Meet Elaine Mellencamp. The blonde beauty is John Mellencamp’s wife, but not for long. Here’s another celebrity breakup in 2010. What’s behind the split? Get the deets here plus see photos and a video of Elaine below.
What a year it’s been for celebs calling it quits on their marriages. But wait, the year is not over yet, I’m betting we’ll hear more breakups tomorrow, don’t ya think?
A statement was released today by their rep regarding their separation:
“John and Elaine Mellencamp are proud of their 20 years together and are very happy with their accomplishments both as parents and as a family. They will continue to raise their two children in Indiana but have decided to call it a day as a couple.”
There is no reason given as to why they are going their separate ways, and come on, just because they’re celebs doesn’t mean they have to divulge everything. If they want to keep that private, so be it.
20 years together is a long time by Hollywood standards, by any standards really, so kudos to them for staying together as long as they did. Let’s hope that their split is amicable, for the sake of the kids.
Just how did these two meet? She was the woman who was contracted to appear on the cover of his 1991 album, Whenever We Wanted. Theirs was a whirlwind romance — engaged just 10 weeks after meeting and they wed in 1992. The couple went on to have two boys, Hud, who is 16 and Speck, who is 15.
What do we know about Elaine Irwin Mellencamp? The beautiful 41 year old Pennsylvania native began modeling at 16 years of age and soon was appearing in print ads and commercials. Her gorgeous face has been seen on the covers of mags such as Vogue, Cosmo and Glamour, just to name a few. And yes, she has worked for Victoria’s Secret as well. What is she doing now, you ask? You can currently see her as the face for the cosmetic brand, Almay. Oh, and just in case you’re wondering what the, ahem, particulars are on this supermodel, no worries — we’ve got them for you. According to her profile on FMD, she stands at 5’11″ and boasts perfect measurements of 34-25-35. Those baby blue eyes are what draw you in, but I’m betting the men think differently.
It’s always sad to hear about a celebrity marriage coming to end. Tell me your thoughts on the news that Elaine Mellencamp will no longer be John Mellencamp’s wife. Photos and video are below.
