Gov. Andrew Cuomo and longtime partner Sandra Lee have called it quits — confirming a split The Post reported was coming months ago.
“Over the recent past, we have realized that our lives have gone in different directions and our romantic relationship has turned into a deep friendship,” the now-former couple said in a joint statement on Wednesday.
“We will always be family and are fully supportive of each other and dedicated to the girls,” they added, referring to Cuomo’s three daughters from his marriage to Kerry Kennedy. “Our personal lives remain personal and there will be no further comment.”
A source added that Cuomo, 61, and Lee, a 53-year-old Food Network star, have told friends over the past several weeks that they were no longer together.
The Post exclusively reported in May that Cuomo and Lee were living separately, but Cuomo insisted at the time that they were still an item.
