NASHVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Rocker John Mellencamp has filed for divorce.

The Brown County Clerk's office in southern Indiana tells The Herald-Times of Bloomington that a three-page petition against Elaine Irwin-Mellencamp was filed on Jan. 14, two weeks after the couple announced that they were splitting after 18 years of marriage.

Irwin-Mellencamp is 59-year-old Mellencamp's third wife. They married on Sept. 5, 1992, and have two teenage sons, Hud and Speck Mellencamp.

Mellencamp and his first wife, Priscilla French, had one daughter, Michelle. Mellencamp has two other daughters, Teddi Jo and Justice, with his second wife, Victoria. The couple divorced in 1990.

Mellencamp's latest album, "No Better Than This," was released earlier this year.
