Michelle Obama contemplated divorcing Barack Obama in 2000 after he ignored her advice not to run for a House seat in Chicago, making him so "depressed" that friends feared he might commit suicide, says a new book.
According to the book, Michelle prepared divorce papers in 2000 following Barack's disastrous attempt to win a House seat in Chicago - in fact, as she was upset that he ignored her advice not to take on the four-term incumbent Bobby Rush.
Their marriage - in its eighth year at the time - was "on the rocks" with Barack so depressed some of his friends feared he was suicidal, author Edward Klein has claimed in his book, titled 'The Amateur'.
