The founder and drummer of Fleetwood Mac files for legal separation from wife Lynn Susan Frankel Fleetwood and asks for spousal support.
Mick Fleetwood and wife Lynn Susan Frankel Fleetwood are ending their marriage. The 65-year-old drummer of legendary Fleetwood Mac has filed for legal separation from his third wife whom he had been married to for nearly 18 years.
According to court documents, Mick cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. The rocker is also seeking joint legal custody of their now-11-year-old twin daughters, Ruby and Tessa, although he wants Lynn to have primary physical custody.
The musician also wants spousal support from Lynn, despite his band selling 100 million albums. He claims all of his premarital musical royalties and memorabilia are his property.
Mick and Lynn tied the knot on July 26, 1995, and have the twins together. From his prior marriage to Jenny Boyd, whom he divorced twice, Mick has two daughters, Amy and Lucy.
Mick and his band are currently in the middle of their latest tour around U.S. and Canada which will end in Detroit on June 12.
