Bill de Blasio is back on the market. Former New York City mayor and his ex-wife Chirlane McCray have announced their separation from him after 30 years of marriage.
McCray and de Blasio announced their separation in a joint interview with The New York Times On Wednesday.
The couple said they had a heart-to-heart talk about two months ago and discovered they were no longer “lovey-dovey.”
McCray and de Blasio pictured with their children, Dante de Blasio and Chiara de Blasio, at the New York Pride parade in 2015.
McCray and de Blasio said they are looking forward to moving forward with others.
“I just want to have fun,” said McCray, who was a lifelong lesbian when they met.
They said their marriage began to unravel in 2020 during his run for the White House.
“I thought it was a distraction,” McCray said of de Blasio’s disastrous presidential campaign.
De Blasio, 62, admitted he had second and third thoughts about marrying a reformed lesbian.
“There was a part of me that sometimes said, ‘Hmmm, is this like a time bomb? Is it something you will regret later? So I always lived with those things.”
