Mick Fleetwood goes his own way, separates from wife
Mick Fleetwood has filed for legal separation from his wife of more than 17 years in Los Angeles, according to the Associated Press. And of course, it looks like it could be a messy situation. And that's no little lie.
According to records, the Fleetwood Mac drummer and Lynn Frankel Fleetwood have been married since July 1995 and have twin 11-year-old daughters. Mick wants joint legal custody but will allow his estranged wife to have physical custody of their children -- okay, a civilized start -- but he also wants sole control of music royalties and other earnings from before their marriage.
Something tells me Lynn and her legal representation will want to chat further about that. Well, Mike, I'm sure your Fleetwood Mac bandmates will have plenty of good (and bad) advice for you in the coming weeks. (Maybe skip asking Stevie.)
