At first, the reason for the divorce was kept under wraps, but as time went on, the cat was finally let out of the bag. The divorce came as a result of Lara Logan’s numerous affairs with other men while still married to Jason.


She was alleged to be having romantic affairs with three different men the first being Michael Ware, an Australian CNN correspondent. He was the CNN correspondent that covered the Iraq war. Michael’s marriage had its issues as it broke down owing to the time he spent covering the Iraq war. He last corresponded with CNN in 2009.

Secondly, claims had it that Lara was pregnant with another man’s child who was not her ex-husband’s. The person responsible for the pregnancy was said to be a colleague of hers at work. Aside from the claims of the pregnancy, she was alleged to be seeing another man, Joseph Burkett.

Lara and Joseph Burkett first met in Afghanistan while they were both at work and still legally married to their exes. Their relationship first started off with a fling. They later met in Iraq and took their relationship more seriously. As a result, Lara broke up with Ware, giving her attention to Joseph.

Though they worked in different capacities in the war zone, their love still grew. Lara reported news for CBS from the war front while Joseph was a defense contractor. This strong bond caused a fallout between Ware and Joseph. Meanwhile, at that time, Joseph was still legally married to his wife, Kimberly.

However, a source debunked the claim, stating that Joseph and Kimberly were separated for six months before he met Lara. In 2008, Jason and Lara’s divorce was finalized.
