CNN host Fareed Zakaria’s wife of 21 years, Paula Throckmorton Zakaria, is filing for divorce, citing an “irretrievable breakdown” of their marriage, the New York Post’s Page Six reports.
They briefly separated in 2011. At the time, the Fareed Zakaria GPS host said in a statement, “It’s true that we’re having troubles and I have taken a small apartment a few blocks away, but I still live at our house most days of the week. We’re trying to work things out. Divorce is not on the horizon.”
The couple owns substantial property, including a $3.4 million West 102nd Street townhouse and a $2.1 million country estate in Rhinebeck, NY. However, the Post reports they’re not expected to fight over assets, as she filed an agreement with the divorce case.
