Meet The Woman Who Exposed David

37-year-old Jill Kelley alerted authorities when she began receiving threatening emails. The FBI traced the emails back to Paula Broadwell, uncovering the Petraeus-Broadwell affair along the way.

The AP has identified 37-year-old Jill Kelley as the woman who complained about receiving emails from Paula Broadwell, leading to an FBI investigation into Broadwell's relationship with former CIA Director David Petraeus.

There's no evidence Kelley was having an affair with Petraeus as well just that she had received emails from Broadwell that warranted a complaint against the 40-year-old married biographer.




Kelley is reportedly a "social liaison" to the MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, where she lives. The AP initially identified her as a State Department liaison. However, Kelley has no official status in the military.

From October 2008 to June 2010, Petraeus was commander of the United States Central Command, which is based in Tampa. A 2010 society item from the Tampa Bay Times reveals Jill and her husband Scott were friendly with David and Holly Petraeus, inviting the couple to their home for Tampa Bay's annual Gasparilla Pirate Fest.

Another story from 2007 indicates Jill and Scott Kelley, a surgeon, live in a "regal brick mansion" with their three children at the time, aged 4, 2 and 1. Their home is estimated to be worth $1.37 million. Kelley has a twin sister named Natalie Khawam, a lawyer dedicated to "successfully representing whistleblowers." In 2003, they appeared on a Food Network competition show together. They grew up in Philadelphia, where their Lebanese parents owned a restaurant.

1. It is odd that a 60 year old man

would have "friendships" like this with attractive, younger women and his wife be completely ok with it and clueless.

6. May-be I missed something

Does anyone know why Paula Broadwell was sending threatening e-mails to Jill Kelley? Was there a "love triangle", was Jill Kelley suspected of having an affair with Petraeus too? Looks like Petraeus was quite the player, ya need a score card to keep track. Keeping these 2 beautiful ladies happy, his wife in the dark, and running the CIA, what a guy!

8. sounding to me now that a third party discovered the affair

and attempted some sort of blackmail or intimidation through Kelley.

It's interestingly convoluted. I suppose they may have chosen Kelley
as a venue to avoid a direct approach to Patraeus.
