Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-GA) husband filed for divorce after more than two decades of marriage.
MTG’s husband, Perry Greene, filed for divorce on Tuesday after 27 years of marriage, according to court documents obtained by TMZ.
“Marriage is a wonderful thing and I’m a firm believer in it,” the congresswoman told TMZ. “Our society is formed by a husband and wife creating a family to nurture and protect. Together, Perry and I formed our family and raised three great kids. He gave me the best job title you can ever earn: Mom.”
“I’ll always be grateful for how great of a dad he is to our children,” she added.
The couple have separated in the past and it is not clear what led to Perry Greene’s desire to file for a divorce. MTG has been accused of having affairs in the past.
A petition was filed to seal the divorce proceedings, citing “confidential and sensitive information”. The petition stated that “the parties’ significant privacy interest in sealing the records outweighs the public’s minuscule interest in access to said records.”
The filing stated that “sensitive personal and financial information” would be revealed throughout the course of the divorce proceedings which would “negatively impact the parties’ privacy interests.”
