Neil Young

Divorcing After 35 Years

Neil Young is bailing on his wife after over 35 years of marriage, but he's not turning his back on their son ... an adult with special needs.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer filed to divorce singer-songwriter Pegi Young, citing irreconcilable differences. They got hitched back in 1978, and separated this past April.

In his divorce docs, Young makes no mention of paying Pegi alimony ... but says they've agreed that both will continue to support their adult son, Ben, who has cerebral palsy. (Neil actually has two adult kids with CP ... the other is from a previous relationship.)

Pegi wants more than that ... in addition to child support, she's filed docs seeking spousal support.

Well deserved. She taking care of someone that needs 24 hour care and also all the expenses involved and she needs spousal support because she can't work

Neil, you shouldn't divorce this woman . . . don't do it man. After all, how many women are willing to be with a man whose head looks like a past it's prime potato.

Neil is close to 70 - not so young anymore. I hate to see older people divorce. For many, it's especially difficult to start over at an older age. But, I guess it's better than living in an unhappy relationship.

Apparently southern boys aren't the only ones who don't need him around anymore!
