John Mellencamp and his wife Elaine Irwin are calling it quits after 20 years!
The couple’s spokesperson released a statement that read:
“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.”
I think it’s sad that after 20 years, a marriage is ending… but could they have picked another day to announce the news? On New Year’s Eve? What a way to remember the day.
Although a divorce hasn’t been announced, this would be the third divorce for Mellencamp who is a father of five. He and Elaine, a model and spokesperson for Almay cosmetics, have two sons together.
No other details were given about the reasons why the couple split. Mellencamp is 59 and Elaine is 41… do you think the age difference may have something to do with it?
Mellencamp’s latest album, “No Better Than This,” was released earlier this year.John Mellencamp who is a well known supporter of President Barack Obama will be going on a U S tour as early as next February.
They will continue to raise their two children in Indiana.
