As we previously reported
, Gov. Jim Gibbons (R-NV) has been going through a very messy divorce
with the First Lady, Dawn Gibbons.
Two weeks ago, Dawn made not-so-veiled threats
to implicate the governor in one or more scandals by opening their divorce proceedings to the public.
But in a joint statement released today from Gov. Gibbons and Dawn Gibbons' attorneys, it seems that the future-former First Lady has had a change of heart:
JOINT STATEMENT BY COUNSEL
The Governor and The First Lady have entered into an agreement to suspend litigation activities in an attempt to resolve issues regarding the divorce action filed by the Governor. While they are in negotiations, no court documents will be filed.
The First Lady has agreed to move to the guest house on the Mansion grounds and the Governor shall reside in the Mansion.
The Governor and the First Lady will share the Public Areas of the Mansion for their respective Public Duties with their respective staff coordinating the scheduling with each other.
The parties have agreed that there will be no further Public comment from either side while the parties attempt to resolve issues related to the divorce action.
