One Crown Office Row’s Marina Wheeler QC and Boris Johnson confirm divorce

Marina Wheeler QC and her MP husband Boris Johnson are to divorce, according to a joint statement issued by the couple this morning. Confirmation of the split comes just hours after reports claimed the One Crown Office Row silk and her husband were living apart and no longer socialise as a couple.

The statement said:

“Several months ago, after 25 years of marriage, we decided it was in our best interests to separate. We have subsequently agreed to divorce and that process is under way. As friends we will continue to support our four children in the years ahead. We will not be commenting further.”

Overnight, The Sun claimed that the couple had broken up after the public law specialist “accused him of cheating”. This isn’t the first time the full-figured ex-foreign secretary has been hit with claims of infidelity. According to the report, blonde bombshell Boris allegedly had affairs with author Petronella Wyatt and art consultant Helen Macintyre.

In 2016 and during the couple’s happier times, Legal Cheek reported that Johnson had accompanied Wheeler to her silk ceremony at Westminster Hall. Prior to joining the bar in 1987, the high-flying barrister completed a masters in EU law from Brussels University and a law undergraduate degree at Cambridge University.

Oh god, she’s not a “top QC”… I’ll give you “top barrister” in the sense that QCs are top barristers, but for QC standard she’s reasonably alright, no more. She’s not some heavyweight at the public bar.

However, “Top QC ditches curvy blonde” must be one of the best LegalCheek article titles ever, so hats off to you.

So is any tabloid rubbish that is tangentially related to law newsworthy?

Oh, it’s not ok to objectify women but it is ok to comment on a mans weight… I get it. Hilarious.

Dave is spot on. Legal Cheek, how dare you!!!!!! Just because Boris is carrying a few extra pounds you think it’s funny to make fun of him. Shame on you! Boris is a big, beautiful, confident, fabulous man. He’s done so much for this country. He’s done more than the author of this article ever will. I bet the author is fat, too, and is taking it out on dear Boris. Boris can be whatever size he wants, and he’ll look amazing. I bet you wouldn’t comment on Dianne Abbot like ‘bloated blimp fucks her numbers up’, so why go in on Boris? What has he done? And another thing, his wife isn’t exactly a looker. Boris, you can do better! You do you, Boris. #menslivesmatter #fatshaming #manshaming #fatmanshaming

Totally agree Eugene, glad there’s another sensible person ready to step forward and stand up for the injustice that is spouted across the internet. Some people may not like Boris and they are entitled to their opinions, but you cannot say he isn’t a great sportsman. We all saw his commitment and drive for sport when he tackled that small child in a game of touch rugby. At least he brings his heart and puts everything into what he does. The result is fat shamming. It would be alright for me to point out that his wife isn’t fooling anyone with that terrible toupee. But I wouldn’t dream of it.
