Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer has announced that his marriage to wife Silda Wall Spitzer has come to an end, according to both The New York Daily News and The New York Post.

The news was announced jointly by the couple through Spitzer's spokesperson Lisa Linden.

"We regret that our marital relationship has come to an end and we have agreed not to make any other public statement on this subject," read the announcement.

The split comes on the heels of a report on Sunday in The New York Post's Page Six that the former candidate for New York City Comptroller was seen at the apartment of Lis Smith, his former spokesperson who is now the communications director for mayor-elect Bill de Blasio.

Spitzer resigned from the New York governorship in 2008 amidst a high-profile prostitution scandal.

The politician had a brief stint co-hosting the CNN program "In The Arena," and he later hosted the Current TV talk show "Viewpoint".

He went on to run for New York City Comptroller this year, ultimately losing to Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer. Notably, Spitzer's wife Silda did not join him on the campaign trail.
