DescriptionMexico City (AP) -- Mexico's ex-first lady Angelica Rivera announced Friday she is divorcing her husband, Enrique Pena Nieto, two months after the end of his presidential term which was marred by scandals including one over a mansion provided to her by a government contractor.

Rivera is a former telenovela actor, and critics have long charged that the photogenic couple's marriage was a marketing strategy to burnish Pena Nieto's image for his 2012 presidential campaign.
