Gayle King’s ex-husband is sorry for cheating on his now ex wife. As previously reported, Gayle revealed in a Vanity Fair interview that years ago, she had caught her now ex in bed with another woman.
I’m not a huge fan of the woman who I caught naked with my now ex-husband on June 24, 1990, at 9:16 p.m. — but I don’t remember the details.
The TV anchor was married to Connecticut Assistant Attorney General William Bumpus for 11 years till 1993. Bumpus is now speaking out, saying just how remorseful he is about the situation. He told Page Six in a statement via a rep, Lisa Nkonoki,
I have been haunted with this life altering choice. Though I have dealt with this privately .?.?. I publicly apologize for the major transgression that dramatically changed all of our lives.
I have nothing but the utmost respect for Gayle and how she handled herself with grace. Despite the situation, she kept our children, as well as my relationship and involvement with them, as a clear priority. Gayle was a great wife, an excellent mother and a fantastic co-parent. I am eternally grateful for all that she has done and continues to do to enrich my life and the lives of our incredible adult children. I continue to be a work in progress and have spent the last 26 years striving to be a better man and father. I applaud Gayle’s continued phenomenal success and friendship!
