John Edwards, wife separate, source says


Elizabeth and John Edwards, on the campaign trail in January 2008  in  Ames, Iowa, are separating, says a source close to her.


After meeting the love child that rocked her 32-year marriage to one-time presidential candidate John Edwards, Elizabeth Edwards has had enough.

“She said, ‘I’ve had it. I can’t do this. I want my life back,’ ” her sister, Nancy Anania, tells PEOPLE in the latest cover story. Last December, Elizabeth met the 23-month-old Frances Quinn Hunter – the baby John fathered with mistress Rielle Hunter – in a mediated visit at a North Carolina hotel.

The couple now occupy separate residences; she in their Chapel Hill mansion, while he divides time between an annex they call “the barn” and their beach house 160 miles away. Elizabeth, who is still undergoing cancer treatment, has had divorce papers at the ready for a year. Whether or not she files likely depends on her health, a source says.
