Los Angeles, CA, United States (CNS) – John Mellencamp and wife Elaine Mellencamp are ending their near-20-year marriage.
John, 59, and Elaine, 41, have split but will reportedly remain in Indiana to raise their two kids, Hud and Speck. According to TMZ, Mellencamp’s rep won’t say if they’ve filed divorce papers.
John and Elaine met when she was hired to appear on the cover of Mellencamp’s 1991 album “Whenever We Wanted.” The two were engaged 10 weeks later.
“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,” the couple’s rep said in a statement.
Elaine, a model, continues to work as the face of Almay Cosmetics, while Mellencamp is touring his latest critically-acclaimed release, this year’s “No Better Than This.”
