Christine Beatty

Brian Merlos

It reads like a “Gossip Girl” novel: two secret lovers texting romantic messages to each other, planning sexual trysts and thinking they’re being oh-so-stealthy. The only difference is they aren’t 15 year olds.Beatty, former chief of staff to Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, resigned after a series of text messages revealed that they had been having an affair, which they both denied last summer. With her $140,000 job gone, a law school degree to complete and two kids from a previous marriage, Beatty’s life certainly isn’t getting any easier. If only she could have known how tragically perceptive she was in this 2002 textmessage to Kilpatrick: “So we are officially busted! LOL”
