Colorado Representative Lauren Boebert has rejected claims that she is dating right-wing Christian country artist Sean Feucht.
In a new interview, Boebert, who announced her divorce from her spouse of over two decades, Jayson Boebert, denied allegations that she is involved with Feucht.
“How can I be with a man with better hair than me?” she told the Daily Beast’s Zachary Petrizzo.
“There is absolutely nothing romantic between Sean Feucht and I, nor has there been,” she added. “So he is a wonderful friend, and he and I have done a lot of events together.”
The two have been seen praying in a circle in the Capitol building.
According to the Daily Beast, Feucht, who is married with four children, came out swinging against the charges.
“This is false. And it’s 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 on Friday.
The cheating accusations surfaced just days after Boebert told The Colorado Sun on May 16 that she had filed for divorce from Jayson Boebert due to “irreconcilable differences.”
According to an affidavit, Jayson Boebert became “extremely angry” with the process server who brought the divorce papers to him and tried to reject them. In the affidavit, the waiter stated that Jayson Boebert “closed the door” on him and “then let the dogs out.”
However, Lauren Boebert denied the server’s claims in a tweet on May 17, which said: “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.”
Jayson Boebert also told the Daily Beast that he was not expecting the divorce, but added: “I just want her to be happy.”
