All Issues Settled For Eliot Spitzer’s Divorce From Wife

Eliot Spitzer Big DL

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer and his wife, Silda Wall Spitzer, have resolved all issues as they part ways after 26 years of marriage, a spokeswoman said Wednesday.

Spokeswoman Lisa Linden issued a statement Wednesday saying their breakup is “uncontested.”

The statement came after reports the couple filed divorce papers in state Supreme Court in Manhattan. Linden would not comment on whether papers had been filed.

Court records do not show a divorce filing in the Spitzers’ names. Divorces can be filed anonymously.

The couple announced last month that they were splitting up. They had been married since 1987 and have three grown daughters.

Spitzer, 54, had to resign as governor in 2008 after it was revealed he was “Client 9″ in a high-priced call girl ring.

Wall Spitzer stood by her husband’s side in 2008 when he resigned, but she largely stepped out of the public eye after that.

Recently, Spitzer has been romantically linked to Lis Smith, 31, who recently left a post for Mayor Bill de Blasio’s campaign and transition team.

The pair met when Smith served as his press secretary during his failed primary run for city comptroller.

He sought a comeback for elected office in that race, but was edged out by Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, 52 percent to 48 percent.
