WEST PALM BEACH — The wife of Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg filed for divorce earlier today, citing irreconcilable differences after just 21 months of marriage.
Lynn Aronberg, a public relations maven and event planner, confirmed she put in the paperwork about 3 p.m. at the West Palm Beach courthouse. The petition has yet to be processed by the county’s clerk of the court and won’t be made public until Monday.
In an exclusive interview with Gossip Extra, Lynn cited two reasons for her unhappiness.
She wants a baby, “like yesterday,” she said, and Dave doesn’t.
What’s more, Lynn’s obvious support for Donald Trump has caused a firestorm among those in Dave’s liberal base, and Lynn says her husband has not stood up to those who criticize her!
The news comes suddenly for those who know the county’s power couple. Dave and Lynn have appeared together at Mar-a-Lago and at recent Democratic events.
Dave, 45, and former Miami Dolphins cheerleader Lynn, 36, were engaged while visiting Paris in December 2014. They were married the following May before family and friends on the sand of St. Pete Beach, and Gossip Extra was the only news organization allowed to cover the couple’s big day.
“It’s just not working out,” Lynn tells Gossip Extra. “I want a baby so bad, but Dave’s not responding to that need.
“He’ll tell people he does want a baby, too, but deep down, I known he doesn’t. We’ve gone through couple’s therapy already. But it’s a pretty clear-cut issue, one that’s not up for negotiation.”
Then, Lynn says, there’s also the fact politics have now polarized even the tightest couples.
“So what, if I like Ivanka Trump or a conservative issue on social media,” Lynn says. “So what if I invite Melania to be in my book group? Dave has been getting calls from supporters, like union people or far left types. One actually told hm to ‘keep your woman in line.’
“Excuse me? Keep your woman in line? I’m my own person. I’ve got a successful business. I’ve got my own opinion. I’m a lifelong Republican.
“Dave is bi-partisan. But he’d tell me how people would go up to him to criticize me, and it didn’t sound like he was defending me.”
This is yet another Gossip Extra exclusive you shouldn’t expect to see in West Palm Beach’s corporate media until Monday, at best. Why? Like their readers and viewers, their sources have deserted them. Bypass them, #dropthepaper and click here to subscribe to our daily alerts!
When they first were married, Lynn tells Gossip Extra, Dave’s political entourage thought that her right leaning politics were “cute.”
With Trump in the White House and at Mar-a-Lago every weekend, and the Aronbergs two months from their second anniversary, things have changed.
“It’s possible that some of his supporters are marching while I’m inside Mar-a-Lago,” Lynn says. “I understand that. But the fact Dave is hearing it from his supporters made me angry. It surprised me. I thought liberals had more class than trying to tell me what to do through Dave.”
Still, Lynn said she loves Dave.
“He’s a great guy,” she says. “His star is rising, and he’s a great servant of the people.
“It’s just that I can’t be monitored for the rest of my life by people who have different political views.”
Through his spokesman, Dave said: “Lynn is a good person and I wish her a great future, and know this will be resolved privately between the two of us.”
Christian Ulvert, the spokesman, asked that the couple’s privacy be respected.
