CNN’s Christiane Amanpour divorcing husband of 20 years

Award-winning CNN journalist Christiane Amanpour and husband Jamie Rubin are divorcing after 20 years of marriage, Page Six reports.

The pair’s reason for divorce is yet to be revealed.

Ms Amanpour and Mr Rubin tied the knot in Italy in 1998 after finding romance in Sarajevo.

A source, who spoke to Page Six, says the pair “are still really good friends”.

Ms Amanpour, 60, the host of CNN’s global affairs show “Amanpour,” lives in London and recently took over Charlie Rose’s slot after the anchor was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women.

Mr Rubin, 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.

“Jamie is the poster child for good husbands,” she told Ms Winfrey.

The couple’s 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.
