Disgraced ex-governor Eliot Spitzer and his estranged, long-suffering wife, Silda, confirmed Tuesday night that their marriage is over.
“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 said in a joint statement released by Spitzer spokeswoman Lisa Linden.
The announcement follows the revelation that Spitzer, 54, has been dating former spokeswoman Lis Smith, 31, as documented in exclusive photos published by The Post.
Smith is currently Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio’s chief spokeswoman, but de Blasio has refused to say if he’ll keep her on since the disclosure of her affair with Spitzer.
Page Six exclusively broke the news of the Spitzers living apart in May and reported that Silda planned to divorce him after the election.
