Nelson Bro to Wife -- Get Outta My Hair!

3/11/2009 6:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Matthew NelsonMatthew Nelson, the long, blonde haired guy from the 90s band Nelson, is pulling the plug on his marriage ... and get this -- the former rocker is the one asking for spousal support.

Nelson filed for divorce in L.A. County Superior Court on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences with his wife Yvette Stefens -- a former model who also played in the 2005 Lingerie Bowl.

Matthew and Yvette were married in 1995 ... about 4 years after the band had already ceased to be relevant.

I have to agree with #30. I have seen the "boys" many, many times and have actually met them a few times. I remember them, they of course not me. But I was holding a baby and Matt came over and asked to hold her and we just talked and talked. I am a HUGE fan of their fathers and when I saw the guys for the first time at the Crazy Horse in CA at a songwriters concert, it was amazing. They have a huge following here and if they are ever around, you have to get your tickets early because they sell out. I am sorry to hear of any marriage that goes south and very sorry to hear of this one too. They are not the band of the 80's anymore, they are better. The harmonys, guitar playing etc....is great. They are very talented as is the whole family. Not a lot of family has had their kinds of careers...singing, filling concert halls, big band eras and acting.....don't forget Tracy Nelson too.....and Sam, met him in Margaritaville....he was a lot younger then as we all were

Here's some gossip for you. My cousin was working this last Monday night at a big restaraunt opening in L A and supposely Yvette Nelson was there looking very together with the Star Jonathon Meyer from the show Tudors. I wonder if that's a new thing or why they're not staying married? Hopefully not.

I met Matthew in the early 90s in Texas when he and Gunnar were still touring as "Nelson." I can honestly say that I was surprised by his emotional depth and a bit saddened by his tales of an unhappy childhood. I was surprised to see what kind of girl he had married. (You know, Cindy C. was his dream girl.) I was 19, he 24, the first time we met. He was the most down to Earth guy I had ever, or would ever, meet. Good luck in love...It's all the matters in the end, anyway. P.S. I still have the photos from the radio station, Matthew (along with some good advice & great times you had given me). Best wishes to Tracy & Sam :-)
