As a biography, Paul Anka is an American songwriter who was born in Ottawa, Ontario Canada on July 30, 1941, which makes him to be 68 years of age. In 1990, he became a naturalized citizen and since then has made his career in the United States as a singer and songwriter.

Anka actually started out as a teen idol back in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Remember the songs “Diana'”, “Lonely Boy”, and “Put Your Head on My Shoulder”? Yep, those songs were courtesy of Mr. Anka. Other songwriting credits include the theme for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and Tom Jones’ song “She’s a Lady”. Just recently it was revealed that the Michael Jackson song titled “This Is It” was written by Paul.

In his personal life things aren’t going so sweetly. Apparently on Thursday morning the cops received two 911 calls about a domestic dispute between Paul and his wife Anna. According to law enforcement and TMZ, 2 calls came in from the couple’s mansion in Thousand Oaks, California around 7:49 AM.

The good news is that there were no beat downs (or at least no visible injuries) or arrest, but a big fat argument created a ton of tension in the Anka household.

So just what started the argument and led the dispute to turn nasty? Well, Anka is saying that he and Anna were and have been having some problems for months. Apparently he has been living in the nearest hotel due to the couple’s recent feuds. The argument is said to have started after he he and his wife began arguing over the maid, who Anna had fired the day before. Yikes!

Anna is said to have called for help via 911 because in an argument that had happened between her and Anka the night before she didn’t want an escalated ordeal. Reason being? Anka pulled a gun on her.

However video surveillance showed a different story with no such incident having had taken place.
At any rate, none of this sounds good. In most recent news, the American songwriter is said to have filed for divorce. This is probably the wisest solution in this case. We wish Paul Anka and his wife best of luck!
