Representative Lauren Boebert is denying rumors that she’s romantically involved with Sean Feucht, a Christian country singer.
“How can I be with a man with better hair than me?” Boebert joked, referring to Feucht’s long, curly, blonde hair.
Lauren Boebert: Rumors of an affair, and of a messy divorce
The rumors are spiking after Boebert announced she was divorcing her husband Jayson Boebert, after nearly two decades of marriage.
Lauren Boebert cited “irreconcilable differences.” Jayson Boebert reported that he was not expecting the divorce, but said “I just want [Lauren] to be happy.”
Jayson was reportedly not pleased when he was served divorce papers. “According to an affidavit,” Insider reported, “Jayson Boebert got “extremely angry” with the process server who delivered divorce papers to him, and tried to reject the documents. The server said in the affidavit that Jayson Boebert “closed the door” on him and “then let the dogs out.”
Lauren Boebert disputes the report. “Our own home security footage shows he didn’t “sick dogs” on the process server. The dogs were outside when the server pulled up, they never showed aggression toward him, nor did he appear afraid of them.”
Whatever happened with the dogs, Lauren Boebert denies the affair.
“There is absolutely nothing romantic between Sean Feucht and I, nor has there been,” Boebert said. “So he is a wonderful friend, and he and I have done a lot of events together.”
Feucht, for his part, pushed back hard against the rumor.
“This is false. And its defamatory. I’m giving everyone making this accusation 24 hours to retract and apologize. If you don’t you’ll hear from my lawyer,” Feucht tweeted.
So, who is Sean Feucht?
If you’re wondering who Sean Feucht is, you’re not alone.
According to Feucht’s website, he is a “missionary, musician, activist, author, and speaker” who “travels the world sharing the life-changing power of the Gospel.” Additionally, Feucht “founded multiple global movements and was one of the earliest and most vocal critics of government attempts to shutter churches and silence worship in 2020.”
Apparently Feucht has political ambitions. He ran unsuccessfully as a Republican in California’s 3rd congressional district. He came in third place in the primary (with 14 percent of the votes) behind John Garamendi and Tamika Hamilton. Feucht’s campaign promoted a socially conservative viewpoint; Feucht denounced high taxes and he opposes abortion, calling it “the slaughter of the unborn and the newborn.” Feucht also wanted to give parents more discretion over mandatory vaccination and sexual education in schools.
Feucht was also one of 50 or so worship leaders invited to the White House for a faith briefing with Donald Trump in December 2019. “We just laid our hands on him and prayed for him,” Feucht said of the event. “It was like a real intense, hardcore prayer.”
In late 2020, Feucht organized a series of “Let Us Worship” concerts that protested government restrictions on public gatherings during COVID-19 lockdowns. Feucht said “We just feel this call to really target cities that are under extreme turmoil and despair and brokenness.”
So, maybe we’ll hear more of Feucht in the future.
He seems motivated to make a name for himself.
He and Boebert should be able to sidestep any fallout from this affair rumor, maybe use the affair publicity to break into a higher tier of public recognition.
