Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer and his wife, Silda Wall Spitzer, have announced plans to end their marriage.

The couple released a statement Tuesday reading, "We regret that our marital relationship has come to an end," NBC 4 in New York reports.

The couple said they will not address the subject further, the station said.

They were married in 1987 and have three grown children. Mrs. Spitzer was by his side as he was elected state attorney general and governor, and she attended a press conference with him after he admitted to paying for sex with prostitutes in 2008. That scandal forced him to resign his office.

After hosting a failed talk show on MSNBC,  Spitzer re-entered politics this year, running for New York comptroller. He lost in the Democratic primary.

His wife did not campaign for him, as the couple reportedly had been living apart for months.

The New York Daily News reported  just a day before the divorce announcement that Spitzer is dating Lis Smith, the spokeswoman for New York Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio.
