‘Trump Divorce’ cited in split between ex-NFL cheerleader and Florida state attorney


A former NFL cheerleader’s split from her state attorney husband is described as the “Trump Divorce,” according to an unusual press release from the woman’s PR firm. 

The release notes that Dave Aronberg, the state attorney for Palm Beach County in Florida, is a Democrat, and describes his wife, Lynn Aronberg, a fomer Miami Dolphins cheerleader, as “a staunch Republican and supporter of President Donald Trump” who “said she felt increasingly isolated in the marriage.” 

The statement, released Thursday, describes the split as the “Trump Divorce” and also cites personal and financial details of the divorce settlement. 

The statement notes that, “according to a source familiar with the negotiations, the former Lynn Lewis, who spun her old Dolphins gig into a successful PR firm, is receiving about $100,000 worth of benefits in exchange for her signature on the dotted line. The deal calls for Aronberg, 46, to pay for half of Lynn’s rent in a luxury condo in tony Boca Raton until next summer. She’s also reportedly getting a brand new BMW and $40,000 cash.” 

Lynn Aronberg said she does not know how the press release came to include the settlement’s financial details, which she described as confidential, even though she works for the public relations firm, TransMedia Group, that issued the press statement on her behalf. 

“Whatever’s been put out there, I haven’t gotten to the bottom of it,” Lynn Aronberg told The Palm Beach Post on Thursday. 

Adrienne Mazzone, president of TransMedia, said her client announced the divorce settlement to satisfy a curious public. 

“Lynn is certainly a media maven,” Mazzone said. “The public has been asking a lot of questions, and we’re simply accommodating that.” 

Aronberg not only is a client, but an executive vice president of TransMedia, whose website says she has recently returned to the firm where she worked “before launching her own PR firm, Lynn Aronberg Public Relations, which she will maintain to serve a select group of private clients.” 

Lynn Aronberg said she and her ex-husband agreed to release a single joint paragraph, which reads: “After much consideration over the past few months, we’ve decided to respectfully and amicably part ways and end our marriage. We are, however, dedicated to remaining close friends. We kindly ask for your supporting in preserving our privacy as we start to navigate this new chapter in our lives.” 

Beyond that paragraph, however, the release includes eight other paragraphs with personal information not typically made public and sent to the press. 

Dave Aronberg proposed at the Eiffel Tower, according to the statement. 

In addition to their different political views, children were also an issue in the marriage, according to the statement. 

“They have no children, which was a problem for Lynn,” the statement reads. “She said she wanted children, but Aronberg was in no hurry.” 

Efforts to reach Dave Aronberg Thursday were unsuccessful. 

Lynn Aronberg said the information about her disagreement with Dave Aronberg on the subject of children was not a secret. 

“I told people a long time ago that I wanted a baby and that he wasn’t moving quickly enough,” she said. 

The statement notes that Dave Aronberg is considering a run for the U.S. House of Representatives. 

At one point, Lynn Aronberg was about to dip into the GOP legal ranks for help with the divorce, according to the statement. 

“When the divorce seemed to be stalling last month, Lynn started interviewing nationally famous divorce lawyers and one, Larry Klayman, the right wing founder of Freedom Watch and Judicial Watch, was ready to pounce until the former lovebirds settled,” the statement reads. 

Lynn Aronberg said she does not believe the release of personal and financial information from the divorce will have any political impact on her ex-husband. 

“Do you?” she asked. “I think he looks great. He makes for a great ex-husband. I don’t wish him anything but goodwill. I want the best for him.”
