LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Heart rocker Nancy Wilson filed for divorce from her filmmaker husband Cameron Crowe on Thursday after 24 years of marriage, online news reports said.
Wilson’s filing, in Los Angeles County Superior Court, cited irreconcilable differences and said the couple had been separated since June 2008. They have 10-year-old twin sons.
Wilson, 56, and her older sister Ann are the frontwomen for Heart, the group famed for such classic-rock nuggets as “Barracuda,” “Magic Man” and “Crazy On You.”
Heart’s latest album, “Red Velvet Car,” debuted at No. 10 on the U.S. pop chart last month, its best ranking in 20 years. One of the tracks, “Hey You,” was a love song 10 years in the making addressed to her husband.
Crowe, 53, won an Oscar for writing “Almost Famous,” a movie inspired by his own experiences as a teen reporter who traveled with Led Zeppelin for Rolling Stone magazine. His other credits include “Jerry Maguire,” “Singles” and “Say Anything.” Wilson contributed to some of the movie scores.
They met in 1982, introduced by Heart’s then-manager; the same year, Wilson briefly appeared in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” a movie written by Crowe. They were married at Ann Wilson’s home in Seattle in July 1986.
