    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A friend says Elizabeth Edwards has separated from her husband, two-time presidential candidate John Edwards.

    Andrea Purse tells The Associated Press on behalf of Elizabeth Edwards that the couple has separated. Purse released a statement Wednesday that says Elizabeth is moving on with her life and wants to put this difficult chapter behind her.

    It comes as details emerge about a tell-all book from longtime John Edwards aide Andrew Young, who initially claimed he fathered a child with Edwards' mistress.

    John Edwards publicly declared last week that he was the one who fathered a child with Rielle Hunter, who worked as a videographer before his second presidential campaign.

    North Carolina law requires couples to be separated for a year before divorcing.
