Karenna Gore & Drew Schiff: Separated, in Counseling

by at . Comments

June is not a good month for marriage if your last name is Gore.

One week after news of an Al and Tipper Gore divorce shocked the political world, it appears as though one of their children's marriage is on the rocks.

Oldest daughter Karenna Gore Schiff has split from her husband of 12 years, Drew Schiff. However, a close family source says "they are not divorced."

Karenna, 36, and Drew, 44, "have been separated for a couple of months and in marriage counseling. It's amicable and they are in therapy together."

Karenna Gore married Drew Schiff in the late 1990s.

The couple, who live in New York City, have three children: Wyatt, 10, Anna, 8, and Oscar, 3. Drew Schiff works for a biotech investment company.

Although Karenna Gore is working on a documentary project, she is primarily "being a mom," the Schiff family friend tells the New York Daily News.

Karenna is looking to her parents for support in these times.

"Both Al and Tipper have been to New York to help Karenna with the kids since her separation," said the family friend. "Like all families, they rally."

Kalee Kreider, a spokeswoman for the former vice president, told People that "Neither the Gores nor the Schiffs plan to comment" on the subject.
