Cameron Crowe and Wife Nancy Wilson Divorcing
Sadly, it’s the end of a marriage journey for director Cameron Crowe and his wife.
Nancy Wilson, singer of rock band “Heart,” has filed for divorce on Thursday from her filmmaker husband after nearly 24 years of marriage and several creative partnership together.
In her petition, filed Sept. 16 in L.A. Superior Court, Wilson cited irreconcilable differences as the reason of the split. She also said that they had been separated since June 2008.
56-year-old Wilson and Crowe are parents to 10-year-old twin sons, William and Curtis. She is asking the court for joint custody and the restoration of her legal name to Nancy Lamoureaux Wilson.
The singer-songwriter and her older sister Ann are the frontwomen for “Heart” since the early 1970s, who gained their famed for such classic-rock nuggets as “Barracuda,” “Magic Man” and “Crazy On You.” Heart’s latest album, “Red Velvet Car,” debuted at No. 10 on the U.S. pop chart last month, its best ranking in 20 years. One of the tracks, “Hey You,” was a love song 10 years in the making addressed to her husband.
Meanwhile, 53-year-old Crowe had won an Oscar for writing “Almost Famous,” a movie inspired by his own experiences as a teen reporter who traveled with Led Zeppelin for Rolling Stone magazine. His other credits include “Jerry Maguire,” “Singles” and “Say Anything.” Wilson had previously produced and composed music for a number of her husband’s films.
