For Scaramucci, A Blistering Week Ends With Divorce and a Newborn Son

Anthony ‘The Mooch’ Scaramucci spent much of last week spewing vulgar, blistering attacks on former Chief of Staff Reince Preibus, West Wing leakers, and Trump strategist Steve Bannon. By week’s end, the White House’s newly anointed Communications Director was responding to questions about a NYPost Page Six report that his wife had left him and filed for divorce.  


Deidre Ball, who worked as a vice president in investor relations for SkyBridge Capital, the firm [Scaramucci] founded in 2005 and sold to ascend to the White House, has filed for divorce from “The Mooch” after three years of marriage after getting fed up with his ruthless quest to get close to President Trump, whom she despises.


Scaramucci, 53, and Ball, 38, began dating in 2011 and are believed to have married in 2014. They have two children. A subsequent story on Page Six in the NYPost was that the divorce was filed July 6th, while Ms. Ball was 9 months pregnant. On Monday, while Scaramucci was in West Virginia with President Trump for the Boy Scouts Jamboree, Ms. Ball gave birth to the couple’s baby boy James. He reportedly visited the child late Friday night.  


A lot of money could be at stake in this divorce. Scaramucci agreed in January to sell his interest in SkyBridge Capital for an undisclosed price to a group of investors, that includes Chinese financial firm HNA Group. The deal, which is still pending “regulatory approvals,” could bring upwards of $180 million to Scaramucci.


According to Business Insider, The $180 million conflict that kept Scaramucci out of the White House in January has only gotten shadier.”
