Chelsea Clinton's Summer Wedding Will Be Gore-Free
By PopEater Staff Posted Jul 2nd 2010 08:06AM
The news broke on Thursday that former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton will tie the knot with fiance Marc Mezvinsky in upstate New York on July 31. The guest list will likely be massive and include dignitaries and celebrities, but you can count two ol' friends out: Al and Tipper Gore.
"The Gores are not attending the wedding," family spokeswoman Kalee Kreider told the New York Daily News. "They both wish Chelsea well, believe she is a wonderful young woman, and they share in the family's excitement."
As the Gores recently split up after 40 years of marriage, their absence isn't a huge surprise. And with the former vice president now dealing with allegations he sexually assaulted a massage therapist in Oregon, staying away from the Clinton wedding only seems like the prudent thing to do.
But were they even invited? Kreider declined to divulge that information to the News, but in an interview with The Daily Beast back in December, Gore said he had just told his old boss, Bill Clinton, that he was "looking forward to Chelsea's wedding."
The AP reported on Thursday that Clinton and Mezvinsky, an investment banker, will wed at a private mansion just outside Rhinebeck, NY, about two hours north of New York City.
