A rising star at Fox News is going through a heated divorce battle — and is accused of cheating on his wife with a 25-year-old former staffer on his show, according to a new report.
Jesse Watters, 39, hosts “Watters World” and is a co-host on “The Five.”
Last year, he disclosed to the network a relationship with 25-year-old Emma DiGiovine.
‘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 spokeswoman told the New York Daily News.
DiGiovine was transferred to “The Ingraham Angle.”
Watters married Noelle Inguagiato in 2009. They have twin daughters together but she filed for divorce last October. According, to the NYDN, Watters cheated on his wife with DiGiovine.
The host worked for years under Bill O’Reilly, doing a weekly segment on the program and was seen as the longtime host’s protege.
