Her post came just a short while after Nashville's Tennessean newspaper broke the news that Barry pleaded guilty on Tuesday morning to felony theft of property of over $10,000 in relation to her recently revealed affair with her former police bodyguard, Sgt. Rob Forrest.

The telegenic former chief executive of country music's hometown was booked Tuesday before she pleaded guilty to misappropriating more than $10,000 in city funds to carry on her scandalous affair with Robert Forrest, who supervised the mayor's security detail.

Barry graduated from Notre Dame de Sion and her mother lives in Overland Park.

On Jan. 31, she admitted a almost two-year extramarital affair with police Sgt. Rob Forrest, who is now retired, in the wake of multiple investigations.

She will reimburse the amount of money to the capital city of the USA southern state of Tennessee and will be on probation for three years. Records show the couple separated the day following Barry's admission of the affair.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation had been investigating Barry's relationship with Forrest since the married mayor confirmed this year the two had an affair in 2016.

In a sign of softening rhetoric, Mr Trump tweeted on Tuesday morning: "Possible progress being made in talks with North Korea". He said that without progress in North Korea's denuclearization, inter-Korean dialogue can not take place.


"While my time today as your mayor concludes, my unwavering love and honest affection for this wonderful city and its great people will never come to an end", she said at a news conference shortly after she appeared before a judge and pleaded guilty.

Her resignation means that Vice Mayor David Briley will be sworn as mayor, according to a report of The Tennessean, part of the USA Today Network. Authorities found two nude or partially nude photos of a woman that were taken by Forrest's phone while he was on duty. A special election to choose a new mayor will be held August 2.

She concluded: "God bless this wonderful city". And I'm going to have several more bad days. "I felt safer as an artist in Nashville". She was the point person for a $5.4 billion transit plan that Nashville voters will consider in a referendum in May.

Barry has served as the mayor of Nashville since September 2015.

In January, Barry said she and Forrest are no longer seeing each other. It also shined a light on overtime that Forrest was accruing. Forest pleaded guilty to a similar charge, and also received three years of probation. In her resignation letter, she called her experience as mayor the "honor of a lifetime". "That work will be transparent and be conducted with every effort to restore public trust, and move our great city forward".
