Neil Young Files For Divorce From Wife Of 36 Years



The famous Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Neil Young has filed for divorce from Pegi Young, his wife of 36 years.

According to Rolling Stone magazine, the 68-year-old filed divorce papers on July 29 in San Mateo, California, where the couple lived. The hearing is set to take place on December 12.

The pair spent more than three and a half decades together and have two children, son Ben and daughter Amber. Since Ben suffers from cerebral palsy, they were inspired by their son’s ailment and founded the Bridge School in 1986, a non-profit organization for children with severe speech and physical impairments.

Neil and Pegi were also frequent musical collaborators, often touring together and even performing together during the 1994 Academy Awards.

Additionally, Pegi is the inspiration behind Neil’s songs “Such a Woman”, “Once an Angel”, and most notably, “Unknown Legend”.
