Jill Kelley is the woman who complained to the FBI about harassing emails from Paula Broadwell, the mistress of former CIA Director David Petraeus.
Jill Kelley, 37, of Tampa, Florida, is a State Department military liaison officer who appears to have a longstanding friendship with David Petraeus, who quit as CIA director in disgrace last week.
She lives in a $1.2million house with her husband Scott Kelley, a surgeon, and their three children.
Jill Kelley told FBI agents that Paula Broadwell, the 40-year-old biographer who has been identified as the ex-CIA boss’ mistress, sent her harassing emails telling her to “back off” David Petraeus.
An online picture album posted by the family talks about meeting David Petraeus at the family’s home.
Jill Kelley works in the Joint Special Operations Command, a section of the U.S. Armed Forces that deals mostly with counter-terrorism.
The Joint Special Ops Command was directly involved in the mission that took out Osama bin Laden and the drone strike that killed radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.
Details of the affair between David Petraeus and Paula Broadwell reportedly came to light during a FBI probe of the emails that she allegedly sent to Jill Kelley.
The new revelation raises the possibility that Paula Broadwell was growing increasingly jealous of a government employee whose job it was to keep in contact with David Petraeus.
Jill Kelley, who feared for her safety, contacted the FBI.
