Heidi Cruz Filed for Divorce Twice-Reported as Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
Heidi Cruz filed for divorce from Ted Cruz twice, in 2005 and 2011, citing “infidelity” as the reason.
There’s no credible evidence to support claims that Heidi Cruz filed for divorce twice, so we’re calling this one fiction.
The rumor started after the National Enquirer reported that Ted Cruz had a number of extramarital affairs, and that five of his mistresses had come forward.
We investigated those claims and found them to be “unproven” because the Enquirer didn’t cite any credible sources. Click here for that story.
In the wake of reports that Ted Cruz was unfaithful to his wife, Heidi, reports began circulating the blogosphere that Heidi had filed for divorce twice, in 2005 and 2011, because of Ted’s infidelity.
But there haven’t been any divorce papers or electronic records produced to support claims that Heidi Cruz filed for divorce twice. A number of blog sites linked to a story about Heidi Cruz canceling campaign appearances for her husband after rumors of an affair surfaced, but those reports didn’t make any mention of her filing for divorce twice.
We searched electronic court records for any divorce filings that Heidi may have made (including in Harris County, Texas, where the couple lives), and we couldn’t find anything.
So, given that there’s no credible evidence to support claims that Heidi Cruz filed for divorce twice, we’re reporting this one as fiction.
