Edie Brickell Paul Simon

All is well at the Simon-Brickell household, where all charges of disorderly conduct have been dropped. The musical couple was charged back in April, after being arrested on the evening of April 26. That night, Edie’s mother called the police to report a “family dispute.”

Paul Simon - Everything is just about alright at the Simon-Brickelle household.

Upon the officers’ arrival, Brickell and Simon were cooperative and the arrest was made by summons – that is, neither musician was put in jail, they were both just called to court. Later that week, the pair made their court appearance and held hands throughout the proceedings – the whole incident seemed forgotten.

Grammy winner Paul Simon and his wife Edie Brickell have been going through some marital trouble lately. The two appeared in court on Monday to face domestic violence charges stemming from a dispute at their New Canaan home Saturday night.

Steve Martin - Love Has Come For You Review

Cynics might say that his choice of collaborator makes sense, given that both he and Edie Brickell both peaked in a showbiz sense during the late 1980's, the latter with The New Bohemians on the multi-platinum Shooting Rubber Bands At The Stars. This would be unbelievably harsh as individually each has remained enshrined in lesser spotlights, sustaining themselves on more idiosyncratic pursuits.
