Troy Aikman Divorce: Separates From Wife Rhonda

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and Fox football analyst Troy Aikman has separated from his wife Rhonda after a decade of marriage.

"This has been a difficult decision for Rhonda and me, but after 10 years of marriage we have decided to separate. We remain deeply committed to our children and respectfully ask that you honor our family's privacy during this period of adjustment," he said in a statement to The Dallas Morning News.

The Aikmans--who married in 2000--have two daughters together and one from Rhonda's previous marriage.

According to Dallas County records, Rhonda recently purchased a 5-bedroom home near the couple's mansion.

Aikman is slated to be part of the Fox broadcast team for the Super Bowl on Feb 6.
