Chelsea Clinton’s fairy tale marriage to childhood friend Marc Mezinsky is plagued by rumors of a marital meltdown after reports that Mezinsky quit his posh banker job and took off skiing for three months, leaving Chelsea behind in New York City.
After just six months of marriage, the couple should be still locked in wedded bliss. The fact that they have known each other for so long may mitigate the seriousness of the split.
Still, Mezinsky’s sudden life-changing decision, which doesn’t seem to include his wife, is feeding rumors. The National Enquirer is the latest to report that a “knock-down, drag-out fight” over starting a family led to the split.
Mezinksy’s decision to ditch his job at financial firm G3 Capital and bum around skiing in posh celebrity resort Jackson Hole, Wyoming, has left Chelsea devastated, purported insiders told the tabloid.
Now, Chelsea. 30, is reportedly mulling a marriage annulment, and has gone running back to her parents, former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“Chelsea has asked her mother and dad if they could help her get an annulment,” a close source allegedly claims.
“She’s heartbroken, but she isn’t afraid to end the marriage,” the source said. “She regrets now that she ever married Marc.”
But the newlyweds have responded that their marriage is still solid.
Another “friend” of the family reports, “The happy couple are (sic) happy.”
“Any report suggesting there is trouble in the marriage is absolutely false.”
Mezvinsky, 32 reportedly has no other job lined up. But despite the tough economy he should have no problem finding work with his connections. His mother is former Congressman Marjorie Mezvinsky.
Chelsea, meanwhile, is in the middle of pursuing a PhD at New York University’s Wagner School of Public Service.
The Clinton-Mezvinsky wedding reportedly cost more than $3 million, and the blushing bride wore a stunning Vera Wang dress.
More than 400 family and friends attended the interfaith ceremony.
They started dating in 2005, but have been friends since they were teenagers.
