Katie Hill Divorce

Congresswoman Katie Hill’s husband has filed for divorce, court documents show.

First reported by the tabloid news site The Blast, Kenny Heslep is seeking spousal support from Hill (D-Agua Dulce). The two were married in 2010 and have no children.

According to court documents, Heslep provided a six-page narrative to explain the reasons. These include how he and Hill had decided she would be the breadwinner and he, who admits he has few job skills, would stay home and handle the domestic duties, which include caring for the horse and other animals on their 2.5-acre ranch.

The court documents say Hill told Heslep in June she was leaving him and stopped transferring money into their joint account, leaving no money to feed the animals.


A source told the Gazette that Hill was possibly frustrated at Heslep’s lack of work and inability to find work.

A Hill spokeswoman said there would be no statement regarding this matter.

Upcoming Moffat vs. Wilk Hearing Update

The next hearing in Star Moffatt’s quest to disqualify State Senator Scott Wilk will be August 29th, Moffatt and court documents said.

According to Moffatt, this will be a simple status conference. The case recently was reassigned, so Moffat and Wilk’s attorneys are expected to update the new judge on what is happening.

Moffatt filed suit in 2016 seeking to prevent Wilk (R-Santa Clarita) from running for the Senate because he had been a registered federal lobbyist who had not sat out a year before seeking office, per the state’s government code. Wilk was elected to the Senate in 2016 and is more than halfway through his term.
