Ex-Rep. Katie Hill settles divorce from ‘abusive’ husband after blaming him for exposing ‘throuple’ with female staffer – The Sun

FORMER Democratic Congresswoman Katie Hill has reportedly settled her divorce from husband, after blaming him for exposing details about her sex life.

Hill, 33, resigned from Congress last year after nude photos that she allegedly sent to a junior staffer were leaked and an ethics probe was launched into an alleged affair with another aide.


The California congresswoman later accused her husband, Kenny Heslep, 36, of exposing details and trying to ruin her career.

Heslep's lawyers told DailyMail.com that Hill's claims that Heslep had been "abusive" were "all smoke and mirrors."

Attorney Michelle Sherwood said the divorce was settled amicably, adding that there were no allegations of abuse or violence in any court documents, despite Hill's claims.

Heslep filed for divorce in July of 2019 in Los Angeles County Court.

DIVORCE SETTLED

Official court records reportedly now read "case settled," and no details of the settlement were included in the court documents.

Hill was a freshman in Congress when she was elected in November 2018, and she also became the first openly bisexual member of the House.

She was also the Vice-Chair of the House Oversight Committee and seen by some, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, as a rising star in the Democratic Party.

However, a disgraced Hill quit Congress on October 27, 2019, after the website Red State revealed had been in a "throuple" relationship with Heslep and junior staffer Morgan Desjardins, who was 22 at the time.


At the time of her resignation, Hill was also being looked into by the House Ethics Committee, after it was alleged she was having an affair with her campaign finance director, Graham Kelly.

Both Hill and Kelly denied the affair.

Reports claimed that Kelly had been given a $5,000 bonus – the highest fee received by her campaign staff – while Heslep took to social media to accuse his wife of having an affair.

Despite denying the Kelly affair, Hill did apologize to her constituents for the "throuple" relationship she had shared with Desjardins, which began in 2017 and broke down in the summer of 2019, when Hill said she wanted to focus on her work.

Earlier this year, the former congresswoman released a memoir, "She Will Rise: Becoming a Warrior in the Battle for True Equality," which continued to paint Heslep as vengeful.

Actress Elizabeth Moss is reportedly set to play Hill in a movie about the politician's memoir.
