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.

2:50 PM PT -- Joe and Susan tell us they "are still close friends" and remain focused on raising their children. They added, "This was a difficult decision but after much prayer and counseling, we concluded it was the right one for our family."

Now, will the libtards at PMSNBC report this story??? I doubt it but if they do, they'll blame his divorce on the Republicans.

I love how so many right-wing conservatives are all about God and family and tradition . . . but have lives littered with divorces. Gotta love the hypocrisy.

Joe Scarborough is a serial philanderer. His first wife divorced him due to him frolicking around with his young intern Lori Klausitis who was found dead in his office with a fractured skull. That's why he's never ran for political office ever again. The medical examiner in the case who labeled the death a suicide was later fired to due to him falsifying autopsy reports and the storage of dead body parts that he kept in a rented storage locker. This dude is unmitigated sleaze.

Mika is a sexy. They rub up against each other all the time. Likely a hand job of finger tease occasionally behind the scenes. No harm... eh?

In this pic, he looks like that actor that did that train movie with Sandra Bullock. No the guy that got hit by the train but the brother - he was the President in Independence Day movie with Will Smith.
