Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie to divorce

Philadelphia Eagles owners Jeffrey and Christina Weiss Lurie are getting divorced, a team spokesman confirmed to on Wednesday.

The split won't disrupt ownership or franchise operations, the Luries told employees in a letter obtained by The Philadelphia Inquirer.

The Luries were married 20 years ago and have owned the Eagles together since 1994. Jeffrey Lurie also serves as chairman and chief executive officer of the franchise. Christina Lurie is the president of Eagles Youth Partnership, a charitable foundation.

The letter said Jeffrey, 60, and Christina, 52, would "continue to work together as partners," according to The Inquirer. They did not give a reason for the divorce.

Jeffrey and Christina have long been involved together in film production. They are the executive producers of "Inside Job," which won the 2010 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.
