Rocker John Mellencamp has split from his wife of 18 years.
The veteran songwriter's spokesperson announced on Thursday (30Dec10) that the star and his supermodel wife Elaine had parted ways.
The statement reads, "John and Elaine Mellencamp are proud of their 20 years together and are very happy with their accomplishments both as parents and as a family. They will continue to raise their two children in Indiana but have decided to call it a day as a couple."
The pair met when Elaine was hired to appear on the cover of his 1991 album Whenever We Wanted and they wed the following year (92). The couple went on to have two sons together, Hud and Speck. No reason has been given for their split.
