Randy Travis and his wife-manager Elizabeth Travis have divorced, family spokesperson, Maureen O'Connor, confirmed to the Associated Press on Friday.

Though no reason for the divorce was given, an earlier statement from the couple said that though the two had parted ways, Elizabeth would still be the singer's personal manager. The former couple also said they will have no further comment and asked for "respect for their privacy during this time."

Randy filed a petition for dissolution of marriage in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Thursday; the couple has a home in Santa Fe. The petition requests an equal split of assets. It doesn't, however, give any insight into the breakup other than a quick statement: "a state of incompatibility exists between the parties."

Randy and Elizabeth met in the mid-1970s when Randy won a talent contest at a nightclub owned by Elizabeth and her first husband in Charlotte, North Carolina. They moved together to Nashville in the early 1980s and married in 1991.
