Yet another high-profile Connecticut couple has decided to part ways.
“This is a shocking, painful turn of events for me, and a personal matter,” said Middleton about the end of the nearly 10-year marriage. Berman had no comment.
The two were highlighted in the February 2012 issue of Connecticut Magazine in a Valentine’s Day, love themed feature titled “How We Met.” According to documents filed in New Haven Superior Court, Middleton filed for the divorce the month before.
The couple married in October, 2002 at Manhattan’s Le Cirque 2000, one of Berman’s clients at the time. The ceremony was reported in the New York Times. Berman, who has an agency in Branford, owned a Manhattan public relations business then.
Over the years, the well-known, gracious couple has been involved in many non-profit galas including Share Our Strength and MS Taste of Hope, as well as various other fundraisers and events.
Word of the split comes on the heels of another power pair parting.
WFSB personality Scot Haney and his partner, Bushnell’s Paul Marte confirmed earlier this week that they are ending their relationship after 19 years.
Marte and Haney were also one of the featured couples in the February Connecticut Magazine piece.
