Omarosa Manigault was supposed to get married on March 25, but she has had to postpone the ceremony after she and her husband-to-be have received death threats in addition to backlash from the church he oversees, The Sanctuary @ Mt. Calvary in Jacksonville, Florida.
Omarosa, who serves as the Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison for President Donald Trump, has not only postponed but moved the wedding to Washington, D.C., because of safety concerns. The ceremony will now take place on April 8 at an undisclosed location.
“She is really concerned about her safety. There have been calls, emails and social media messages from people threatening to do harm to her and she feared that she wouldn’t be protected adequately at his church in Jacksonville. So she pushed the date back and made the change,” a source close to Omarosa told DailyMail.com.
The source added that invited guests would be required to submit to background checks, adding, “Since she moved the wedding to D.C., she’s invited President Trump and other senior level White House executives in an effort to make sure the secret service and extra security will be there.”
The two soon-to-be-newlyweds have also faced backlash from the church.
“Pastor Newman is a staunch Democrat. He was even a spiritual adviser on the committee of ministers working on Hillary Clinton‘s election campaign. His church membership doesn’t like the idea of their pastor marrying this Trump advocate who bashed President Barack Obama and believe Pastor Newman is using poor judgment by becoming her husband,” a member of the church told DailyMail.com.
Omarosa has been turning over the worst of the threats against her to White House security.
