Al Gore and Laurie David's cheating rumors end Al's 40 year marriage. The 40 year marriage between Al Gore and Tipper Gore ended just days after the Gores, once college sweethearts, celebrated their anniversary. Just weeks later details of the cause of the split have leaked to the forefront of celebrity gossip.
Star Magazine broke the news that Al had an affair with environmental activist Laurie David. Laurie David is the former wife of "Curb Your Enthusiasm's" Larry David. The Davids' marriage split in 2007 after allegations Laurie cheated on Larry with the caretaker of the couples' Martha's Vineyard Estate, just one year after "An Inconvenient Truth"made its way to the spotlight. Al Gore and Laurie David collaborated on "An Inconvenient Truth" in 2006, with Laurie as co-producer for the environmental documentary.
An insider close to the Gores and the Davids confirmed that as time went on: "Al and Laurie went from friends to lovers. It couldn't be avoided." The insider also reported that Al and Laurie had a two year affair which ultimately cost Al his 40 year marriage to Tipper. Tipper eventually left Al because of her jealousy, as the insider maintained.
The June 28th, 2010 issue of Star includes all of the details. Al and Tipper Gore's representatives have denied the cheating allegations. Laurie David has stepped forward to issue this statement: "The story is completely untrue. It's a total fabrication. I adore both Al and Tipper. I look at them both as family. And I have happily been in a serious relationship since my divorce."
