(Newser) – Interesting: sending out a press release about your divorce. More interesting: deeming it a "Trump divorce." The Palm Beach Post reports on the demise of the marriage of ex-Miami Dolphins cheerleader Lynn Aronberg and Florida state attorney Dave Aronberg, with the two announcing their split via a statement from the TransMedia Group PR firm. And the stated reason for their divorce lends new meaning to the phrase "politics is local": Lynn Aronberg, in her mid-30s, is a "staunch Republican and supporter of President Donald Trump" who says she felt "increasingly isolated in the marriage," which lasted just over two years, per the Tampa Bay Times; her 46-year-old ex is a Democrat. The statement also outlines the $100,000 or so settlement Lynn Aronberg is getting, including a new BMW, $40,000 in cash, and half her rent paid at her Boca Raton condo through next year.

Oddly, however, in addition to owning her own media firm, Lynn Aronberg is also an executive VP for TransMedia—but she says she has no idea how all of the financial concessions snuck into the press release, nor other intimate info, such as Dave Aronberg allegedly not wanting to have kids with the same eagerness as she did. She says she and her ex agreed to put out a three-sentence paragraph together that mainly just said they were "respectfully and amicably" parting ways as "close friends," followed by a request for privacy. "Whatever's been put out there, I haven't gotten to the bottom of it," were her words to the Palm Beach Post on Thursday. No comment from Dave Aronberg, about whom his ex-wife says: "He makes for a great ex-husband. I don't wish him anything but goodwill."
