A rumor is making its way to social media. It goes like this, “Barack Obama files for divorce from his wife, Michelle Obama, after revealing that he is a homosexual”.
There is no confirmation of this rumor. But, a filing in the District Court of Cook County, Illinois confirms that the couple is seeking a divorce. The reason being, the former president of the U.S. announces that “he is a gay”. This news stems from a website’s article titled, “Michelle Obama Files For Divorce After Shocking Revelation; Barack Obama Admits: ‘I’m Gay!’“
According to the website, Barack Obama said, “It is with a bit of sadness and a whole lot of relief that I announce that Michelle and I have decided to separate, as I have admitted to her, as I’m doing now to the rest of the world, that I am a homosexual”. He further added, “This may come as a shock to many, and anger others, but this is my personal business, and I would hope that everyone could respect my privacy at this time”.
