Ilhan Omar’s ex-husband, Ahmed Hirsi, learned of her alleged affair with her chief fundraiser when he walked in on the two lounging around her apartment.
Ahmed Hirsi will be paid tens of thousands of dollars by Ilhan Omar to stay silent, according to a report.
Ahmed Hirsi made the shocking discovery last spring, during a surprise visit to his then-wife’s Washington, DC apartment from Minnesota, where he was living with their three children, the Daily Mail reported.
“It’s wasn’t that he actually caught them in bed,” a source told the Mail of Hirsi walking in on Omar and her chief fundraiser Tim Mynett, who was also married at the time.
“But they were clearly in a romantic situation,” the source said of the pajama-clad lovers.
The cuckolded Hirsi’s family then joined with Omar’s family in reaching a financial settlement that bars him from speaking publicly about the breakup, the Mail reported, citing unnamed sources.
Hirsi had suspected Omar was cheating, “but she kept telling him he was paranoid,” and insisted he stay in Minnesota with the children, the source told the Mail. He was left “angry and humiliated” by the discovery, the source said.
He will now collect as much as $250,000 over six years if he keeps his mouth shut, the source told the Mail.
