The romantic lives of many of the famous can be depressing to watch. Looking down the list of celebrity engagement announcements to come in the last few months, you have to wonder how many of them will really last. But the saddest part is watching a long standing couple who have beat the Hollywood odds calling it quits, like John Mellencamp and his wife Elaine.
According to their rep, divorce papers have yet to be filed but the marriage is definitely over. He gave a statement to E! News this morning:
“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.”
The singer and supermodel have been together for 20 long years and have two children, sons named Hud and Speck. Mellencamp also has three daughters from two previous marriages, Teddi Jo, Justice and Michelle.
