Elaine Mellencamp and John Mellencamp in happier times

Sad news from celebrity land: After a spate of engagements earlier this week (Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, LeAnn Rhimes), it looks like the breakup bug is back. Elaine Mellencamp and John Mellencamp have separated after 18 years and two sons. There’s no word yet whether they will file for divorce. So why did the Mellencamps separate?

They’re mum on the reason for the breakup, but as we’ve seen over the past year, longtime couples like George Lopez and his wife and Tipper and Al Gore are just as likely to split as new ones.

Elaine Mellencamp met John when she modeled for the cover of his 1991 album “Whenever We Wanted,” and they got engaged after just 10 weeks together, marrying in 1992.

Elaine continued to model over the years and is still the face of Almay.
