CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour and her husband of 20 years Jamie Rubin are getting a divorce.
People reports that 60-year-old Christiane and 58-year-old Jamie, who have an 18-year-old son, remain close friends as the divorce is an amicable one.
The two got married in August 1998 in Bracciano, Italy, after meeting a year earlier.
Christiane, 60, the host of CNN’s global affairs show “Amanpour,” lives in London and recently took over Charlie Rose’s slot after the anchorman was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women.
Jamie, 58, a former journalist and Bill Clinton-era assistant secretary of state for public affairs, recently moved to Washington, where he is writing and consulting for lobbying firm Ballard Partners.
Christiane called Jamie a “true hero” while talking to Oprah Winfrey, and told her how he moved to London to be with her and care for their son Darius, saying: “Jamie is the poster child for good husbands.”
Their swanky wedding was attended by John F. Kennedy Jr. and wife Carolyn, diplomat Richard Holbrooke, Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal and former Deputy National Security Adviser James Steinberg.
