President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle planned to divorce in 2000 according to a controversial new biography.
In The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, author Edward Klein claims that the Obamas were discusing divorce eight years into their marriage.
“Michelle actually had divorce papers drawn up,” Klein wrote, quoting one of Mrs. Obama’s friends.
At that time, 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.
“This was a calamitous turn of events, and during the dark days that followed his defeat, he turned to Michelle for comfort. But she was in no mood for sympathy,” Klein wrote.
“After all, he had refused to listen to her warnings about taking on the formidable Bobby Rush. He had put his family in a precarious financial position. And he had dashed Michelle’s hopes of creating a stable and secure future. As a result, their marriage was on the rocks, and Obama confided to friends that he and Michelle were talking about divorce.”
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.”

This book is not the first time the Obamas’ marriage has been called in question. In 2010, the National Enquirer reported that Michelle Obama threatened to leave the President if he decided to seek a second term in office.
Another recent book Barack Obama: The Story includes journal entries from some of Obama’s former girlfriends and offers a look into his younger life and the demons he faced, such as his drug use.
Several years ago, Larry Sinclair wrote a scandalous book Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder? and claimed Barack was bi and had a gay affair with him in Sinclair’s limo while they were high on cocaine.
He also claimed Obama was involved in a murder.
After the book was published, Sinclair claimed to magazines that Michelle was trying to have him silenced and have his reputation ruined.
The Obamas have been married for nearly 20 years and have two daughters, Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10.

Does the sun have the power to transform humankind?
In Solar (R)evolution, world-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers makes a compelling case, pointing to a wealth of scientific evidence that shows a remarkable correlation between increases in solar activity and advances in our creative, mental, and spiritual abilities.
We are in the midst of a dramatic rise in solar disturbances, which have the capability of disrupting the Earth’s geomagnetic field and, as a result, our global ecology. Broers, however, sees this not as an impending apocalypse but as the dawn of a new era.
Drawing on research from a variety of disciplines, he shows how erupting solar activity carries the potential to boost our brain capacity and expand our minds in ways we never imagined possible. Abilities now seen as extraordinary or supernatural—telepathy, extrasensory perception, and off-the-charts intelligence quotients—may soon become ordinary and natural and could very well help us solve the mounting global crises we are facing.
Humankind is going through an evolutionary leap, says Broers, and the process has already begun.
