John Mellencamp and Elaine Irwin Mellencamp have decided to call it quits after 20 years of marriage.
It’s the third failed marriage for the 59-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and the first for Almay model Elaine.
“They are both devastated and upset about it, but it was really her decision,” a source tells UsMagazine.com.
John and Elaine have two sons together, Hud and Speck. In a statement to E! Online, John’s rep said, “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.”
John has a daughter Michelle from his first marriage to Priscilla Esterline (1970-81) and two daughters from his second marriage to Victoria Granucci (1981-89). John and Elaine wed in 1992.
Doesn’t anyone stay together anymore?
