Anne McClain responded to accusations of stealing her estranged wife's identity on Twitter Saturday afternoon.
"There is no truth to these claims," he wrote. "We are going through a painful, personal separation that is unfortunately in the media."
These claims are absurd. We are going through a painful, personal separation now unfortunately. I appreciate the outpouring of support and reserve feedback until the investigation is over. I have total confidence in the IG process.

NASA astronaut and Spokane native, Anne McClain is accused of stealing the identity of her estranged husband on McClain's access to his bank account while in space.
According to Fox News, former Air Force intelligence officer Summer Worden has been involved in a bitter divorce with Anne McClain since 2018 and the fight was hot when a complaint was filed with the Federal Trade Commission because on McClain's access to his account while in orbit.
Worden told the Times that he discovered this when McClain learned about his private spending while on a mission that there was no other way of knowing. The bank told Worden a computer registered with NASA had logged into the account.
McClain has denied the allegations saying he regularly checks family finances to ensure that there is sufficient funds to pay for pills for their child.
