[Blind Gossip] Normally, if a couple is in legal trouble, they tend to stick together.
Continuing the marriage can be a form of protection, as you cannot be compelled to testify against your spouse.
However, in the case of this political marriage, one party may see separation/divorce as the best way to save themselves!
He has already been approached by officials. He knows that they have evidence of fraud. He does not want to go down on the sinking ship with her. He has to protect himself and his children and he has to stay in the country.
So it sounds like he may be looking to cut a deal to save himself and his kids. It also sounds like this is quite a serious case as spousal testimonial privilege normally only occurs in criminal cases.
On the other hand, both of them may have behaved rather shadily in the past, so this could just be another trick.
We really don’t know exactly how this will all play out… but it certainly is fascinating to hear about the turmoil behind the scenes!
