    Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer and his wife are ending their two-decade marriage.

    Spitzer and his wife, Silda Wall Spitzer, issued a statement late Tuesday announcing the split.

    "We regret that our marital relationship has come to an end," the statement reads.

    The couple then said they will not address the subject further.

    The Spitzers were married in 1987 and have three grown children. They've been living apart for months. 

    Wall Spitzer supported Spitzer's rise from attorney general to governor and stood by his side in 2008 when he resigned after admitting he paid for sex with prostitutes. She did not campaign publicly for him when he attempted a political comeback this year by running for New York City comptroller.

    Spitzer lost his bid for that seat in the Democratic primary.
