Zac Goldsmith files for divorce days after becoming MP

Monday May 10, 2010

While becoming an MP is sure to alter most people's lives in one way or the other, Zac Goldsmith is already undergoing a massive change.

The son of the late billionaire Sir James Goldsmith has filed for divorce from his estranged wife, four days after he became a Tory MP.

The 35-year-old defeated the LibDem MP in Richmond Park, London, following Thursday's election.

"Following their separation, Zac and Sheherazade are proceeding towards an amicable divorce, which reflects the best interests of all parties," Zac's spokesperson says.

"There will be no further comment."

Zac and Sheherazade were married for ten years and have three children together.
