"My kids are scared, and need their 'home' back," Kelley wrote in one email to Mayor Bob Buckhorn, The Tampa Bay Times reported Friday.

In another email, Kelley wrote that she, former CIA director Petraeus and Gen. John R. Allen "have been exploited by the media."

"I wouldn't care -- if they got the facts right and the focus was on the criminal that stalked all of us," Kelley wrote, which The Tampa Bay Times reported was a reference to Petraues' mistress Paula Broadwell. "But the truth will one day prevail."

According to reports, Kelley told the FBI she was receiving anonymous threatening emails, which were traced back to Broadwell. Petraeus -- a retired four star general -- resigned Nov. 9, citing the affair.
