CNN host, Christiane Amanpour divorces husband of 20 years, Jamie Rubin. Amanpour is the Chief International Correspondent for CNN and host of CNN International’s nightly interview program.
The divorce was earlier reported by Washington Post. Jamie, 58, a former journalist and Bill Clinton-era Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs, recently moved to Washington, where he is writing and consulting for lobbyist firm Ballard Partners.
Christiane called Jamie a “true hero” while talking to Oprah Winfrey, and told her how he moved to London to be with her and care for their son Darius, saying: “Jamie is the poster child for good husbands.”
He graduated from Columbia University, from which he also received a master’s degree in international affairs and was a member of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.
