Boris Johnson booted out by wife Marina after she accused him of cheating again
London, September 7, 2018 (AltAfrica)-BORIS Johnson has split with his long-suffering wife Marina after she accused him of cheating on her again.
This would be a big blow to Boris Premiership ambition and a good music to his long standing enemies
A leading UK tabloid, Sun Newspaper says ex-Foreign Secretary and his high-flying lawyer wife, both 54, are now living apart and no longer socialise as a couple.
The Johnsons’ 25-year marriage has been rocked previously by his flings with other women.
Boris’ daughter has claimed wife Marina “will never take him back”.
She is said to have told pals at a party he “is a selfish bastard”.
On Friday, Boris Johnson and his wife, Marina Wheeler, both confirmed the story with announcement that they are in the process of a divorce after separating some time ago.
The former foreign secretary and the senior lawyer, both 54, have been married for 25 years. They made the announcement in a joint statement after a story appeared in the Sun on Friday detailing claims that Johnson was unfaithful.
Johnson resigned as foreign secretary in July over his opposition to Theresa May’s Chequers Brexit plan. He has since written a series of articles criticising the government, which have been viewed as attempts to position himself as an alternative prime minister.
Wheeler is a human rights lawyer who became a Queen’s counsel in 2016. Johnson credited her as a key voice in his decision to support Brexit before the referendum.
In a joint personal statement issued to the Press Association through a family friend, Johnson and Wheeler said: “Several months ago, after 25 years of marriage, we decided it was in our best interests to separate.
“We have subsequently agreed to divorce and that process is under way. As friends we will continue to support our four children in the years ahead. We will not be commenting further.”
