12/30/2010 10:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John Mellencamp is ending his marriage of 20 years.

John and his wife, Elaine Mellencamp, a model, have split, although his rep isn't saying if they've filed divorce papers yet.

The couple says they "are proud of their 20 years together and are very happy with their accomplishments both as parents and as a family."

John and Elaine will continue to raise their two kids in Indiana.

A 20-year marriage is a good run for sure, so we ask ...

If it ended, it failed. Death is the only successful way out! LOL

WHAT???? This story is not about Lindsay, Michael Jackson or Chris Brown.

I thought that is all TMZ ever wrote about.

Something is very wrong here!!

Darlene nailed it. Divorce means it failed.

Cougar Mellonhead probably wanted to trade her in for a younger model.

I am disappointed to hear this but so it goes, I suppose. Maybe John is just tryin' to hold onto sixteen as hard as he can.

Any marriage that ends in divorce is a failure, duh.
But, any celebrity marriage that lasts 20 years is a freaking lifetime.

I actually saw melonhead say in an interview we shouuld have "talked" to hitler instead of attacking him. I guess he thinks we should "talk" to al quaeda and the taliban too. What a witless dhimmi (google it). I'm glad his wife is divorcing his azz, he us a clueless liberal fool and hope she takes as much as she can get.

I think she finally got sick of his hair.
Either that or he kept calling her Diane.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

47% of you think it was successful? Explain that successful-marriage-ends-in-divorce thing again? Idiots?!?

Took that blonde only 20 years to realize what a pompous, pious blowhard he is.

Wow, I am disappointed in reading this. Like FlamingoNut stated, 20 years of celebrity marriage is a lifetime!
