Neil Young

After 36 years of marriage, Neil Young and his wife Pegi are going their separate ways. The singer, 68, filed divorced papers in California in July, and a hearing is scheduled for Dec. 12.

The pair met in the 1970s while Pegi was working as a waitress at a diner near his California ranch.

Pegi is also a musician. She has released three solo albums since 2007 and was Neil's inspiration behind songs such as "Such a Woman" and "Unknown Legend."

Pegi often performed with her husband and took the stage with him in 2013 at the Bridge School Benefit concert, which she co-founded with Neil in the 1980s. The couple have two children, including a son with cerebral palsy, and The Bridge School educates children who have severe physical disabilities.

Neil also has a son with actress Carrie Snodgress. He was also born with cerebral palsy.

Neil released a cover song project, A Letter Home, earlier this year that he recorded at singer Jack White's studio.
