Sources explain that the former Second Lady is "baffled" to see Al's named "dragged through the mud" this way. Though accusations of sexual assault would be a good reason for a split, the source swears that none of these lies are the reason for their impending divorce.
Tipper's friend explains further:
"Tipper has known about these allegations since Al found out about them himself. She has known that massage has been very much a part of his health regimen for many, many, many years. She doesn't believe any of the allegations that this woman [Hagerty] is making and they played no role whatsoever in their decision to separate."
Standing by her man even through a divorce. That's a reliable politician's wife if we ever saw one!
We're still pulling for you, Al! (Just don't make us regret it!)
