Enquirer: Chelsea Clinton’s husband is headed for a mental breakdown


Earlier this month, The Enquirer and Star Magazine began questioning the state of Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mazvinsky’s six-month-old marriage. Marc had quit his job in New York, and it seems that he was spending his new “free time” skiing in Wyoming while is wife stayed in New York. Words like “crisis” and “annulment” were thrown around in the tabloid reporting, and shortly after the stories broke, Marc was back in New York, attending glitzy event with Chelsea. But… the tabloids still smell blood in the water. This week’s National Enquirer reports that members of Marc’s family are “concerned” that he’s headed for some kind of psychological breakdown.

Chelsea Clinton’s husband is headed to a mental hospital, friends fear, as a bitter feud between their families adds more fuel to their ongoing marriage woes. Chelsea is desperately trying to keep the problems out of the public eye by smiling for the cameras as she parades her husband Marc around New York. But Marc is not the same person ever since he high-tailed it back to Chelsea’s side.

In an exclusive interview two weeks ago, Marc’s first cousin Andrea Mezvinsky talked about him “undergoing a crisis” and revealed family members were deeply concerned that he was cracking up.

Sources say Marc has been deepluy troubled that the Clinton clan encouraged him to break ties with her father, former Iowa congressman and convicted felon Ed Mezvinsky – and that he seems headed for a breakdown that they believe will land him in a psychiatric ward. The sources added that Marc’s dad, not out of jail, blames Bill and Hillary for his son’s problems.

“The things that have happened to Ed since this whole Clinton situation took place are unthinkable! He’s been treated ina disgusting way by everybody involved, and he’s very upset,” Margot Mezvinsky, Ed’s daughter from his first marriage and Marc’s half-sister, tells the Enquirer.

Marc allegedly flew to Wyoming after a knock-down fight with Chelsea, all about starting a family. Now, with the interfamily bitterness deepening, “there’s fear Marc is headed to a mental hospital… in public, Chelsea is taking Marc everywhere, but behind the scenes, he’s depressed.

[From The National Enquirer, print edition]

Eh. Here’s my take: I think Marc probably is having some kind of moment, some kind of depression or crisis. I think Chelsea and the Clintons wouldn’t be pouncing on every story and denying everything unless there was something there. But I don’t think Marc is headed for some massive breakdown or anything – he probably just needs a vacation (with his wife), needs some sleep, and maybe some talk therapy, or some antidepressants, and a new job.

    I bet there’s a lot more to this story. I’d have a breakdown too if the Clintons were my in-laws.

  2. brin says:

    Yeah…if the Clintons don’t like his parents, why are they complaining now.
    This just seems so strange.

  3. Shay says:

    I second that. There’d be no way I’d reach a stage where the Clintons were my in-laws. No amount of fame or money or potential nepotism that would naturally arise, would be worth it.

  4. The Truth Fairy says:

    This whole thing is very very strange.

  5. Quest says:

    He needs Chelsea to be a freak in the bed and get laid more often

  6. brin says:

    He’s not running for office (that we know of), he’s their son-in-law.

  7. Rita says:

    Man-up for God’s sake! You’ve been handed the world on a silver platter. Do something constructive with it.

    • Connie Mitchell says:

      Thank you. What’s wrong with these “rich” boys? They never seem to be satisfied. Is he a man or a mouse. He needs to take charge of the situation.
      Also, didn’t the Clintons know (before they these two got married) that this guy’s dad is in jail? Why wait now to pressure him to diss his dad – if that’s true.

      Look at the monies these tow have. What’s their problem.

  8. Cat says:

    Ah, I feel bad for Chelsea. I hope it’s all over blown. Really thought they’d make a go at it. 😐

  9. Jackson says:

    I hope the tabloids are making something out of nothing. I like Chelsea and wish them both the best. And yeah, I’d take a Secretary of State and a former President of the United States as my in-laws any day of the week.

  10. Leticia says:

    Rita, yeah, he needs to get a grip.

    I feel a little sorry for these two because of their parents. And this guy’s dad did prison time. Yikes. But he should still man-up and make the most of the doors that open to him due to marrying into the Clinton family. And why does the pressure come as a shock to him? He’s known the Clintons for years.

  11. lacy says:

    What’s up with these idiots blowing millions on a wedding just to turn around and divorce? It’s ridiculous. I no longer attend weddings because they are a farce these days. A big fat lying joke.

  12. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    AWWW Come on.. He knew what he was getting into! He dated her for many years.

    As Rita said ‘MAN UP’!

  13. L says:

    They’ve known each other since they were 16. They’ve dated for years. I find it very VERY hard to believe that family/faith stuff hasn’t come up before then. If anything (and I say this as a person that likes the Clintons), it would have been vetted and discussed way before to protect the Clinton image.

