NY newspaper: RFK Jr. filed for divorce in May
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- A New York newspaper says Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has filed for divorce from his wife of 16 years.
The Journal News, citing Westchester County clerk records, said on its website Tuesday that the filing came on May 12. That's three days before Kennedy's wife, Mary Richardson Kennedy, was charged with drunken driving.
Calls to Kennedy and to Mary Kennedy's attorney were not immediately returned. The Journal News quoted Kennedy as saying, "I'm not going to talk to you about my personal life."
Kennedy, a prominent environmentalist, is the son of assassinated Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of assassinated President John F. Kennedy.
His wife was arrested May 15 after a police officer reported seeing her drive her car over a curb near their Bedford home.
