(Newser) – The third time wasn't the charm for Rudy Giuliani. The former New York City mayor on Wednesday confirmed "with sadness" to Page Six that his third wife, Judith, has filed for divorce in a Manhattan court. It has a quote from him: "We hope to do this as amicably as possible, and hope that people will respect the privacy of our children at this time. In these divorce situations, you cannot place blame, it is 50/50, there are problems on both sides. We will have to divide our properties in New York and Palm Beach." Divvying things up might not be easy: Page Six notes Judith filed a contested divorce, suggesting there might be disagreement over their assets.

The two married in 2003 and have children from their earlier marriages; Judith, 63, had also been married twice previously. The AP reports the 73-year-old Giuliani's marriage to Judith was preceded by a 20-year union with Donna Hanover and a 14-year marriage with second cousin Regina Peruggi before that; that first marriage was annulled. Donald Trump was a guest at the now-divorcing couple's wedding, and Business Insider resurfaces Judith's reported reaction to a "tasteless" joke Giuliani made last month about attending Trump's third wedding along with Hillary Clinton, who he said "actually fit through the door." Axios' sources say Judith shot her husband a "most foul look" as the crowd gasped.
