Christine Beatty, mistress of ex-Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, is looking for a new start. So she's reportedly moving to Atlanta, according to the AJC.
Beatty, 39, wants to put some distance between herself and her sordid past as the jump off to the married Kilpatrick. Both Beatty and Kilpatrick served time in prison for lying under oath about their affair. The scandalous affair came to light after a Detroit newspaper published some of the thousands of explicit text messages sent between the lovers.
Beatty has already landed a new consulting job in Atlanta, where she will live with her two daughters, according to Detroit newspapers. Beatty attended Howard University during the time Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed was a student there.
Interestingly enough, I saw Reed shopping at Lenox Square Mall last month, and he was with a woman who closely resembles Beatty.
Studies show that 60% of married men cheat on their wives with co-workers in the work place. Beatty served as Kilpatrick's chief of staff from 2002 to 2008.
