Kennedy Jr., was found dead today at 52 at her Bedford, N.Y. home.

It has since been revealed that the 2010 divorce had not been finalized between the couple, though it's not clear what the holdup was. Robert has allegedly since moved on from his 16-year marriage with actress Cheryl Hines. The new couple made their debut at the Riverkeeper's Annual Fishermen's Ball in NYC in April.

Mary Kennedy's death was first reported earlier today, though police did not initially confirm the identity of the body. Shortly after, Mary's family released a statement.

"We deeply regret the death of our beloved sister Mary, whose radiant and creative spirit will be sorely missed by those who loved her," Mary Kennedy's family said in a statement released through a lawyer. "Our heart goes out to her children who she loved without reservation. We have no further comment at this time."

Mary and Kennedy Jr., who's the son of former Senator Robert Kennedy and the nephew of President John F. Kennedy, was 52. The couple had been married for 16 years before divorcing back in 2010. They have four children together.

At the time of their divorce, the couple was involved in a "domestic incident" that alleged Mary was intoxicated. Police were called to the home. Three days later, Mary was arrested for a DUI after running over a curb in front of her home. Months later, she was charged with driving under the influence of prescription medication.
