Karen Danczuk attracted media attention for repeatedly posting revealing selfies online and has 54,000 followers on Twitter - far more than Mr Danczuk. She has previously declared herself ‘Queen of the Selfie’.
She told The Sun: "Needless to say I am gutted by our decision to split after eight years together and three years of marriage."
The couple, who have two children together, married in 2012.
Simon Danczuk has spearheaded a campaign against high-profile paedophiles, including the late MP Cyril Smith.
According to the Sun, he said that no one else was involved in their breakup.
