Apple Board member Al Gore to separate from wife Tipper after 40 years of marriage

invisibleSHIELD case for iPadFormer Vice President and Apple Inc. Board of Directors member Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, are separating after 40 years of marriage, according to multiple reports.

“According to an e-mailed statement obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday, the Gores said it was ‘a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration,'” Erik Schelzig reports for The Associated Press.

“Al Gore lost the 2000 presidential election to Republican George W. Bush. He has since campaigned worldwide to draw attention to climate change, which in 2007 led to a Nobel Peace Prize and an Oscar for the documentary ‘An Inconvenient Truth,'” Schelzig reports.

MacDailyNews Note: “An Inconvenient Truth” was based on presentation created by Apple’s Keynote application.

Schelzig continues, “Tipper Gore is known for her advocacy on mental health issues. She became interested partly because her mother suffered from depression. The Gores have four adult children.”

  2. Wow MDN, someone notable actually uses Keynote? You must be so proud. Must we now make a disclaimer whenever an Apple product is used?
