There have been a couple of news reports speculating that the marriage between billionaire Las Vegas entrepreneur Steve Wynn and his wife Elaine has come to an end... again.

While gossip isn't usually the stuff of betting news, the fact that Steve owns both Wynn Las Vegas and Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, and Elaine is a director on the board of Wynn Resorts, does make what happens between them a matter of interest to many -- especially stock holders.

According to Page 6 of the New York Post, the two separated several months ago and have been trying to keep it quiet. The report does say the two remain on friendly terms.

An official with Wynn, who asked not to be identified, would not confirm or deny but rather said regardless – business would continue as before.

The couple first married in 1963 and divorced in 1986. They remarried five years later.
