Barack Obama intended to get in a relationship with the different woman twice before meeting Michelle. He even kept on meeting those woman for the first year of his relationship with FLOTUS.
Sheila Miyoshi Jager is almost totally dropped from Obama's memoir, Dreams of My Father, where she is utterly merged with his other white exes into one character.
But according to the Rising Star, by David J. Garrow, Jager acted a significant role in Obama's teenage years. So much so that despite after Barack met his wife-to-be Michelle, he kept noticing Jager on and off for at least a year, claims the book.
Let's have a look!
The Rising Star book claims that Barack Obama (left) intended to marry Sheila Miyoshi Jager (right) ahead of meeting Michelle.
The couple [Obama - Jager] were pretty much in love in the mid-1980s when they were living together in Chicago, according to Jager.
Their connection soon advanced, and in the winter of 1986, while revisiting his girlfriend's progenitors, Barack rose the subject of marrying her, says Jager to Garrow.
But Jager's parent denied the relationship saying Jager is only 23 years old, and Obama is still 25.
Both of them remained together for a long time. However, the book also claims that Barack continued to live with Sheila Miyoshi Jager before meeting Michelle, which happened around in the late 1980s.
Now 53, the associate professor of Oberlin College in Ohio told the author of the book that,
"I remember very distinctly when this transformation happened, and I remember very specifically that by 1987, about a year into our relationship, he already had his sights on becoming president."
It is also mentioned in the book that Obama probably thought that being connected to Jager may harm his 'African-American' identity. He understood that it might ruin his aim of becoming the US President.
By the time he was leaving the Harvard Law School, his relationship with the Jager was on the rocks. Unable to decide what to do, Barack Obama once again thought of proposing Jager for last time, and she turned him down again.
She believed that this second proposal from Obama came because he was feeling guilty of their separation. Obama then went to a law school, there he met Michelle, and both of them fell for each other.
Soon they started dating each other and finally got married in the year 1992. The Obamas have not authenticated the information mentioned in the book. Also, this isn't the first time when his exes have been laid on the public bed for discussions.
