The wife of LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa filed for divorce yesterday after nearly 20 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences, the Los Angeles Times reports. The mayor blamed himself for the breakup, but is mum on whether the split was caused by a romantic relationship. 

Villaraigosa is expected to temporarily move out of the mayor's residence, where his wife and two teenage children will remain during a transitional period. Long-time educator Corina Villaraigosa first filed for divorce in 1994 in the wake of revelations that her husband was having an affair. They reconciled after a lengthy separation.
