Bryan Ferry - Bryan Ferry and Amanda Sheppard have split

Bryan Ferry has reportedly split from his wife Amanda Sheppard.

The 67-year-old rocker and the 30-year-old brunette beauty only got married last year, but their relationship has already hit the rocks and the former PR is moving out of their shared home after months of constant bickering drove a wedge between them.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''They haven't seen eye-to-eye for a long time and drifted apart. It made sense for Amanda to move out and think about starting a new life without Bryan.''

The couple - who began dating in 2009 after being introduced through one of Bryan's sons - tied the knot in a lavish-but-simple private ceremony in the Caribbean on January 4 2012 and, despite their 37-year age gap, the Roxy Music frontman was over the moon after landing himself a younger woman.

He said last year: ''The interesting thing is - and I don't want to say the wrong thing in case I get into trouble with my girlfriend - you never really meet people your own age who aren't married.

''I'm very fortunate that I work in music, where you're in touch with different age groups, either the audience or people you work with. It does help. Obviously I'm not ageist!''

This was Bryan's second marriage after he previously wedded Lucy Helmore - who is 14 years his junior - and had four children, Otis, Tara, Isaac and Merlin with her, before going on to date Jerry Hall until she struck up an affair with Sir Mick Jagger two years later.
