Ilhan Omar's Husband Wants Divorce from 'Homewrecker' Wife After Affair Bombshell
Ahmed Hirsi prepares to file for divorce from radical Democrat congresswoman
The husband of far-left Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ahmed Hirsi, is reportedly seeking to file for divorce over allegations that his "homewrecker" wife had an affair with political consultant Tim Mynett.
Allegations of the affair came out against Omar last week in divorce filings, in which Mynett's wife, Dr. Beth Mynett, accused her husband of having an extramarital romantic relationship with the Minnesota congresswoman.
A source told The New York Post that Hirsi "is poised to file for divorce after the revelation in a bombshell court filing that she allegedly had an affair with DC political consultant Tim Mynett."
The controversial lawmaker allegedly separated from her husband in March, and Omar asked Hirsi to file for divorce around that time because she didn’t want to submit the papers.
Hirsi initially refused but allegedly changed his mind after Tim Mynett’s wife filed divorce papers claiming her spouse was cheating on her with the Somali-born US lawmaker.
Hirsi is said to be angry for being made to look the fool after learning of the allegations of an extramarital affair in the news.
“I’m surprised he hasn’t filed already,” the source told The Post, adding that Hirsi was “very confused” in the wake of the bombshell allegations but still loved his wife and was reluctant to expose their three children to a public divorce battle.
The freshman congresswoman, 37, insisted she and Hirsi, 39, were still together and denied the charge she was dating Mynett in an interview with CBS affiliate WCCO on the day of the Aug. 27 report.
But the pair have been living apart since March — around the same time she was spotted having dinner with Mynett at a California restaurant — with Omar moving into a luxury condo in downtown Minneapolis and their split an “open secret” in town, the source said.
The family home they shared in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood — nicknamed “Little Mogadishu” for its large Somali population — appears to be abandoned, with the curtains drawn and cobwebs growing over the front porch when a Post reporter visited last week.
Hirsi, a senior policy aide to a Minneapolis city councilwoman, is reportedly bouncing between friends’ houses and stays at the luxury condo when Omar isn’t in town, with the kids also spending time with a grandfather, the source said.

Omar and Hirsi were first engaged in 2002.
But the duo never legally married; instead, they wed in a traditional Muslim ceremony and had two children before splitting up in 2008, Omar has said.
The next year, she married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, whom she described as a “British citizen,” records show.
They split up in 2011 and Omar and Hirsi got back together and had a third child in 2012, records show.
In 2017, Omar finally officially divorced Elmi.
She legally wed Hirsi the next year.
But they began experiencing marital problems shortly after Omar assumed office, said the source.
Hirsi was said to be unhappy with his wife’s constant travel as a member of “the Squad,” a group of far-left-leaning female freshman House members, leaving him the primary caregiver to three children aged between 7 and 16.
In April, Hirsi shared happy photos of a family vacation in Miami on social media — Omar notably absent — captioning the snaps with cryptic messages about new beginnings.
“Nothing brings about more positive change than difficulties,” he captioned one family photo.

Meanwhile, public documents obtained by The Post raise discrepancies in the timeline of Omar’s marriages to Hirsi and Elmi.
Documents suggest Omar never stopped living with Hirsi — even after they ended their religious marriage and she was legally married to Elmi.
In February 2009, when Omar legally married Elmi, she listed their marital address as a property in Columbia Heights, a suburb in Minneapolis.
However, just three months later, Hirsi used the same Columbia Heights property as his personal address on business filings for his One on One Cafe Lounge.
Two months later in August 2009, Omar began studying political science at North Dakota State University.
Omar and Hirsi moved to North Dakota together with their two children, according to a 2013 article in Twin Cities Daily Planet, even though she was supposed to be estranged from Hirsi and married to Elmi.
.@IlhanMN destroyed two families. Her own, and her lover’s, all under the guise of that hijab of modesty, while marrying her gay brother and committing immigration fraud. She’s not only a criminal but fake Muslim and homewrecker. Why aren’t Muslims outraged? We know why.— Chadwick Moore (@Chadwick_Moore) August 28, 2019
In traffic violations from 2008 to 2012 — the entire time Omar was married to Elmi — the congresswoman and Hirsi also listed their address as the family home in Cedar-Riverside, suggesting they never stopped living together.
When Omar and Elmi separated in 2011, the congresswoman claimed she couldn’t get in touch with Elmi to divorce him because he’d moved to the UK and she didn’t know where he was.
In divorce papers asking to dissolve their marriage by alternate means in 2017, Omar swore under penalty of perjury that she had no means of contacting Elmi and his last known location was London in June 2011.
But lease and eviction records suggest Elmi was in the US the whole time — living just 2.6 miles away from her at an apartment in downtown Minneapolis.
Elmi rented the apartment in September 2011 but was evicted in July 2012 for failing to pay his rent.
A month after Omar filed the divorce papers claiming she had no idea where Elmi was, he was busted in Minneapolis for driving on a canceled license — listing his address at another apartment in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.
Omar and Elmi’s divorce was finalized in December 2017, and Omar married Hirsi a month later in January 2018.
The congresswoman has refused to comment on both the affair allegations and the discrepancies in her marriages — dodging questions at an event in Minneapolis last week.
Tim Mynett and his E. Street Group received about $230,000 from Omar’s campaign for travel expenses, fundraising consulting, communications and more — a possible ethics violation.
Mynett denied the bombshell affair allegations in a counterclaim filed in DC Superior Court — accusing his wife of waging a campaign to “ruin his career” after he left their unhappy marriage.
