Jill Kelley— the woman who blew the lid of a s-x scandal between former CIA head David Petraeus and his female biographer—will have her honorary consul title revoked by South Korea, officials announced Monday (Nov. 26).
Kelley, a Tampa housewife, socialite, and alleged aspiring reality TV star, was stripped of the title for using it for personal gain.
“It’s not suitable to the status of honorary consul that [she] sought to be involved in commercial projects and peddle influence. It’s also inappropriate as honorary consul,” revealed Deputy Foreign Minister Kim Kyou-hyun.
Kelley is accused of using the title to broker a billion-dollar business deal.
Ever since she’s been launched into the spotlight, after alerting the FBI to threatening emails she received from Petraeus’ mistress, Paula Broadwell, Kelley’s dirty laundry has been strewn across the news circuit.
The mother of three has had her VIP privileges snatched away, is no longer allowed at MacDill Air Force Base, and is believed to have misused her honorary consul title more than once, including during a 911 call. Fed-up with the droves of photographers and reporters camping outside her estate in Tampa, Fla., even though she opened the curtains of her home and sat in plain view, the 37-year-old quickly pulled the consul card to get them to go away.“I’m an honorary consul general, so I have inviolability, so they should not be able to cross my property,” she said. “I don’t know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well.”
In wake of the scandal, Kelley denied having a non-professional relationship with Petraeus, as allegedly assumed by Broadwell. But further investigation into her emails found that she engaged in inappropriate, albeit flirty, correspondence with Gen. John Allen, who replaced Petraeus.
