Vanessa Rousso, Chad Brown Separate

One of the poker world's great romances has come to an end after Vanessa Rousso and Chad Brown announced their separation on Tuesday after slightly more than two years of marriage.

"Despite great mutual fondness and respect, Chad and I have separated. We will always be friends and I cherish the memories we have together.

While we appreciate the support of friends and fans, Chad and I ask that you respect our privacy at this time.", Rousso told to her 39,000 Twitter followers on Tuesday.

According to Hendon Mob, both Rousso and Brown have earned around $3.5M from live-tournaments during their careers.

In February 2011, Brown was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Liposarcoma. The cancer causes tumors to grow in the deep soft tissue of the human body. In Brown’s case, the tumor was located in his abdomen and, after surgery, was found to be a ten-pound mass, which was removed.
