Marjorie Taylor Greene Divorce Could Have 'Financial Information' Sealed

Marjorie Taylor Greene's husband has filed for divorce from the Georgia congresswoman, requesting that the proceedings be filed under seal to keep "financial information" about the pair from being made public.

Perry Greene filed for divorce in Floyd County Superior Court on Wednesday, citing that the marriage to Marjorie Taylor Greene has been "irretrievably broken," according to court documents seen by a number of news outlets.

Perry Greene described in the court filings that he and the Republican congresswoman, who have been married for 27 years, had been in a "bona-fide state of separation" since before he filed the papers.

Perry Greene also asked that the divorce be filed under seal, saying that "the record will contain sensitive personal and financial information, the public disclosure of which would negatively impact the parties' privacy interests," without specifying further.

Perry Greene said in the filings that the parties' "significant" privacy interest in sealing the records outweighs the "public's miniscule interest in access to said records."

Marjorie Taylor Greene acknowledged receipt of the divorce petition on Wednesday, according to the court filings.

The pair married in August 1995 when the congresswoman was still in college at the University of Georgia, and they went on to have three children.

In a statement to Insider, Perry Greene called Marjorie Taylor Greene his "best friend for the last 29 years" and an "amazing mom," but ultimately, they are heading in different directions.

"Our family is our most important thing we have done. As we go on different paths, we will continue to focus on our three incredible kids and their future endeavors and our friendship," Perry Greene said.

Marjorie Taylor Greene told The Hill that the divorce is a "private and personal matter" while also praising her estranged husband as a father.

"Marriage is a wonderful thing and I'm a firm believer in it. Our society is formed by a husband and wife creating a family to nurture and protect. Together, Perry and I formed our family and raised three great kids. He gave me the best job title you can ever earn: Mom," she said in a statement.

"I'll always be grateful for how great of a dad he is to our children."

In February 2021, DailyMail.com reported that Marjorie Taylor Greene had an affair with two people she met at her Georgia gym in 2012. The congresswoman denied the claims as "ridiculous tabloid garbage."

Newsweek has contacted Marjorie Taylor Greene for further comment.
