R&B singer Rockwell's marriage lasted longer than his music career, but now that's over too -- the "Somebody's Watching Me" singer has filed for divorce from his wife of almost 3 years.

49-year-old Rockwell -- son of Motown founder Berry Gordy -- is divorcing Nicole Moore, citing irreconcilable differences. According to docs the couple married in July 2010.

The couple has no children together, and Rockwell is asking to NOT pay spousal support.

FYI (to people under 30): Rockwell -- real name Kennedy Gordy -- is a quintessential 80s one hit wonder thanks to "Somebody's Watching Me" ... which featured Michael Jackson.

At least he got to work with MJ.

This dude also took advantage of MJ. MJ agreed to sing the songs chorus which was to be mixed with other background singers, but rather then honoring that, they released the song with MJ singing the chorus alone. These dudes were friends when they were growing up, but everyone was out to take a piece of Michael for themselves.

Oh darn. What happened? Did she accidently use his expensive Loreal mascara instead of her cheapie maybelline? Did she use the last bit Jerri Curl Juice?

If you feel like this guy you are probably in the Amanda Bynes club. Paranoid Schizophrenic.

Um... Michael Jackson isn't featured in this song. It's Rockwell doing his best MJ impression.

Here's a Rockwell story for you all. I was staying at the Palm Spring******on when I was a teenager, back in the 80's and Rockwell happened to be staying there as well. Thinking back, it was actually around the 4th of July. What's funny is that he was there with two of the skankiest groupie chicks I have ever seen. I actually hung out with Rockwell and his ladies in the hot tub a few times. Here's an image for you, his ladies are dressed in Leopard print butt floss bikinis with like a half inch strip in the front to cover the business and tiny little nipple swatches on the top side. Anyone else remember these sleazy bikini's? Here's the kicker, Rockwell was wearing a matching Leopard print Speedo to boot. In Rockwell's defense, he WAS packing a trouser snake and looked to be somewhat ripped. I also remember he never got his hair wet. It was probably because he didn't want to mess up that Soul Glow - Jheri Curl thing he had going on.
On a side note, don't you think this song is very topical right now with all the NSA bull**** going on? Maybe it's time for a Rockwell comeback?
