A tabloid insisted last year that former President Barack Obama sent divorce papers to his wife, Michelle Obama. It claimed that the couple had a toxic marriage. While the former President was unhappy with his wife’s luxurious lifestyle, the latter hated her husband's philandering ways.
It was reported by a magazine just last year that the couple had been constantly at loggerheads. They both wanted to split as even Michelle had been meeting her lawyers to finalize the divorce papers, according to an unnamed insider.
The source added that it was a “marriage of convenience” for the couple. While they both showed a united front when Barack Obama was in the White House, they have no reason to do so now that he is no longer in active politics, the insider stated.
It was also alleged that Barack Obama is not ready to pay alimony to Michelle so that she could lead a luxurious lifestyle. He was also unwilling to hand over their property set in Martha’s Vineyard.
The report further mentioned that Michelle Obama was trying to leak details about her husband’s alleged betrayal. A source snitched that she has hired several spies who were keeping a close tab on Barack’s movement.
The outlet published this story based on the absence of Michele’s wedding ring and they produced two pictures of her to prove their point. In the third photo, Barack Obama was also not wearing his.
However, there is a possibility of her not wearing the ring because she was working out when those pictures were taken. People often remove their jewelry while working out, Gossip Cop claims.
As far as Barack Obama is concerned, he is known to remove his wedding ring whenever he has some engagements so that it is safe. A year has passed since the report was published and it is obvious now that the report was incorrect. Michelle Obama and her husband are still happily married, contrary to what the article had insinuated.
Meanwhile, Barack Obama was campaigning for Joe Biden, the Democratic Presidential candidate who was his deputy, when he took a short break and headed to a basketball court. The former president scored a comfortable basket from a distance that stunned many people, Indian Express reports.
It seems he played basketball at the university level while studying at Punahou School in Hawaii. Barack Obama is said to be playing the sport even while he was in the White House.