    He’s having a little post-wedding meltdown (it happens to alot of couples) They need to take a vacation and get back on track.

    And I”m sorry, but if my cousin was chatting to the ENQUIRER about me, I would be mega pissed.

  14. Roma says:

    @L: I don’t know, I’ve found it very odd that they got married during the Sabbath (just doesn’t seem like his religion was respected). Interfaith marriages can be tough and things come up after you’ve said I do that months of dating don’t necessarily revel.

    He looks off, that’s for sure.

  15. Whatever says:

    “And I”m sorry, but if my cousin was chatting to the ENQUIRER about me, I would be mega pissed.”

    Oh, me too! I can’t believe these fringe relations running to the tabloids all the time. Crazy. Her comments make me think that they aren’t close and she is repeating and embellishing family gossip. As for the father, the locked up former congressman, he can blame the Clintons, but maybe it was HIS actions that caused the problem. Of course, Marc’s father won’t take responsibility, the hallmark of a true congressional douchenozzle! No surprise there.

    As far as their marriage, who knows what happens behind closed doors? I don’t think he looks off, any more than he does in all his pictures. He seems to bring the deer in the headlights eyes all the time from what I can see. I hope they can work their shit out because I like Chelsea. And yeah, I’d take Bill and Hillary as my inlaws too, they seem cool.

  16. Leticia says:

    His risking offending the Clintons makes me think he really is mentally unstable. I wouldn’t want them for enemies, they are too powerful.

  17. Pix says:

    They say that the first year of marriage is the hardest. I feel bad for both of them, although I doubt that the Clinton family has much to do with his break-down. I hope they work through this.

  18. guesty says:

    wow. wonder wth is going on? in-laws can be such a major problem.

  19. Snazzy says:

    If this IS true, then I wish them both the best. I’m dating a man that is going through a bout of depression and it’s VERY hard to deal with someone like that. They have no hope for the future or even themselves. And no matter how much you tell them to “man up”, it’s up to them to want to get better.

  20. Crash2GO2 says:

    Wow, that was hard to read – I’m confused. His father is in jail?? I confess I have not kept up with this story at all.

  21. mln76 says:

    He definitely doesn’t look happy but I am thinking with the amount of time they’ve known eachother the subject of both of their family’s issues would have come up. I tend to think whatever is going on they’ll work it out.

  22. Lardy Chops says:

    His eyes look weird. I suspect there is more of this story to come.

  23. PrettyTarheel says:

    Frankly, I can’t believe the Clintons approved Chelsea marrying the son of a jailbird. Yes, I know, it’s not fair to judge the son by the father, but Hillary runs that family with a iron glove, and I’m amazed that she approved!
    I wouldn’t mind having Bill for a FIL, seems like he could drink a beer, smoke a bowl and watch the Super Bowl like real folks, but Hillary would be the fly in the soup (or chili, or whatever got served on Super Bowl Sunday).

  24. Henry says:

    If you think his eyes look weird look at the guy behind him ! Anyway, just hope he doesn’t chop her in peices and throw her in the Hudson River.

  25. malachais says:

    I get that he lost his job, that can be devastating especially after just getting married and having sucessful in-laws, but he really should try to keep it together emotionally. If nothing else Bill and Hillary know have great contacts that can help him find a great job. I find it kind of sleazy that his half-sister is blabbing to the Enguirer, his family wants to create drama for Chelsea and Marc.

  26. Relli says:

    Ok i am going to admit something here, I am from Iowa and had no idea who his father is, so i had to run to Wikipedia real quick to see the connection. He was like a two term congressman in the 70’s so the supposed estrangement due to political issues seems way out of left field. I am more inclined to believe that maybe Chelsae’s parents are a bit too involved in their relationship or they just are not happy. I know a lot of my friends struggled with that first year of marriage. But i with lardy Chops, his eyes looked straight crazy, like drugged I am guessing maybe there is an addiction issue here. Oh no Chelsea one of those “i can save the him, woman”. Maybe!

  27. normades says:

    Regardless of what you think of the Clintons politicly or what Bill did personally, Chelsea has always been very close to her parents and she was raised well. This isn’t the Lohans we’re talking about. I believe Bill and Hil have always been good parents.

    Those two dated for years, I’m sure they’ll work it out.

  28. REALIST says:

    Get an annulment-who wants a dad who’s not present for his wife or kids.
    Parents aside, I have never thought of Chelsea as anything but decent-she has probably been a mini-diplomat her whole life.
    But Kaiser, I hope you’re right…

  29. DGO says:

    Marc married beneath himself. Run, Marc, run!

    • Connie Mitchell says:

      Marc cannot cope with the super-rich Clintons. However, he left his job and went to Wyoming to ski while Chelsea stayed in school. What’s his problem.

