Just last week, the designer and her husband of 23 years, Arthur Becker, announced their separation, but the president of Wang’s company, Mario Grauso, passed off the split as amicable.
Just last week representatives for the designer released a statement, revealing that Wang was planning on divorcing her husband of 23 years.
"Vera Wang and Arthur Becker have mutually and amicably agreed to separate.
"They remain devoted parents to their daughters." A friend of the designer's, who asked not to be identified, told WWD: "They will not let this impact the running of the company.
They have worked too hard to build it up." The couple has two grown-up daughters, Cecilia and Josephine.
"I was the girl who nobody thought would ever get married," she told New York magazine in 2006.
"I was going to be a fashion nun the rest of my life.
The Daily News finishes off its report with several more details, including, “Lysacek has been spotted in a white Bentley and with a large, flashy Rolex recently,” and that it’s “common knowledge” Wang got a face-lift in San Francisco two months ago (“Again, a spokeswoman for Wang had no comment”).
Over the past week, many unnamed 'sources' have come forward, telling the New York Post that the couple 'used to fight all the time in public, even at dinner.
The source says the 63-year-old fashionista offered Lysacek the opportunity “to stay there for a while.” The status of their current relationship, however, is unclear even to those closest to them.
There is “something going on,” says the source, while a second insider says Wang is “just enamoured [sic] with him and enjoys his company,” and doesn’t think a sexual relationship is in the cards. Well, Wang and Lysacek are old friends, having worked together in 20 on several of his skating outfits.
During high school, Lysacek was a member of the honor roll, where he earned a number of academic achievement awards, including the Presidential Award for Academic Excellence in 1999.
