(GoRealNewsNow.com) – United States Representative Lauren Boebert, a Republican from Colorado, has initiated divorce proceedings with her husband, Jayson Boebert, to whom she has been married for nearly two decades.
According to documents filed on April 25, the intention is to end their marriage. This news was reportedly unexpected for Jayson, as revealed by an affidavit accessed by The Daily Beast.
The affidavit details that Jayson reacted angrily when presented with the divorce documents, using harsh language and forcing the process server to leave. It also alleges that Jayson released his dogs and accused the server of trespassing.
The report mentions that Jayson was cleaning a gun and drinking beer during this event.
“When he discovered that he was being given Dissolution of Marriage papers he was extremely upset,” the server stated. “I attempted to give him the papers but he refused. He began to shout and use harsh language, stating I was trespassing and that he would contact the Sheriff’s Office. I informed him that I was leaving the documents on the chair outside his door, at which point he closed the door and let the dogs out.”
Jayson disputes this version of events, sharing with The Daily Beast, “I was not drinking and I was not cleaning any gun. […] The divorce is sad; I did not anticipate this; I deeply love her, she has been my soul mate, and she is the mother of my children.”
“I was unaware of the reason I was being served, or if it was another radical left-wing individual approaching my house,” Jayson added.
He concluded by saying, “We have experienced a lot together, and I just want her to find happiness,” and: “So it’s whatever she wants.”
In reaction to the divorce filing, Rep. Boebert released a statement on Tuesday, identifying “irreconcilable differences” as the cause for the divorce.
“With a heavy heart, I have filed for divorce from my husband,” said Rep. Boebert. “I am thankful for our years of marriage and for our wonderful children, all of whom deserve privacy and love as we navigate this situation. I have always remained loyal in my marriage, and I strongly believe in the institution of marriage, which makes this announcement incredibly challenging. This is truly about irreconcilable differences.”
Boebert had previously shared that she met Jayson when she was 16 years old and employed at Burger King. Their first child, Tyler, was born when she was 18, and they recently became grandparents.
Boebert’s office indicated that she does not intend to speak about the matter publicly any further to respect their children’s privacy.
The pair had been married for 18 years.
"He was extremely angry."
