David Petraeus resigned from his post as CIA Director on Friday (November 9, 2012) after confessing to an affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell. The inappropriate relationship was discovered in an FBI investigation sparked when Jill Kelley, a close friend of the Petraeus family, received threatening messages from Petraeus's first mistress Paula. Mrs Broadwell, who was reportedly linked to the disgraced spy chief over several months after writing his biography, saw Jill Kelley as a romantic competitor. The 40-year-old woman then sent a string of harassing emails to Mrs Kelly, warning her to stay away from her 60-year-old guy David Petraeus. In one of the emails, Paula Broadwell accused Jill Kelley of touching him underneath a table and another email asked if her husband Scott Kelly was aware of her actions. Mother of three Jill Kelley feared for her safety and she contacted the FBI to ask for help after that.
