Former New York governor Eliot Spitzer and his wife Silda Wall Spitzer have split, according to a Dec. 24 Associated Press report. The couple, who wed in 1987, announced on Tuesday that their marriage was over, and that no more public details were forthcoming.

“We regret that our marital relationship has come to an end and we have agreed not to make any other public statement on this subject,” the couple announced late Tuesday.

The Spitzer’s split and imminent divorce is not news to those close to the couple.

ABC News reports that former governor Spitzer and his wife have been living apart for months, now. While she stood by his side in 2008 when he resigned after admitting to hiring prostitutes for sex, Silda Wall did not campaign for him in his recent attempted political comeback.

Silda Wall and Spitzer have three grown children. The former corporate lawyer opted for the business world, as has stayed out of the public eye since her husband’s embarrassing prostitution scandal five years ago.
