating,” a source said, adding: “No wonder she’s angry”.
“David has been falling all over himself, apologising and begging Holly to forgive him, but she isn`t listening. After all his lies, she doesn`t believe anything he says anymore, and she`s thinking about consulting a divorce attorney,” the source added.
According to the Daily Mail, the source said that Holly has suspicions that her husband had an affair with Jill Kelley, the Florida socialite who sparked his downfall after tipping off the FBI about threatening emails from Petraeus’ lover Paula Broadwell.
While Petraeus has denied he had an affair with Kelley, Holly is uncertain and keeps demanding to know how many other women he has cheated on her with, the source said.
Kelley has also denied any wrongdoing and said in a statement she was simply a friend of Petraeus, whom she met through her work at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.
The Petraeus and his wife have been married 38 years after meeting on a blind date when he was a student at the military academy at West Point, where Holly’s father was the superintendent, it added.
