Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) and his wife of more than a decade are calling it quits.

“It is with great sadness I can confirm that Judith and I are divorcing,” the former presidential candidate said in a statement to The New York Post. The paper was first to report that Judith Giuliani had filed a contested divorce on Wednesday in Manhattan Supreme Court.


“In these divorce situations, you cannot place blame. It is 50/50. There are problems on both sides,” he said. “We will have to divide our properties in New York and Palm Beach.”

The pair tied the knot in 2003, in the third marriage for each. Giuliani, who was mayor at the time, made headlines in 1999 when he met then-Judith Nathan while he was still married to his second wife.
