Neil Young has filed for divorce to end his 36-year marriage to wife Pegi.
Neil Young, 68, filed divorce papers in California at the end of last month and a hearing is scheduled for December 12.
Pegi Morton Young, 61, who has often performed with her husband, last took the stage with Neil Young at last year’s Bridge School Benefit concert, which she co-founded with her husband in the mid-1980s.
Neil Young met Pegi when she was working as a waitress at a diner near his California ranch.
Inspired by Neil Young, Pegi has also enjoyed musical success, releasing three solo albums since 2007, and she also served as the singer/songwriter’s muse for his tracks like Such a Woman and Unknown Legend.
