Al Gore’s Daughter Karenna Gore Announces Separation from Husband

One week after Al Gore and wife Tipper Gore announced they are seperating, their daughter, Karenna Gore, has also declared she has seperated from Drew Schiff, her husband of 12 years.

Like parents, like daughter, we guess. Former vice-president Al Gore and wife Tipper Gore declared last week they are seperating after 40 years of marriage. Now daughter Kerenna Gore has also come out to confirm she has split from husband Drew Schiff.

According to People.com, 36-year-old Gore and 44-year-old Schiff “have been seperated for a couple of months and in marriage counseling.” The sources quoted spoke anonymously to the tabloid because they were not authorized by the couple to disclose information. Reps for the Gore family have said they will not be commenting any further on the story.

The couple lives in New York City and have three children together, 10-year-old Wyatt, 8-year-old Anna and 3-year-old Oscar.

Karenna Gore Schiff is the oldest child of Al and Tipper Gore and has worked as an attorney and journalist. She is also the author of the biography Lighting The Way: Nine Women Who Changed Modern America in 2006.

Al and Tipper Gore made the announcement of their separation in an e-mail sent out oto friends and family.

“We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate,” the e-mail stated. “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.”

The e-mail announcing the separation was obtained and published by Politico.com. A representative for the couple confirmed the split. The seperation is shocking even to those close to the family. “I’m shocked — beyond shocked,” close friend Chris Downey told the Washington Post. “This is the least likely course of events I could imagine.”

Al and Tipper Gore have long been known for being an extremely ‘affectionate’ couple – even in the most public of venues. Check out this infamous video of them kissing at the 2000 Democratic National Convention:

 

Tipper and Al Gore, who met while they were in high school, celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary just two weeks ago. They have four children together and three grandchildren.
