Colorado Republican Lauren Boebert divorced her son’s father, Jayson Boebert, in 2023 following nearly 18 years of marriage, citing “irreconcilable differences.”

Earlier this month, the controversial lawmaker filed a temporary restraining order against her ex-husband alleging harassment.

Jayson Boebert, however, has slammed the order as “cruel and unfair” and claimed it was politically motivated to justify his ex-wife’s move to a new congresional district.
