Frampton filed the divorce papers in L.A. County Superior Court citing irreconcilable differences.

Frampton and Elfers have one minor daughter together. Frampton is asking for joint legal custody ... but he wants primary physical custody to be awarded to Christina.

This is Frampton's third divorce ... the guitar hero broke off his marriage to Mary Lovett in 1973 and split from Barbara Gold in 1993.

@akm (Also Know as MORON)....when a couple has a child...you don't write "one minor daughter"...they just write "one daughter"...dude was snorting too much wax off his surf board when he/she wrote this!!!

Too bad. Peter, move out of Hillbilly Ohio. You're too sophisticated for that dump.

Give up - you are wrong and akm is right.

A minor child refers to a child under a certain age, so they are correct in their choice of wording.

You are just digging yourself in deeper and deeper.

He lost his appeal when he lost his frizzy hair. Perhaps he'll come alive as a single man.

Peter Frampton? Oh no! WHO CARES? Last time I saw him it was 1974. That was the last time anyone saw him. TMZ must be desparate. 15 years for a rock star is a hundred years for normal people.

Frampton's music may be good, but he's an a**hole. It's no wonder this is his third marriage. With any luck he'll go back to England.

So sad - saw him in concert tonight and it was an amazing show - he seems to be a good guy. I wish them both the best.

Maybe he can get back together with the first one to whom he vowed, "until death do us part". Once you've vowed that, the subsequent "marriages" would seem invalid. Always liked Peter a lot. He seems very sweet.

Why is there so much advertising on here? How silly---why is it allowed? they should screen and just not allow it. Is this the man who's son fell out of a hotel window as a toddler? Very sad story. He looks handsome and has aged well, but I think marriage is not for him. Even though people grow apart it is not a criteria for ending a marriage. sorry---it just is not.

I just hope they can be happy in their future lives and with their daughter- translated-> I don't care one iota? BTW- just saw him in concert Tuesday night in Bethlehem and I could tell something was wrong- he played All I Wanna Be- two times. That had to be a sign.

Third marriage dissolving??? I am sure Future Wife #4 is salivating in the wings, not realizing that Peter is a loser when it comes to marriage.

Susie-Q -- no, it was Eric Clapton's young son who fell to his death many years ago. As a result, Clapton wrote the heartbreaker, "Tears in Heaven."
