Petraeus Pal Jill Kelley Also Targeted Steinbrenner Sons

Remember when the Kelleys were all over the news?

And you thought that when David Petraeus quit his job, all the players in that drama would just fade away. Not so fast, the Jill Kelley saga continues to go down a very freaky path.

Just when it appeared the Jill Kelley-David Petraeus mess was behind us, along comes society magazine Town & Country with a profile of Kelley and her twin sister, Natalie Khawam.

And surprise: It's not flattering, focusing on the twins' alleged desire for riches and doing whatever is necessary to be among people of power.

Writer Vicky Ward doesn't talk to Kelley or Khawam, instead getting information from a "distant cousin" – weeks after Kelley was cleared of wrongdoing in a scandal involving Petraeus, the former CIA director whose paramour sent Kelley threatening emails.

"They made up their minds they were going to use men to get money, and they discussed this quite openly in front of the family," cousin Tony Khawam said in the article, "A Four-Star Scandal," in the March issue.

Among the men in their sights, according to Tony Khawam: Hal and Hank Steinbrenner, sons of the late George Steinbrenner, Yankees owner and Tampa philanthropist.

"They'd take trips on the Steinbrenners' plane and brag about how they would split Hal up from his then-wife, Christina — and then the plane would be theirs," he told Ward.

Hal Steinbrenner and his wife at the time did break up, but not because of the Tampa twins.

As a Yankee fan I have to say that George Steinbrenner (if he were alive today) would detest how his sons are running the Yankees since they took over the reins, but apparently they weren't dumb enough to be duped by these con-girl twins. Part of me almost wishes that it happened, but not while the sons were still with their original families.
