Former Donald Trump advisor George Papadopoulos's wife is leaving him, she announced on Twitter on Monday.

Simona Mangiante married Papadopoulos in 2018, after he had pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI.

Mangiante cited "months of abuses" and disrespect on his podcast.

Papadopoulos had attempted to launch his political career in last week's Super Tuesday voting, running for a congressional seat in California.

Papadopoulos often posted photos to Twitter of him with Mangiante:
