Joe Scarborough

QUIET DIVORCE

... After 12-Year Marriage

10/10/2013 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1009_joe_scarborough_gettyJoe Scarborough -- host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" -- quietly divorced his wife of 12 years back in January ... TMZ has learned.

The 50-year-old former Florida congressman filed the divorce docs in Connecticut back in September 2012 ... seeking to end his marriage to Susan Waren, a former aide to FL Gov. Jeb Bush. The two were married in 2001.

The former couple have 2 minor children together -- a 10-year-old and a 5-year-old.

There have been rumors for years that Scarborough has a thing for his "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski (who is married btw). And the sexual tension between the two is so apparent, they addressed it during a media event in 2009 ... denying having any sort of romantic feelings for each other.

1009_Mika-Brzezinski_joe_scarborough_getty2It's not Scarborough's first brush with divorce -- the conservative pundit ended his 1st marriage to Melanie Hinton back in 1999 after 13 years together. Joe and Melanie had 2 children together, who are now adults.

I'm not sure who he is but I know he's one of those political spin channel (FOX or MSNBC) liars but she looks like a bitch. I'll bet she made him wear a freaking dress in the house.

So, he cheated on his first wife with this bimbo and married her and cheated on her with the co host and divorced her too. When is he marrying the co host?

Good. Now maybe he'll shut up long enough for someone else to get a word in edgewise on the show.

I've always thought there was something between Squinty and Mika. She's hot, until she opens her mouth.

He is such a jerk and now I know why he always looks so sloppy in the mornings. He tries to dress like a kid and it isn't working.He wants to be considered as a Professional but he is far from that. He looks like a drunk most mornings.
