The president’s brother is splitting from his wife of 23 years — there have been published reports that he has a replacement waiting in the wings — and a trial date has been set for mid-April in a Houston court, says a source familiar with the case.
“This thing could get really ugly,” says the insider.“We’re hoping that it will all get settled out of court. The last thing we want now is for the Bush family to be airing its dirty laundry.”
The couple are the parents of model Lauren Bush.
“Of course,” adds the insider, “in the current political climate, maybe no one will touch the story because they don’t want to be accused of being unpatriotic.”
