Jill Kelley leaves her home Tuesday, Nov 13, 2012 in Tampa, Fla. South Korea will revoke an honorary title given to the American socialite tied to the scandal involving former CIA director David Petraeus.

 

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Lawyers for the Tampa socialite embroiled in the scandal that prompted CIA Director David Petraeus' resignation say she never tried to exploit her friendship with him.

Jill Kelley's lawyers released emails, phone tapes and other material Tuesday that they say back their claim.

The lawyers went on the attack against a businessman who accused Kelley of incompetence while trying to set up a deal he was negotiating with South Korean companies; an attorney who called her a social climber; and the FBI agent who leaked her name in connection to the scandal.

The 37-year-old Kelley became the focus of national media attention earlier this month after it was revealed she received anonymous emails from Paula Broadwell, Petraeus' biographer and mistress. Broadwell allegedly told her to stay away from Petraeus.
