John Mellencamp has filed for divorce from his third wife.

A three-page petition against Elaine Irwin-Mellencamp was filed in southern Indiana on January 14, two weeks after the couple announced that they were splitting after 18 years of marriage, the Brown County clerk's office told The Herald-Times of Bloomington.

The 59-year-old Jack And Diane singer married Elaine on September 5, 1992, and they have two teenage sons, Hud and Speck Mellencamp.

Mellencamp and his first wife, Priscilla French, had one daughter, Michelle. The US rocker has two other daughters, Teddi Jo and Justice, with his second wife, Victoria. The couple divorced in 1990.

Mellencamp's latest album, No Better Than This, was released earlier this year.

Whether you're in a business or romantic relationship, you should make a plan for the future together. Consolidating your debts and putting yourself on a strict repayment plan are among the possibilities. Instead of worrying how your situation will appear to others, think about what will be best for you. Making a fresh start will draw you and your partner closer together.More
