Michael Bloomberg is locked in a heated war of words with President Trump as the former NYC Mayor vies for the Democratic candidacy in the 2020 presidential race. Bloomberg’s race for the White House has shifted the focus onto his very public life. He’s been in a relationship Diane Taylor for two decades, and she has served as the unofficial First Lady of New York City. But in the past, Bloomberg was married to Susan Brown, who is the mother of their two daughters. Brown was notoriously private, and the life of the wife of a billionaire businessman-turned-politician was not for her. They are said to remain very good friends, but she prefers to stay out of the spotlight. Our Susan Brown wiki elaborates more on the woman who was once married to Michael Bloomberg.

Brown and Bloomberg Married in 1976
Susan Brown had previously been married to one Charles Henry Meyer in her home country. After their divorce, she came to New York, where she lived at the historic Barbizon Plaza Hotel, a female-only hotel on Manhattan’s East Side.
In New York, a mutual friend introduced Brown and Michael Bloomberg. It’s unclear how long they were together before they married.
Bloomberg was 34 and Brown was 28 when they married on December 15, 1976. The famed Rabbi David M. Posner performed the ceremony in Temple Emanu‐EL.

In early February 2020, it was revealed that Emma had quietly divorced Frissora. She remarried to Jeremiah Kittredge, the disgraced charter school advocate, and they kept their marriage a secret for a year until Michael Bloomberg announced his bid for the presidency.
Brown and Bloomberg Divorced in 1993
The 2009 book Mike Bloomberg: Money, Power, Politics, by Joyce Purnick, said that Brown initiated divorce proceedings in 1993, after 17 years of marriage.
“I was the one who pushed for a divorce because he was working all hours of the day and night, and I was in a country that wasn’t my own and very lonely,” Brown was quoted in the book from an old interview.
Their children stated that their parents weren’t compatible. Brown preferred to preserve her privacy and not be social all the time.
Their divorce was amicable, and Bloomberg has stated that his ex-wife is his “best friend.” Reports claim that the family shared the same house for months after Susan and Michael split. Brown even reportedly moved in with Bloomberg and their daughters temporarily when one of her later relationships ended.
Brown has celebrated holidays with Bloomberg, their daughters, and Diane Taylor. She’s also been present on her ex-husband’s campaigns.
