Arthur “Pinch” Sulzberger, Jr. is divorcing his second wife, Gabrielle Greene, after five-and-a-half years of marriage, The Post has learned.
Sulzberger, the 68-year-old, retired publisher of The New York Times, quietly filed to divorce Greene, a 59-year-old financier who did a brief stint as chairman of Whole Foods, on Feb. 4, court records show.
The records were sealed, but they indicated a “contested matrimonial” suit has been filed in New York State Supreme Court. No further details were available, but the couple are due back in court before Judge Douglas Hoffman on Feb. 27, the filing shows.
Greene is the stepmother of current Times publisher Arthur Gregg Sulzberger, who was a son from Pinch’s 33-year marriage to his first wife, Gail Gregg. Pinch and his first wife announced their separation in 2008.
Greene is a partner at Fontis Partners, a Pasadena, California, advisory firm, as well as RC/Fontis, an investment firm targeting “natural food and beverage and personal care” companies, which is “nearly wound down” and “no longer making investments,” according to the firms’ website, which lists Greene as “Gabrielle Sulzberger.”
Following his split with Gail Gregg, pinch took up with a new girlfriend, Claudia Gonzalez, a Mexican-born philanthropist who, according to reports, may have played a role in the ouster of former Times CEO Janet Robinson in 2011.
Sulzberger and Gonzalez apparently split sometime in 2012. Pinch then debuted Greene as his new girlfriend at a gala New York Times party in June 2013.
They were wed in a ceremony at the Outermost Inn in Martha’s Vineyard on Aug. 30, 2014, according to their wedding announcement in the Times, which said that the bride, who had also been married previously, planned to take her husband’s name.
