JUST IN: Fox News host Jesse Watters has just found himself in hot water as he has admitted to cheating on his wife of nine years with a 25 year-old producer on his show.
Daily Mail reported that Watters is currently in the middle of a nasty divorce battle with his wife Noelle Inguagiato. He reportedly admitted to having an affair with his 25-year-old associate producer Emma DiGiovine. Watters told his bosses of the affair back in October, right after Noelle filed for divorce.
Sources said that though DiGiovine was transferred to work for The Ingraham Angle, she has continued to date Watters.
“Within 24 hours of Jesse Watters voluntarily reporting to the Chief of Human Resources in November 2017 that he was in a consensual relationship with a woman on his staff, management met with both parties and a decision was made for the woman to be transferred to work on another program on the network where she currently remains,” a Fox News spokesman said.
Watters married Inguagiato in 2009 after they both met while working at Fox News. At the time, he was working for Bill O’Reilly while she worked for the advertising and promotions department and was the host of a web show called iMag Style. They welcomed twin daughters in 2011, and Inguagiato never returned to work after going on maternity leave.
DiGiovine reportedly became Watters’ associate producer in June 2016, when his segment was still part of O’Reilly’s show. Watters’ weekly show airs on Saturdays at 8pm, and it combines humor and political news in a fresh slant aimed at a younger audience.
Watters is rumored to be a favorite cable news personality of President Donald Trump, and even dined with the commander-in-chief on Monday. Trump had asked both Watters and former aide Sebastian Gorka to dinner at the White House because “he couldn’t get enough of them on TV.”
