We don’t know what the truth really is. The press LIED about his first marriage and divorce. The MSM lies about everything.
However, in this case it's not the press...it's Marianne.
I remember feeling sorry for her back when he ditched her. She seemed like a nice lady.
Then I read an interview a couple of years ago in which she said that as endearing as Newt is he's somewhat of a megalomaniac.
She doesn't strike me as nasty; she strikes me as someone who knows personally that Newt is not suited for the Presidency.
