LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said on Friday that he and his third wife, Marta, had mutually decided to end their marriage of 10 years.
A statement issued through Los Angeles-based public relations firm Sitrick and Company said the Limbaughs "have separated pending an amicable resolution." It was not clear whether either party had formally filed for divorce.
A spokesman at Sitrick declined to provide further details.
Limbaugh and his third wife, a former aerobics instructor he met on the Internet, were married in May 1994 at the home of U.S. Supreme Court (news - web sites) Justice Clarence Thomas (news - web sites) in a ceremony officiated by Thomas himself.
His two previous marriages ended in divorce.
Word of Limbaugh's latest marital difficulties come as the outspoken radio personality has come under investigation by prosecutors in Palm Beach County, Florida, where he lives, over allegations of illegal doctor-shopping for painkillers.
Limbaugh, 53, who has not been charged, admitted in October of last year to becoming addicted to prescription painkillers he took for back pain. He took a five-week break from his syndicated radio show to check into a drug rehabilitation center.

Usually I am sympathetic when someone's marriage ends. But in this case-
Rush no longer has any right (if he ever did) to criticise gay marriage until he learns a bit about successful "wedded bliss."
And as for that Marta woman- just how stupid do you have to be to waste a decade of your life married to Rush Limbaugh?
Well, I walk into the room
Passing out hundred dollar bills
And it kills and it thrills like the horns on my Silverado grill
And I buy the bar a double round of crown
And everybody's getting down
And this town ain't never gonna be the same.
Cause I saddle up my horse and I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls, they are so pretty...

Maybe she wasn't so appealing when he got off of drugs.
I feel no sympathy for this fat bastard OxyContin freak.
This was the same fat fuck who was making fun of Jesse Jackson when it was revealed that he had an extramartial affair and a child resulted from that affair (I don't condone extramarital affairs, but at least Jackson could father a child, unlike this fat fuck who is rumored to be impotent).
Rush, instead of worring about blacks like Jackson and Donovan McNabb, worry about trying to keep a woman happy.
