Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.) has filed for a divorce from her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, according to a report issued today by WCCO 4, a CBS affiliate in Minnesota.

“Court records confirm that the 37-year-old representative filed for divorce on Friday, from her husband, Ahmed Hirsi,” said the WCCO 4 report.

“In the divorce filing,” said the report, “it’s stated that there was an ‘irretrievable breakdown of the marriage relationhip.’ Omar is requesting joint legal and physical custody of their three children.”

WCCO noted that Omar’s lawyer, Jaime Driggs. The CBS affiliate quoted Driggs from that statement as follows:

“Ilhan has filed for divorce from her husband Ahmed. As with all marriages, this is intensely personal and a difficult time for their family. For years, Ilhan and Ahmed have been the object of speculation and inuendo from political opponents and the media. This has taken a significant toll on Ilhan, Ahmed, and their three children. Just like any other family navigating this kind of transition, Ilhan wishes to have their privacy respected for themselves and their children and will not be commenting any further.”