      Also, they dated for years. Something is not right. If the Clintons had a problem with Marc, Chelsea should not have married him The blessings of the parents are always important to help make a marriage succeed.

  30. Cleo says:

    She and Hayden Pannetierre look better with their original big curly hair.

  31. hellen says:

    He looks very troubled. I wonder if he agreed to get married under duress (for whatever reason). Sometimes people figure that getting married after living with somebody for a while will not change things much, but instead they find a whole new dynamic at work.

    Was this his response to marriage and potential parenthood, making a run for the (Wyoming) hills?

  32. melinda says:

    I also think they need a little vacation TOGETHER. It’s been a stressful year with high expectations on both of them. If this is true, it needs to be nipped in the bud now while they are trying to build the foundation of their marriage. I wish the best for them.

  33. gistine says:

    He realizes what an evil empire he has married into. The Clintons are all about the New World Order – and they are freemasons. Wake up y’all to the evil that’s around us! I’m serious. The elite have plans for us peons and they aren’t good. Pay attention to the satanism in Hollywood! Open your eyes and God bless.

  34. mauibound says:

    Oh Lord please….

    Freakin conspiracy theorist.

  35. gistine says:


    Do all the namecalling you wish. I am entitled to my opinion. I was once like you and then I educated myself and what I have learned is truly frightening.

    The truth is out there if you choose open your eyes and acknowledge it. This dude knows it. Look at him!

    God bless you.

  36. Roma says:

    Those damn freemasons – they had to up and create the Shriners. I, for one, believe that sick kids should just stay sick.

    Am I right?

  37. Kiska says:

    Perhaps he just is predisposed to depression. It happens and there is no shame in it. I hope he gets well and can avoid the vultures.

  38. MSMLNP says:

    He has very sad eyes.

    And Pix: the “they” you refer to who say the first year of marriage is the hardest are either wrong or have only been married for a year. That is still part of the honeymoon in my eyes.

  39. Belle Epoch says:

    #14 Roma, all the way! I think it’s duelling families.

    Imagine a large Orthodox Jewish family battling over their favorite son with the high-profile Clintons. Obviously The Family thinks the marriage is their business. And the Clintons don’t take shit from anyone. Oy.

    Chelsea doesn’t have brothers and sisters to go to – just her parents. At least they aren’t going to run their mouths off to the press!

    I hope they make it. They looked OK at the wedding. He needs a job.

  40. JenJen says:

    Seems to me like the Clinton’s didn’t judge him by his father’s mistakes and welcomed him into the family. He needs to man up and earn it now. If he can’t, he can move to Iowa (or wherever his father is in prison) and not have to worry about being bothered.

  41. lachica says:

    folks need to leave them alone to work their stuff out. stop meddling. i won’t even speculate. just give them some breathing room.

  42. alexandra says:

    he looks miserable, pale, yeah, that is how a newlywed should look

  43. fwozbo says:

    Yes, he seems just lost. He’s just having his mid-life crisis early. Someone else said it – he needs a job, or at least a job he actually likes even if it isn’t on Wall Street. If he was laid off then I can understand his depression.

    Chelsea looks the best she has ever looked.

  44. Melinda says:

    Do I have to reiterate? The first year is hard for those that have great expectations. You don’t have to be a Clinton to have that. To those that say the first year is so easy, did you have to live up to serious expectations and worry about disappointing?Did you both have to hold down respectable careers? buy a nice home, and keep everything together no muss no fuss? Its hard. That’s not to say it’s not rewarding, but geez. Give them a chance. They’re both probably under a lot of stress. Can you say you wouldnt be?

  45. anonymous says:

    I wish them the best. Chelsea seems like a great smart girl and her parents are a real power couple of our time. Yea he knew what he was getting into here, at the same time maybe they both felt pressure to get married when they weren’t ready. I hope they can make it work, im sure it’s not easy for either of them always being in the spotlight as Chelsea has always shunned it personally. Yea this is Not an easy situation for both.. She should’ve hooked up with a Kennedy, they’re all high achievers as well, have a family rep to protect the same way and they could create their own family dynasty and do alot of good and wow a child from that union would be like a second coming of John John or Caroline.
    I personally was surprised when i read that she was marrying someone whos father was in jail, was bound to cause some drama.

  46. mia says:

    In spite of all the Chelsea-love on this post, Chelsea is most likely is one crazy woman when she is crossed. Its Chelsea’s way or the highway! That is why Marc looks like a deer in the headlights.

  47. Ilsa says:

    I like Chelsea Clinton but I grew up in a district represented by Marc’s mom and you don’t have the whole truth here. Marc is a result of two blended families (for a total of like 10 kids) and while it’s true that his dad is a criminal, his mom is NO PRIZE either. This is a really sad situation because while I don’t know Marc at all, I do know that with all the parents/politicians involved they are only concerned about their images – not his mental health. It is very sad.
