Karl Rove Divorce: GOP Strategist Breaks With Wife Darby

Posted: Updated:

Famed Republican strategist Karl Rove got divorced last week, Politico reports.

Spokeswoman Dana Perino said, "Karl Rove and his wife, Darby, were granted a divorce last week. The couple came to the decision mutually and amicably, and they maintain a close relationship and a strong friendship. There will be no further comment and the family requests that its privacy be respected."

Karl married Darby Hickson in 1986. They have one son, Andrew. Rove's previous marriage to a Houston socialite ended after a year.

Actor Randy Quaid recently complained in a letter to a judge that Rove hit on his wife, Evi.

Rove's memoir, "Courage and Consequence," comes out in March 2010.
