Mellencamp to divorce third wife

John Mellencamp and wife Elaine are to be divorced

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.
