Kellyanne Conway and her husband George have filed for divorce after 22 years of marriage after admitting her husband’s criticism of Donald Trump was treason.
The pair known as political opposites have gone their separate ways after years of speculation if the pair even liked each other, according to Page six. George has been one of Donald Trump’s biggest critics, publicly mocking the president on Twitter while employing his wife.
Kellyanne and George got married in 2001 and had four children together – Claudia, Vanessa, Charlotte and George.
The pair have both hired divorced lawyers and are working on dividing their assets, Page Six reported.

Kellyanne, 56, became a Trump adviser in 2016 and served as his campaign manager. While working endlessly for the president, her husband — who co-founded the Lincoln Project, which worked to prevent Trump’s re-election — accused the president on social media.
It seems the divorce hasn’t slowed his criticism, as he took to Twitter on Friday to insult the former leader, including retweeting a post questioning the president’s sanity.
Their political divisions were addressed in Kellyanne’s 2022 memoir Here’s The Deal, where she revealed that she viewed his criticism as a betrayal of their marriage. She deemed his tweets “cheating” and it was revealed that Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, had suggested that the pair go into therapy.
Trump himself had even called George a “stone cold LOSER & husband from hell” at one point.
Another hitch in the family image came in 2020 after their teenage daughter Claudia criticized her mother and Trump.
Kellyanne announced in August 2020 that she would be leaving the White House the day after the 15-year-old said in a series of tweets that she was “officially pushing for emancipation” from her parents.

Kellyanne said she left for the sake of her family, to be “less drama, more mama.”
But shortly after the announcement, Claudia Conway took to TikTok and stated that her parents were going to get a divorce, but they’ve now called it off “to avoid being emancipated.”
She accused her father George of not caring about her and not knowing her middle name and said her mother has been physically abusive all her life.
George also stepped back from his role on the Lincoln Project, taking a short break from Twitter to focus on family.
In a statement at the time, Kellyanne called her time in the Trump administration “tumultuous” and “humiliating,” saying she and George made the decision based on what they think is best for their four children.
“We disagree on many things,” she wrote of her and her husband, “but we agree on what is most important: the children.

“Our four kids are teens and tweens starting a new academic year in middle school and high school that will be conducted away from home for a few months. As millions of parents across the country know, children who ‘go to school from home’ require a level of attention and vigilance that is as uncommon as it is today.”
Conway continued, “This is entirely my choice and my vote. In time I will announce future plans. For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama.’
Months later, more drama erupted between Kellyanne and Claudia after the latter posted a TikTok publicly accusing her mother of hiding her positive COVID-19 diagnosis and saying that Trump is worse than he claims.
Claudia posted a message to the site to “clarify” her claim that Donald Trump’s aide had “lied” about her test result on Friday – but the pair argued in the video when Kellyanne accused her daughter of “lying about your damn mother . ‘
