Had you, too, noticed the conspicuous silence of Al Gore amid the month-long mounting public outrage over the BP oil spill? I chalked it up to the recently-announced separation from his wife of 40 years, Tipper. In their joint press release two weeeks ago the couple called the decision, "a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together." But according to the Star Magazine HERE, Al Gore has actually kept a low profile throughout this oil spill debacle because he's been having a two year affair with Laurie David, the former wife of Curb Your Enthusiasm's Larry David.
Laurie David has already denied the affair unequivocally, as have friends of Al Gore. The New York Daily News HERE quotes The National Enquirer attributing the split to Tipper's jealousy. "'Al finally told her their relationship was over because he couldn't stand her jealous rages anymore.' The tabloid weekly said there was no proof the former veep and green idol ever cheated on Tipper, but she suspected him constantly.'I think she's always believed there was something going on between Al and many of the women in his life,' the unnamed insider is quoted as saying."
This article ends by noting that another tabloid, The Globe, reported last week that the Gores' break-up was due to the fact that Al Gore was having a "gay affair."
