Shonna Graham said gender-switch Isla Bryson never mentioned feeling he was in the wrong body.
The Scottish First Minister spoke as the row continued over where Isla Bryson should be imprisoned.
Speaking at First Minister’s Questions at Holyrood Nicola Sturgeon confirmed a risk assessment is being carried out by the Scottish Prison Service, as she stressed Bryson would not be held at Cornton Vale women’s prison near Stirling.
Ms Sturgeon said: “It would not be appropriate for me in respect of any prisoner to give details of where they are being incarcerated.
“But given the understandable public and parliamentary concern in this case I can confirm to parliament that this prisoner will not be incarcerated at Cornton Vale women’s prison.
“I hope that provides assurance to the public.”
Shona, who wed the then Graham in 2016, said yesterday: “His gender transition is a sham for attention and an easier life in prison.
“When I saw the photos of him dressed as a woman in blonde wig and pink lycra leggings I fell out of bed laughing.”
Shonna, of Falkirk, Scotland, who wants a divorce after a short failed marriage, said her husband had been abusive, and locking Bryson up with women was “outrageous”.
She said: “He won’t stop. It’s in his nature.”
