Salman Rushdie, Padma Lakshmi to split, says author's spokeswoman

News of split comes two weeks after he was awarded controversial knighthood


NEW YORK (Reuters) -- British author Salman Rushdie and his wife Padma Lakshmi, host of TV show "Top Chef," are getting divorced, his spokeswoman has said, just two weeks after he was awarded a controversial knighthood.


Salman Rushdie married Padma Lakshmi, a former model born in 1970 in India, in 2004.

Rushdie, 60, is best known for his novel "The Satanic Verses," which outraged many Muslims and sparked death threats that forced him to live in hiding for nine years.

He married Lakshmi, a former model born in 1970 in India, in 2004. She was his fourth wife and the couple had no children.

"Salman Rushdie has agreed to divorce his wife, Padma Lakshmi, because of her desire to end their marriage," spokeswoman Jin Auh said Monday in a statement on his behalf.

"He asks that the media respect his privacy at this difficult time," the statement said.

Rushdie hit the headlines two weeks ago when he was selected for knighthood by Britain's Queen Elizabeth, provoking renewed anger among some Muslims in Iran and Pakistan.

When the Indian-born Rushdie started his romance with the model more than 20 years his junior, the British tabloids made much of their differences in age and intellectual stature.

But Rushdie always defended his wife.

"Anyone who's met Padma knows she's as intelligent as they come," he told The Times of London in a 2005 interview. "But, you know, it's not supposed to be permitted to be gorgeous and really smart and also very nice."

"It feels very odd to see newspaper articles saying 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'Why Do Beautiful Women Love Ugly Men?'" he said in the interview. "But at this stage, I'm kind of resigned to it at -- as you say -- pushing 60."

Rushdie shot to fame in 1981 when his second novel, "Midnight's Children," a magic-realist exploration of Indian history, won the Booker Prize.

The late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Iran's supreme religious leader, pronounced a fatwa, or religious edict in 1989 that called on Muslims to kill Rushdie because of perceived blasphemy in his fourth novel, "The Satanic Verses."

Lakshmi started her career as a model and has since acted in movies and television shows and written cookbooks. She hosts the U.S. cooking show "Top Chef" on the Bravo cable network. E-mail to a friend

Yes but I would think the threat of being blown away by crazy muslim extremists would trump HIS money card.

I thought they lifted the hit on him-if they did they should start again-the guy just gets on my nerves for some reason.

The government officially lifted the ban but the "muslims" did not; he still lives under the threat.

With Rush in his name you would think I would like him-but he has a stoopid fish first name and made millions off a lame ass book.

His women was hot though.
