Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-Minn.) now ex-husband suspected she was having an affair long before the rumors were public, and made a surprise visit to her Washington, D.C., apartment last year to find the congresswoman and her lover in their pajamas according to a new report.
The Daily Mail published an exclusive story on Friday revealing that Omar's ex-husband, Ahmed Hirsi, believed she was cheating on him with her head fundraiser, Tim Mynett.
"[Hirsi] suspected she was cheating but she kept telling him he was paranoid," one source told the outlet.
Neither he nor Omar have spoken publicly about the reason for their split, and The Daily Mail further reported that Omar agreed to pay Hirsi as much as $250,000 over the course of six years to stay quiet about the matter.
Omar's rumored infidelity became public when Mynett's now ex-wife, Beth Mynett, filed for divorce in August citing her husband's affair with Omar as the reason for the demise of their marriage.
