'Sex and the City' Author Divorces Husband of 9 Years


Charles Askegard, Candace Bushnell


Candace Bushnell who wrote the books the popular TV series was based on said that she appreciated the time she has spent with Charles Askegard.

"Sex and the City" author is quitting her marriage to ballet dancer Charles Askegard after nine years. Candace Bushnell confirmed through her representative that she filed for divorce from her younger husband on Friday, December 2 but remains friends with him.

"We had some wonderful times in our nine-year marriage, and I still care about Charles as a person. I respect his desire to pursue his own happiness and hope that we will continue to be friends in the future," she said in a statement. Meanwhile, Askegard said, "This is a difficult time for me. Although we have sadly grown apart, I will always respect and care about Candace and appreciate the time we spent together."

The split was sniffed back on November 23 when Askegard's Next Ballet performed in New York and Bushnell was a no-show. "This has been coming for a long time," a source told NY Post. "They have been living increasingly separate lives. Candace has been spending more and more time in the country at her house in Connecticut, while Charles has been in the city working. He has been going through a huge career transition."
