The Affair Drama
Jesse Watters, age 39, is in the spotlight after the news of his affair with a colleague was made public in a New York Daily News report on Saturday (March 10). He reportedly cheated on his wife with 25-year-old Emma DiGiovine, an associate producer at Fox News.
The Fox News host is said to have informed his bosses at the network after his wife filed for divorce in October 2017. As a result, DiGiovine was transferred to another department but is still dating Jesse Watters, according to sources.
A Fox News spokesperson spoke about the incident with the newspaper and said, “Within 24 hours of Jesse Watters voluntarily reporting to the Chief of Human Resources in November 2017 that he was in a consensual relationship with a woman on his staff, management met with both parties and a decision was made for the woman to be transferred to work on another program on the network where she currently remains.”
