"We've never been separated, we're not separated now and there is no divorce," Rangel said in a statement about his relationship with his wife Alma, to whom he has been married for 42 years, the New York Daily News reported Saturday.
Rangel, 78, who filed for divorce in February 2007, has been plagued by recent revelations he failed to report $75,000 in rental income from a waterfront villa in the Dominican Republic.
That and a brouhaha over Rangel's four rent-stabilized apartments in a Harlem building have led to Republican calls for Rangel to resign from the influential House Ways and Means Committee.
