New Zealand broadcaster Tony Veitch has confirmed he has ended his marriage with Lisa Bryan.
The pair married in January 2015 at at Mangere Kelliher Estate on Puketutu Island, which was attended by Veitch’s friends Kay Gregory, former television host, and newsreader Eric Young, who was also the MC.
In a statement following speculation by the media, Veitch and Bryan issued a joint statement: “We confirm that we have separated. We continue to respect each other and remain friends. We have no further comment.”
The NZME radio host also added that it has been an emotional time for he and his former-wife and that their lawyers are handling their assets.
“It’s been a terribly difficult time. It’s been desperately sad,” he said in an interview on Friday.
“It happened, neither of us wanted it to happen.
“Stuff is in trusts. It needs to be removed from trusts. My lawyers are going through it with her lawyers.”
