Fox News host Jesse Watters' wife Noelle files for divorce after he admits to cheating with 25-year-old
Rumors of the host’s relationship with DiGiovine spread within the network as both posted social media photos of their Caribbean vacation.
Looks like Fox News is not getting relieved of its reputation of nurturing sleazy employees anytime soon, and the new sleaze to join the club is their host, Jesse Watters. Watters, who is nearly 40 years old with a wife and two young daughters, has reportedly been having a sexual relationship with 25-year-old associate producer Emma DiGiovine.
According to an exclusive article in the New York Daily News, Watters has been dating DiGiovine for several months and his wife Noelle Watters has filed for divorce. Sources said the 39-year-old host informed the network of his adulterous relationship with Emma DiGiovine shortly after Noelle filed the divorce papers.
DiGiovine and Watters, however, are still dating, according to the sources. A woman at DiGiovine’s home in Cranford, N.J., declined to comment further on the issue.
“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,” the spokesperson for Fox News said.
Sources also claimed that rumors of the host’s relationship with DiGiovine spread within the network late last year when both parties posted social media photos of their outings together, including a Caribbean vacation.
Watters met his now-estranged wife Noelle too at Fox News. Noelle worked in the advertising and promotions department along with being the host of a web show called iMag Style. The two got married in 2009 and had twin girls in 2011, as per reports.
Watters is a popular and well-known conservative presence on Fox News, making appearances as a commentator on many shows, apart from hosting his own segment on The O’Reilly Factor. He currently has his own show, called Watters’ World, where he is known for his brash and at-times obnoxious style of TV journalism.
Watters seems to have pursued his on-the-job romance even in the wake of Fox News struggling to move on from an entire barrage of shocking allegations about its office culture. The network’s founder, Roger Ailes, was previously asked to leave in July 2016 amid allegations of gruesome sexual harassment and sexism.
