Truth Behind Obama's Divorce Rumors

The most powerful couple in the world almost called it quits before his presidency — claim shocking allegations from a controversial new book.

In "The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House," which hit shelves Tuesday, author Edward Klein claims that the divorce talk came eight years into the Obamas' marriage, after President Obama failed to listen to his wife's warnings about challenging Democratic congressman incumbent Bobby Rush for a Chicago House of Representatives seat in 2000. Obama lost the election by a 2-1 margin.

“During the dark days that followed his defeat, he turned to Michelle for comfort. But she was in no mood for sympathy," Klein reportedly writes. "He had refused to listen to her warnings about taking on” Rush.Michelle actually had divorce papers drawn up. Obama was so depressed that some of his friends worried that he was suicidal.

"But is it true? The unauthorized biography, which Klein claims is based on nearly 200 interviews, has been dismissed by presidential spokesperson Eric Schultz.On Monday, Schultz told the Washington Examiner, "Ed Klein has a proven history of reckless fabrication in order to sell books. Nobody in their right mind would believe the nonsense in this one."
