Some sad news this morning with the report that Al Gore and his wife Tipper have called it quits after 40 years of marriage.

Website Politico received an email from the famous couple declaring their separation. Apparently, they thought it best to reveal the information themselves, rather than have it divulged through other channels. From the site,

In an “Email from Al and Tipper Gore,” the couple said: “We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate.

“This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration. We ask for respect for our privacy and that of our family, and we do not intend to comment further.”

Gore’s press official, Kalee Kreider, confirmed the information in the email as legit.

More as we get it…
