Life has not been easy for Gayle King, who caught her husband cheating on her 26 years ago. Did King know who her now ex-husband’s mistress was all along?


After years of staying in the dark and letting his wife deal with all the heat that the media directed at her, Gayle King’s ex-husband, Connecticut Assistant Attorney General William Bumpus, has finally spoken out, apologizing for all that went down ages ago.

The apology comes 26 years too late and after the King opened up, in a Vanity Fair interview, about her past marriage of 11 years to Bumpus, and how it all went up in flames on “on June 24, 1990, at 9:16 p.m.” when she discovered “the woman who I caught naked with my now ex-husband”.

Following his ex-wife’s rather frank interview William Bumpus, stepped up to the plate and issued a public apology via Page Six, stating that he had always been “haunted” by his past deeds and “though I have dealt with this privately . . . I publicly apologize for the major transgression that dramatically changed all of our lives.”

He also went on to praise Gayle for handling the entire affair gracefully and letting him be involved in their children’s life post-cheating drama. Bumpus called the CBS co-anchor “a great wife, an excellent mother and a fantastic co-parent.”

Gayle King has mostly refrained from revealing any details about how her marriage broke apart, except for the one rare episode where she was interviewing Will Smith back in 2006, reports PEOPLE.

Gayle King Caught Cheating Husband

“I was married to a cheater,” King had blatantly said. “I went to marital counseling. I have been divorced since 1993, so I’m all healed and everything. I have worked it out. I’m not bitter. I’m okay. I’m really okay.”

After her ex-husband’s apology, King was approached with the question of who Bumpus’ mistress was.

Instead of specified any particular name, King simply replied, “She knows her name!”

Does this mean Gayle King knows the identity of the mystery woman she caught her ex-husband’s with?
