New York, Sept 30: Former governor of New York David Paterson and his wife, Michelle Paige, have separated after 19 years of marriage, it has been revealed.
Paterson’s rep, Sean Darcy, has confirmed that the couple – who both admitted to past affairs when he took office – have parted ways, adding that their decision is “mutual and amicable” but giving no further comment on the breakup, the New York Post reported.
According to a source, the two had actually been “separated for some months” and that Paterson, 58, had moved out of the Harlem home he shared with Michelle, 51.
Paterson has been spotted out and about at various social events around town.
“He’s been charming and flirtatious” with the fairer sex, a source said, adding that the former politician has been spotted “passing along his private number” to a few ladies.
Paterson has weathered accusations of extramarital affairs, which he has strongly denied.
A source close to the couple insists there’s no third party involved with their split. (ANI)
