Reason for Divorce
Cuomo and Kennedy were married for thirteen long years with three kids and they have to end their marriage. So, what happened?
Andrew Cuomo tried to show that his splitting up with wife Kerry Kennedy was amicable but that’s not reality. Actually the divorce was severe and somehow hostile. This divorce resulted all the Kennedy Clan hate Cuomo and vice-versa. In fact Cuomo never liked the Kennedy’s.
Andrew and Kerry had talked about divorce; Kerry actually wanted the divorce to happen but Andrew thought he could fix it. Kerry later filed for divorce and Cuomo knew it from a call from a reporter. The divorce was really acrimonious.
One of the reason for their divorce was the disdain that Andrew Cuomo had for his in-laws and vice-versa. He never liked the gatherings of Kennedy family and he was considered as Bully by the Kennedy Clan. Once in the party in Manhattan which was informal launch of Cuomo’s governor campaign the song “Sympathy for the Devil” was played which was about assassination of Kennedy brothers. All Kennedy believed that it was Cuomo’s decision to play that song.
The other reason is that Cuomo never liked the friend circle of Kerry and her cooking, cleaning and the dressing sense. Their relation was already in chaos in 2002 but Kerry decided to stay with Cuomo till his campaign. The 2002 campaign was failed and Andrew again requested her to stay for some time.
Andrew Cuomo had once confronted Kerry of extra marital affair and that was the breaking point for her. Kerry was the one who told the kids about their divorce. Their fight didn’t end after divorce. After their separation they were again fighting and blaming each other on child support money. The battle was nasty. Kennedy Clan were still doubting that Cuomo was using their name in order to benefit.
