The 49-year-old co-host of “The Five” on Fox News is allegedly leaving the spot and Fox News after more than a decade at the network.

The network confirmed in a statement late Friday, “FOX News has parted ways with Kimberly Guilfoyle.”

Vanity Fair writer Gabriel Sherman tweeted the information on Friday, citing “three sources” who were briefed on the matter.

John Santucci of ABC News also tweeted that Guilfoyle would be joining America First.

CNN reported that Guilfoyle was leaving FOX to hit the campaign trail with Don Jr. But then again, that’s CNN:

This is not the first time rumors of Guilfoyle’s departure from Fox to join the Trump team have surfaced. Shortly after former WH Press Secretary Sean Spicer was on the outs, Kimberly Guilfoyle’s name came up as a replacement.

Guilfoyle had told Politico last year that there were “conversations” with the White House about her stepping in as the next press secretary, saying it would be “an honor” to serve the country on the White House communications team.

But Fox News squashed the rumor in a statement about Guilfoyle’s contract.

“Kimberly is a valued member of the Fox News prime-time lineup, and is under a long-term contract with the network,” a Fox News representative said.

The reports of the Fox News host leaving the network come just four months after it was revealed that she was dating the son of President Donald Trump.

Guilfoyle, who was married to Democratic mayor of San Francisco, Gavin Newsom, revealed in an interview with Breitbart Radio earlier this month that she believes her new boyfriend will one day be president – and she will be first lady as she thinks he will ask her to marry him.

Guilfoyle, a former San Francisco and Los Angeles prosecutor, has been with Fox News since 2005.

Fox News did not respond to a request for comment about Guilfoyle’s rumored departure, according to the Daily Mail.
